1 March 1957
Harry told Marilyn to start a fight with Cora at an appointed time, but later Marilyn didn't want to keep the meeting. Cora continued drinking heavily. Louise thought it was strange when Harry wanted to take a cab to their meeting and then said he needed to go back home to retrieve his speech. Marilyn confronted Cora, who passed out. Harry returned home with murder in mind.
4 March 1957
Before he killed her with Cora's whiskey bottle, Harry explained to Marilyn how he planned to get rid of her and frame his wife so that he could be with Louise. Sara found Marilyn's bludgeoned body in Cora's bedroom closet. Mike called the police. Sara begged Cora to recall the events leading to Marilyn's murder, but in her alcoholic blackout, she couldn't remember anything.
5 March 1957
The police zeroed in on Cora as the only suspect in the murder. Charlie was sent to find Jack who might be able to verify Cora's story. Cora neglected to mention to Mike that she had previously threatened Marilyn in front of witnesses. Jack and Betty Jean went against the wishes of her parents and made a date to meet one another secretly.
6 March 1957
Betty Jean's father Wyn Battle learned from Charlie that Jack and Betty Jean are still involved. Jack made a serious suggestion to Betty Jean. Mike feared that Marilyn's death will be ruled first degree murder. Mike questioned Jack, but his answers did not make things look any better for Cora.
7 March 1957
The arrival of Louise's ex-husband Phil Capice surprised her. Phil told Louise that he can't get her out of his head. Louise worried that someone will find out that she and Harry were at the Lane house the night Marilyn was murdered, but Harry warned her to keep her trap shut. Mike spoke with district attorney Ed Parmalee who has already decided Cora's guilt.
8 March 1957
Harry avoided Duke's calls. Fearing an imminent charge of murder, Mike fed Assistant DA Parmalee a tip and advised Cora to play sick in order to delay Cora's arrest. Duke told Mike that no one wanted Marilyn dead. Certain of Harry's guilt, Duke confronted Harry and made serious blackmail threats.
11 March 1957
Duke demanded money in exchange for his silence about Harry's crimes. Mike had Duke tailed. Charlie became passionate with Grace. Duke changed his story about Marilyn, and Mike suspected a payoff from Harry. Grace had an admission for Sara about which man she prefers, Charlie or Paul. Mike theorized Marilyn's killer re-set the time on her watch to trick police detectives.
12 March 1957
Winston verified part of Harry's alibi but also remembered something else important about Harry's activities the night of the murder. Cora couldn't be sure of her own innocence and considered skipping town until everything blows over. Mike questioned Grace for details about the relationship between Harry and Marilyn. Grace couldn't quite recall everything about an odd incident between the two.
13 March 1957
Winston remembered being tipped off by an anonymous dame about being cheated by Harry, but wasn't sure if Marilyn had been the caller. Paul pressured Grace to answer his marriage proposal. Grace finally recalled an incident that made her sure that Harry and Marilyn were involved. Mike suspected that Marilyn was blackmailing Harry. Parmalee gave Mike a short deadline to gather evidence before he charges Cora.
14 March 1957
Jack's statement to the cops angered Harry. Sgt. Killbourn interviewed a new witness, a cab driver parked outside the auditorium where Harry gave his speech the night of the murder. Harry confessed to Mike that he and Marilyn had more than a professional relationship. Later, Mike doubted the veracity of the cab driver, who insisted that no one left the auditorium during the period when Marilyn was being killed.
15 March 1957
The taxi driver altered his story but not enough for Mike's satisfaction. Phil confided to Winston that he and Louise can't reconcile while she's in love with someone else. Phil and Winston made a pact to uncover Louise's secrets. Louise was afraid that Harry made her an accessory to murder. Mike vowed to lean on Harry until he snaps.
18 March 1957
A newspaper story suggesting that Mike was covering up Cora's guilt annoyed Sara. Cora promised to stop drinking. Asst. DA Parmalee pressured Mike to close the murder case. Mike's hopes were dashed with an airtight alibi. Betty Jean's mother admitted she's afraid that her daughter and Jack will marry too soon. Sara visited neighbor Billy Harper, a young boy who's hospitalized. Mike tricked Harry by implying there are witnesses who saw him leave the auditorium before the murder.
19 March 1957
Phil made a discovery about Louise's secret lover. Louise begged Harry to take her away on a world cruise before the cops start closing in on them for Marilyn's murder. Mike and the police increased the pressure on Harry with more innuendos and scenarios about his guilt. Later, Harry began to crack and phoned for Louise to secretly meet him at his private lodge.
20 March 1957
Al Ford, who wrote the article filled with innuendo about Mike, attempted to goad Sara into making an incriminating statement against Cora. Sara asked Ford to leave her home. Mike made a case to Asst. DA Parmalee that Harry could be guilty of killing Marilyn. The police tailed Harry to the lodge. Louise flatly refused Harry's demands that she lie about their whereabouts the night of the murder. Harry threatened to reveal that Louise was the perpetrator of a hit and run in Nevada.
21 March 1957
