But for the Grace of God

Allison is nearly frantic when she dreams that her 14-year old daughter Ariel is involved in a car accident. What she doesn't realize is that Ariel is also having prophetic dreams where she and her mother are the same age and in high school. Complicating matters is that Ariel has been asked to go to a concert by a 16-year-old boy and her parents won't hear of it. Things aren't going well on the job front either. Allison has been hired by private detective Cynthia Keener to help locate a missing teenager but she hasn't been of much use so far. Allison eventually realizes Ariel's and her own dreams are linked to the fate of the missing girl. Written by garykmcd

Now they're back on track (mostly)
17 October 2019 | by Jackbv123See all my reviews

After breaking with what they do best for the end of last season and the first episode of this one, the show went back to what they do best - quirky. I also like when Ariel is a big part of the story.

There is a new paradigm. In some ways, it makes more sense that Allison doesn't have to legally justify herself as a source since Cynthia is taking the credit. But on the other hand, since her dreams jump around randomly to victims and this lends itself more to a more centralized authority.

On a personal preference which has no bearing on my rating, I prefer Jesse Schram as young Allison to JLaw. In my mind, Schram fits Allison's personality a little better. It's possible that Allison became different as she grew older, but the time frame each was playing was more or less the same.
