Joe Tobin calls lawyer Leonard Winstone after accidentally hitting Danielle Marchetti with his car. Winstone arranges for a doctor to examine her but Joe ignores his advice and takes her to the airport even after she's begins to show symptoms of a possible brain hemorrhage. Patty Hewes' attempts to find her and keep her from leaving the country fall on deaf ears at the DA's office, however, so it's left up to her and Tom Shayes to locate her and find a reason to justify a subpoena. Tom Shayes has dinner with his parents-in-law to tell them about the loss of their investments. Ellen Parsons travels to her parents home in New Jersey for a family dinner and learns that her sister's husband has run off. She also discovers something else about her sister. Written by garykmcd

The Search for Danielle
11 April 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Patty needs to subpoena Danielle Marchetti but she can't find her. That's because Joe Tobin and Leonard Winstone have her holed up in her house. After Joe struck her with his car, she is suffering from a concussion. They need to get her out of the country, but Patty has intervened, and things are getting tense. Joe apparently has a past where he had to go into rehab. He and Danielle actually had a relationship but she moved on to dear old Dad. The episode ends with a trip to the airport that proves eventful. A second story is Tom having to tell his wife's parents that he has basically bankrupted them. And, finally, Ellen's sister is visiting the family. She has a new baby but there is great unhappiness in her. Ellen's father is really abusive the sister. Ellen makes a discovery and makes a phone call as the episode ends.
