In "Shadow on the Wall," a man is haunted by a shadow that mysteriously appears in his bedroom.
As the episode opens, two brothers are arguing about their old family home. Roger wants to tear down it down when construction is finished on their new, modern house. Henry is horrified that his brother is so callous about the house they grew up in and all of the memories it holds. Roger tries to placate his sentimental brother, but to no avail. Henry resents Roger for being the favorite and for being a success. So, he whacks Roger with one of his mother's silver candlesticks.
Then, he has to figure out what to do. Henry comes up with a plan to hide the body and explain his brother's absence. Luck is in his favor, and his plan goes well. So well, that no one will ever know what happened. But then, a shadow on the wall appears that may just unravel everything...
