'HOME IS FOR THE HEALING'
Original Airdate: January 31, 1980
Gary and Val get a late night call from Miss Ellie. Lucy has found out about them getting remarried, and is not happy she was not included in the celebration. Val decides she must go to Dallas to see Lucy.
Gary picks up his wife and daughter at the airport. Things do not work out in Knots Landing. Val has dreams of the three of them being a happy family. Lucy wants to party. Gary resents Lucy throwing her money around, buying things they cannot afford. Gary and Lucy clash throughout her visit.
Though the Family is headed for the Aquarium, Lucy ditches Val and Gary and heads over to the Ward's for a party. Lucy ends up staying out all night worrying Val and angering Gary.
While waiting to leave for the airport, Lucy meets Laura Avery. Laura tells Lucy how wonderful it is that Gary and Val are together, despite everything that was keeping them apart. Lucy begins to feel guilty about taking her mother so far from her father.
Lucy, Gary and Val come to terms with what has happened and what is best for them all. Lucy returns to Dallas, never to return to Knots Landing. Gary and Val do return to Dallas to see Lucy from time to time, most notably for her wedding to Mitch Cooper. Lucy will always try to find the love, the love she did not get from her parents, and Gary and Val, the way they parented Lucy will haunt them always.
