Storyline

It's Erica's thirty-fifth birthday. She and Adam are back together, although they still disagree on certain issues, such as personal boundaries. Regardless, she's generally in a happy place in her life. She even gets a present from an unexpected source. The one negative issue in her life on this day starts when she catches Julianne and Brent locked in a romantic kiss at the office, which is her introduction to the fact of them being a couple. Instead of feeling happy for them, especially Julianne who she knows has been unhappy romantically of late, Erica feels that their romance is inappropriate for the office, especially as she feels as if the two will always side with each other against her in workplace decisions. To give her some perspective on the issue, Dr. Tom sends her back to Purim 1992, to revisit a regret and to have her deceased paternal grandfather - "Zayde" - as her next patient. Zayde visited from Montréal every year for Purim, his favorite holiday. But Zayde was stuck ... Written by Huggo

Olivia Scriven, teenage Sam
16 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Saving the sad concept of a strict Jewish patriarch episode for me, was the rebellious and spirited performance by Olivia Scriven as the teen-aged version of Samantha. Her unflinching words delivered in a taunting manner really provided the dismal affair with some welcome relief. And I agree with the kid, as the old guy is living in his own world.

Not forgetting the Rubik's cube and p**** joke, good one, unexpected, especially from Erica.

But...

This is the penultimate episode, and really, good thing they did not go for a Season Five. It is about to be concluded and get done with and that is as it should be, the flavor of this is long past getting stale. Observe Erin Karpluk acting the teenager. Really, people, a 25 year old shouldn't even try, but a 35 year old? Which is why I say, call it quits and move on, it should all have been done in an initial 22 episode season back when it started out, not this drawn-out affair with time matching on inexorably. The story is about time- travel and second chances and do-overs BUT for crying out loud, the actors are mere time-bound mortals!
