Episode 402 is the two-hundred eighth episode of the second season of The Edge of Night, and the four-hundred second episode overall.
As Mike prepared to visit Willard Benner in the State Pen, Hester asked Mike to do what he could to get Martin sprung. Phillips told Ollie that he's going to attend a fund-raising rally at the Community Center and hopes to get Mrs. Katherine Guthrie to announce Peter Dalton's candidacy. Later, Phillips visited Katherine Guthrie and gave her a substantial check. When Phillips started his pitch for Dalton, Mrs. Guthrie handed him back the check saying that she wouldn't accept the money if it was contingent upon her support of Dalton. Phillips acted offended and informed her that he's disturbed by a growing wave of crime in Monticello and feels that it's a result of inadequate law enforcement from Thompson's office. Furthermore, if Mrs. Guthrie could find a better candidate, he'd be willing to support that man. Mrs. Guthrie agreed to call an executive meeting to discuss Phillips' ideas.
