As a result of several changes in his TV series' production staff, the brilliant, highly principled Boston private eye Spenser (Robert Urich) is short one girl friend as Spenser launches its second season. It was decided to write out the character of guidance counselor Susan Silverman, played by Barbara Stock; by way of explaining her absence, Susan left Boston for California, reluctant to continue her relationship with Spenser for fear that he'd be killed at any moment. In the season opener, Carolyn McCormick is introduced in the role of assistant DA Rita Fiori, whose initial relationship with Spenser is adversarial; in fact,when first we see her, she is doggedly prosecuting our hero on a blackmail charge. Eventually, Rita realizes that Spenser is one of the "good guys", and before long a romance has blossomed. Episodes this season include a brace of stories in which Spenser's grim, muscular street contact Hawk (Avery Brooks finds himself in hot water, first when he is framed for carrying a concealed weapon in a backwater town, and second when he is suspected of shooting down Spenser's police lieutenant friend Martin Quirk (Richard Jaeckel). In other episodes, Spenser is stuck between a rock and a hard place when he must either clear a notorious pimp of murder or let him take the fall for the real killer, whose motive for murder was a surprising noble one; our hero nearly loses the use of his right arm when he takes a bullet meant for a politician; and, as he has so often done in the past, Spenser takes time to put a few misguided youths on the right path. Guest stars this season include such familiar film and TV faces as Charles Kimbrough, Ed O'Neill, Samuel L. Jackson, John Cullum, Rob Morrow, Jamey Sheridan, Ruby Dee, Larry Fishburne, David Straitharn, Tony Shalhoub and David Hyde-Pierce. ~ Hal Erickson
