Mary receives a telephone call from Tom Vernon, an old flame who is in town for a short visit. Mary has mixed feelings about Tom's call: she was in love with him and still may very well be, but was always frustrated in their relationship as he didn't seem to be there for her as much as she wanted which left her angry after their dates, but pining for his calls after that anger subsided. After to-ing and fro-ing, Mary decides to see Tom. Their reunion brings back all those old feelings, both the good and bad which haven't changed. Conversely, Tom still too seems to be in love with her. But if things haven't changed, Mary has to decide if they have any future. Meanwhile, Ted has a business trip to Washington D.C., where he expects to be able to interview the President. Written by Huggo

Mr. Baxter Goes to Washington
10 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Apparently, there was someone in Mary's past with whom she fell in love. He is a guy played by Joseph Campanella who is self centered and manipulative. He walks in and out of her life and she turns into a wet noodle when he's around. She knows he is trouble but still loves him. There are times when Mary's status as a liberated woman is diminished in these episodes. The whole interaction between the two of them is incredibly uninteresting. The much more interesting subplot involves the station sending Ted to Washington to interview important political figures, including the Secretary of State. His knowledge of the whole political world is so lacking, it's hard to imagine him even being allowed to represent the station.
