An eerie episode.

Marie

A young, poor man is consistently brow-beat nagged by his rich uncle who continually taunts him with his money. In a fit of rage, he kills his uncle. His tangled web of lies spun to cover up the crime comes unspun slowly and painfully.

Angie Vermont

A penniless young man and his wife struggle to make a living. He works part time for his miserly, penny-pinching uncle for extra money. The old man hangs his inheritance in front of him like a carrot in front of a donkey. He also says that he may give it all to his other nephew, who has a dubious reputation and no contact with the family. The young man grows desperate and irate at his brow-beating uncle and the treatment he receives from him and thinks about murder, but has never been able to act on it. But everyone has a breaking point, don’t they?

This was a fantastic episode which had very good ending. It reminded me of a morbid game I used to play as a teen--you know, the "if you could marry anybody who would it be, if you had to spend eternity in a city, what would it be, if you could kill somebody, who would it be???" In this episode, it proves that no matter what, your sins find you out. And even if you plan the perfect murder, it will sooner or later come out in the wash. 5 stars.

Another episode in which the ending was blatantly foreshadowed...and I still missed it. Crime drama, no supernatural elements.

Hans had a stupid cousin - drive your cousin insane in an effort to find the uncle's money. Didn't he think that he might snap and attack him? Anyway, it was a good episode and I liked that the sound effects weren't overwhelming like they have been in previous episodes.
