This is my favorite Highway to heaven episode of them all
7 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are SPOILERS-------SPOILERS----------SPOILERS In this review.

Jonothon's earth wife Jane (Dorothy Mcguire) dies in his arms and he thinks that he is going back to heaven to be with her, only to have his expectations ripped from him by god, who tells him he is staying on earth because he has an assignment. Driven by anger at god's disappointing news, Jonathon rebels against god and loses his powers. He ends up in Jail trying to destroy a theater marquee titled---Heaven Can Wait--- and gets bailed out by Mark, He then gets drunk with Mark and decides to leave him and go on his own.

Walking along the beach, Jonathon spots a woman (Leann Hunley) who tries to kill herself and he ends up saving her life. He becomes close with this woman---Jennifer---and she helps him find his way back to god. When her mission is complete, she helps to reunite Jonathon and Mark where Mark----------(SPOILER-------- hands him a goodbye letter from Jennifer-------------------------(SPOILER)----------------who it turns out is really an angel. Who it turns out is really------Oh you will just have to watch it to see.

This episode is so worth watching. It really is one of the best episodes of any TV show I have ever seen. It also leaves the story open for a Highway To Heaven spin off.
