EDIT
An Angel by Any Other Name
AIRED:
Tess works for a local nursery, and Monica is a postal carrier in the middle-class neighborhood where IRS auditor Carolyn Sellers lives. An avid gardener, she is eager to have her rose hybrid officially recognized but becomes dismayed when three people with Down Syndrome move into a group home next door to her. Tess tries to convince the hardened woman to calm down and accept Taylor, Jeannie, and David for the loving, sensitive people they are, but she refuses. Andrew, the group home supervisor, is nonplused when her first encounter with Carolyn is a tactic threat to "keep those people in line." After Taylor stops Stevie Sanders, a neighborhood boy, from playing in her vintage 57 Chevy, the car rolls down the driveway, crushes Stevie's bike, and just misses a young girl due to Tess' sudden intervention. Furious, Carolyn blames Taylor and calls the police. She also works her neighbors into a frenzy to take action against the group home. The next day Taylor confides in Monica, who says God has a purpose for his predicament. Taylor responds he knows that because he's an angel, she agress he's the kindest, sweetest angel she's ever met. He goes to talk to Carolyn, who in the midst of berating him suffers a stroke. Thanks to Taylor's quick thinking, paramedics arrive in time to help her. But upon learning his part in her rescue, Carolyn continues to hold a grudge. Taylor continues to aid with her rehabilitation despite her constant rejection. Tess, Jeannie, and David have also tended her garden to prepare for the Rose Association's visit. Realizing that Carolyn has started a petition to shut down the group home, Andrew asks Taylor to tell the truth about the car accident. He responds, "Everything in its time." The night before the rose committee's visit, a severe thunderstorm devastates the garden. The next day, Andrew and Taylor, who is indeed an angel, encourage the woman to get out of bed. As Stevie's mom announces the city has agreed to close the group home, the boy confesses his role in the accident. The rose committee arrives, and Taylor produces a beautiful, but lone rose. Although the flower by itself does not qualify for the registry, Carolyn realizes it's good enough for her.moreless
