This episode could have been made for Alfred Hitchcock presents. Exciting, taut, tense story of a married but unfaithful wife - Ann Francis - who has to meet a lover one night, when she thinks her husband - John Dehner - will be away. But Dehner listens her wife calling her lover and then calls his own friend and asks him to "get rid" of a trespasser who prowls around his beach house, not far from his home. The night in question, Dehner decides to stay at home with her wife, who suddenly understands that her lover will wait for her at the beach house before falling in a trap. After a struggle with her husband, she kills him and calls her lover.
Her lover answers and tells her that she has not to be afraid of anything, because the husband's friend is no one else than himself. Dehner ignored that his wife's lover and "friend" were the very same person.
That's here Francis understands that she killed her husband only "for the birds".
A very ironic ending in the AH PRESENTS series tradition.