Under duress and afraid of Harry's threats, Louise gave a deposition to the cops. Mike coerced Louise into admitting that she was the informant who tipped off Harry with insider information that helped him cheat Winston out of the Brody and Clark real estate deal. After reading Louise's deposition, Winston was devastated to learn that he was betrayed by his own daughter.
22 March 1957
Winston begged Louise to tell him the truth about the Brody and Clark deal. Breaking down, Louise was on the verge of admitting to her father what happened in Nevada. With the DA presenting Cora's case to the grand jury in three days, Mike was ordered to stop pursuing a case against Harry. Mike promised Sara that he wouldn't stop looking for the truth and vowed to nail the real killer.
25 March 1957
Harry hired lawyer Bernard Ehlers to defend Cora. Mike questioned Phil about whether or not Louise and Harry are intimate, but Phil responded that Louise hates Harry. Mike was suspicious why a woman would betray her own father for a man she despises. Grace admitted to Mike that Louise leaked the Brody and Clark deal to Harry in October. Mike realized that Louise betrayed Winston only two months after starting to see Harry.
26 March 1957
Harry groused at Paramlee that Mike is continuing to question him when Cora is the one going before the grand jury. Parmalee told that Mike that he should quit the police force if he wants to keep playing detective. Winston took great offense when Mike's comments suggested that Louise might be Harry's accomplice in murder. Little Billy Harper returned the hero's medal that Mike gave him in the hospital. Mike made Billy see that his bravery in the face of a serious operation deserved the medal.
27 March 1957
Parmalee conceded a grudging respect for Mike's dogged determination. Sara confessed to Mike that she once heard Cora threaten to bludgeon Marilyn with a vase, but Marilyn wasn't afraid. Mike argued to DA Bruce Thompson that Marilyn wasn't afraid of Cora, but Marilyn feared the person who killed her, because she was hiding in Cora's closet when the killer struck. Mike suggested a pre-trial hearing rather than a trial. Parmalee cautioned Mike that if Cora is actually brought to trial, it could crush Mike's future as an attorney.
28 March 1957
Ehlers turned to Grace for information about Cora's drinking and her close association with the Martin Spode family. Sara tipped off Ehlers that someone sent the Spodes an anonymous letter that exposed Cora's alcoholism, and that in turn made Hester take young Bebe away from Cora. Ehlers contacted Hester, now living in Florida, but she couldn't identify the person who tried to sabotage Cora. Cora was told that she'll probably go to trial for murder, and fearing jail, planned to skip town.
29 March 1957
Helen tailed Cora, who went to the train station and planned to leave for Springfield. Helen arrested Cora to stop her from fleeing, but the DA's office had her tailed, too! And made the charge stick. At the bail hearing, Mike pleaded Cora's case, then the judge found her a flight risk and ordered her jailed until trial. Mike told Cora to face her fears and find strength in her solitude, but Cora collapsed sobbing in her cell and begged God to her help her.
1 April 1957
Mattie had doubts about Cora's innocence. Betty Jean's mother argued that she and Jack should be able to date, but Betty Jean's father Wyn reiterated that Jack's aunt is a drunk and murder suspect. Wyn forbade Betty Jean to ever see Jack again. Jack made Betty Jean choose between him and her parents. Cora was forbidden from accepting Sara's gift of a vanity mirror because the jail matron feared Cora might break it and use the sharp edges to slit her wrists.
2 April 1957
Mike told Captain Marceau that the lab found an uncommon sedative in Cora's blood the night of the murder, and theorized that Harry had drugged Cora, murdered Marilyn, and framed his wife. At the jail, Cora admitted to Mike that her maid Marie had given her vitamin capsules shortly before Marilyn's murder. Mike questioned Marie who told him that Cora once mistook a sedative for her vitamins and was comatose for over an hour. Mike called Harry in for routine questioning, then showed Harry how easy it would be to grind up tablet and place it in an empty capsule. Harry started to unravel.
3 April 1957
Seeing Harry's panic, Marceau gave Mike a free hand to continue the investigation. Later, Mike learned that Louise has a history of speeding and reckless driving. Sara counseled Betty-Jean on how to win back Jack. Betty-Jean took Sara's advice and made time with a boy named Allen to make Jack jealous. After a furious Jack saw Betty-Jean and Allen together at the soda shop, the two reconciled. Sara mentioned to Mike that the feud between Harry and Winston dates back to Harry's love for Winston's late wife, also named Louise.
4 April 1957
Mike instructed Charlie to find out why Louise's personal habits changed suddenly a year ago. Sara visited Cora in jail and was unnerved to hear that Cora has accepted her fate and wants to give up. Cora admitted that she's considering a confession just to put an end to the trial and all the publicity. Phil informed Mike that Louise suddenly changed last year after a trip to Reno to get their divorce. Mike hustled to stop Cora's confession, warning that if Cora confesses, her only alternative to jail is permanent confinement to an asylum. Phil lied to Harry that he's going to re-marry Louise. Mike was delighted by Harry's jealous reaction to the news, since it gives Harry a motive for framing Cora.
