A woman is tricked by her psychotic twin sister and ends up in an asylum while her sister takes over her identity out in the "real" world. Will she be able to convince anyone of who she really is? An interesting story that moves along nicely (and particularly was relevant for me as I have an identical twin brother!). Genre: Suspense

One of the better episodes - well paced and quite scary at the finale. There's also some subtle humor in some of Max's quips. Clever "Sherlock" like clue picked up by the sheriff. And terrific acting by Marian Seldes playing both sisters, inhabiting both personalities.

Wow, I agree with Mike. Marian Seldes did a brilliant job as Susan and Anita. Suspenseful episode. For awhile there, I thought Anita was going around the bend.

This is the role Marian Seldes was born to play. Campy, vampy, and crazy!

Marian Seldes was made to play crazy!!!

I agree that it was a great episode and that Marian Seldes did a great job in the two roles. I did find it interesting to write that a doctor would never meet (or ask to meet) a patient's twin sister who the patient was trying to kill.

Okay who would actually go meet their deranged sister who escaped from a mental hospital?
