Storyline

Julianne and Brent hit a possible obstacle in their relationship, namely Brent's dog Duchess and how well, or more precisely how badly the two females get along. Meanwhile, Erica is beginning to have a series of scattered visions which is giving her massive headaches. Dr. Tom informs her that the visions are a sign that she is now a full fledged therapist, the visions, which will become clearer as time goes on, identifying who her potential patient will be. Erica is unprepared for this news, and feels she will need Dr. Tom's guidance now more than ever in navigating through her early days. That is why Erica is even more unprepared for Dr. Tom's other news: that he has decided to retire, the implication of which is that he must sever all his therapy relationships forever, including with Dr. Naadiah and his patients. Erica is devastated by this news, and as such Dr. Tom contemplates delaying his retirement until Erica feels she is ready to live all facets of her life without him. To ... Written by Huggo

the pug stole the entire episode
22 August 2017 | by RavenGlamDVDCollectorSee all my reviews

Okay, first off, I have not been the target audience. I got involved because of the Season 1 box-cover's leggy pose. Laugh at me or hiss, I don't mind. The conclusion today underlined to me the general feeling, how, in the story-line, is it explained that Erica has these superhuman powers bestowed upon her to move instantly from one place to another, be it across town or to another city? She is not shown to be affected by these abilities?

Kinda think there's a little TV series spin-off possible here. Julianne's triangular relationship with Brent and Duchess, the little pug. I give that relationship two, three weeks to go belly up. As for Erica and Adam, I don't give that relationship much more. He'd be off to play soccer with the lads and go to the pub in double quick time. Had there been a Season Five, the Adam story- line would have been something just like that. For crying out loud, I could never stand that guy, pretty soon got heartily sick of him.

Erica's "special powers" brings to mind one of my favorite shows, ANGEL. Flashes of psychic awareness, sensing that a soon-to-be charge is in danger, rushing off to assist. "Angel Investigations, we help the helpless..." :)

The series standout is actually Dr. Tom. He is the only one I never criticized. As for Erin Karpluk, this really is an impossible part to play, true-blue Hollywood would have had difficulty filming it, but a little Canadian show attempted to show a 34, 35 year old becoming a teenager again WITHOUT EVER REALLY PULLING IT OFF and bringing to mind a very unflattering saying "dressing mutton as lamb" which is something that is best avoided. Yes, hiss at me, I myself feel like a cad writing that down, but I repeat what I have said before, a real-life older sister + younger sister combo, that is what was needed. But, okay, Erin gave it a good try, and one gets the basic idea that she might be a fun, charming, warm person in real life, possibly, make that, most likely, great to work with.