5 April 1957
Mike theorized that Harry solved two problems at once by killing a blackmailer, Marilyn, and framing his drunken wife Cora for the crime. Winston followed Mike's advice to undermine Harry's confidence by turning up the pressure on his business. Harry handed over blackmail money to Duke, but argued he can't afford any more because of heat from the cops and sudden cash flow problems. Duke suggested that Harry play it cool because the cops are using the old squeeze-play maneuver to make him crack.
8 April 1957
Mike hinted to Louise that he knows about her past in Nevada, but just as she was about to confess, Harry arrived. Harry warned Louise about Mike's tricks and tried to persuade her to betray her father again. Lane Trucking continued to suffer as Winston pulled strings to get another company to cancel its contracts with Harry. Harry descended into madness, espousing his power and screaming that no one can destroy him.
9 April 1957
Mary Harper admitted to her husband Roger that she's overdrawn at the bank again and needs money to balance the account. After giving Mary more money, Roger suggested that they meet Mike and Sara Karr, who befriended their son Billy while he was in the hospital. Later, Mary visited Sara and made ominous statements about not wanting to live if she should ever lose her son. When Sara casually mentioned the date, April 9th, Mary panicked and fled the Karr home. Mike met with Roger and learned that Marilyn wasn't insured at the time of her death. Mary kept an appointment with the mysterious Clayton Pike, who is blackmailing her. Pike revealed that he must raise his fee for "standing as a protective factor" between Mary and "unpleasant circumstances". When Mary insisted that she can't pay any more money, Pike suggested telling Roger the truth. Later, Mary lied to Roger that the money he gave her to cover the bank overdraft had been stolen from her purse. Sara told Mike about the strange incident with Mary and said that she saw "terror" in Mary's eyes.
10 April 1957
Sara shivered when Mike informed her that Cora's judge is the same one who sent Martin Spode to prison and seldom shows mercy. The judge's wife is a former acquaintance of Cora and asked her husband to be nice. Judge Neuman guessed that Mike will be an ace attorney some day, but Mike joked that he should save his compliments until the bar exam scores are in. Cora's pre-trial hearing got underway,
11 April 1957
As the hearing got underway, Mike testified about Marilyn fearing her killer but not being afraid of a drunken Cora. Under oath, Mike swore that he believed Cora innocent of the crime. Judge Neuman ordered a recess when an upset Cora became hysterical. Sergeant Fisk testified that Cora's fingerprints were found on the neck of the whiskey bottle, indicating that she grasped it to use as a weapon rather than to pick it up to pour a drink. Fisk's testimony caused Cora to lose her cool again.
12 April 1957
Mike warned Sara that they had to find a way to stop Cora's outbursts in court, which made her look even more prone to sudden violence. Sara attempted to reason with Cora, but it was to no avail. Phil recalled seeing Louise and Duke together in a Reno hotel when she went to Nevada to finalize their divorce. Mike theorized that Duke spilled the beans about Louise's troubles to Harry, who used the information to blackmail her. Later, Mike paid a surprise visit to Duke, but he pretended not to know Louise.
14 May 1957
Mike received a lucrative job offer from a prestigious private law practice . Later he told Sara that he rejected DA Bruce Thompson's offer to work in the DA's office, but Sara urged him to reconsider Thompson's offer. Mike and Sara's disagreement over the jobs turned into a terrible argument. Young Billy Harper advised Mike to apologize whether he was actually remorseful or not. Mike brought Sara candy, flowers and an apology, with a joke about a mink coat coming later. Mary became upset after Clayton Pike called her at home and talked with Roger.
15 May 1957
Roger admitted to Mary that the doctor has him on a new exercise regime which will place some strain on his heart, so Roger needs complete emotional tranquility. Alarmed about Roger's health, Mary confronted Pike and begged for more time to pay the protection money. A reluctant Pike agreed to Mary's demands when his wife Liz arrived unexpectedly. Liz correctly sensed that Clayton is involved in another shady deal. Sara wanted to help Mary, but Mary insisted that no one can help her now. Later, Mary wondered how she'd ever be able to tell Roger that Billy isn't really his son.
16 May 1957
Mike resigned from the Monticello police department and accepted Asst. DA Parmalee's job offer. Mike's first case will be the prosecution of a black-market baby ring. Mary saw a story in the newspaper about Winston's desire to end the illegal sale of babies in Monticello. Roger blamed the victims for paying for children. Mary fantasized about telling Roger that she bought Billy on the black market after their own child died while Roger was undergoing dangerous heart surgery. Roger died of a heart attack in Mary's fantasy.
17 May 1957
Jack wanted an answer from Betty Jean to his marriage proposal. Charlie received the bad news that Grace moved to San Francisco. Sara confirmed for Charlie that Grace sent her a letter from California, but there wasn't a return address because Grace doesn't want Charlie or Paul to contact her.

