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...

Plot Summary | Plot Synopsis


Did You Know?


When Tru is telling Jack that Megan has leukemia, the people seen behind her when she asks "Did you hear me?", are in the same positions as they are after the camera switches to Jack saying "Yeah I heard ya" then switches back to Tru. They actually appear to even start from their original positions from the first shot when it switches back. In addition, those same people are seen walking behind Jack in the shot in between.
