The Waltons: The Obsession

Wanting to pass her nursing exams in order to spend more time with Curt, Mary Ellen persuades David to give her some “pep pills” to help her stay awake long enough to study. However, she soon becomes addicted to them and eventually has an accident, prompting her to ask for help to overcome the addiction. When she passes the exam to become a registered nurse, Curt arrives at her graduation ceremony to surprise her. Meanwhile, tiring of life on the mountain, Yancy’s wife turns to Elizabeth for help in filing a divorce. Elsewhere, Jason sets up a swing for Melissa to play on at Daisy’s home.
