In "Night of the Storm," a frantic wife must prove her husband's innocence before he is executed for a crime he didn't commit.
As the episode opens, Jim is on death row for murder. His attorney arrives to inform him that their request for an appeal was denied by the governor. Now, the only way they can stop his execution tomorrow night is to come up with new evidence. Jim swears he is innocent. He didn't kill his uncle. There must be a way to prove it.
His wife, Emily, believes in his innocence. His brother, Steve, believes he is guilty. Suddenly, Emily finds that suspicious. Steve stands to gain a large inheritance if Jim is dead! Emily then realizes that there may be a way to come up with new evidence after all--and she isn't going to let Steve stop her.
