Relationship Rescue Retreat
Six couples on the verge of divorce continue their work with Dr. Phil to save their marriages. The participants acknowledge their wrongdoing, and ask for their partners' forgiveness.
"Forgiveness is a choice," Dr. Phil tells them. "Don't stand there and wait for some miracle to wash away the anger and bitterness and the hurt."
Dr. Phil guides the couples through an exercise to get past the feelings that hold them prisoner.
Donna can't get over Vinnie's affair. Dr. Phil explains why she won't let it go, and Vinnie asks for forgiveness.
Since the retreat, things have not been going well for Vinnie and Donna.
Paul confronts his pain and anger at Nora for her affair, and with the help of all the couples, chooses to forgive.
Things are better for Paul and Nora, but Dr. Phil tells them that their work has just begun.
Dr. Phil returns to the stage after the show with some additional words for Donna.
