Sam moves in with Adam Wainwright to help run his guest house though, due to his shyness, they are not a couple. One of the tenants, Mandy Dean, is having a tough time, raising a baby fathered by black G.I. Gabe Kelly. Her old boyfriend Tommy Duggan is devastated when he returns and makes the discovery. To Foyle's dismay segregation is enforced in Hastings to prevent inter-racial fights and Gabe is beaten up for dancing with Mandy in public. They plan to move to New York but she is murdered on the night a robbery takes place at Gabe's barracks. Two pleasant boarders at the guest house are not what they seem but, with Mandy's killer behind bars, Gabe has an unusual offer of help to mind his child until he can return from New York for her.

Typical American Production... "Must contain obligatory - Whites are evil, blacks are good and innocent victims."
12 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm appalled by what Icon has done with this season, and especially this episode.

Sam doing nude art? Ummm, did they watch the previous seasons?! Her character wouldn't do that.

This episode is a carbon copy of at least one episode in every season of every show in America (I'm American, by the way). The production companies, writers or whoever ALWAYS put an episode in about how evil and racist whites are, and how resilient, forgiving, courageous, forward-thinking and morally superior the blacks are (no, I'm not going to call them African-Americans, just like I wouldn't refer to myself as a European America or a Native American or anything like that).

When many of us see TV/Movies like that, the credibility of the work takes a nosedive.

I absolutely LOVED the previous six seasons (five according to Netflix, but what do they know).

I moderately enjoyed the first episode of this season, but it was "off" in terms of its understanding of the main characters, as their portrayal was inconsistent with the previous seasons.

I HATED "Killing Time" due to the aforementioned cookie-cutter race-card crap, and now I'm afraid to watch the last episode.

I guess I'lll just have to pretend season seven never happened.
