Above average episode in a below average series

"For Better, for Worse" is one of three episodes of this show in which Gloria Loring as Melissa Dixon is featured. It is one of the few substantial roles this former soap star has ever gotten in prime time, and she proves herself up to the task of carrying the dramatic onus of the story. This in a series in which the highest quality is never demanded of the actors. Occasionally some of them just give it. (Though Branscombe Richmond as Bobby Sixkiller always brings maximum chops to his role.)

Loring plays a woman who is married to a man who may have once been more or less good but is now completely rotten. She wrestles with the issue of turning him in, as well as the problem that since he is a corrupt law enforcement officer, she doesn't know who to turn him in to, since she doesn't know which authorities might be his corrupt allies. So she turns to people who might be more than a bit shady themselves. Reciting a standard corny line, Lorenzo Lamas as hero Reno Raines, reminds her that courage isn't being brave, it's being scared and doing the brave thing anyway. Her character lives that out but, in a bitter ending, without reward.
