Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the first half of Growing Pains' two-part series finale (originally telecast as a single hour-long episode), the Seaver family is faced with a major uprooting when Maggie (Joanna Kerns) is offered a job in Washington, DC, as media relations director for a US Senator. While Maggie and Jason (Alan Thicke) look forward to leaving Long Island behind, Ben (Jeremy Miller) and Carol (Tracey Gold) are dead set against the move. As for Mike (Kirk Cameron), his reaction is, if not entirely unexpected, certainly characteristic! This episode was originally seen on the same evening that two other popular ABC series, MacGyver and Who's the Boss, ended their lengthy runs.
