Finding she is a pariah in Amity, Tod and Buz offer help in carrying out her unusual mission.Written by
"Welcome to Amity" is the first of three appearances in the series by a solid guest star, Susan Oliver. Oliver was also hired to play the female lead in the first show Martin Milner appeared in without George Maharis - "Between Hello and Goodbye," near the end of season two. Ironically, Oliver also played the female lead when Route 66 introduced Glenn Corbett as the permanent series' co-star, in the episode "Fifty Miles from Home." The most satisfying aspect of "Welcome to Amity" is it provides one of the best mysteries in the series. Oliver's stoicism and the anger of the townspeople of Amity is a genuine puzzle; her acting is so good that Tod and Buz are onscreen for just a handful of minutes in the early going as the mystery deepens. This is, without question, one of the 10 best episodes in the series, an episode to look forward to.
