A young woman from Quebec takes an office job and then begins to pursue a middle-aged, married executive, to his consternation and mystification. He has a drab, alcoholic wife whom he very much loves, and shies away from the young woman and her advances. Various unpleasant things occur as her stalking grows more intense, and it is not until the very end that we discover the woman's real agenda. To say the explanation is a bit far-fetched is putting it mildly, but it serves the purpose of supplying a twist ending to a TV series that doted on twist endings. Jack Klugman plays the bemused executive, and Phyllis Thaxter is his alcoholic wife. Pat O'Brien is the cop who becomes involved after a crime is committed. Nothing particularly wrong with the episode, but there's not enough going on to keep our interest up based on the running time. The actress playing the French Canadian has a rather thick accent, probably put on a bit, that today probably would generate laughter.
