Goodbye to Yesterday, Part 2

Metcalf's assistant, his brother Dave (Michael Larrain), jealously blocks the efforts of the outside lawmen. Josh Williams (Murray MacLeod) and Freda (Stephanie Shayne) blame themselves for jeopardizing the child's life, since their romantic involvement accounts for her having been alone. Aware that FBI agent Torrence (George Murdock) has joined Ironside's staff and the local sheriff in tracking him, Ames panics. He contacts Barbara, threatening the child's life if she does not secretly deliver the ransom money. Barbara's attempt to do so results in a tragic series of mishaps. For Chief Ironside, a man of honor, his devotion to Barbara and his determination to recover the child without harming her marriage proves an almost insurmountable task, even with the aid of Mark Sanger, Eve Whitfield and Det. Sgt. Ed Brown (series stars Don Mitchell, Barbara Anderson and Don Galloway). Written by Sy Salkowitz, directed by Barry Shear.
