CBS Radio Mystery Theatre — You’re Better Off Guilty ~ Act 3: Scenes 1~3
A Promotion? Really?
Thanks to Bell, Ralph’s new image is better fitting the public’s view of what a celebrity’s killer-lover should look like. His notoriety is putting Stratton & Company on the front page of newspapers. Bell understands that this is to Ralph’s advantage. She does him a huge favour by hinting to Mr. Stratton that Ralph might leave the firm to find a better job elsewhere. Mr. Stratton takes the bait and offers Ralph a very unexpected promotion.
Ralph is enjoying his fame. He plays the part of a cool dude in charge of his destiny…that is, until Inspector Dorset unnerves him with the mention of the murder weapon.
How will it all end?
We’re getting near the end of the story. In fact, we just have one more episode after this one. Can you predict the outcome? Will Ralph finally give in to the Inspector and confess, or will someone else confess to the crime,…or does the Inspector finally find the evidence he needs?

He knows now how to act like he’s in charge, and with a little help from Bell, even got offered a promotion at work. He doesn’t look like the nervous pushover that we met at the beginning of the story. But the inspector broke through Ralph’s act and got him nervous about the gun. If Ralph truly is innocent, why is he nervous about the police finding the gun? Can you explain it? Tell me “why” in the comments below.
