By opening up a part of her own personal life to him, Dr. Naadiah is trying to show Dr. Tom that he can be a good therapist and still maintain a healthy personal life. She is trying to get him to return the several telephone calls from his former fiancée, Amanda, to see why she has come back into his life. Telephoning Amanda and forgiving her for walking out on their engagement to marry another man may be two different things. Dr. Naadiah sends Tom back to his and Amanda's engagement party, where he believed that Amanda was looking for an excuse to leave him so that she could marry who would eventually be her husband, Paul. The party isn't quite as he remembers. A current day visit with his own father may show Tom what he needs to do to make himself more fulfilled in his personal life.

Because of Erica and Kai's history, a ... Written by Huggo

young Amanda dancing (er, rhythmically swaying?) to The Hustle

Episode that doesn't feature any of Erica's maidenhood family and friends. No Mom, Dad, brother, sister, friends or, basically, any of the Season 1 characters except Erica and Dr. Tom. Story revolves more around Dr. Tom, who is, anyway, the strongest, most polished performer of the series (and the only one I wouldn't have threatened to fire had I been chief boss there). Sigh, ho hum, Dr. Naadiah, she doesn't exactly inspire me to watch, and like I said in the previous episode's review, I cannot, cannot stand this Adam. Like, ugh, and a yech! thrown in for good measure. Saw on the disk that an upcoming episode features Ethan again. That's Erica's original boyfriend a la Season 1, right? Finally, maybe this soccer-bloke Irish Adam can be wiped off the screen even before the series finale (which is now just six episodes off)?

The Seventies was the big backdrop for this episode. It was the time of disco a la Saturday NIGHT FEVER, so I guess it was 1977. Sadly listened to that tune as the vinyl record played. With young Amanda dancing to it. That made the episode for me. The tune was so cool, so cool, so super cool... Like wow, man, I am a child of the Seventies. The girl looked so gentle dancing to it, clapping her hands, aw, man, I am not kidding now, if I don't stop this, I'm gonna cry...
