Re: Unpredictable in the final scene

Fielding Chase was getting a shotgun right at the end of Butterflies in Shades of Gray. I truly believe he would have offed Columbo.

Re: Unpredictable in the final scene

Vivian trying to poison Columbo with the marmalade in "Rest in Peace, Mrs. Columbo".....Columbo lets her think she is getting revenge and lets her confess before springing the news that his wife is still alive. She end up slapping Columbo as her emotions did a quick 180.

Re: Unpredictable in the final scene

Doctor Bart Kepple seems to have something of a break down at the end. He starts of with the confident "without my help you would have never solved it" before breaking into a chuckle and then a laugh but by the freeze frame his expresion is rather manic. I could well imagine he jumped up and tried to attack Columbo.

Re: Unpredictable in the final scene

"Junior" is very unpredictable when they're on the tram going up to pinewild. He thought there was a bomb in the cigar box, he was capable of anything. At one point he even opens the tram door.

Note: last month during the holiday season I heard an old, classic Christmas episode on the radio starring Roddy McDowall. Who was very very young at the time. I believe the date was sometime in the 1950s.