20 May 1957

Rose Marie had met McMahon at a charity clinic, and he offered to pay her expenses if she'd give him the baby after it was born. Rose Marie had written a letter to her husband's parents asking for help, but McMahon promised to mail the letter and apparently didn't. When her in-laws didn't respond, Rose Marie agreed to McMahon's plan. Jack told Winston that he wants to assume Harry's position at Lane Trucking, but Winston informed Jack that the company is being liquidated to pay Harry's debts.

24 May 1957
Mike asked Willie for help on the black market baby ring, but Willie was apprehensive because of his last investigation. Mike informed Willie that Thomas McMahon is actually Leo Sekuler, a man Willie once investigated. Rose Marie spotted Sekuler at the charity clinic and called Mike, who told her to leave immediately. Sekuler caught Rose Marie and intimidated her into remaining silent about their association. Willie confronted Sekuler, who denied knowing Thomas McMahon. Rose Marie lied to Mike that she didn't recognize Sekuler's mug shot as being the man she knew as Thomas McMahon. Later, Rose Marie wouldn't finger Sekuler in a police lineup. Willie scolded Rose Marie for protecting Sekuler. Sara noticed a bruise on Rose Marie's face. Mike realized that Sekuler "gave her a small example of what would happen to her if she identified him". Mike told Willy that they must "wrap up Sekuler".

Rosemarie told Sekuler that she wants back the baby she gave away. Sekuler indicated that a payoff might be necessary to secure the child who was adopted over a year ago.

31 May 1957

Sara and Mike visited the Harpers, and Mary became unnerved when Roger started showing off Billy's baby photos. Winston demanded to an angry Mike that he leave Rosemarie and Sekuler alone. Mike's conversation about adopted babies struck a nerve with Mary. After she and Mike got into a quarrel, Mary ran out.

11 June 1957
Mike raised Rosemarie's spirits with the news that her clue might help them uncover her daughter's whereabouts.

Willy couldn't help Mike begin his investigation into Dorothy Haller's disappearance. An anxious Peter awaited the initiation of his campaign for the DA's office.

As she prepped Peter's campaign rally, Faith Fleming laughed that the whole thing had been rigged without Dalton's knowledge. Peter began to feel like a puppet, but Virginia calmed his fears. Mike declined to attend the campaign rally because some people might mistake it as an endorsement. Fleming's TV audience went crazy on camera for Dalton, who gave in to their insistence he run for office. An incredulous Mike watched Dalton's rally on TV.

