Storyline

The only eyewitness to the death of Old Charlie, brought on by a taunting joyrider who harassed him, is young Marly Devon, who teaches at a daycare center. Jill remembers Marly from a previous assignment, and that she functioned at a seven-year-old cognitive level. Thanks to experimental therapy (including a special diet and megadoses of vitamins) and longtime counseling, Marly is now of almost normal functioning. But will she make a credible witness, especially when side-effects of her treatments begin to show?

Tyne Daly's First Appearance In The Series
11 January 2019 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Chad Bennett is a spoiled rich kid who chases an old drunk in the parking lot with a sports car. The man dies of a heart attack. The only witness is Marly Devon, a mentally handicapped young woman.

An excellent episode, one of the best. It is made great by the touching performance of Daly as Marly Devon. Daly at the time was married to series star Georg Stanford Brown. It seems that Marly is being treated with an experimental medicine which helps her mental capacity, similar to the plot of the Cliff Robertson film "Charly".
