Episode Summary

Can You Embrace A New Life?
Julie is nearing the end of her pregnancy and finds herself sleepwalking for the first time in her life - right to the intersection where the ambulance crash occurred. Julie doesn't know that it's where Tina, James and Matthew went back in time and she is doubly disturbed by a text message she receives from 'Aaron', the name she has chosen for the baby. Can he communicate with her? Then she receives another message: 'You're a bad mother.' Freaked, she visits Annette who is supportive and understanding. They have a mother-daughter reconciliation. However, she also receives a visit from Tim, who upsets her and leaves her Simon's ashes. Julie finds herself in the middle of the intersection again, and it is James who rescues her. He tries to explain that she carries the reincarnation of Yu Ku'an Wu, and this is why she is experiencing strange happenings, but Julie refuses to believe him. Then, at the hospital, she meets William, and she has a vivid memory of selling him and Lindy two vases. When she shares the daydream with William he tells her it's true, and the vases were made by Yu Ku'an Wu. How could she possibly know this? Julie, distraught, returns to James, who comforts her. On a hilltop, Julie for the first time says a proper goodbye to her husband Simon and spreads his ashes. James gives her Yu Ku'an Wu's prayer mat for Aaron.. Lindy is farewelled at the office in preparation for her move to Toronto, but she's still torn about leaving William. They try to let each other go lovingly, but Lindy finds it too hard. She tells William to tear up her ticket - she's staying with him. But William refuses, believing that this isn't what she really wants. Lindy forces him to break her vase, and William does, telling her at the same time that he has cancer. Lindy is devastated, but William explains he wants to fight the disease knowing that she is in Toronto following her dream. Heartbroken, she leaves. Sam sleeps with Annette, Tina's mother, but when she realises he's only doing it to hurt Tina, she chucks him out. Sam confronts Tina, about to tell her what he's done, but she challenges him - 'did you sleep with someone to hurt me?' Realising how pathetic his actions are, Sam changes his mind. He says it's time to let Tina go and get on with her life. He kisses her and leaves.moreless
