Mrs. Howell the social worker
7 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Matchmaker" finds Mrs. Howell missing the social season on this dreary island, inspired to match Gilligan and Mary Ann as potential marriage material. A reluctant Mr. Howell gives in to help work on Gilligan while his wife takes an interest in Mary Ann, but all the two accomplish is an argument that drives them apart. The other castaways pitch in to reunite the two by recreating the night of their proposal at the Tour d'Argent. Tina Louise gets to sing in her most romantic French, and everyone enjoys playing their respective roles, though Gilligan's questionable abilities as a waiter make for a few anxious moments. The community hut is yet again a tip off that this is one of the earliest scripts, the first of many in which the Howells fall from grace with each other.