Mike orders Helen to follow Toni, whom he doesn't believe is being truthful. After she leaves, Mike tells Helen to put Toni under surveillance. Mike explains to Winston that Toni was allowed to visit them and deny everything, because killing her would've drawn too much attention. However, now that she's finished her job, she could end up in the Monticello River.

Martin agrees. After explaining Mitchell's set-up, Harris warns Martin to make sure he keeps quiet about what he knows, because if he doesn't, Bebe might not ever grow up. Just after his meeting with Harris, Martin is visited by Jack who tells him that Jake does have a job for him now. Martin contacts Harris and attempts to back out of the deal to take an honest job with Jake, but Harris threatens him and his family. Realizing it's too late and there's no way out, a defeated Martin says he'll start work on Monday.
3 February 1958
Fitzsimmons demands to meet with Phillips. A frustrated Mike arrives home and grouses about Dalton, who wants to nail the wrong people to the wall. Sara advises him that his frustration stems from wanting to defend people instead of prosecute them. Sara shares with Mike that she's still unsure about going to Grace's wedding, but Mike encourages her to go. Martin's parole officer Paul Simms wants to set up an appointment, and a worried Martin talks to Hester about leaving Monticello. Phillips tells Fitzsimmons that Mike Karr is the reason his new club hasn't opened, explaining that Mike suspects it's somehow tied to Dalton's election. Fitzsimmons decides that he'll take care of Karr, but Phillips doesn't want anything that obvious when they've got a scheme going to discredit him. An angry Fitzsimmons still wants to kill Karr. Paul visits Martin and discourages him from leaving town. Sara agrees to go to the wedding, but she fears Mike's investigation into Dalton's election.
4 February 1958
Mike has a meeting with Ann, whose attorney is having her plead not guilty. Ann continues to maintain that she doesn't remember how she could've hit the man who was killed. Ann's attorney Irma Schneider warns Mike that prosecuting a woman like Ann will be political suicide. Harris tells Martin about being called to testify in the Shea accident case. Martin recalls that Harris was angry at Doll and very tired that night. Martin's comments annoy Harris, who warns him again about keeping his mouth shut.

Rosemarie laments that she seldom sees Willy these days. Sara offers to sit for the baby when Rosemarie gets a call from another man.

Jonah smirked as his blackmailer Tango began to feel the effects of the hallucinogen he slipped her. Nancy admitted to Martha that Tango is a bad influence on Laurie, and Nancy detests her. Vic met with Laurie to convince her that Tango had set him up for a fight with Jonah. Nancy resolved to force Laurie into getting rid of Tango as a roommate or risk losing support from her parents. Laurie went home to confront Tango. A vicious Jonah led Tango to the window and told her about the bad fall she would take. Nancy showed up at Laurie and Tango's apartment, and as she knocked on the door, Jonah shoved a drugged Tango out the window.

25 August 1971
Bill Marceau and Lt. Anderson arrived to investigate Tango's death. Bill asked Laurie if Tango used drugs. Mike and Nancy returned to Laurie's apartment after hearing about Tango's accident. Nancy admitted that she had talked with Jonah at Laurie's apartment after 1 o'clock, and Tango wasn't there. Bill realized that a shoe on Laurie's dresser matched the one on Tango's foot. After Vic commented to Adam that Laurie fears Jonah sometimes, Adam learned of Tango's death. Lt. Anderson questioned Jonah about the last time he saw Tango alive. Jonah stated that Tango fantasized about having wings, and she had left to buy some LSD. Jonah feared that Nancy's version of events might contradict his story.
26 August 1971
27 August 1971
Uncomfortable with being in the apartment alone after Tango's death, Laurie agreed to move back home. Nancy questioned Laurie about her relationship with Jonah. Laurie admitted that she and Jonah are "engaged to be engaged." Geraldine secretly phoned Keith and advised him to get back across the border to Mexico, but he shocked her by suggesting that he wants to come back to life. Following the memorial service for Keith, Gordon admitted to Colin and Tiffany that he thought Keith was insane. Nancy paid a surprise visit to Jonah to ask him to stop influencing Laurie. Jonah served Nancy a glass of sherry that he spiked with the same hallucinogen he used on Tango.
30 August 1971
Gordon admitted to Colin and Tiffany that as a child, Keith tried to smother a playmate with pillow to stop her from telling them that he had stolen something. Just as Nancy was about to have the spiked drink, Laurie arrived and interrupted her. Jonah suggested to Laurie that she should listen to her parents and declared that he's thinking of going back home to Georgia himself. However, after a satisfied Nancy left, Jonah laughed that he just said what he thought Nancy wanted to hear, because she's as smart as his own mother. Laurie picked up Nancy's sherry and was about to drink it, but Jonah knocked it out of her hand.

