Excellent.
29 December 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Phyllis Thaxter plays Mary Summers. Mrs. Summers is a rather hysterical lady who always is worried about impending doom. And, since her husband is going away on a business trip, she's even more fearful than usual. Oddly, when an escaped mental patient (George Grizzard) breaks in, she is oddly relaxed around him and even sees him as a kindred spirit of sorts. She talks to him lovingly and instead of running or calling the police, she talks to him about how difficult it is being afraid. And, when attendants from the hospital arrive at Mary's house looking for the escapee, she lies to protect him. What gives?!

This is a very good episode of the series due to a wonderful twist ending. All around, the series was firing on all four cylinders here--well written, directed and acted.
