Erica has much on her mind. She wants to be there for Judith, who is facing new motherhood issues. She has been given the responsibility of organizing the launch of Katie's book at a book fair. But in this task, she unknowingly has turned into her worst nightmare: a replica of Julianne. And she is still trying to avoid Ethan, who knows that she's avoiding him. There may be a connection between the control she's exerting in the book launch and the control she's trying to exert in a relationship between herself and Ethan. As Dr. Tom allows her to add to her list, she wants to go back to the night of her high school reunion when she and Ethan kissed, what she feels is the beginning of the end of their friendship.

Let it go ! How-to better control your life
19 March 2009 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Considering how much I like the show I'm surprised I haven't reviewed it sooner. However it's never too late and as I specially enjoyed this episode I think it's the perfect time to do it.

This one was all about Erica and Ethan. Does love worth risking a long time friendship ? When she opened the door Dr. Tom was meditating and doing yoga. He said something very important about controlling our thoughts instead letting them control us. It's the eternal dilemma between thinking and doing things the right way. For once she was sent two times back in time, at her demand. We learned that some events just can't be changed. It's not fate because what happens mostly depend on our decisions. To better shape our future one solution is to be more opened to others and see things in a new light to help shadow our doubts. It's so fragile to live in a bubble of dreams. Overcoming obstacles is really what makes life beautiful. Moreover for once the therapy session only changed her instead of altering the present. I think it was a smart move by the writer, Aaron Martin.

Last but not least her new attitude provoked a major change in her career and the last scene was unexpected so I really wonder how things will turn out. It's unusual but I've decided to give this episode a perfect score. It was just flawless and even had something Shakespearian about it.
