In A Walton Thanksgiving Reunion, Richard Thomas brings his city-girl ladyfriend Kate McNeil up to Waltons' Mountain to meet his family for the first time. However, when President Kennedy gets assassinated, newsman John-Boy must leave to do a televised report, leaving Janet stranded with his quaint family.
Another interesting note is that Mary Beth McDonough, who plays Erin Walton, also appeared in an episode of Kate McNeil's cop show Bodies of Evidence earlier in 1993.
