Loved that ending. It was so good i listened to it twice. Ya see they go.........

This is one of the stronger episodes from 1982. Just about the time you thought that a romance had been sparked, SURPRISE! 5 stars.

The Woman Who Wanted to Live is a FANTASTIC episode. Longtime great Larry Haines plays a very convincing hardened criminal who is severely wounded while breaking out of prison. Roberta Maxwell plays his hostage who begins to suffer from Stockholm Syndrome as she and her kidnapper travel the countryside hounded by the police. Even the short scene with Mystery Theater regular Russell Horton is meaningful and well developed. There are many turns in this story and just when you think you know how it's going to end, CBS Mystery Theater gives us one of the best twists ever. Afterward, I wondered how I would have managed in our heroine's situation. Like R McLeod above, I quickly listened to this great drama again. 4 out of 5 stars - JUROR #4
