One of my favourite of the whole series

Whaow!!! I love this episode where a female gang leader stops at nothing to plan the escape of her prisoner husband from the state penitentiary. The female character is terrific, harder than the males. I love this. This actress whose I don't know the name is unforgettable, as the evil female, but although in deep love for her man. It changes. William Conrad made this episode, where there is much suspense. Tense, sharp, thrilling at the most. Probably the best of the whole series. I search those kind of rare gems.

I will Watch it again and again. I won't get bored. I know that.

A real must see.
