    The women of the cul-de-sac proved in this episode that they were not the typical wimpy primetime drama dames who expected their men to save them. After all, Abby attempts to seduce one so to overcome him (and she does...overcome him, that is, getting his gun), wily Diana escapes unnoticed to alert the police of the situation, Karen and Val fight the tough mama robber, Laura and Abby almost manage an Alexis-Krystal catfight). The episode ends with that famous "Knots" music, wrapping up the end of a long night with not a disaster or cliffhanger but its usual moment, a realistic, tragedy-free story that was fast-paced, tense, dramatic, exciting, frightening and emotional.moreless
