In "The Chain," Agnes Moorehead stars as a housewife who doesn't break a chain letter, but ends up in trouble anyway.
As the episode opens, Leonora explains that all she did was to follow the instructions of a chain letter. She was afraid not to! She remembers the morning that letter arrived in the mail. Leonora was fixing breakfast for her husband, George...
She was also complaining to him about Abby Reynolds, who kept rubbing it in that her husband, Burt, had been appointed district manager, and not George. What with all of the difficulties of Leonora's daily life, Abby's good fortune was more than she could take!
She then opened her morning mail and discovered the chain letter. It had been started by a holy man in Tibet to end all evil, and those who did not forward the letter were subject to the dangers of breaking the chain!
Leonora considered the people she could send it to....particularly Abby Reynolds...
