This is one of the better episodes of Season 4 and has some of Linc's most moving scenes.

Linc and Todd are working for a young but quite successful businessman (James Coburn) who has a blonde sister (Barbara Mattes) that is quite upset with him. Linc pulls the sister from the water after her attention seeking dive and commences to try and save the damsel from her brother's domineering influence.

While this series is replete with troubled (albeit beautiful) females to the point where it became somewhat ridiculous, viewed in isolation this episode is quite well done as it delves into various weaknesses of the human condition.

A sister who talks of killing her brother, a man who can't forgive his father for old sins, a brother confused by his sister's mind games, that same sister picking up a strange man (with a bad comb-over no less) in a bar, was rather heavy material for American episodic TV in the early 60s. It is to this show's credit that here it is done with both subtlety and clarity.
