"Maggie's Curse" strikes again! Rick Pederson (Grant Goodeve), latest boyfriend of the luckless Maggie O'Connell (Janine Turner), suffers a bizarre but peculiarly amusing death when he is hit by a falling satellite (a Comsat 4, in case you're interested). The townsfolk respond by treating Maggie like a leper, and Joel (Rob Morrow) must come to her rescue. Meanwhile, Maurice (John Corbett) considers canceling a lucrative real-estate deal because he disapproves of the lifestyle of the couple he's selling to: a pair of gay men named Ron (Doug Ballard) and Erick (Don R. McManus), who turn out to have much more in common with macho Maurice than he is willing to acknowledge. And Shelly (Cynthia Geary) is none too pleased when Holling (John Cullum) is reunited with an old female acquaintace. This was the final episode of Northern Exposure's second season.
