Sam leaps into Clayton Fuller, a Sheriff in 1955 Louisiana. Fuller is a widower with a 10 year-old daughter, Abigail, who finds a dead man, Deputy Sheriff Bart Aider, in a swamp. This isn't the first time Abigail has been involved with the Aider family as she was the last person to see their daughter Violet before she disappeared and presumably died two years before. The missing girl's mother, Leta Aider, is unstable and blames Abigail for both deaths. Al tells Sam that unless he can change the future, both Abigail and her father will die when Leta sets their house on fire. Written by

I never like it when a leap starts out at the bottom and goes downhill from there.
