The foundation upon which the WB's 7th Heaven is built consists of Eric Camden (Stephen Collins), pastor of Glen Oak Community Church, and Eric's loving and supportive wife, Annie (Catherine Hicks). That said, an entertainingly inordinate amount of time is spent on the Camdens' five children (ranging in age from 5 to 16) during the series' first season. Oldest son Matt (Barry Watson) has, like most of his fellow high schoolers, developed a healthy interest in girls and a mile-wide streak of independence; oldest daughter Mary (Jessica Biel) is a loose-limbed "jock"; second daughter Lucy (Beverley Mitchell) is the inquisitive intellectual of the bunch; second son Simon (David Gallagher) has the happy, carefree spirit common to most ten-year-olds; and youngest girl, Ruthie (Mackenzie Rosman), is sweet but precocious. Over the course of season one's 22 episodes, Matt develops a relationship with a deaf girl named Heather (Andrea Ferrell); Mary cultivates a friendship with Wilson West (Andrew Keegan), a nerdy teen who has had the misfortune of fathering a children out of wedlock; and Lucy suffers the first pangs of puppy love as she moons over classmate Jimmy Moon (Matthew Linville). Among the more serious and consequential complications facing the Camden brood are the impending death of Annie's mother, Eric's counseling of a youthful drug addict, a hidden drinking problem in the family, the decision by Eric's elderly parents to adopt a ten-year-old boy, and, at the tail end of season one, a traffic accident that endangers the life of Mary Camden.
