Ethan feared to lose his university position due to his broken-off engagement with the provost's daughter, but it's Masters who reports him 'incompetent' as revenge for his wife's clandestine, however successful fertility treatment. William is shocked even worse when Vurginia's loyalty is not to him and the scientific protocol but to a pregnant voluntary test subject, betraying confidential data to her and the presumed father, Dr. Austin Langham, who desperately needs the protection of the contractual anonymity guarantee. Furthermore, she teams up with research funds rival DePaul. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Dr. Langham is handed a piece of paper with a local phone number printed on it. The phone number begins with an area code in parentheses followed by seven digits. A phone number in the late 1950s would have two letters (the exchange) followed by five numbers. As late as 1969, Americans were still learning how to convert to seven-digit dialing. Also, no area code was necessary to be given out since area codes generally encompassed an entire state's area. See more »

Dire circumstances
16 November 2016 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

The staff of Washington University is charged up during a hydrogen bomb drill, and 'Fallout' is about as appropriate a name as they come, given everyone's personal crises. Ethan faces retribution for his involvement in Lilly's pregnancy, as well as dumping Scully's daughter; Margaret suffers the shocking realization of her husband's closeted sexuality; a test subject shows up pregnant, leaving Virginia to clean up the mess . . .

And Bill plays a surprisingly villainous role in almost all of these interactions. The situation between himself and Virginia comes to a head and neither character finds happiness.

Although, Lillian is suddenly a more sympathetic character (thanks to Virginia), so there's hope.
