      The Bad Seed
      Episode 1
      Riley, armed with what is probably an illegally obtained copy of her birth certificate, sets out to find her mother. After being picked up by an older man at the Airport, who promises her food, Riley soon finds herself in a difficult situation. Not to worry though, Riley knows just where to put the tooth pick from her sandwich, making her get away. She soon finds Opal, whom she believes to be her aunt. Although wary of the young stranger, Opal does try to find out if this is her sister Pearl's child. When Pearl responds by email from Finland, where she lives with her Guru, she claims she is not Riley's mother. Opal, apparently having more faith in Riley than her own sister, allows Riley to stay with her while they try to find the truth. Opal, however, has problems of her own. Although, she is next in line for the job when the principal drops dead, her ex-boyfriend (Mitch) is given the position. Until, that is, Riley sees the school superintendent on TV. After making a phone call to the man who had bought her a sandwich earlier in the show, Opal is suddenly given the job after all.moreless
