This is the fourth directing credit for Line Producer Frank Waldeck, whose previous credits include last season’s “Father of the Bride”. The episode was written by Co-Executive Producers Melissa R Byer and Treena Hancock. The writing partners have three previous credits, most recently “The Two Mrs Grissoms” during season eleven.
