"This is the way a marriage should end"
31 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A couple bickering over breakfast is interrupted by a gun-toting killer on the lam (he rings the bell). They disrupt his plans by the mere fact that neither cares if the other one dies.

The acting trio isn't much. Compare this intruder to the menacing one played by John Cassevetes in Season 1. For his part, the husband reminds me of Phil Hartman in one of his comic roles. There are some nice period details ("my wife doesn't drive"), but the whole thing rings of contrivance. The husband in particular acts as though this sort of thing happens to him quite often. Even worse, the ending is out of sorts for the show.
