In the last episode to be telecast (apparently the show's cancellation came as a surprise to the producers if the three additional episodes listed here are correct), Fran is going to night-school art classes. Returning to the classroom to pick something up, she sees a clay model of a woman's face horribly mangled by a set of fingernails. Fran leaves again and is immediately set upon by someone who beats her comatose and leaves her for dead. Fran recovers enough to tell about what she saw, and Ironside's crew tries to figure out the motive. The clay sculpture was apparently of a now-murdered woman and her killer attacked Fran, but nobody saw the attack and Ironside must question everyone in the art class to find a psychotic.

No common denominator
26 February 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Improving her education nearly gets Elizabeth Baur killed one night as she's grabbed and beaten comatose by some psychotic on the college campus. Good thing that people heard the commotion otherwise Officer Belding would be dead. As it is even when she awakens, she can't remember all that much to help the investigation. Of course the Ironside squad jumps into this case.

There were two women murdered before the attack on Elizabeth Baur, a couple of coeds and a professor killed after her incident. The thing is that none of these women knew each other and there is apparently no common denominator. There is one for the other three and as for Baur, it's something that if she remembers can finger the murderer.

This was the last Ironside episode broadcast as the series was cancelled abruptly. With guest stars like Don Barry, Richard Anderson, Coleen Gray, and Gary Frank, Raymond Burr's team went out with a winner.
