  • This episode does not follow the pattern the show has established. In changing its format, it presents a different side for each character. I feel this was one of the best episodes of the whole show.moreless

    At this point in the series you are sure you understand all the intrigue and relationships that are happening on the show. This episode makes you think and re-evaluate right and wrong. This is the first time that you realize maybe Jack is not evil. Maybe his point of view is not pervaded. This time it a body asked Jack for help. A beautiful young woman is dying of cancer. She does not want to die a slow disabling death. She wants to have one last good day. She wanted to committee suicide but have it viewed as an accident so that her sister will have the life insurance money. Her last day is awful and sad. Her death is viewed as a suicide. Her body turns to Jack and asked for help. Jack gives her the dream day she wanted when the day is replayed. When she dies, Jack is truly saddened by the loss. Tru spends the re-wind day trying to keep the woman alive. As Tru works hard at it, you start thinking who is right? Jack with his theory do not mess with faith. Tru is saving a life for what purpose? The woman would have a slow hard death. This episode is a turning point for the show. It gives a different perspective on the shows premise. It does not follow the pattern the show has established. In changing its format, it presents a different side for each character. I feel this was one of the best episodes of the whole show.moreless
  • Jack is asked for help

    9.5
    When a woman Jack turns down for a date jumps off a building she asks for his help. Tru's day rewinds too, and the only thing she has to go by is these flashes. That's how Jack didi it. The woman had leukemuia and she was gonna kill herself and make it look like an accident so her sister could get money. Over the day Jack gets attached to her. Tru bets money and gives $1oo,ooo to her so she could get treatment. Jack basicly lets go of her when she's falling. He really wanted to save her, you could tell, but Tru's dad convinced him that she was meant to die.moreless
  • Very different

    Wow what happened? This one was so different in an awesomely different way! I cannot believe that someone actually asked Jack for help! And poor Tru she can never catch a break rewinding when she is about to kiss Jensen now that sucks. He is way hot. Back on topic.



    I liked how it was different then the rest and Jack and Tru were great as usual. I really loved how Jack didn't want to let Megan die and in the end he killed her. It was cool to see Tru and Jack arguing over what was going on. Jack and Richard arguing about what was supposed to happen was different too. I guess I just liked this episode so much because it was different from all the rest. I loved Tru placing a bet too.moreless

    Now, I only actually managed to catch the second half of this episode, and I'll admit that I was disappointed that that was the case; what I saw of this episode looked really promising. I used to enjoy having a new plot twist each week, well, this week's looked really thought provoking in the form of Jack being asked for help - an interesting development that might cause him to think a bit about his own duties in the world. I guess that Jack if often portrayed as the badie, the evil ying to Tru's good yang. However, both characters are surely as reasonable as the other; both have been brough into this world with a clear responsibility, one that they've not stopped to question as they generally don't have the energy to spare! I think this episode was therefore intriguing as it made me consider who in this game is the guilty party, or if one even exists at all.moreless
  • Tru: I wish it was you.

    9.6
    This time the rules change & Jack gets asked for help by the victim instead of Tru, at the same time Tru finds out how Jack is always one step ahead of her, he sees the victims day rewindwhile tru sees her own day rewind.



    This time Jack seems to have become attached to the victim, Megan & may even already be in love with her & when she tells him what she's planning to do he knows why she asked for his help.



    When Tru finds a way to help Megan & manages to get her the money she needs Jack decides that because the rules have changed he doesn't have to kill her anymore, but Tru's father won't let him off easily & tells him that she has to die or else there may be consequences to pay later on.



    Poor Jack, you can tell right at the end that he didn't want her to die, and was upset at the fact that he wasn't strong enough to say screw the rules for once and save her from falling to her death (accidentally).
