Episode summary[]

June 14, 1966: Sam now leaps some 11 years into the future into the body of Will Kinman, whom he had met as Sheriff Clayton Fuller, Abigail's father, in Pottersville, LA, back in 1955. Will was a teenager, age 17, when Sam occupied Sheriff Clayton Fuller's body in a police interview concerning the death of 12 year old Violet Adler. Her mother, Leta Aider, had accused his soon to-be bride Abigail, then 12, for what was her daughter's accidental death in 1955. In 1966, Will is now 27 years old, and now engaged to marry a now 21 year-old Abigail Fuller (played by Melora Hardin).

As Will is now a Deputy Sheriff and about to marry Abigail, Don "Purvis" Takins, the young boy Abigail babysat the previous evening has gone missing. She has no idea what may have happened to the lad but a mob mentality is beginning to take hold with Leta Aider (Mary Gordon Murray), who still blames Abigail for the death of her daughter and her husband, leading the charge. Al tells Sam that unless he can stop it, the mob will attempt to hang Abigail in the town square that night, where she will be shot in the back and die.


  • At the end when Sam says "oh boy" into the mirror after he meets Larry's wife was added in syndication, in the original NBC version since it was a two hour episode alongside "Trilogy Part III: The Last Door" right before he would've said it, instead it inserted an extra shot of Sam looking at himself in the mirror
