In "A Matter of Timing," a man hires a killer to murder his business partner but his plans soon go awry.
As the episode opens, a train departs the station...and two men meet on the platform. One is a hitman, and the other is Carl, a man who wants his business partner, Mark, killed. At first, the plan to kill Mark seems easy, but the hitman soon becomes weary of Carl and the unexpected delays.
Carl wants Mark killed because he hates being made to feel inferior. Mark wants to end their partnership, too, but feels a strong loyalty to his friend and business partner.
In the end, will Carl get what he wants?
