  • A callous mother has her son kill a young man who is jeopardizing her 'wrongful life lawsuit'. The witch had used her pregnancy to force what she thought was a cash-in marriage, and deliberately overlooked advice to have tests down on the fetus.

    This was an interesting episode and the young people in the cast especially poignant. Goren, as usual in scenes with children or teens, is touchingly tender.

    The mom was a villain one really relished hating, adding to the story's interest. But the best aspect of this one was Bobby woke up, hence the 'flashback' classification.

    V D'O was more "old Bobbyish" than in other late fifth-season episodes, which gives one hope his notorious, self-assessed 'short attention' span has not completely played itself out on the Goren persona.

    Anyway, the script gave him more to work with than some of the recent writing.
