Storyline

Erskine faces problems in his personal life and at work at the same time. His 19-year-old daughter, Barbara, insists on marrying his partner, Rhodes, right now. This puts more pressure on Erskine, who already had misgivings. Meanwhile, assistant director Arthur Ward questions Erskine's approach to catching a bank robber. A man has already confessed to the crimes. But Erskine is convinced the illegitimate son of another bank robber is the real culprit. Ward tells his chief investigator he's being stubborn and questions his judgment. Written by Bill Koenig

A most atypical episode!
17 August 2006 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

This episode, only the fourth out of 240, was so atypical! Pursuing the villain isn't the focus here. Inspector Erskine's personal issues, exposed in episode 1, seem to be dealt with here. What stands out is how we really get into his persona, and see what happens with him, his daughter Barbara, SAC Jim Rhodes and Joanna Laurens, played by Lee Meriwether.

The dialogue is crisp, and the guest stars, especially Pete Duel and Harold Gould, are excellent!! I don't recommend this sort of episode as the the rule for The FBI, but something like this is well worth watching, because you get to see the human side of these characters.
