It's Yom Kippur, and there is much pressure within the Strange family for everyone to reconcile, especially Erica and Sam, but also Gary and Barb, the latter who has has always resented her husband's decision to be a rabbi, and Erica and Barb. Dr. Tom sends Erica back to Yom Kippur 1997 - the year following Leo's death - when Gary and Barb were having a fight over his spending so much time at the synagogue, with Erica siding with her father. In addition to Barb wanting a divorce following that incident, Erica and Barb's relationship has since been an antagonistic one. Erica vows this time to stay neutral in her parents' argument. Although she starts off being neutral, Erica learns more behind her parents' marital woes, which may change her attitude towards both. Dr. Tom tries to provide further insight by sending Erica even further back to 1974, to a hippie commune retreat that Gary and Barb went to shortly after they got married. Written by

Dr. Tom, I have tried for weeks to make things right with Sam.

It is a nice episode with an interesting idea on how without knowing many of the things that happened Erica completely blames her mother for the marital problems of her parents
What I found a bit annoying though is how she completely turned this blame on her dad now. He may have been the cheater, but her mom is not a better person because she was a loser who pretended to like things she didn't and then tried to change her husband into a "better man". People who get into a relationship with someone hoping that he will change so that he fits them are idiots who make a mistake in a relationship.
Of course everyone makes mistakes. This is the great message of the episode told us both by Dr. Tom and Erica's young dad.
And we had some nice scenes showing people in this family going towards each other in small steps trying to forgive each other
