After meeting with a client in an old nightclub, David and Maddie learn about a murder that took place there: the singer and a cornet player fell in love and killed her husband. They went to the chair saying the other one did it. David and Maddie discuss the murder: David thinks the woman did it, Maddie thinks the guy did; they wind up insulting each other. At home they each have a dream (in black and white) recapping what happened in 1946. Maddie dreams of the singer and her husband who've remained friends though the fire has gone out of their relationship; the cornet player arrives and seduces her, convincing her to get rid of the husband. He kills him, making it look like an accident, but then tells the cops she did it. David's version has the new cornet player coming to the club just wanting to play; she has a bad marriage and he was her way out; she seduces him, gets him to kill her husband, then sends him off to fry.
