    S 9 : Ep 1 - 9/28/02

    In the middle of the wilderness, at the base of a mountain a ways from the road, Monica and Tess discuss the derfect decor for a remote hotel. Meanwhile, in Glendale, Joe Collette arrive at his former home to pick up his 16 year old son Ricky, for a weekend camping trip. Joe's separation from his wife, Sandra, has had a negative effect on the whole family, but mostly Ricky, who acquired a drug problem and then spent sixteen weeks in rehab. The two of them hit the road despite Ricky's enthusiasm. Several hours into the trip. Joe stops the car to stretch his legs and check his map. As he and his son stand outside of their vehicle, a tiny asteroid, smashes through their windshield of their SUV cutting a hole straight through the seat and floor. Andrew shows up, with a tow truck, but even he is surprised by the reason for the breakdown. He offers to take their car to the nearest town, and drop them off at a little hotel that he knows. Tess and Monica check them in and settle them into their rooms, but they aren't the only guest this weekend. Just before dinner, a motorcycle roars up to the door, and a little old lady named Mildred hops off. She's ridden through this area for years with her late husband, and she's never seen this place. She wants to know where it came from, who's running it and how she can go about getting a room. Later that evening, Joe tries to connect with his son, inviting him to take a walk with him, but Ricky refuses. He blames his father for all of his troubles. Joe walks off eventually coming upon Gloria, who has setup a telescope outside, she has no trouble engaging the astronomy-loving Joe in an in depth conversation about the cosmos, and asteroids. After Joe leaves, Gloria maintains her watch on the stars, and sees something that shouldn't be there an asteroid. This one is huge, and it's hurtling right toward earth, looking to do the planet what its little brother did to Joe's car, Gloria runs into the lodge to tell the other angels what she has found. They are shocked, but Tess says that they still have a job to do, and it won't help to tell their assignments what she saw. Of course the secret refuses to be kept. Ricky "borrows", a portable television from Mildred's sidecar and catches the report of the asteroid on the news. He hurries inside to tell his father, and soon everyone knows. While the reports go on, and experts speculate on the fate of the planet, Joe and Ricky realize that they are stranded in the middle of nowhere without a car, and no way to reach the rest of their family. In the midst of this worry, Mildred surprises them all by saying that she wishes for the asteroid to hit and quickly too. As the day wears on, and Mildred explains that all she wants is to die so that she can be with her husband again, in heaven, Ricky grows more frantic. All he wants to do is to go home to his mother and sister while he still can. Joe feels the same way, but admits that he's powerless to change it. Ricky decides that if Joe won't do anything, he will. He punches his father and rund off, stealing Andrew's tow truck, and taking to the road, despite a stern warning from Tess. Away from the lodge, Ricky runs over a rusty muffler, and tears the fuel line. With the truck out of commission he is more alon than ever. But he is not alone there are angels around him and one pulls up beside him on Mildred's motorcycle. It's Andrew. He takes Ricky back to the lodge, where Mildred insists that they all climb the mountain to watch the asteroid approach. Once they reach the top, Joe's cell phone miraculosly comes to life, and he and Ricky are able to talk to Sandra and Erica. Over the phone Joe reconciles with them, and in person he does so with Ricky. As the asteroid fills the sky, all is well with the Collette family. When it skips off the atmosphere, sparing the world a catatrophic impact, Mildred has a heart attack at Andrew's side. She has seen a miracle, and now she is going home to the Father and to her husband.moreless

