The was the funniest episode yet! It was a nice break from the macabre.

Nice episode. The husband was never dead, and was mistaken for someone else. Interesting twist ending that debates the question of is it better to be a dead hero or a live coward. No supernatural elements.

A couple's wedding plans are disrupted when the bride's supposedly dead husband returns from the Spanish-American War.

A Spanish War widow is remarrying after three years. Her fiancé is rich, well connected, and, it appears, had a hand in her dead husband's military assignment. But so did she, and when the dead husband appears to them, they search their conscience, and explore the possibilities for their continued happiness.

Jack Grimes is Robert "Bobby" Halstead, who fought in Cuba with Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders. But Col. Roosevelt thinks Bobby is Billy Holmstead. Is it better to be a dead hero, or a live coward?

A good silly episode, but it makes you wonder about the fiancé with his idea to fix the situation and why she decides to marry him after that. Besides that it seems like everyone ended up okay in the end.
