Episode Summary

EDIT
The Robe
AIRED:
Satan comes to Cicely as a whirlpool salesman; he offers to fulfill Shelly's fantasy of making the Brick a major casino. Ed makes a mistake and skews the results of a cold medicine test that Joel is running for John Hopkins. Chris gets a ventriloquist's dummy and adds him to his radio show, but the dummy becomes more popular, because he "shoots straight from the hip." Maurice is convinced that Joel's cold medicine contains a new appetite suppressant and he presses Joel to tell him what it is. When that doesn't work, he gets Hayden to try to steal the information. To make her fantasy come true, all Shelly must do is burn Holling's old bathrobe.moreless

    This episode is in the running for worst in the entire series run. The story thread of Chris and the ventriloquist dummy is horrible. It is painful to watch Chris's character completely lose all shred of dignity, and the other actors seem to be muddling through these awkward scenes. The thread of Shelley confronting Satan over Holling's bath robe is completely absurd. There are still a few flickerings of the show's previous brilliance during this season, but this episode isn't one of them.moreless
