Does Sam Beckett ever go home in an episode of 'Quantum Leap'?

In the Season 4 premiere- Sam actually ends up back in his own time after lightning strikes making him the hologram and Al the leaper. He is his actual self in 1999 and learns he has a wife. His staff starts trying to find a way to help him rescue Al which later causes him to have to start leaping around all over again without even remembering he ever came back. Sam unfortunately does not return to his present year at the end of the final episode which is really sad.
