Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (2023)

In the middle of the fourth season ofmurder, she wroteIt's the resultIndian donor🇧🇷 It is an episode of Cabot Cove and deals with the esoteric topic of historical land allocations. It begins with a helicopter shot of a forest near Cabot Cove:

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (1)

The helicopter turns around and approaches our namesake Indian:

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (2)

We later find out his name is George Longbow. This is a curious name for an American Indian, as the longbow was an English weapon of only historical interest when the English made contact with anyone in Maine (the first English colony was Popham Colony in 1607, although it only lasted 14 months) . . 🇧🇷

Gaze out over Cabot Cove from this high vantage point, where she will soon emerge.

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (3)

This is a very interesting view of Cabot Cove. It's obviously only part, but it's funny to think that this is the place that can support a high school big enough to have a football team (seeAs the thieves Cain).

Cabot Cove may mark Founders Day in Cabot Cove's long history. There's a photo of the crowd that's quite interesting:

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (4)

It's an interesting image of what a small town in America might have looked like in the mid-1980s, but it might even be a little too accurate for the small California town where it was filmed. It's not uncommon to hire extras locally; After all, you don't want to pay to transport people without lines.

The mayor, Sam Booth, begins to make a speech when some kids come up to them and say, "Hey, look! Look what's coming! Look!" The camera then looks down the street and George Longbow comes galloping around the corner:

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (5)

I know I'm a little prone to criticism, but I can't imagine how the boys saw George from so far away that they had time to walk around and yell "what's coming". Horses can't gallop down the sidewalk at full speed, but they still move much faster than ten-year-olds. Also, I can't help but wonder how that abandoned car with the bright green hood ended up in this photo. George then gallops down Main Street to the gathering, although he is walking his horse as he approaches the crowd, which separates from him.

George then throws his javelin at the podium.

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (6)

I have to say that this is a very good recording. It's hard to tell the actual distance, but I think it was about ten meters, even on horseback. George must have been very good or very reckless to take that shot; If it was about 8″ taller it would have impaled the mayor, and if it was about 18″ shorter it could have gone through his leg as well, which could prove fatal if it hit a large blood vessel. George then turns and gallops away.

The white thing behind the feathers is a piece of paper that Jessica takes off the spear and reads. Then he says "Oh dear". The mayor tells everyone it's nothing, but then he, Doc Hazlet, and Amos leave. Along the way, the three argue over the role. It is a photocopy of a land grant. "Forever granted to Chief Manitoka and his heirs, all those lands that end at the water's edge, which can be seen as far as possible from Rain God's Hill, aka Algonquin Peak, to the east, north, and south on a bright sunny day." Day."

Sam appoints Doc Hazlet and Jessica Fletcher to a committee of two to find out if the land grant is real. There's no indication who actually provided this land grant, but I guess we can't have everything. You go to a specialist at a nearby university:

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (7)

Unfortunately, you can't tell if the land grant is real until you examine the original. Jessica thinks that since the Indian is media savvy, if he gets a big enough audience, he might step forward and be ready to show the original document. Jessica convinces Sam to call a town hall meeting that night, which he does.

Next we meet one of the Cabot Cove characters in the episode:

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (8)

His name is Norman Edmonds and he works and/or owns a bank which owns the majority of the mortgages in Cabot Cove. (If you recognize him, the actor played the dentist inThe Night of the Headless Horseman.) He talks to Harris Atwater, but he doesn't play a major role in this episode. However, it advances part of the plot. His company will build a $17 million resort hotel in Cabot Cove, but not if the land allotment is legitimate.

(Video) Indian Chaka Demus - Murder She Wrote

Attwater meets Addison Langley and his wife Helen:

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (9)

Addison has land he wants to sell to Attwater, but Attwater is not interested until the Indian land grant treaty is finalized. Addison is completely unreasonable, possibly because he's drunk. It also looks intense. He starts scolding her for interrupting him while he was talking about business and his brother comes over and interrupts her.

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (10)

His name is Tom Carpenter and he's not very happy with the way Addison treats his sister.

At the last moment George Longbow appears, this time in a suit and carrying a briefcase.

The photo from the Cabot Cove Town Meeting is interesting:

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (11)

Obviously the age is older here, as is typical of all forms of government, including local government. Except that Cabot Cove isn't that big of a place, unless the citizens of Cabot Cove generally don't care about George Longbow's claims, and certainly not the kind of place to have your own big enough schoolhouse is to have a football team.

Angry members of the community are speaking up and demanding...what, it's not entirely clear. Some sort of indefinite end to the threat that looms over them.

