I have long since noticed that Henry James' characters NEVER do the sensible, obvious thing that everybody else would most assuredly do to resolve their dilemmas!

I enjoyed this episode. The evil sister came across as suitably reprehensible. I wonder how many evil sibling episodes there have been in RMT. I seem to remember twin brothers, who both turned out to be bad apples.

This episode was not rated very highly but I enjoyed it more than some others that are rated higher. It's interesting how the hateful sister's arrogance and selfishness led to her demise. It's hard to not feel like she "got what was coming to her." Didn't you cheer for the first sister at the end?

I was happy to see revenge served.

Wow, I rememberd this one from its original airing, although my memory of it was so vague I thought perhaps I dreamt it. Maybe I fell asleep while it was on the first time around. I couldn't help but wonder what the sister saw when she opened the wardrobe. Just invisible hands, or maybe a horrible rotting face? That's the power of radio right there.
