Storyline

James Howgill is bored with his life and his marriage and announces to his wife that he is leaving her. She tells him to do what he likes but that she will never grant him a divorce. In time, he takes up with an attractive young woman and decides to try to force the divorce issue with his wife. His lawyer however informs him that he has no grounds for a divorce and suggests that he hire a private detective to see if his wife may have taken up with another man. He agrees but is quite sure that it is not in his wife's character to carry on. Needless to say, he is astounded when the detective reports that his wife is dating and that a man has spent the night in their house. Howgill begins to see his wife in a new light and decides he wants her back. But just who is this woman that he has returned to? Written by garykmcd

Not as dark as many episodes
21 April 2018 | by talonjensenSee all my reviews

No murder and very little mayhem. This was more along the lines of a character study about why people are often more attracted to those who are not attracted to us or play hard-to-get. Mostly well done with a twist at the end that surprised me as I expected a different twist. It is nice to be surprised as I find I most often figure out the ending twist.
