Episode Summary

EDIT
Knots Landing: Back to the Cul-De-Sac (1)
AIRED:
The mini-series opens up when recently unemployed factory workers turn to Mack MacKenzie for help in suing Greg Sumner for wrongful termination. When Sumner bought the factory from Gary Ewing, he fired everyone regardless of the written agreement he signed promising not to close the factory. The agreement, however, is in a box somewhere in the Ewing warehouse. Back at the cul-de-sac, the conniving neighbor, Abby, announces to Karen and Val that she will be moving to Malibu. But the joy is short-lived when the IRS freezes all of Abby's assets for failure to pay over $1 million in back taxes. Abby then convinces Greg Sumner to pay her $1 million to steal the agreement from the Ewing warehouse. Soon after he arrives back to his ranch, Greg is surprised when Anne Sumner returns after four years in Paris. Mack and his wife Karen are approached by Meg, their adopted daughter, who asks for the truth about the identity of her real biological father. Mack will never reveal the answer and chooses to lie to Meg again. At the Ewing home, Val, now a best-selling author, is beaming when she tells Gary exciting news. A major film studio will be making a movie based on her latest novel and she will co-write the screen play. Clay McKinney, a once promising writer whose career was plagued by his alcoholism, was assigned to be her writing partner. Meanwhile, Gary gets an unexpected visit from Kate, Greg Sumner's niece, who has some very disturbing news of her own.moreless

      • Allegedly, CBS had planned to air this mini series on April 30 and May 2, but switched to May 7 & 9 when it was learned that ABC would air their one hour episode of ELLEN, in which Ellen DeGeneres and her sitcom character both come out as lesbian, on April 30th.

      • Val's latest book is based on a plot development from the show's last season- her kidnapping, presumed death and return from the dead.

      • In the opening scene, Nicollette Sheridan (Paige) makes an uncredited cameo that was reporteldy filmed after the completion of the mini-series. In this scene, Paige leaves Sumner for good because she wants children and he doesn't.

      • Former cast members Kim Lankford (Ginger), Claudia Lonow (Diana) and Tonya Crowe (Olivia) make cameo appearances at Karen and Mack's anniversary party. Ginger reveals that she and Kenny have divorced. Olivia, meanwhile, presumably no longer together with her husband Harold as she mentions to Abby that she has to leave to meet "Danny."
