Every so often, the popular TV adventure series The Equalizer expanded from one hour to two. One such "extended" episode was the 1988 installment "Memories of Manon". Edward Woodward stars as Robert McCall, ex-spy turned do-gooder who is known to friend and foe alike as "The Equalizer" because of his tireless efforts in the cause of fair play. This time around, McCall is targeted for liquidation by Anthony Zerbe, who has a grudge against the former espionage agent. Stuck in the middle is Melissa Anderson, cast as the daughter that McCall never knew he had.
