A jealous barber argues with his wife about her watching his customer after he walks out his door. He mentions that the man's skin is too tight for his age, and notes scars behind his ears. The wife figures out that the customer is a criminal who has had plastic surgery, and decides to blackmail him so she can use the money to leave her husband. Things don't necessarily go as planned, and it's up to Mr. and Mrs. North to figure out what REALLY happened. Barbara Britton and Richard Denning are good, as usual, but as usual with this series there's always at least one sub-par actor. This time it's Peggy Knudsen as Elsie Dargon, mugging as she watches the aforementioned customer leave. That said, this is better than most episodes in the series, and ends with a decent twist.
