Storyline

Eugene Laderman, convicted of murdering Henry Harrison, escapes. Then he kidnaps Lois at gunpoint and convinces her he did not commit murder. But if Laderman didn't kill Harrison, who did? The answer lies in a sinister piece of software called The Ides of Metropolis, and in the curious change of personality Harrison's wife experienced after Laderman's conviction.

Trivia

The title of the episode and computer program are references to Shakespeare's Julius Caesar - (Act I, Scene II): "Beware the ides of March". When he figures out the password for the Ides of Metropolis, Eugene makes that comment "The play's the thing." This is actually a quote from another Shakespeare play, Hamlet. See more »