2 September 1971
At Greenhaven Sanitarium, doctors Reed and Warner were at loggerheads over Cookie's mental condition. Reed diagnosed Cookie as psychotic, but Warner insisted that she's a rational person who has been pushed too far by her husband's infidelity. Ron was distressed to learn from Dr. Reed that his tape recorder accidentally recorded Ron's confession to an affair with Tiffany, and Cookie despises him for it. Geraldine became incensed when Colin and Gordon discussed Keith's sadism. Colin recalled for his parents that Keith once locked him inside the tower at their summer estate, and left him to die so that Keith could take his place. Ron visited Cookie, who swore that she'll never forgive him. Geraldine called Dr. Warner and insisted that Cookie receive an immediate discharge from the sanitarium, otherwise, Geraldine will withdraw all of her financial contributions to them.
3 September 1971
Laurie's 21st birthday arrived with a party, but Jonah couldn't celebrate with her out of fear that Jim might recognize him as Keith Whitney. Geraldine and Gordon had an argument about Keith's sanity, and Geraldine accidentally referred to Keith in the present tense. Geraldine misconstrued Gordon's comments about Keith's joy at killing, not realizing that he was talking about harming animals. When Gordon wouldn't stop comparing Keith to a monster, Geraldine screamed that Keith is still alive, which left Gordon speechless.
6 September 1971
When Gordon was unable to accept her revelation about Keith being alive, Geraldine phoned him and let Gordon speak to his son. Keith apologized to Gordon for his indiscretions. Geraldine recalled for Gordon how Charles helped her fake Keith's death by placing the body of a John Doe in Keith's wrecked car before it burned up. Gordon understood when she explained that Keith's death would close any investigation into the death of Suella Duval's suicide, which might have harmed Colin's political success. Colin and Tiffany shuddered at the idea of what a terrible person Keith might be today had he lived. Before Dr. Warner could release her at Geraldine's request, Cookie turned up missing at Greenhaven.
7 September 1971
Geraldine told Nancy that Cookie will soon leave Greenhaven, but Nancy shared with Laurie that she thinks it's a bad idea since Dr. Reed appears more realistic about Cookie's progress than Dr. Warner. Dr. Reed feared what might happen after he learned that Cookie has left the hospital. Laurie admitted to Nancy that Jonah's absence from her birthday party was a disappointment. Gordon wondered aloud about the possibility that Keith might have killed Suella and made it look like a suicide. A stunned Nancy learned from Dr. Reed that Cookie ran away from Greenhaven.
8 September 1971
9 September 1971
10 September 1971
At the risk of being recognized as Keith, Jonah refused Laurie's request that he escort her to Liz and Jim's wedding. Jonah slipped up and referred to Jim by his old military nickname, Crazylegs. Laurie became upset when Jonah told her that he's going back to Atlanta, and it could be a permanent move. Martha was unable to attend the wedding because the doctor sedated Kate following her weird trance-like state. Family and friends gathered to witness the wedding of an ecstatic Jim and Liz. Laurie dropped by the Karr home after the wedding with Jonah. Nancy confronted Jonah about the fact that Tango's shoe was inside the apartment when he alleges that she was out buying LSD from her pusher.
13 September 1971
Jonah seethed with rage at Nancy's questions about Tango's shoe and countered that she's trying to get rid of him because she never liked him. When Nancy reminded him that his account of Tango being out buying drugs contradicts evidence about the shoe, he threatened to discredit her by insisting to Laurie that her mother is lying to break them up. Nancy kept Jonah's threats to herself after Mike and Laurie came into the room. Kate pretended to be asleep while Martha and Bill disagreed about her. When Bill left the room, Kate pretended to wake up, and she warned Martha that a spirit is attempting to possess her soul. Bill phoned the Karrs with news that Cookie arrived safely in Paris and is with her parents. Jonah lied to Laurie that Nancy is railroading him into a murder rap to stop them from marrying.
14 September 1971
Vic's heart broke over Mike's comments that Laurie is engaged to Jonah. Nancy received word from her parents that Cookie is all right. Lt. Anderson and Bill lamented the fact that they have no suspects in Rosella's murder now that Jim is cleared. Bill confided to Adam and Nicole that he's worried Martha might start to believe Kate's wild stories about ghosts and the supernatural. Kate cautioned Martha that the ghosts of a woman and her lover are walking the Marceau home. Kate went into another trance and started to grab Martha from behind.
