insistence on firing Gary's lawyer at a crucial moment in the trial
backfires. He refuses to be fired by Gary's "friend" and goes on the
offensive in the courtroom, forcing Detective Baines to admit that her only

meets Ben Gibson, unaware that he is a reporter after her statement concerning the trial.

The clock is ticking for Abby: Gary's divorce from Val will be finalized

be the new Mrs. Ewing by the time he inherits. That way, if they divorce,
she can demand half of his fortune in a settlement. Diana and the
MacKenzies return from Oklahoma, with Diana legally able to refuse to
testify against Chip/Tony. Still bitter at her mother, Diana chooses to
live at the ranch with Gary and Abby. Gary, sensing that Abby might be

about taking the post. Because Chip/Tony only admitted his crime to Diana
(and she won't talk] Knots Landing:, Chip/Tony is freed. Lilimae, who feels responsible
for bringing Chip/Tony into the cul-de-sac, begs Diana, then Chip/Tony, to
do the right thing, but she refuses and he makes a fool of her. Lilimae

Through some clever maneuvering, Abby buys out the management company that
covers Karen's share of the Lotus Point property, thus Karen has no idea
what is really being planned. Laura does, however, and she decides to ask
for a cut of the project in order to keep her mouth shut. Abby now needs
Greg's help with the Coastal Commission. He is not sympathetic, even
throwing her out of his limo! Gary finds the Ciji lookalike, who is
actually Cathy Geary. When Gary brings Cathy out to the ranch, Laura's red
hair nearly turns white at the sight of Cathy. Val has decided to date Ben
Gibson despite their misunderstanding earlier in the month. Karen has

Despite Greg's posturing to the press and to his friend Mack about his
devotion to the fight against organized crime, we see that Greg is involved
with a mobster named Mark St. Claire. The arrival of Greg's daughter,
Mary-Frances, certainly gets Eric's attention; seeing Greg and Abby in a
comfortable embrace gets both Eric and Mary-Frances's attention. Gary
offers Cathy a job at the ranch and seems to want to mold her into what
Ciji was, which freaks Laura out. Both Karen and Diana are acting
strangely; by episode's end we discover that Karen's behavior is because of
the drug she is taking, and Diana's behavior is because she is hiding
Chip/Tony out on the ranch grounds.

The police think that Chip/Tony may be hiding at the ranch, so Diana is
careful to keep him hidden. She does feel the loss from rejecting her
mother and family in favor of Chip/Tony, however. Mack, in his position on
Greg's Crime Commission, is going after Mark St. Claire. When Greg gets
Abby her variance for the Lotus Point property, she is very grateful; Laura
spots Abby "showing her gratitude". Chip/Tony is planning to run away from
the ranch, and not with Diana as he had led her to believe. As he makes his
getaway, he spots new ranch-hand Cathy and is understandably shocked. He
falls on a pitchfork and impales himself.

After a stint in a sanitarium, Lilimae is free on a three-year suspended

attends the funeral that she realizes just what she's done. She is in
select company at Chip/Tony's funeral; he was not exactly the most popular
guy. Chip/Tony's sister, Angie's only concern seems to be who will pay for
the burial! Karen's behavior due to the drugs is beginning to become
noticeable, but she does not realize how dependent she really is. When Ben
grills Laura for information on the goings-on at Gary Ewing Enterprises,
she is cool; when Laura grills Greg for information on the Lotus Point
project, he is more than cool--he's smitten.

Telling Lilimae about her pregnancy is Val's baaaad mistake; telling her to

bricks quickly enough when he learns from Val that Gary is the father. An
older couple refuse to sell their adjacent Lotus Point property to Apolune,

reputation, and next they have him beaten up in an effort to keep him from
digging into the Lotus Point project, where Abby is an unwilling partner
with Mark. Laura, in an attempt to cover her tracks, suggests Karen's pills
had made her hallucinate that offer on the LP property. Ben wants to accept
an offer to report from Central America. When Gary discovers that Cathy

Armed with the facts given to him by Laura, Mack begins to put pressure on
Abby to tell him about Wolfbridge's involvements with her company. She sees
that everything could be unraveling, but feels that Cathy (and Gary's

due to the Wolfbridge investigation, tries unsuccessfully to patch things
up. Gary discovers Laura's deceit, then in rapid order discovers Abby's as

through investigating Wolfbridge, when in fact the Governor has asked him
to rejoin the Crime Commission to snoop around. Suffering her own private

On a book tour in New York, Val is told by a mystery man that Gary is alive and that she should expect a phone call from
Mark St. Claire when she gets back to Knots Landing. Mark approaches Karen directly, telling her that four events were
going to play out in the near future:

1. Diana will cancel her lunch appointment with Karen,
2. A mechanic at KLM will have to leave early from work,
3. Her brother would call from New York with some good news, and
4. Mack will be killed if she did not stop his investigation....oh, and Gary will be, too.

Mack, meanwhile, has taken Abby to see the very-alive, and very angry Gary at a hotel. He wants nothing to do with her.

When numbers 1, 2, and 3 happen in rapid order, Karen frantically tries to find Mack in order to prevent #4.
Mark places the call to Val, telling her she is needed at the hotel to help Gary. She is told to sit in Mack's jeep
and to wait for Gary to exit the hotel. Karen, though, has been told that there is a bomb in Mack's jeep.

Greg gets on television and announces the existence of the Wolfbridge organization, as well as his "unwitting"
participation in their schemes. He begs the forgiveness of the public.

As Abby and St. Claire arrive together, Gary and Mack are crossing the hotel lobby. Val is in the jeep, and Karen
arrives to announce that there is a bomb in Mack's jeep. Gary runs for Val, then gets shot at by a Wolfbridge hitwoman.
Karen is shot instead. Seeing his plan foiled, St. Claire kidnaps Abby.
