Nurse Cissy Davis and Archie Necaise, the deputy sherriff of the small Mississippi town called Jackson's Point, whom Dr. Beckett leaps into in the episode "Hurricane", are helping to evacuate Archie’s ex-girlfriend Lisa (played Tracy Kolis) as Hurricane Camille, which devasted the Gulf Coast region at that time, is set to hit the town. Al reveals that in the original course of events in August 1969, Cissy was killed by debris that night when she returns home. Sam and Cissy try to evacuate a ‘hurricane party’ but they refuse to leave and so the pair go to a local hurricane shelter.
The details of Cissy’s death changed a few times, as Cissy is last seen leaving the house with a violent ex-boyfriend, they suspect him. In a fit of jealousy over seeing Sam and Cissy kissing, the ex-boyfriend lets her dog out into the storm and Cissy is determined to go home and get him. In order to save her, Sam convinces Cissy that he can evacuate the hurricane party and get her dog and that the fewest number of people possible should be out in the storm. Sam quickly manages to save the dog but finds out he only has fifteen minutes to save the party and Cissy.
Not messing around, Sam breaks through the door to the apartment and shoots into the air to convince the people to leave and hurries back to the shelter. Lisa lies about her evacuation route being cut off and tries to kill Cissy to try and win Archie back because of her deep abandonment issues that make her think she can’t find anybody else who won’t leave her. Sam arrives and tackles Lisa just as she is about to deliver the fatal blow to a stunned Cissy. Lisa, in turns, tries to kill Cissy, Archie, and then herself, but Sam, as Sherriff Necaise, is able to stop her as Al is then able to report to Sam that in a few years Al reports to that she’d be fine. Sam holds off on leaping until the storm is over, everyone is gone, and he convinces Cissy to go back to school to be a psychologist.
