This most notable aspect of this episode from this fine series is the appearance of Mary Ann Mobley(Nancy), who also happens to be the wife of main star Gary Collins, although here she's having visions of seeing her screen husband Amos(Barry Sullivan)dead. Even though there aren't many scares, a very cool scene has Nancy seeing Amos rising from a grave with silvery eyes, but that's about as far as the scares went, but this was still a solid story, although it was probably poorly edited again like many others from this stable. Dr. Rhodes shows up amongst the rich snobs, who all think Nancy's crazy, and don't believe a thing she says about her husband(not Gary Collins)being in major trouble, and she also thinks the ring Amos was given by his father has something to do with her visions; the hideous looking ring was passed down to him because he will take control of the family's wealth once the old man meets his maker. What happens next has the father telling Nancy and Dr. Rhodes that his son(Amos)has been kidnapped and held for ransom. I don't recall how, but Nancy or Dr. Rhodes envisions Amos in a local coal mine, where 5 men were accidentally killed years ago, and eventually, Dr. Rhodes finds the missing man, and friends of the family were the ones responsible for the crime. All in all, not a bad episode, but certainly not the best of the bunch.
