Storyline

Sam leaps into the body of Frank Bianca, a hairdresser in Los Angeles just as there's a shooting at the pharmacy next door. He lives with Laura and her son Kyle and he has just let the boy go next door to get some candy. The boy is unharmed but the pharmacist is killed and Kyle may be the only witness. Laura refuses to let Kyle cooperate with the police since her husband once witnessed a crime and was killed before he could give evidence. The detective on the case desperately wants to speak to Kyle but Sam can't convince Laura that they should do the right thing. Time is running out as Al tells him that both Kyle and his mom will be killed in the next 48 hours and he's there to stop it. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

When Sam tells a story to Kyle, when trying to get Kyle to describe the killer, Sam tells a story of Futureboy. Sam played the character of Futureboy in an earlier episode, Season 3, Episode 13. See more »

Goofs

When Al is telling Sam the new happy lives Laura and Kyle will have as a result of his changing history during the leap, he says that Kyle will "win the gold medal in the 100 metre butterfly at the 1994 Special Olympics." The Special Olympics is for athletes with intellectual disabilities, not physical disabilities like Kyle has. If this was meant to be a reference to the Paralympics, the most elite competition for athletes with physical disabilities, the year is wrong. The Paralympics are held the same year as the Olympics for the same season. See more »
