After Slowly Getting Her Life on Track, Will Erica Lose It All When She Learns of the Mysteries Surrounding Dr. Tom's Troubled Past?

Catch an Encore Presentation of the Entire First Season in Order With "A Being Erica Do-Over" Marathon, Sunday, January 17 from 11AM-12AM ET/PT

Episode 201 ("Being Dr. Tom") � When we first met Erica Strange a year ago, she was single, working a dead-end job, and had little hope for the future. A "chance" meeting with the mysterious Dr. Tom altered her life when he began allowing her to travel back in time to make some changes and get a "do-over" with her past regrets. She relived a high school dance, went back to the moment when she lost her virginity, faced off against an intimidating college professor and even revisited her Bat Mitzvah. But when Erica defied Dr. Tom's trust by attempting to change the circumstances surrounding the death of her brother, Leo, she was left at a crossroads, not knowing if she'd ever see her therapist again.

In Season Two, Erica is worldlier, more accountable and more experienced in the ways of time travel and therapy. As she continues to move forward in her journey, she will come to understand that changing her life isn't a quick fix. It involves facing an ever-expanding series of challenges. In the premiere, Dr. Naadiah takes over Erica's therapy, sending her back to a bar in 1998, where she meets a younger, troubled Dr. Tom. A glimpse into his past makes Erica realize it's now her turn to lend a helping hand, on the season premiere of "Being Erica," WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20 (10:00 � 11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on SOAPnet.

"Being Dr. Tom" was written by Aaron Martin & Jana Sinyor and directed by Alex Chapple.
