Best one yet
19 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was simply a great segment, which had the rare tinge of horror, and many familiar faces which made this my favorite episode of this fine series. The impressive cast included Mary Ann Mobley(wife of star Gary Collins), Henry Silva, Will Geer(makes his 2nd and final appearance as Rev. Jordan), and wacky Jeanette Nolan, although she only had a few moments on screen. The premise was interesting from the very beginning, just as soon as Lisa(Mobley)has a vision of her dead husband returning to haunt her; it turns out that he fell in a well accidentally after arguing with her. It takes Dr. Rhodes to figure out the dead man has rope burns on both of his hands during another vision, and he deduces that he was hanging on a rope before he fell, but someone else knocked him off the rope and murdered him. Without giving the ending away, I'm certain you'll figure out who murdered Lisa's husband, and all because of money and greed, as usual. It seems most episodes have a time when things get a tad boring, but not this fine segment, as every scene was interesting, added with fine acting performances.
