Good episode of suspense that's a cross a double cross and twist at the end!
17 November 2017 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

This "AHP" episode from 1962 season 7 called "Apex" is one that's interesting and it takes a turn at the end that you didn't see coming as this was a well done and good episode for it's day and time. It features a married couple Claude and Clara and they run a business together, yet on the side Claude is having an affair with Margo a younger and attractive younger lady. And Clara finds out and she wants a divorce with no settlement money for Claude and never fear Margo and Claude have a plan to rid Clara with a hit man! Only you never would think about it, but Margo decides to take matters into her own hands a plan that backfires, it proves that when you try to hard and do stuff yourself you learn a painful lesson! Overall good episode with drama and it twist like a good mystery suspense show should!
