Sounds familiar to me

Well, this episode could have been in any drama series, but not in an Alfred Hitchcock series episode, because the twist ending is not really here. But the basic line looks like an AH's movie: SPELLBOUND. Here the fantastic Donna Reed plays a wife suspected to have poisoned her husband's first wife, so that she can eventually replaces her in her husband's heart. So the nearly whole scheme is a court room drama. But even if there is not a twist ending, abrupt by all means, the ending is although surprising, because (SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS) it appears that it is the husband who killed his first wife to get the money from her death; she was very wealthy before marrying him. And it appears too that he let his second wife be accused of the murder. That's the twist ending, but not as abrupt as it could have been in a AH PRESENTS or HOUR series. The analogy with SPELLBOUND, of which I talked just above, is because in this tale it is question of a woman who dreams, have nightmares, and needs a shrink because of this - like Ingrind Bergman in the AH's film.
