A Portrait of Elizabeth
AIRED:
Jim agrees to work for Beth’s latest gentleman friend Dave Delaraux, by investigating the possible disappearance of some checks in the Comptrollers office. Jim finds them present and reports to Dave, whose attitude continues to annoy Jim. Jim then has to take Beth to a concert, which is boring. Dave has dinner with Karen Silver, but it is interrupted by her ex-husband Mickey. After Dave beats Mickey in a fight Mickey wants revenge. He follows Dave to Jim’s trailer, where Dave uses the hidden key to break in and finds Jim’s gun. When Mickey has his bodyguard Rod Fitzpatrick storm in Dave shoots them both. Jim returns from the concert and finds the dead men and reports it to the police. Lieutenant Diehl is desperate to charge Jim with the murder, but cannot make a connection between them. Just as it looks like Jim is to go free, Federal Agent Shore arrests Jim for federal banking crimes and murder and takes Jim to a quite place to question him. Jim learns that Rod Fitzpatrick was actually Arnold Adams and that he and Dave Delaroux have ripped off a large corporation for two million dollars.
