Woody Creek is gearing up for its centenary celebrations but for many of its townspeople, it's just another reminder of the old days, when life was more simple. Not for Georgie though. Not having managed to move on herself yet, as the clock ticks over to 1970, she's determined that the time has come. She's not the only one of Jenny's children who's grown up and is moving on. Having now inherited an estate in the United Kingdom, little Jimmy Morrison is now a man determined to make a new life for himself. For Cara, Woody Creek has been the source of the most devastating news of her life. She's vowed never to step foot into the place again. But the old timber town has a way of getting under people's skins.
