  • Pivotal episode because it lays the ground work that this show is going to deal with complex issues. The show will not follow a simple familiar formatt. Each episode will build and make you think.

    In the pilot you think you have a simple little story line. Girl hears dead person ask for help, day re-winds, girl saves dead person with hard work. It is episode two, and you realize this show is very different. When a dead person says, "Help me," it may not mean save my life. It maybe faith for that person to die but they wanted to die under different circumstances. In this case a handsome firefighter named Nick and a ten year old girl are in the morgue dead. The firefighter asked for help and the day re-winds. As Tru re-plays the day and spends it with Nick, she starts to fall in love with him. In the end Tru watches the Nick save the little girl's brother. Nick realizes there is another child trapped in the building and goes in to save the 10 year old girl. On the re-wind he saves the girl but in the process he gives up his life. Tru sadly realize that when Nick asked for to helped it was to save the little girl not himself.
