Synopsis Edit

RELATIONSHIPS ARE DRIFTING APART – On Halloween, Kelly and Matt come into conflict when Matt tries to get one of his clients a more lenient life-imprisonment term, while at the same time, Kelly has just received a letter from Joe Patch's parents asking for forgiveness for the torment that their son has caused her. Meanwhile, Steve's new fatherly, play-it-safe personality clashes with Janet's desire to hold onto a youthful rebelliousness as she is given the opportunity to perform again in her old college band. And things go awry when Noah and Gina secretly attempt to turn the After Dark into a late night men's club.


Joe Patch's parents visit Kelly and ask for her forgiveness. Matt tries to save a convicted rapist and murderer from the death penalty. Kelly is initially supportive, but changes her mind after hearing a description of the man's crimes. A meeting with the client's brother prompts Kelly to realize the anguish experienced by the families of criminals; she forgives Mr. and Mrs. Patch. She strongly objects when Matt appeals the judge's ruling against his client, and decides to stop seeing him for the time being. Donna wanders into the After Dark late at night and discovers the strip club.

Gina recognizes David's father as one of the customers. She sneaks him out the back door when the police raid the club. Noah and Donna are among those arrested, as the cops mistake Donna for a prostitute. Dylan realizes that Gina was involved. She promises to stop lying to him, then immediately blackmails Mel. Dylan and Donna question David's on-air antics when he costs a listener his girlfriend. David eventually reunites the couple and decides to change his ways. Janet's college friends ask her to play bass in their band, which is performing at the After Dark's Halloween party. Although Steve stays home and organizes a haunted house for neighborhood kids, he eventually shows up at the club to support Janet.
