During the rehersal of a play where the principle actors are staging a duel, the character playing Aaron Burr drops dead. His stage partner, a vain well known actor, believes that the gentleman died as a tribute to his own fabulously brilliant performance. An investigation begins into the real cause of the shooting.

Very interesting episode. I liked the storyline. A nice "Twilight Zone" theme and twist. The ending left you wondering about the mud on the car and the actor. How much was he really acting in the end.

Although this was an okay episode, I couldn't stay focused on the story line at all and zoned out while listening to it. It just didn't hold my attention very well.

Guess Aaron Burr, sir, was not throwing away his shot.
