  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: Lucas swaps bodies with Henry Marshall, who is on the run for shooting three people at an office party, in order to give him another chance at life. Not intending to waste it, Henry turns over a new leaf, having learned a great deal about the power of good deeds and how life is interconnected from Lucas. The episode ends with Lucas, now in Henry's body, tending to his prison cellmate, indicating that the process will be repeated.
