Visions: Season 3, Episode 5

Blackout (Nov 13, 1978)

TV EpisodeDrama
This drama explores the relationships and shared history among three characters: Dr. Robert Lewis; his daughter, Clare; and his second wife, Eva. At the outset of the play, stodgy Dr. Lewis has brought Eva to a monthly family dinner at his bohemian daughter's Soho loft. The doctor quietly disapproves of the minimalist decor, but he manages to keep most of his feelings to himself throughout the early stages of the visit. Nevertheless, an ominous tension is palpable. In the middle of the meal, a citywide blackout occurs, compelling all three to look back on painful events in their lives during a similar blackout several years earlier. Each character's perspective is revealed in flashbacks, which are interspersed with events from the present. At the time of the previous blackout, Clare's mother -- and Dr. Lewis's first wife -- Sarah is dying of breast cancer, and Eva's marriage to her first husband is ending, in part because of her burgeoning affair with Robert. During the present blackout, the effects of a series of infidelities become painfully clear as the characters reexamine the connections that bind them together.
