A religious nun healing?/ and cupid games.
29 October 2007 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

This episode 5 of the 1985-86 season featuring two episodes "If She Dies" and "Ye Gods" was overall an okay one, yet mysterious and fairy tale type mixed with religion and magic. I will give my take on each.

First "If She Dies" is heart warming and sentimental featuring Tony LoBianco as a father of a young girl who's life all of a sudden takes a tragic and twisted turn when one morning his car crashes on a side curb and it critically hurts his daughter putting her in a coma. The news is not good as she has no hopes of recovery. Yet that's why strange things take place in the twilight zone, when one day an apparition appears at an old abandoned orphanage that used to be inhabited by spiritual nuns. A miracle transformation awaits in this heart warming and religious themed episode. Well done.

Then the second offering features a business man(David Dukes) who doesn't have much luck in love until he meets the man himself that being Mr. cupid(Robert Morse) and the gods of love, and Olympus have secrets and betrayal and ever going ups and downs. Really a fairy tale message of finding love in a strange way makes you happy.

Overall an okay episode, but far from the series best.
