Her dreams however provide an explanation to what happened to the real Sandra O'Bannon. Written by garykmcd

One of My Favorite Episodes!
6 March 2009 | by Telyer5See all my reviews

This is one of the best, I think, because it showcases the love and support Alison has within her family... especially from Joe, her husband.

The story has all sorts of twists and turns and the whole time you are just so hoping that things can get worked out so that Alison can get back to her family and so that the lady inhabiting the "real" Alison's body can find some peace, somehow.

Corinne Bailey Rae's song, "Just Like A Star" really adds to the emotion of the episode. The song on it's own is pretty amazing but it was absolutely the perfect choice and we hear it over and over again, each time making us feel the love that Joe has for his wife and family.

This episode shows us once again that the Beatles were right, All You Need Is Love.
