Well done episode with a shocking twist that proves changing gender shows the will and way to inherit a fortune!
11 May 2008 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This episode one "Fatal Caper" from season 7(and the last season) of the crypt was pretty well done as it's paced out well with intrigue and suspense drama that leads up to a shocking twist of greed and power at the end. Set internationally in London, England at a mansion of a family the tale involves the inheritance will of a nobleman and his three sons, two who are unworthy and the other has disappeared or has he? Anyway enter the sly and slick sexy Natasha Richardson as a woman who has plans and advises the men down a path of malevolent moves and turns. One by one the characters fall and the twist in the end is a big shock as a revealing of gender identity shows that people will do anything or everything to inherit wealth and become more greedy! Well crafted and done by Bob Hoskins who also has a small part plus Natasha Richardson adds spice and warms up the episode with her sexy and cold turn. Overall this was one of the better last season episodes of tales.
