Just like the confusion between Tom Bosley, and 'David Doyle', so was the confusion between 'Beverly Garland', and Lois Nettleton. This episode is one of the rare times actors, who many confuse with others - due to their similar appearance, or names, appear together. See more »

Drama on High
5 September 2019 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

A highly dramatic episode. Each of the three leads-- Tolan, Nettleton, and Harvey-- gets a chance to emotionally shine. Garland's policewoman, of course, keeps a cool guiding head and a good thing too. (Am I mistaken or has Garland been somewhat glamorized, especially the eyebrows.) Plot-wise, nut-case Tolan hates his emotional dependency on women causing them and him terrible distress. He appears one of the more twisted characters in the series itself. Also, the climax amounts to a riveting slice of "what will he do".

All in all, I agree with reviewer paularoc: the boxed gun used to shoot Nettleton is quite a stretch. In fact, in my book, the whole episode appears more contrived than usual. Nonetheless, the compelling characters override plot difficulties while Rosenberg's direction, especially close-ups, remains dynamic. So fans of the series, women especially, should tune in.
