| well written with a couple of plot twists
I think better than average because it does have a twist that isn't obvious for most of the episode. The plot twist is set up early but, only becomes obvious during the trial, reinforced later in the hotel room and confirmed after the prisoner is on the run.

Story above average, most of the acting is average or better, good plot twist and an additional plot twist at the end that ties up the story nicely with bittersweet justice.

Besides the obvious morals of don't steal or kill, the main moral of the story is don't promise someone their dream, renege on it and laugh at their gullibility.
