It's an unsettling first for all in the know when the day reverts after Megan Roberts's corpse, fallen to her death, asks Jack for help, while Tru kisses her med school boyfriend Jensen Ritchie. Davis, who didn't come to action at a dinner at Dr. Carrie Allen's home to her and Jack's disappointment, guesses the Edison Tower, Tru's last memory, is Megan's suicide spot. Tru warns Harry the crime scene dad will ask him to take pictures of includes his poker friend Billy, who invites Harrison to the job but is asked out instead, alas in vain. Jack tells Tru 'help' doesn't mean 'save' with a suicide she has no mandate to prevent. Megan is terminal, but wants a last good day and 'help' to die so her sister Wendy can cash in a $100,000 life insurance polis. Tru still decides to save her life, offering another way to get the cash, using her foresight to bet; the results repeatedly surprise Jack, but Richard insists fate must have its course...

Perhaps the best "Tru Calling" episode - in the Top 5 at the very least
19 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

In one of the most jaw-dropping twists on the show's usual formula, a dead body asks JACK for his help; the day rewinds for both Jack and Tru, and while this is happening Tru "sees" bits and pieces of the victim's past, realizing that that's how Jack knows so much about the people who ask her for help even when he's nowhere near them at the time. The victim was a beautiful young girl (beautifully played by Maggie Lawson) who committed suicide by jumping from a clock tower, and both Tru and Jack race to find out what drove her to that decision. Things get complicated when Jack starts developing feelings of compassion for the girl - or does he? One of the best things about "The Last Good Day" is that it is unpredictable right to the last minute - what will prove stronger, Jack's devotion to his "job" (further enforced by Tru's strict father), or his remaining traces of humanity? The last line, which I won't spoil here, is perfectly designed and delivered to make Jack a very complicated character. And although I usually prefer the episodes with a stronger emphasis on mystery, "The Last Good Day" is a gripping character drama. ***1/2 out of 4.
