This one is so well-done. One of the best in suspense, creativity, writing, direction, sound editing, the works. Whatever creative snafus they were going thru this season, this episode was a diamond. Mimi Rogers plays a nutjob stalker that believes she has a relationship with Jonathan after a random encounter in a restaurant. She is absolutely fabulous in this role. Eventually, everyone remotely involved with Jonathan becomes a purposeful interloper between her and him. Unfortunately, Jonathan's new secretary, is played by the very good Jill Andre. I say unfortunately, because we won't be seeing her a second time. I am happy to report, however, that at least she used her seat belt. BLOOPER ALERT --> About 29 minutes in, Stefanie corrects her stride to make it easier to walk while holding RJ's arm. Lyman Ward stops by for his second of four stints as Lt. Draper, and he's actually really good. He's the straightest cop they've had as a B-character so far. Mimi plays crazy stalker very well, and whomever dressed both Mimi and anything remotely connected to her in red did a fabulous job. Red lipstick, red clothes, red bed linens, a zillion lit red candles, bleeding, red, red, rare prime rib, red wine, red nail polish. This is also the rare episode where we see someone smoking a real cigarette. So weird to see such a thing after all these years. Shows that while H2H stands up to time quite well, things like this bring you back to the early '80's quickly. The climactic sequence at the end is unbelievably good, especially Stefanie and Mimi. Big kudos to Art Directors Ross Bellah and James J. Agazzi, costumers Grady Hunt and Diana Reynolds, set decorators Audrey Blasdel-Goddard and James I. Colburn, and especially Director Karen Arthur. Perfection.
