Corporate multimillionaire William P. Bissell slaps Community General with a frightening lawsuit for malpractice for an operation on both knees which got him in a wheelchair because he ignored all doctor's orders, but Norman Briggs gets him to accept more treatment and reconsider if cured. An accident puts Mark in bed, but while taunting him 'on the other side' Bissel dies from an O.D. of his regular medicine, which must have been administered during visiting hours. Motives are obvious for Bill's CFO and heir apparent Thomas Taylor, whom he had just demoted to division head in Europe, and now succeeds as CEO, widow Emily Bissell, loving mistress Jenny Morley, and his sued orthopedic surgeon Karen Fielder, who has a hidden past. Meanwhile Steve is sleepy because he has started a night course in law, and Mark is determined to do something about the lousy monotonous hospital food even if it takes blackmailing Norman.
