This 1986 episode of "Matlock" is notable for giving the viewing public a sort of preview of "Jake and the Fatman", which premiered in 1987. Not only does it feature the entire main cast (Joe Penny, William Conrad, and Alan Campbell), but Conrad and Campbell play basically the same characters with different names. Conrad's character, James L. McShane, doesn't even vary much in name from J. L. McCabe, a.k.a. the Fatman. Penny's character, however, is rather different; a crime boss accused of doing his own dirty work for once. It is left to Matlock to remove all reasonable doubt from this shady character, which he does in characteristic fashion by revealing the real killer - but not in this episode, as it is the first of a two-part.
