About Dr. BlakeEdit
When Penny Gordon, a girl who lives in the Gilbert Avenue Apartment Projects where Willona and Evanses reside, is discovered to be a victim of child abuse by her mother Lenela (Chip Fields), Willona, along with the Evanses, seeks to try to get help for her, by taking her to a nearby hospital to get treated for bruises on her back and an iron burn on her arm.
The doctor who treated her, Dr. Blake and Willona then clash over the issue as in how to determine on how Penny got bruised; was it an accident, or did, as Willona and the Evanses believe, that her mother Lenela Gordon (Chip Fields) abused her. Anyhow, later Dr. Blake, showing remorse for his handling of Penny's case, has a change of heart, asking Willona for his attitude towards her in the ER, and informs her the he called the police about the matter, who referred the case over to Mrs. Carpenter, who works with the Illinois State Dept. of Child and Families Services.
