Sea Bride – Episode 30

Sea Bride was the twenty first episode of Quantum Leap’s second season to air, with Sam hoping to prevent a wedding taking place on a cruise ship. In this episode Gerry and Iain discuss charming villains.

Sam leaps into Phillip, a sailor who has returned from being stranded in Bora Bora for a number of years keen to prevent his ex-wife Catherine (Beverly Leech) marrying Vinny ‘the Viper’ Loggia (James Harper) during a cruise on board the Queen Mary.

Despite a strong warning from his former father-in-law Weathers (JG Hertzler) to stay clear of the ceremony, Sam works with Catherine’s young sister Jenny (Juliet Sorci) to try and persuade his former bride that she’s making a terrible mistake.

Sea Bride was directed by Joe Napolitano, the second of his twelve directorial credits on the show. The script was by Deborah Pratt, her seventh of twenty Quantum Leap writing credits.

In this episode Gerry and Iain considered whether two wrongs make a right.
