"Consideration" is a love story about a wife who believes her husband wants to kill her in order to collect the insurance money.
As the episode opens, Charles admits to his wife, Ellen, that he has been borrowing money to keep up their lifestyle. To pay off those loans, he had to steal funds from his company. Now, Charles wants to use the savings in their safe deposit box to replace the money he stole from work, and he asks Ellen to go get it.
Ellen tells him that she would do just that, but she has already gambled away all of that money. She has been betting on the horses but never winning, so there isn't any money left.
Charles appears forgiving, but when he takes out a new life insurance policy on her, Ellen becomes conviced that he is planning to kill her.
