**SPOILERS** Pretty straightforward pay-or-die extortion scheme with a twist; which is: the same receiver as a garage door opener, and using the same signal broadcast device. The idea is that the bomb guys couldn't figure it out. Bullfeathers. OF COURSE they could figure it out. Most of the bomb squad or explosives guys were and are exactly the same kind of guys that the bombers are, it's just that the good guys happen to be GOOD GUYS.

Paul Genge, and Frank DeKova are two veteran actors who play bad guys at the top level. The action in this episode depends on an ex-cellmate, an uncontrollable jealousy, and basic ruthlessness. Spencer figures out how, he and Gil figure out who; the rest is history (obviously). Good acting, good plot, bombs were about as good as they could be, given the rules and all.

Jean Allison plays the wife of the guy who starts it all, and the bruises she wears look pretty realistic. Her Huz is the nut, and it is prophetic indeed that the plot proceeds the way it does. On two levels terrorism for profit, and terrorism for insanity's sake. Combine those ingredients with violent possessiveness, and you've got problems we still face today.
