Episode Summary

Final Flight
Capt. Luke Sellars and his second wife Connie are on their annual flight to Paris so that Luke's son Rick can visit his mother, a French lady who moved there after she and Luke were divorced. When he refuses to sit down as the flight is taking off, Luke falls and dies. Judge Othniel gives him a chance to correct his deepest regret: not turning around a trans-Atlantic flight in order to save the beloved dog of a young man who has had his leg amputated. The dog had been accidentally placed in the wrong cargo hold and froze to death. Luke, now a flight attendant, must convince his younger self to set aside his pride and turn the plane around. In a touching side story, Mr. Smith helps an elderly woman named Anne who is suffering from cancer and is contemplating taking her own life.moreless
