Episode Summary

Ashes to Ashes
Dana Hancock, a chain smoking wife and mother with terminal cancer, is killed when run over by a tobacco truck. She didn't see the truck coming because she was busy lighting a cigarette. She fails to see the big deal about her smoking until Judge Othniel shows her the full ramifications of her actions, at which point her sincerity impresses the Judge and he grants her a second chance to return and convince herself to not begin smoking in the first place. She is sent back as her own Guidance Counselor, Ann Rutherford. Her younger self, already smoking, is skeptical of Ann's warnings and doesn't see the big deal. She blames much of her difficulties on her absent parents, who are often away traveling for extended periods of time and do not even leave a contact phone number. As Ann, who is running out of time, digs deeper into the family situation, she discovers a shocking truth.moreless
