Season three is about transformation.
This year, everything in Erica's life - her job, her love life, even her therapy with Dr. Tom – is starting anew, and getting turned upside down in the process.
Erica is once again thrown back in time by the enigmatic Dr. Tom in an effort to help her deal with her personal and relationship woes.
Now Erica is learning from other people's journeys, and finding that by helping others, she is in fact helping herself.
Erica finds herself having to escape her own personal "Groundhog Day" and familiar faces return to both Erica's and Dr. Tom's lives, causing complications aplenty.
