Episode Summary

All the King's Horses
Businessman Franklin Danforth is distracted by Ward Matthews, an opportunistic private investigator who claims he has located Danforth's granddaughter Karen, who disappeared 16 years ago. The detective wants to collect the $100,000 reward, but Danforth angrily dismisses Matthews's claim, having been pestered for years by fraudulent claims. Matthews coaches Karen on details she would remember as Danforth's granddaughter, and eventually Matthews succeeds in introducing her to Danforth. Having spent her early childhood in an orphanage, Karen wants to believe that Danforth is her real grandfather. Although Matthews is exposed as a fraud, Danforth decides to suspend doubt and welcome Karen into the family. After a long, suspenseful wait, Dave receives the results from his second try at the bar examination and learns that he is now a lawyer. While Peter and Christine temporarily cool their steamy romance, an advertising man, Gary Marsh, uses Christine as a model in the hotel's promotion campaign and charms Christine into a dinner date. Meanwhile, Peter enjoys dinner with Linda Davis, the tomboy he grew up with, and notices that she is now beautiful. While Christine is disappointed to discover that Gary is married, Peter turns down an obvious pass from Linda. Later that night, Peter and Christine turn to each other for friendly support.moreless