    Monica and Tess are captivated by the thousands of stars that decorate the beautiful night sky. Monica elaborates on the majesty of God's heavens and it is revealed that the angels are actually sitting in planetarium hosted by Andrew. Across the city, 15 year-old Lucy Baker sits in her room looking at the sky, where only the moon can be seen above the city lights. Erica Baker joins her daughter and the two share a moment pondering what or who created the universe. "It's just luck," responds Lucy's father and science teacher, John. Lucy is not convinced that her atheist father is right. At school, tension runs high between father and daughter, who is barely maintaining a C average. John reminds Lucy that her grade hinges on her next research paper and she needs to come up with a topic. Despite her struggles in science, Lucy excels in Monica's English class. Monica encourages Lucy's growing curiosity of how the universe was created by allowing Lucy to combine her research for her English essay and her science project. Lucy is pleased that her science paper to prove the existence of God will antagonize her father. John dismisses Lucy's idea as mindless speculation and demands she pick another topic or fail the assignment. Their differences are momentarily set aside when Erica informs them that her ovarian cancer, which was in remission, has returned. John is confident that medical science will successfully get them through it again. As Erica's health gradually declines, she begins to question her own beliefs. Lucy goes to the planetarium to contribute her research despite her father's objections. There Andrew suggests that she look into Intelligent Design Theory, which claims that the universe is too complex and precise to be a random coincidence. Andrew asks Lucy "if you discover a watch...sitting on a tree stump. Would you assume that all these little springs and wheels and gears fell out of the sky and landed together just right to make this watch?" The next day, Lucy discovers from a classmate that the survival rate for a second bout with ovarian cancer is practically zero. Overwhelmed at the prospect of losing her mother, Lucy confides to Monica her feelings of helplessness. Monica consoles Lucy, explaining that her name means "bringer of light," and that her mother is still alive and needs her now more than ever. Lucy is determined to prove the existence of God to comfort her ailing mother. Lucy turns in her two papers, but is distraught that her mother doesn't find the inspiration she is looking for in Lucy's science paper. Monica suggests that Lucy has given her mother the wrong paper to read. Lucy, with Nurse Tess's help, takes her mother outside the city limits to see the stars. Erica reads Lucy's English essay, which states how grateful Lucy is for the beauty of the universe...grateful to God. John arrives at the hospital to find his wife missing and his frantic search leads him to the planetarium where Monica encourages him to take the first step and invite God into his heart. John does so, and is answered by Monica who reveals herself as an angel. Monica tells him John that God loves him, and he is miraculously transported to the clearing, where the family is reunited in God's love.moreless

Carol Anne is selected as the foreperson and tallies the votes, but Monica holds the up the process by requesting the others to discuss the decision.

Distraught over the news, Calvin ties one on and sleeps through the first twister in 2 years. The next day, Calvin shows up at the local watering hole (the Die Hard Diner) with a hangover, and by this point, it's clear that a major storm is headed their way. Tess points out that Calvin doesn't have to turn in his equipment until tomorrow and urges him to stop feeling sorry for himself and get busy. Calvin takes her advice and starts tracking the storm and along the way stops to pick up a hitchhiker, Monica. Calvin explains it's his last day, barring a miracle. And before long, that's just what he gets, in the form of a twister. As the Civil Defense Tornado Warning sirens sound, the Sheriff advises everyone the diner to take cover. Some take his advice, but most feel perfectly safe in the diner, which they believe to be storm proof, having weathered many a storm, unharmed. Joe, a construction foreman from Atlanta, is concerned for his wife, Laura, who's heading to the diner with their infant daughter. While Calvin tracks the storm and gives Monica a dose of his cynical world outlook, Tess chides the locals at the diner for blaming God for natural disasters and placing their emphasis on "luck" and superstition. Only Joe seems to have any appreciation for Tess' point of view. Calvin warns Sheriff Guthrie the twister is headed toward the diner when there's a sudden crash, Joe's wife car has landed outside the diner inches from the Sheriff's squad car, its grille impaled into the street. With nobody in the car, Joe holds onto his faith that his wife and child are safe. Joe heads out in search of his wife and child, along with two others Langford T. and Willard from the diner.

It's here that we get a glimpse of the source of Calvin's pain and how a tornado struck without warning, killing both his parents, when he was a teenager. JJ suddenly remembers something about Joe's wife from a previous visit, that she loved antiques and that she would've gotten off the main highway. Tess convinces JJ to put aside her fear and join her in the search. Meanwhile, Monica tries to get Calvin to join in the search for the child, but he's only thinking of himself. Monica reveals herself as an Angel of God and explains why Calvin has failed as a storm chaser. That he's allowed his rage to control his life and instead of following his heart's desire, he turned his vocation into something it was not intended to be. Once he's ready to listen, he hears the cry of a child, and looked up to see Joe's baby girt (still in the car seat) wedged between the branches of a tree. He radios in the good news, but status obscures the message. Langford T, Willard, Joe and Laura return to find the diner decimated by the tornado, its "luck" have finally run out.
