The second season of the British sitcom Butterflies runs seven episodes, initially broadcast from October 29 through December 10 1979. In "Leaving," dissatisfied housewife Ria (Wendy Craig) again considers cheating on her dull hubby Ben (Geoffrey Palmer) when she has a chance encounter with her platonic male friend Leonard (Bruce Montague), while Ria's son Adam (Nicholas Parkhurst) runs away from home -- almost. In "Worrying," Ben experiences an epiphany after suffering what he thinks is a heart attack. Ria's argument with God in "A Dog's Life" is a sure sign that she is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. In "Keeping Fit," Adam and his brother Russell (Andrew Hall) take their practical joking too far, while Leonard becomes seriously ill. "An Attractive Visitor" is a woman named Susanna, who has an eye for Ben and the boys -- and a surprising revelation for Ria. And in "Lunch With Leonard," Ria once again contemplates leaving Ben for Leonard, but Leonard has some disturbing news. Season seven is rounded off with a brief special Christmas telecast, originally seen on December 22, 1979. ~ Hal Erickson
