In this new season, Sam, the rebel teacher we all would have loved to have, has decided to live alone. That's the price of freedom, which she values more than anything. With her students, children and lovers alike, she still relies solely on her instinct and defies the rules. But when she learns she has cancer, our wonder woman has only two choices: keep forging forward, or come to terms with her fragility.


Episode 13: Allistair
Sam gets back to teaching and raising her kids as she carries on a secret affair with Raphael Manzareck. But when Xavier returns to teach an experimental class, she starts to lose her balance. The worrisome results from her mammogram only make things worse.

Episode 14: Mathis
Sam can't get herself to tell friends and family about her disease. Not even Raphael, who is ready for a committed relationship with her. Running into Xavier every day at school troubles Sam more than she'd like to admit. He, however, has truly moved on, and already has his sights set on the beautiful school superintendent Samia.

Episode 15: Charlotte
Now that she's had surgery, everyone knows about Sam's disease. She can't stand people looking at her with pity and would rather leave Raphael. Sam starts to get friendly with Xavier, who doesn't dare confess that he just recently hooked up with Samia.

Episode 16: Victor
When a student is accused of dealing hash at school, Sam investigates and befriends Bettina, a young woman with a strong, independent character like herself who is mourning the loss of her mother. Though she's low on libido and at odds with her kids, Sam is determined to get herself back on track.

Episode 17: Nadia
Sam becomes infatuated with the recently-divorced father of a student still traumatized by her parents' break-up. Tough luck - Sam is putting her happiness first! Come to mention it, she's fed up with her treatments and decides to stop radiotherapy.

Episode 18: Adam
Sam realizes she really screwed up. She decides to make herself into the perfect patient, teacher and mother. But when she finds out that one of her students may be a victim of abuse, she can't help herself. She has to get involved! And what will she do when she finds herself in Xavier's arms, on the verge of kissing him?

Episode 19: Capucine
After spending the night with Sam, Xavier is riddled with guilt: should he tell Samia the truth? Meanwhile, Sam is worried about the results from her latest lab tests. She takes a hard look at her life's accomplishments and comes to the conclusion that she's been totally worthless, both as a mother and a teacher.

Episode 20: Bettina
Though Sam has placed her trust in Bettina and given her special treatment, Bettina betrays her. Sam realizes she can't save everybody. She takes a big step forward in the way she relates to men, and to Xavier in particular.
