An elderly man, whose days are numbered due to heart problems, contacts Gunn. The old man was almost killed the night before by something that was made to look like an accident. He shows Gunn a threatening note from his nephew who was just released from jail and has a vendetta of sorts against his uncle (the elderly man).
While asking questions about the nephew (who is a guitar player) at Mother's, Pete gets a call from the man who tells him "I am going to shoot the old man whether you try to stop me or else...and I'm then going to shoot myself."
Gunn rushes over the old man's house, hears shots, runs in and sees the old man dead. Suspects include not only the nephew but the three people who lived in the house: the male secretary, the nurse and the butler.
The ending scene has perhaps the most intense fight between Gunn and an adversary than was seen all season. A dramatic and fitting ending to the first season, at least the 32 episodes available on DVD. The last six episodes of season one were not included, for some, reason on Vols 1 and 2.
