Storyline

John Forbes own a used car lot and business has been very slow. He only has one employee, whom he calls Dad, and has always assured him that no matter what, he will always take care of him. John's real problem is his extravagant wife who has just told him that she will be going on an expensive trip. When the opportunity presents itself, he takes care of the matter in a decisive way and with Dad's assistance, covers up his deeds. As the police bear down on him, John must determine who he will take care of first. Written by garykmcd

The Old Switcheroo!
8 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this episode. So many of the shows in this series are based on fundamental greed. This one is really fun. I like the protagonist. He has suffered long because of a marriage made in hell. This has caused him to trust people to compensate for his unhappiness. We see him as a poor sucker who just can't catch a break. Finally he acts. Granted, it is the ultimate crime, but we know how far he was driven. The nice thing about this episode is that we are really kept in the dark all the way. We trust the "nice" people, but these are Hitchcock stories.

Incidentally, I've decided to ignore Hitchcock's little moments at the conclusion of the show where he tells us that the characters who managed to escape were ultimately punished. I wonder if this was a code thing or a literal commitment to "crime does not pay." If taken as gospel, it ruins many episodes.
