Storyline

While in Los Angeles to testify for a trial against gangster Frank Harmon, Ed is shot and falls off the balcony of his hotel room. He is then taken to the Craig Institute where he undergoes emergency surgery. Although the bullet wounds were non-life threatening, Ed suffers a broken back in the fall and some damage to his spine. The scarring leaves him paralyzed and only an experimental surgical procedure is the only option to regaining his mobility. Also, even though all the evidence points to Harmon, Ironside has doubts that he was the person responsible for the attempted hit. Also, the chief begins having flashbacks to the night he was shot and paralyzed. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

What about Part II?
8 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just watched this episode on RetroTV. Many of the events in the episode were unresolved when it concluded. At the end, it is noted that it will continue in Part II. But the Episode Guide does not show any second part of this episode. The Part I is definitely one of the more interesting episodes and offers few clues as to how the many events included will be resolved. Some of the significant guest stars in this episode are not shown as appearing in any other episode. A continuation of the events of Part I in Part II would absolutely require their appearance. E.G. Marshall, David Hartman, and Vic Morrow are among these stars. So it looks as if the second part of this episode never was aired. Does anyone have additional information?

There is indeed Part II of this episode. RetroTV featured it the following day. Very interesting. Watch both episodes if you have opportunity.
