Cristian fears that Sarah surely perished in the fall. Talia and Jonas become husband and wife.

A Closer Look: Back to the Past

Bo and Rex realize that they are trapped in 1968. With everyone still thinking that he is Asa, Bo has a run in with his mother Olympia, who bears a striking resemblance to Lindsay. A horrified Rex receives word that he has drafted to serve in Vietnam. Chuck Wilson Sr. (who looks like Nigel), informs Rex and Bo that they found some strange object near where they were struck by lightning. In reality the object is really Rex’s cell phone, which he attempts to use to contact Gigi back in 2008. Although he manages to successfully make a long distance phone call 40 years into the future, the connection is so terrible that Gigi is unable to make out any of what Rex says. Meanwhile, Bo and Rex decide to follow the advice Madame Delphina gave Rex and head for the Bon Jour Cafe. However, along their way to “follow the pie,” they soon discover that the Bon Jour Cafe of 1968 was a very different place then it is today. Rex believes that Emma, who looks identical to Gigi, could be the missing piece they need in returning to 2008. Bo receives the cold shoulder from a woman at the diner. Back in 2008, Clint receives a visit from his old flame Dallas, while back in 1968; Bo and Rex meet a younger Renee, who is the spitting image of Dallas. Thinking that Bo is Asa, Renee confronts him over his treatment of Emma. After chatting with a young Spencer, Rex realizes that, even at an early age, he was nothing but trouble. Bo lets Emma down gently, while Rex grows closer to her. And back in 2008, David ponders whether he and Spencer would have been better people had they had a more loving father.