George speaks. It turned out that the land allocation dates back to 1758. Manitoka helped the British win a major battle against the French and the British Governor-General awarded the land including Cabot Cove to Manitoka and his descendants and George is the 11th direct descendant of that boss. In response to a question from Jessica about what she plans to do if her claim is valid, she said she has no intention of evicting people from their homes just to get them to pay their rent.

It's a little difficult to take this premise seriously, since a British land grant in the middle of the 18th century will not undo everything that has happened in the two hundred and thirty years since. Hundreds of years of not pretending the land belonged to Longbow's ancestors will be an abandonment of ownership. if nothing elsedisadvantageous possessionwill make the whole matter moot since the people of Cabot Cove were clearly in open and known possession of the land. Even if we put all of this aside and it was practically impossible to undo, you would have a hard time proving that none of your ancestors sold any of their land to any of the Cabot founders. Bay.

There are a few other issues that may prevent George from pursuing his claim, even if the claim is completely untenable. For one thing, you have to pay quite a bit of inheritance tax. On the other hand, you have a high legal liability for accidents that happen on your property because of your negligence in keeping the place in good condition.

Apparently, residents of Cabot Cove are unfamiliar with basic real estate laws. Let me take this opportunity to mention that taking a business law course is a great idea by the way, so Addison Langley insults George who gets confused. it fits because it contradicts Langley's description of him as "red-skinned". This fight is interrupted and the meeting ends in a room with a few:

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (12)

It turns out that George met Donna, the specialist's daughter, while he was doing research at the university. Then we move on to the demo. He pulls the original document out of his briefcase, which he found among his late mother's belongings a few months ago. He hands it over to the teacher. The professor is professorial - he is "very interesting". It seems legit, but you need to do some testing.

However, George thought about it. Gives the teacher validation reports from different experts. The professor reads the reports and concludes, "If all of this is confirmed, it appears that this man really does own Cabot Cove."

Norman (the banker) screams that there are courts in this country, yadda yadda. George replies that he graduated from Harvard Law School, so he's not intimidated by litigation. If you're telling the truth, and aside from the fact that you should be aware of unfavorable possession laws, you should be aware that legal action is usually very slow, even if you don't go through the threat of legal action be intimidated.

Not to mention threats to take legal action. It's not up to the people who (allegedly) occupy the land he claims is his land to sue Longbow, it's up to him to sue them to evict them or force them to pay the rent to pay what they owe him.

More fighting ensues, which Jessica interrupts to ask Longbow what he's up to and he says he intends to set each owner's rent at half a percentage of its worth and that the average resident will only pay $200 a year . This is absolutely silly considering how much you owe in property taxes, what upkeep you are responsible for, etc. I'm really starting to wonder if he really went to Harvard Law School. If so, I'm pretty sure you've never taken basic business accounting courses, no matter where you got your degree.

The meeting ends instead of closing. Outside the building, George is accosted by a mob of angry residents. Jessica tries to stop them by saying their names, but they don't want to listen to her. Donna, the professor's daughter, comes and calls George. He hits a commoner with his briefcase, who lunges at him, then runs to his car, which pulls away.

In the next scene, George and Donna argue. She feels taken advantage of and he admits he didn't tell her about the land lease because he didn't know how she would react. (What other reason could he have for not telling him?) She asks him if he has any sense of self-preservation, and he says he has plenty, so no one knows where he is. On the other hand, he didn't seem to have an escape plan from the city meeting and hints that he won't stay too far away, rather than, say, Portland or some other big Maine city where the police don't keep a dog in the fight. . Hell,Obituary for a dead anchorThe episode notes that Cabot Cove is only a six-hour drive from New York City. She could have stayed in New Hampshire or even Massachusetts and only a short drive from Cabot Cove. He didn't really need to be around if he really felt any sense of self-preservation.

Donna has a funny quote: "I hope your reign as Emperor of Cabot Cove is long and happy." He asks her to drop him off where his truck is parked outside of town. (Was his plan to escape actually go to the truck?) She agrees, but first warns him to be careful. The people of Cabot Cove feel threatened, and it doesn't take much fear to turn a mob into a mob.

The next scene is in the motel room in Cabot Cove of Donna. Her father appears and asks why she hasn't told him about George, and she says yes twice. He just wasn't listening. He asks if there is anything he should know about her and George and she says no, they are just friends. (The scene is very well written, with good characterization; they are offended but immediately apologize.) He also didn't help George with the land grant. he says good night to her, but instead of going to his room, he goes somewhere. We don't see where; The next scene is Cabot Cove in the morning.

