Likely to kill again
28 June 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Cec Linder psychologist and chess player is in a game with Chief Ironside and beats him which causes the ever grumpy chief a little anxiety. But then he drops on the chief that one of the many modern art paintings and sculpture he has from his patients is that of a homicidal individual likely to kill again.

That tease leaves Raymond Burr dangling, but the next day when Linder winds up dead it becomes a case for his personal team. Three likely patients emerge as suspects. Coleen Gray grieving mother, anti-social Nicholas Colosanto, and just plain wacky Sue Ane Langdon.

To boil it all down, one of them winds up dead, and another helps catch the real killer.

Not one of the better Ironside episodes, damn it if the man suspected something Linder should have come out and said something.
