Bracken's World s02e09
Titre original : Anonymous Star
Stage and screen actress Maggie Morgan agrees to work on a tv series ""Crisis Clinic."" She torments the cast and crew with her temperamental outbursts, so Bracken recruits Kevin to get the series back on track. Things go relatively well until a cast party when Kevin offers Maggie a glass of vodka. Unwilling to admit that she is an alcoholic, Maggie accepts the drink, then fails to show up the next morning on the set because she has fallen off the wagon. The basis for her alcoholism seems to be the loss of the custody of her young son in a recent divorce. The only person who can reach Maggie is Jyl Symington, a former actress and Alcoholic Anonymous pal. Kevin and John recruit Jyl to sober Maggie up; Jyl threatens Maggie that she too will return to alcohol if Maggie doesn't sober up. Maggie is touched by Jyl's sincerity and returns to the set, sober and ready to work. The series is an ultimate success and Maggie is once again a sought after actress.
