Not recommended for first time parents
19 January 2012 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"One of the Family" is a potentially terrifying episode, not recommended for first time parents. A young Los Angeles couple, Dexter Dailey (Jeremy Slate) and wife Joyce (Kathryn Hays), hire Dexter's old nursemaid Frieda (Lilia Skala) to help care for their newborn son. The strangely edgy Frieda offers no references to Joyce, and gives her a phony name for a previous employer. Hearing about a German nurse who was suspected of killing an infant in San Francisco by lacing the bottle with poison, Joyce decides to contact the grieving parents to inquire about the now missing nanny. She instead receives a surprise visit from the dead baby's aunt (Olive Deering), who shows Joyce a photo of the child with the nurse, indeed revealed to be Frieda, whose recent arrival coincided with an unexpected bout of stomach trouble for the Dailey baby. Best remembered for her delicate mime in the STAR TREK episode "The Empath," Kathryn Hays is most affecting as the worried young mother, with brief appearances by Willis Bouchey as the child's doctor, and Doris Lloyd as the San Francisco housemaid who first answers Joyce's call.
