Leap for Lisa"
June 25, 1957
Episode adopted by: Becky
Sam leaps into Al as a young navy pilot
facing charges of raping and murdering a Commander's wife. In the original history, a
married nurse named Lisa Sherman told the Navy that she and Al were together...so Al never
went to trial. But Sam accidentally tells Lisa not to testify and she dies in a car wreck
later that night. As the odds rise that Al will be convicted and sent to the gas chamber,
Sam, Future Al, and even a guy named Edward must work to prove his innocence.
