    I've heard the same thing for a very long time, but I have not seen any proof of this. The episode is supposedly between Jessica and Benson and they discuss who killed Peter and the fact that everyone is a suspect. From what I remember reading about it (here and other places) it is supposed to take place shortly after Sheriff Tinkler leaves the families just after Peter's funeral. I can't say for sure that it doesn't exist, but so far I have not seen any hard evidence that it does.

    I do know that the first and third recap (clip shows) were released on VHS a very long time ago. The second one was available on the trading circuit. I have it and it is a very good off the air recording. I believe that it is a 2nd generation VHS copy. When I constructed my complete version of the show, I included all three recap shows in their proper place.

    I found promos for it on youtube. December 20, 1977. Hour long. It may have just been a repeat of the first two episodes.

    Ok, that promo does include a brief scene between Jessica and Benson that does not appear in any other episode. It's at the very beginning of the promo. Jessica is wearing the outfit that she is later wearing in the episode that takes place after Sheriff Tinkler leaves and her and Chester discuss Jessica and Peter's affair while getting ready for bed. So, maybe that recap episode does indeed exist. If so, I would love to get my hands on it to include it in my complete version of the series. So, this is the first hard evidence that I've seen to prove this mini recap show exists.
