    The 1989 season was played slightly out of order. The previous season ended with a cliffhanger. However, 'Carroll OConnor, who also served as executive producer, wanted to begin the next season with the episode in which Althea Tibbs is raped because he felt that that particular episode had a strong message and that it should be the season opener.
