The Inside Story: Will Lightning Strike Twice?

Professor Del Fina warns Bo and Rex that their one chance at leaving 1968 is fast approaching. Back in 2008, Madam Delphina gets a vibe from the past as she and Gigi head for the
Buchanan Ranch. Rex and Gigi tighten their resolve to locate one another. Meanwhile, back in 1968, Bo (as Asa) and Rex (as Bo) do what they can to get through Bo’s farewell party as he prepares to head off for Vietnam. At the same time they remain anxious to get through the time portal in time to return to 2008. However, their trip home is jeopardized when Clint learns that Asa sent Maria away, and punches Rex. Back in the 21st century, Gigi confesses to Delphina why she has been lying to Shane about his father. Gigi and Delphina are on the edge of their seats as they await Gigi’s opportunity to be transported to 1968 and be reunited with Rex. Brody informs Layla that he wants to make things right with Gigi when she returns to Llanview. Bo makes himself act more like Asa to keep Clint in the dark and allow him and Rex to return to the present. Brody makes a surprise discovery after intercepting a package to Gigi from Adrianna. Gigi’s love for Rex causes her to overcome her fear of being struck by lightning. Bo, Rex, and Gigi all pray for a miracle as the lightning strikes, and are forced to deal with the consequences.
