Revenge is Not Always Sweet!, 9 October 2008
Author: Hitchcoc from United States

A gangster has been badly injured and is being cared for in a monastery. While there, a young man played by Mark Damon comes, determined to get back some money that was taken from him. He also blames the man for the death of his father, who died, ashamed of his son. There is a third party, a small time crook. Much of the story reveals that the young man has roots in the Catholic church and the Abbott tries to convince him that what he is doing is wrong. Another monk says, "If you look into the face of a man you have killed, you will never be the same again." The young man decides to depart after observing vespers and having a bit of his youth tug at him. Unfortunately, there is a third man after the money, and things get complicated. The weakest thing in the episode is a quick decision made by police officer, Claude Akins. Just a bit too convenient. That aside, it works pretty well.
