While reconstructing the crime at the end, Quincy says that if the blood on the gown had happened the way the police said, there would have been blood streaks instead of droplets. However, because he was shaking the gown while talking, the fake blood was running in streaks, belying his whole argument. See more »

Some interesting facts about "Stain Of Guilt"
28 April 2015 | by jsayersjrSee all my reviews

Very good episode indeed! I'm watching season 6 in order and this is without doubt the best episode of the season. Besides having a nice cameo from Sid Haig, who fans of b-movies will recognize, there is another familiar face to horror film fans. Candace Hilligoss, the star of "Carnival Of Souls", the classic cult film has a nice cameo in this episode, although not a speaking part. It appears to be her last credited screen role. Also, Carolyn Jones was not very well at this point - she died 2 years after this role from colon cancer. I believe she was already being treated for it at this point and it shows in her appearance and gestures. I didn't know this until watching the episode and, becoming alarmed looked her history and bio up here on IMDb.
