Let me begin this by saying that this wasn't my favorite episode, even though both stories were written very well, but one story wasn't terribly interesting to me, and the other almost brought a tear to my eye. Some familiar faces include Eve Plumb, Alison Arngrim, Donnie Most, Michelle Pfeiffer, and a brief cameo by MLB pitcher Don Sutton, which is his only acting credit. The story that didn't do it for me starred Most, who looks a lot like Larry Bird here, as a hack artist looking to paint a masterpiece. Although I think the story came together decently enough, I also found it rather dull, and I didn't buy the fact that Pfeiffer's character would be interested, and leave the island together with Most's character, strangely named Kermit. The other story was meant to be sad, as a woman(Plumb), who already knows she will die in labor, wishes to see her unborn daughter, played by Arngrim, in certain stages of her life. To add to the sadness, the late Heather O'Rourke plays her daughter as a young child; this was her first acting gig too. There's one sticky situation that Elizabeth(Plumb)has to get her daughter out of, and that was probably the best moment overall. I was hoping that Mr. Roarke could somehow save her life after she gives birth to her daughter in another month, but that wasn't meant to be. A bummer of an ending, I thought.
