In "Till the Day I Die," Suspense puts their own spin on the biblical story of Cane and Abel. Dane Clark stars as a hoodlum who discovers that everything he ever wanted ...belonged to the man he murdered.
As the episode opens, Frankie paces the floor. After committing an armed robbery, it is hard not to be cagey. Frankie wants to get out of his dumpy apartment and spend the money, but his girlfriend, Pat, is the problem. She is upset about the murder he committed during their robbery. Upset that...the victim looked just like Frankie!
He can brush it off, but she can't.
Frankie is done with Pat, but she is the only witness to the murder. So, he can't let her go entirely. He tells her they have to part ways until the heat is off. She is supposed to go to Philadelphia while he goes to Chicago. They will meet later.
Frankie gets on a bus to the train station, but he quickly runs into a little boy, who mistakes him for his father. How could that possibly be?
