On Christmas Eve, Richard refuses son Harry a pay-rise which 'would look like favoritism'. The only corpse in Davis' morgue is a Santa died of natural causes, actually the one who fails to turns up at his traitorous lover Carrie's kids center's party, so he promises to fill in, albeit with weird presents. Tru's day reverts unexpectedly by a call for help from a six months old donated corps in her Hudson University med school while she's with Jensen Ritchie. Meanwhile Harrison stands Tru up for their Christmas party after checking up on dad, whom he suspects of infidelity to his second wife Jordan, but surprises in his supposed love-nest meeting with Jack- dad nearly strangles the embarrassing witness. As the college website won't identify the corps, Tru turns to Jack, who remembers her last sight: a car crash scene, where flowers were laid, paid for by Anne Moore; indeed she lost six months ago her sister Allison and takes care of her teenage daughter Cambria. The unnatural allies ... Written by KGF Vissers

And so it ends.

After 27 episodes "Tru Calling" just fizzles out. Its a pity because the series was showing real potential. There were a number of problems. Mostly that the creators just didn't know what it was all about. It could have been a mystery because Tru's mother was murdered. Then it became science fiction with Tru being a time traveler. In the end it was a battle between good and evil with "unlucky in love" Tru being the good guy.

Basically the writers tried too hard.

In the final episode a Godiva asks for Tru's help. Unfortunately the corpse has been dead for six months. When Jack turns up the two enemies become allies as they race to solve a six month old murder before someone makes a terrible mistake.

The rewind also saves the day for Harrison who follows his dad to a flat where he is meeting with none other than ... Jack Harper. Because Jack has a memory of the day he is able to warn his colleague and continue the deception.

In the end a truce is called as Christmas eve is celebrated by all.
