  • Tru's cheating ex-boyfriend Mark makes an unwelcome return and first at her party and then as a dead body on her bed when she wakes up, just in time for him to ask her for help.

    In Morning After Tru gets an unexpected call from her ex-boyfriend Mark saying that he regrets what happened and wants her back.

    Despite Tru being in a new relationship with Luc, Mark sets about winning her back by phoning her, bumping into her in a store and then gatecrashing her party.

    Tru makes it clear that things are over between them and that she is with someone else and leaves him on her roof to return to her apartment as the party is finishing.

    Waking in the early hours of the morning Tru is horrified to find Mark beside her in bed, dead, her knife on the floor and blood around the apartment. With no idea what happened Tru finds herself reliving the day when Mark asks for her help.

    Turning to Davis for help Tru is not even sure that she didn't kill her ex and struggles more than ever to figure out what happened the previous evening.

    Unsure how Luc will react Tru decides to lie to him about what is happening and in this respect shows that not everything is better the second time around.

    This episode is the first in which Tru is saving the life of not a stranger, but someone she knows, and it shows with great clarity how she handles the extra pressure of her calling.

    There are also some great humourous moments in this episode, including Harrison and his efforts to find out where he stands with Lindsay and my personal favourite - the scene with Davis finding out that Tru threw a party and didn't invite him.

    A great blend of humour and drama.
