Unfortunately, the IMDb summary gives away the whole plot for this gripping episode. An elderly cabinet maker (Dekker) married to a shrewish wife (Van Fleet) ha amassed a decent savings and intends to leave it to his loving niece, who lives with the couple and works for them. The wife decides to do in her husband for the money and blame his death on a young worker (Mineo). Great cast, especially Van Fleet as the nutty wife and Mineo as the young worker. Leonard Nimoy plays a detective. It's always funny to see Nimoy in a suit when we are so used to seeing him in his pointy ears and Starfleet garb. Van Fleet gets to scream and pop her eyes and do everything but spit as the psychotic wife. Definitely worth a watch. I wouldn't be surprised if someone told me this started out as a play. It has that kind of feel to it.
