When Leonard (guest star Graham
Greene) carves a totem pole for the Whirlwind family, a minuscule fish crest
causes major friction among the Native American Bear and Raven clans. The argument
is over whether an ancestor of one family stole money from an ancestor of the
other family to start a salmon cannery. The fracas is settled when Leonard carves
a new pole without the fish crest and the totem-raising celebration resumes.
Meanwhile, Shelly is experiencing lifelike hallucinations of dancers, frolicking into her life.
Leonard explains that these are caused by her subconscious desire for a life
parmer. Surprisingly, when Shelly asks Holling to
marry her in order to stop the visions, he agrees. While Shelly is concerned
with getting rid of her trippy visions, Holling gets into the spirit of the
nuptials and they are finally wed.
On a jealous note, Joel bristles at Maggie and Mike's (guest star Anthony Edwards)
displays of intimacy and happiness. He struggles to define what his and Maggie's
relationship has been and whether or not they ever had a "thing" between them.
