  • My favorite episode of the series.

    This one has it all--suspense, action, humor, great script, fine acting, and a surprise ending which you will not see coming. Small wonder it's my all-time favorite episode and it borrows elements of Arsenic and Old Lace and Psycho to boot.

    Another things that makes this one so great is that we get to see varying types of villainy. We have the in your face, coke snorting villainy of "Judge" Foley, the crafty and scheming villainy of Valentine Ferrar, and the totally unexpected and deadly villainy of Mrs. Wagnahl. Evil does not always come in the form of a hood wearing a pin-striped suit and carrying a rod in his shoulder holster. This is proven in the case of Mrs. Wagnahl who appears to be an eccentric but basically harmless woman throughout the episode but in reality is something far more deadlier.
