Kim Stanger (John Forsythe) is a troubled man who returns to the States from Europe only to find that his estranged father has died and there appears to be a conspiracy among his family to conceal the truth about what happened. As he grows increasingly agitated, he seeks out to unravel the story of his father's death despite his brother and sister-in-law advising him to leave it alone.

[he appears standing in front of a chair].


Episode 2 of Season 1.
Personal opinion
"Quite a slow-paced episode which builds to a fairly obvious climax. Second episode in the series maintains the suspense and outcome guessing game throughout, though the predictable ending does feel a bit of a cheap conclusion."
Kim tracks down his father's hunting lodge, deep in the mountains and is confronted by his sister-in-law, who tells him the truth: Kim killed his father during an argument and was later committed to an asylum for it and had been suffering from amnesia ever since the incident.
