    A lover and his married girlfriend want to get together but the woman's abusive husband poses a problem.

    When the woman tells her that her husband is being physically abusive, he goes to confront him with disastrous results. The lover, Gil, gets knocked on the head and when he comes to he sees husband dead. But who is the murderer?

    Excellent episode, the familiar lover with married husband/wife angle is all too familiar but here they've managed to make into an interesting murder mystery.

    The main character turns into a crime detective trying to solve the murder. This episodes uses voice over narration a lot to sketch out the main scene and Gil's own thoughts. It works very well since this is a crime detective type of story.

    The ending was pulled off well. It's not a predictable episode at all even by today's standards.