15 September 1971
16 September 1971
Nancy told Dr. Reed that Cookie is safe with her parents in Paris. Reed and Dr. Warner squabbled again with Reed insisting that Cookie isn't totally cured and could still be dangerous. Dr. Reed wondered what was going on when Dr. Warner suggested that he keep quiet and could get a nice promotion, even in the face of budget cuts. The situation became clearer when Reed took a call from Geraldine, and she confessed that she's providing significant financial backing. Gordon wanted to see Keith, but Geraldine said that she's going to get him back to Mexico as soon as possible. Jonah learned from Laurie that Nancy went to see the cops. Worried that she might have told them her theory about Tango's shoe, Jonah went to confront Nancy and found her alone and vulnerable.
17 September 1971
Jonah confronted Nancy about her report to the police. Nancy assured Jonah that she wasn't trying to get him in trouble, but she was concerned about the discrepancy over the shoe. Jonah told another lie to explain how Tango could have come back to the apartment while he was out doing laundry, but Nancy rejected that theory because the window was closed after Tango fell. Jonah drugged Nancy's drink to buy time. Mike invited Laurie to supper to help take Nancy's mind off the trouble with Cookie. Mike called Nancy, interrupting Jonah, who was about to kill an unconscious Nancy. Jonah took Nancy to the garage and placed her in the car, where he tied her hands to the steering wheel. Jonah started the engine, locked Nancy in the garage, and left her to die from the exhaust fumes.
20 September 1971
21 September 1971
Nancy needed CPR to start breathing again. The Whitneys wondered if Nancy had attempted suicide, but their chauffeur said that he found Nancy with her hands bound. Mike phoned and learned from Gordon what happened to Nancy. Mike asked Gordon to hold off on informing the police. Martha insisted to Bill that Kate must be on the level because if she wanted their house back, she couldn't make the mortgage payments. Mike phoned Bill about Nancy's situation. The doctor reassured the Karrs that Nancy will recover. Mike and Bill speculated that Nancy was attacked by a burglar. Nancy regained consciousness and was ready to identify her assailant.
22 September 1971
Nancy told everyone that Jonah tried to kill her. Laurie flatly refused to believe that Jonah' is capable of murder. Geraldine argued that Nancy must have been disoriented by the fumes she inhaled. Colin reassured Tiffany and Ron that he has forgiven them for their affair and doesn't hold any grudges. Tiffany told Ron that she's certain Cookie will come back to him. Dr. Reed took drastic action after learning that Geraldine is using her money to pull strings at Greenhaven. Laurie attempted to clear Jonah's name by telling Bill that Jonah couldn't be responsible for Nancy's attack because he was flying back to Georgia at the time. Bill tried to verify Laurie's story but discovered that Jonah actually bought a one-way ticket to Mexico.
23 September 1971
Bill and Lt. Anderson went over Jonah's apartment with a fine tooth comb. The airline confirmed that Jonah was not on his scheduled flight to Mexico. Nicole and Adam were mortified to hear that someone attempted to kill Nancy. Bill and Lt. Anderson couldn't find any evidence of Jonah, including a fingerprint to help identify him. Bill speculated about how a student without a job could afford the expensive apartment where Jonah resided. While Bill was out investigating Jonah, Martha heard the mysterious laughing in her house. Convinced it was a tape recording, Martha followed the laughing to a closet. When she opened the closet door, Martha saw the face of a man peering at her from the darkness, and she began to scream hysterically.
24 September 1971
Adam learned that Jonah was the person who attacked Nancy. Geraldine aroused Gordon's suspicions when she steadfastly declared that Jonah Lockwood couldn't have been responsible for the attempted murder of Nancy. Adam theorized that Nancy's attack had to be related to her intention to expose Keith Whitney's marriage to Suella Duval and Suella's subsequent suicide. Nancy awoke again and assured Laurie that it was Jonah who attacked her. Geraldine told Gordon that Keith went into hiding in Mexico. Geraldine and Gordon were stunned when Keith casually walked through the front door and pretended that nothing had ever happened.
