The second part of "Almost Paradise" brought back Christine, Lilly's estranged sister who appeared again in her life, out of nowhere. The relationship between the siblings is strained because of Christine's addiction to drugs. It is clear she is reaching out to the sister that has it all together; in a way, one's sympathies go to this lost woman, even though she is not showing any repentance, although it becomes clear at the end why Christine acted the way she did.

In the last installment, an old unsolved case has been haunting Will Jeffries ever since it happened some thirteen years earlier. The murder of Wanda Johnson was a strange one. She was a black girl that had it all going for her. She was the unfortunate victim for being at the wrong place, at the wrong time. It will take detective Jeffries' determination to find out the ones responsible for the murder. The two men that committed the crime got away without being punished, one of the guys had an excellent connection to the police and got away without punishment all throughout the years.

Jeannot Szwarc, a frequent collaborator of the program, directed the final installment. The two part series was written by Greg Plageman and Elwood Reid. All the regulars appear in the episode. Kathryn Morris, Danny Pino, John Finn, Jeremy Ratchford, Thom Barry and Traci Thoms, made us care about the weekly program that, sadly, will only exist in reruns. The guest cast does justice to Mr. Szwarc's direction.
