In "Vamp Till Dead," Ginger Rogers stars as a woman who attempts to solve her sister's murder through an elaborate plan that involves recreating herself in her sister's image and then marrying her husband.
As the episode opens, Amy has just arrived at the home of the famous writer Paul Gentry, to start a new job as his private secretary. In his initial encounter with her, Paul is tough and demanding, but the cook, Jenny, tells her not to worry. Mr. Gentry isn't as harsh as he appears. People just don't understand him. Then, Jenny explains that Mr. Gentry's late wife, Isabell, died about a year earlier. It was never proven that Paul Gentry was responsible for her death, but many people believe he was. Jenny then notices how much Amy looks like the late Mrs. Gentry...
Paul and Amy spend the next few weeks working furiously on his new book, until one day a local newspaper reporter named Al Pender comes by. Paul wants nothing to do with him! He resents the articles that Al wrote about Isabell's murder.
When Al and Amy are alone, he warns her to be careful of Paul Gentry. Al believes that Paul killed his wife and that Amy is in danger. Then, Amy tells him that she already knows that...because she is Isabell's sister!
Can Amy find out what really happened to Isabell?
