Downhill All the Way
10 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Raymond Burr gave a magnificent acting performance in this episode. Ironside seems to have great knowledge of autistic children, which is not explained, but he isn't the gruff Ironside that we expect. An autistic boy witnesses a murder, but can't tell the police about it. Ironside offers to have the child tested to see if he will speak. The child bonds with Ironside. When they are out fishing, an attempt to kill Ironside and the boy. The plan that Ironside hatches to catch the attempted murderer of the boy leaves his staff and friends wondering what will happen to the Chief. I was kept guessing who the suspect was until the end. If you love the relationship between the Chief and Fran, Mark, and Ed, this is the episode for you.
