Episode Summary

EDIT
The Dancing Bandit
AIRED:
Laurie Bey, who robs from the rich to give to the poor, arrives with her husband, Cole, and her gang. She's nicknamed "The Dancing Bandit" because she does a dance after a hold-up. They take hostages at the Rome bank, including Jill and Zach, and hold it up before escaping. When Laurie learns Zach's sign language lessons were cancelled due to lack of cash, the gang dress as Dorothy and friends from the Wizard of Oz to teach his class how to sign "Over the Rainbow." They flee as the cops arrive but Jimmy shoots Laurie in the back. The gang bring her to Jill's office for treatment, and Jill finds she has a heart arrythmia. Zach visits Laurie in hospital. Having quickly formed a bond with her, he's mad with Jimmy for shooting her but she tells him not to be angry with him. A chopper arrives to fly Laurie to Chicago for surgery, but Jill later learns Cole gave her an injection to fake the arrythmia and there was nothing wrong with her - it was all a ploy to help her escape, and the chopper was flown by the gang. Cole tells Jill she'll be back - she promised, and she always keeps her promises.moreless

      • Marlee Matlin was nominated for an Emmy Award as Outstanding Guest Actress for her role as Laurie Bay.

      • Marlee Matlin makes her first appearance as Laurie Bey and she's just wonderful, especially in her scenes with Zach. She does indeed return, next season.

        There's a nice touch when the robbers dress as the Wizard of Oz characters: they're wearing the costumes the Rome citizens wore for the performance back in the Pilot, and the Tin Man still has the hole in his chest that Jimmy cut when Phil Banks had his heart attack during the show.
