    An episode greatly hampered by a very lame climax indeed. Sometimes on this show you dread seeing Hitch's face again at the end, because you know that that means that once more the point of the thing has been so subtle as to have eluded your notice. Unless of course the true identity of Mrs Rudel was supposed to be something to make your head spin, and I doubt that too many found that at all boggling. I must say I found that the "family tradition" aspect of the matter weakened it, since it then becomes more a stunt than a matter of revenge. Btw am I the only one who finds the name Betsy von Furstenberg a bit on the silly side? I rather doubt it.
