Sam leaps into the body of Jack Stone, a police detective who stops a man from committing suicide. The man's wife has been murdered so the assumption is that the husband is the killer. Sam has a problem however: he keeps having flashbacks to the detective's childhood and the fact that Jack saw his own mother murdered. Sam assumes that part of the detective's memory has stayed with him despite the leap. It all takes a very different turn when Al tells him that he can change the future, Jack will be killed in the next 48 hours. Written by garykmcd

Dr. Sam Beckett: [narrating] In all my years of leaping, I can't remember feeling so unprepared for what was ahead of me. And yet seeing those two kids and finding their mother, I felt this rage inside me like someone or something else was making me go forward, and all I could hope for was that whatever was driving me would let me know what to do with a cold-blooded killer.
