"Columbo" Double Shock (TV Episode 1973) - Plot Summary Poster

(TV Series)


Plot Summary

  • Flamboyant television chef Dexter Paris and his twin brother, Norman, a conservative banker, are supposedly not talking to one another. But both disapprove of their wealthy uncle Clifford's impending marriage to a young woman. One of them enters Clifford's bathroom and drops an electric mixer with a frayed power cable into Clifford's bath water. Clifford is electrocuted, and the murderer takes Clifford's body to an exercise room to make it appear that Clifford died of a coronary. But Lieutenant Columbo, the infallible, cunning detective in a rumpled raincoat, suspects foul play and believes that the Paris twins, both heirs to their uncle's estate provided he didn't marry, had a motive for murder. But which one did the deed? Columbo pursues both with incessant questions as he tries to determine which of the two brothers killed their uncle Clifford.

  • The smarmy TV chef, Dexter Paris, has a rich uncle who is about to marry a woman young enough to be his granddaughter. The uncle's nephew visits him while he takes a bath, plugs in an egg beater and throws it into the tub, electrocuting the old man. But when the young fiancée and a trusted housekeeper discover the body, it's clothed in a sweatsuit and slumped over an exercise bike. It looks as if he had had a heart attack while riding it. But our rumpled Lt. Columbo is on the case and notices a few things that don't add up. Then he meets Dexter's identical twin brother, Norman Paris, a rigidly proper banker. This alerts Columbo to the possibility that what is seen cannot necessarily be believed.
