The first episode of S7 had Shirley marry an Army corpsman she'd been dating. They hadn't decided on a real actor to take the part (the character would be away for most of the time) so the groom was bandaged from head to toe due to some allergy issue. Yes, it was quite a lame episode...
Cindy Williams only did one more episode that season since she and the producers went into litigation due to her pregnancy. She wanted time off and didn't accept any of the accommodations that were offered.
