  • Love is in the air - stop her quick!

    Pepper Dennis's coworker, on the rebound from her break-up with a certain person Pepper knows - impulsively drops five grand on a dating service.

    She decides she wants to get out of it and get some help from Pepper. Predictably, Pepper detects some loose threads that seem to indicate some hanky-panky is going on - and it is not the romantic kind at all.

    Pepper morphs from strong, supportive friend to Super Investigative Reporter.

    This story was really good, had lots of ups and downs, and had some neat lessons.

    One was that even success can be a letdown. The other is that people's immediate prior experiences can strongly influence them in subsequent situations.

    This episode was a fantastic setup for the series finale, which the preview at the end said is going to be the next episode. After you see this episode, you will definitely want to see that episode.moreless
