Empire: A House in Order

News of her fatal illness inspires Lucia (Anne Seymour) to establish a better relationship between son Tal (Ryan O'Neal) and foreman Redigo (Richard Egan).

Lucia Garret, having learned that she will die soon of an incurable disease, tests her son and heir to determine the disposition of her estate.

It's Anne Seymour's turn to leave the cast of EMPIRE, and she is eased off by a fatal illness. But before she goes to that big round-up in the sky, she wants to be sure her son Tal (Ryan O'Neal) has become a man. Fortunately, a big freeze is on the way, so she convinces Redigo (Richard Egan) to let Tal handle the cattle during the freeze so she can see how he acts and reacts. Tal makes some mistakes, and Redigo covers them up, and the boy is also tempted by a Bolivian business deal, but he's a Garret, after all, and the whole thing ends happily-sadly.
