RILEY Recap & Spoiler
Episode Title: RILEY
Air Date: 2/3/22
Writer: Missy Haggins
Director: Mel Knickerbocker

Henry returns from his trip and goes to visit with Professor Beckett. Professor is busy with an experiment gone wrong. Henry tries to assist in the process but is very bored. Professor lets him go and Henry tracks down Gary, hoping he will be more receptive to his homecoming. Gary, however, is busy trying to track down the latest alien sighting. The new gadget Professor gave him detects some strange appearance in town. They end up running into a handsome young man, Riley, who is flirting with Darla. Darla greets Henry and is happy to see him but spends most of the introduction talking about her new friend, Riley, whom she had met a month ago. Gary also loves Riley and the two bombard him with attention. Henry is sad and ends up making up an excuse to leave. He returns to his apartment and finds lots of notices left for him during his absence, none very kind. Henry returns to Professor’s lab and as he assist Prof Beckett, he asks for advice on what to do when he feels underappreciated. Professor gives a serious talk about self-respect and confidence. Henry explains that he feels useless. Just then, a monster attack happens in Little Town. Henry sets out to assist but when he’s there, there is a crowd of spectators and news camera crew all interviewing Riley, who helped defeat the monster. Riley is mock embarrassed but obviously likes the attention. Darla gushes on about how Riley has filled in for Henry while he was away and is a true hero. The next day, Henry is jogging and Riley comes up behind. In a smarmy way, Riley competes with Henry. Every activity they come across, Riley is able to one-up Henry somehow. When another monster attacks the town, Riley and Henry battle to be the hero. In the end, Riley prevails. As a crowd gathers around Riley again, Henry disappears. He returns to his apartment and mails his communication device to Professor’s Lab and unplugs the phone. He has quit crime-fighting altogether. Gary and Darla talk, both worried having not heard from Henry in a matter of days and not being able to reach him by telephone. They knock on the door but there is no answer. Inside, Henry ignores them both, still angry about being ignored. Darla and Gary walk towards Professor’s Lab but before they get there, they see Riley get abducted by some space goons, now determined he is the new crime fighter in town. The two sprint to the Lab and ask Professor to contact Henry, right as the Professor is opening his mail. He notices the communication device that was mailed to him with a note attached – “I won’t need this anymore.” Darla and Gary explain that his phone is out of service and he’s not answering the door. The Professor takes the long trek to Henry’s apartment alone. Once there, he speaks through the door and tells Henry that he knows how important Henry is but more important than attention is safety. Henry mutters that Riley is good at doing it on his behalf. Professor explains the urgency in him coming over, that Riley has been kidnapped. Henry opens the door and Professor verifies, explaining that Riley may try to act tough, but in reality, he is not a trained crime-fighter like Henry. Henry sets out to rescue Riley. While Riley struggles in captivity, Henry uses his brain power to outsmart the guards and set him free. Riley admits that Henry is very intelligent, and Henry realizes what he possesses that Riley doesn’t—but doesn’t say it out loud. While they pass crowds on the way back, none aware that Henry had saved the day, Darla and Gary give him their love and support and Henry smiles for the first time since his return.

Until the show ends (which, hopefully, will be never).
