With Gwen’s plant destroyed and on the cusp of aging back, she and Sam race to find another plant, however will Gwen’s compulsion for a baby make her betray the man she loves.

With their plant dead, and after learning that the rejuvenation wears off, Ray is desperate to find another plant to keep Gwen young and cognizant. Suspecting that they grow where people drowned, Gwen uncovers a plant at Ranjeet’s flood-destroyed house. However, Gwen is now consumed by her compulsion for a baby and takes the berries to Max instead. She rejuvenates Max who is overjoyed, leaving Ray devastated. Sam’s desperation for another berry makes him reject Isaac who puts himself in serious danger while searching for his mother. Griffo’s investigation hits a wall when his sergeant, Rhonda, won’t believe his theory about Sam, as homicide detectives arrive to search for “Tommy Brydon”, Sam’s older, criminal self. Sam inadvertently helps Tina face her grief and anger over her sister’s death, while elderly care-home resident, Farida, returns to her rotting house to discover a miracle waiting inside.
