Tru Davies: So, you were right. Someone was supposed to die.
Davis: Well, he just had to die differently so someone else could live.
Tru Davies: I should have been able to save them both.
Davis: You can change events, but you - you can't change fate, Tru.
Tru Davies: I can do things that probably no one else can. Sometimes, even that doesn't feel like enough.
Davis: Sometimes, it isn't.

"There's a plan for everyone."
20 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

"The Longest Day" marks a change of pace for "Tru Calling" after 10 rather formulaic episodes. This day rewinds a total of 4 times, each time resulting in a different death, and Tru must Groundhog Day her way to the end of it, replaying the day until she gets it right.

The main question posed here is: Who lives and who dies? Who decides? This is the first episode where Tru really begins to question the moral consequences of her abilities. In one scene she asks Davis "How do I know what fate wants?" Does Tru have the right, just because she can, to change the life plan for the people she saves? Is it not their time to go? SPOILER These questions raised pave the way for Jack, her opposite, played by Jason Priesley in later episodes, who's job it is to make sure the day plays out the way it's supposed to and to stop Tru from saving these people. The great thing about Jack is that we don't know if he truly is a villain, and, had the series continued, these questions would have been dealt with in greater detail. I'm sure it would have been a richer series had it been allowed to get going. Having said that, series 2 is very, very juicy stuff.

As for this episode, as I've said, it's pivotal to the change in the series and the change in structure. Definitely recommended.
