Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Good Times moved from Wednesday to Tuesday evening for the series' fourth-season opener, the first episode of a two-part story. The Evans family is elated to find out that patriarch James Evans has landed a great new job in Mississippi. Preparing to move from Chicago, the family is feted at a going-away party held by Willona Woods (Ja'net DuBois), the best friend of James' wife, Florida (Esther Rolle). But the festivities come to a sudden and tragic halt when the Evanses receive the worst news imaginable.
