  • Episode Description
  • At the funeral of a thoroughly unpleasant woman, a mysterious older man appears and claims to be...her long-lost son! Needless to say, this complicates the matter of inheritance--and there's a fair amount of money at stake. Meanwhile, Sergeant Wield gets a phone call from a young man who knows a little too much about Wield's "friend," Maurice Eaton. As it turns out, however, this mysterious (and possibly criminal?) young man has something to do with that family feud as well...moreless

    • This is one of those episodes that does little to "spoil" the novel. While Wield's angst over coming out and his relationship with the young interloper--who is even younger in the novel--adheres to Hill's original, the rest of his half of the plot has been almost totally revamped for the screen. The story behind the Hubie family and the mysterious son, meanwhile, has almost no relationship to the novel whatsoever.
