In "Death of an Old Flame," a piano player agrees to help his wife and her boyfriend steal a fortune in furs.
As the episode opens, Ronnie Warren is playing piano at a nightclub and fending off advances from the lady customers. He is jaded and bored by it all, until he looks up from the keys and sees...his wife. Anna left him for another man five years ago, but now she needs his help.
Anna tells him that she and her boyfriend, Frank, are having a hard time financially, but they have a plan to steal a stash of valuable fur coats. She asks Ronnie to help them, and incredibly, he agrees. Ronnie thinks that stealing the furs is all there is to it, but he soon realizes that Frank didn't tell him the real plan. Frank soon realizes that Anna never told him about Ronnie's karate skills.
Is it ever a good idea to help your wife steal for her boyfriend?
