For no real good explained reason Ted brings back "Bad Seed" Vanessa, who again takes Vicki's place, locks Vicki in her/its(?) cabinet and joins the family to Hollywood, where Ted must repair a movie's robot while Vanessa mugs into a screen test on the sly.
With the wrap of the series finale in sight, an apt display of a skeleton at the close. Throwing in Vanessa was largely a thank-you tidbit for her fans, and for all the unanticipated sci-fi and collegian ones who gave the pioneering show a very good run in the face of incredible odds and competition. Vanessa's dominating the near last Small Wonder episode was more like a cruel tease of what could've been. Notable is Danny Wells' accurate portrayal of series creator Howard Leeds (H.L.).
