In a jealous rage, a piano player at a run-down dive murders a beautiful young woman. Although he at first seems to have covered his tracks well enough, he soon discovers that, no matter how hard he tries, he cannot get the woman's blood off his hands. Written by
"One Step Beyond" always claimed to be based on real cases involving the supernatural. I always took this with a grain of salt and enjoyed the shows anyways. However, this one was hard to ignore because the story idea was so patently ridiculous.
Robert Loggia plays Tom Grant--a brooding piano player in a dive. When he sees his ex-girlfriend about to go out with a customer, something snaps and he kills her. While he did not get cut during this stabbing, he keeps seeing blood all over his hands--especially when he washes them. This drives him batty and eventually he turns himself in to the police.
This is a very heavy-handed episode. Loggia is a fine actor but here he seems ridiculous and fake. Fortunately, this didn't appear to harm his career and I'm assuming producers didn't see this episode--if they had, his film career might have ground to a halt!
