Joel receives a "Dear John" letter from Elaine, who has decided to marry an older judge, and a concerned Ed enlists Maggie to help him deal with it.

Meanwhile, Holling buys a satellite dish for Shelly who "wants to see the world" and unknowingly creates a monster. Watching every obscure channel she can find, Shelly neglects Holling, her job, and sleep while she remains hypnotized in front of the TV screen. Finally, she confesses her obsession to Chris, the closest thing Cicely has to a priest, and seeks forgiveness.