(Video) Spear Him A Thought | Murder, She Wrote

Jessica is on her way for a morning walk when she stops to see Helen Langley and Attwater talking. After the conversation, Helen returns to her house and doesn't stumble over anything:

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (13)

I know I'm criticizing, but his weight was already on his front foot when he started "stumbling" on his back foot. Jessica rushes to her aid, and Helen explains, "I'm just a little dizzy, that's all." It's funny that "Lady's Travels" was just a plot point the writers were using at the time. I think it's kind of a fad; I can't remember a woman as the basis of the plot encountering any common ground in the films of the 1930s or 1940s.dusk, in which the leading lady running through a forest made her fall so many times her arms and legs were covered in scratches, and when she was about to be attacked by a gang of people a block and a half from a movie theater, she stood instead to run to safety because I didn't expect to be able to walk a few hundred yards on slippery pavement without falling (and I was wearing running shoes, so the wrong shoes weren't an excuse).

Regardless, Helen's stumbling is just an excuse for Jessica to see that Helen's forearm is covered in bruises.

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (14)

Jessica leads her inside and then brings her a cup of tea. As she goes to the kitchen to get the tea, this is what we see on the vision track:

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (15)

murder, she wrotehe occasionally takes elaborate photos, but he never cuts off a person's top half without good reason. It's very likely that the murder victim has wet paint, or that someone who shouldn't have visited Helen has wet paint on them.

Jessica notices that her eye is swollen as well, which Helen puts it down to crying a lot over the India thing. Jessica remarks that Helen and Addison are fixing the kitchen, which will look beautiful, and Helen says she is doing it. "Advertising is a dreamer, not a doer." Helen pauses and looks like she's about to cry, then says it's no secret Ad is drinking again. She hasn't even seen him since last night.

He also explains, after a question from Jessica, that Addison had an idea a few years ago that a piece of land near a creek would be worth something, so he bought an option and it turned out to be just that piece of land was. Land on which Mr. Attwater plans to build his resort.

In the next scene, Jessica goes to the police station where Seth, Amos and the Mayor are already in a conference. There's news that the professor left town an hour ago after receiving a call from Norman Edwards. Then a call comes in that there's trouble on the council about Addison Langley, and the doctor should come too.

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (16)

If that javelin could have killed Langley, not with that little bit of blood. Jessica, on the other hand, notices a lot of sand on Langley's feet (which the camera didn't show us). There are apparently sand marks all over the floor and through a side door.

Seth tells Jessica that Langley definitely didn't die here because there wasn't enough blood. He's right, of course, but he could have gone one step further and said he wasn't speared either, for the same reason. (Though, to be fair, with a stab wound, much of the bleeding can be internal.)

Amos walks over and asks if there is anything else he should know about the corpse as if he has a bruise. Seth says no, just some nail polish on one hand. The time of death was midnight, plus or minus an hour or two.

Jessica is off somewhere when she encounters Mr. Attwater. Jessica accuses him of murder (her line is simply that murder is too convenient) and he is rightly offended.

In the next scene, a truckload of Cabot Covers spots George Longbow in his truck and forces him off the road, then gives chase on foot. They take him, beaten and bloodied, to the sheriff's office.

Meanwhile, Jessica tracks Norman down. He's working on something to do with a mortgage on a house a cute Boston couple bought. Jessica is surprised at the uncertainty that he intends to keep the mortgage, but Norman is sure Longbow won't cause any more trouble. Jessica asks why everyone in Cabot Cove is so sure that Longbow killed Langley.

I'd like to know why you think George Longbow's murder of Langley would somehow invalidate his title. I realized that if this were England during the golden age of crime fiction, where Longbow would be hanged for murder in a matter of weeks and he died childless, his ownership would be gone. (Actually, the country would return to the crown, but close enough.)

Jessica questions Norman about his call to the professor, and he admits that he offered the professor fifty thousand dollars this morning to prove irrefutably that George Longbow's claim is fraudulent. Jessica is shocked by the amount of money and Norman replies, "If this man is who he says he is, my bank is ruined. I'm screwed. It was a bit stupid of Jessica not to know that, but I think the point here is to make Norman a suspect.

And to think that you would only have to pay a few hundred dollars to a lawyer! Seriously, they bring in a university professor who specializes in Indian history, but nobody thinks of asking a lawyer for anything. There is literally no attorney character in the entire episode.

At the sheriff's office, Amos isn't too happy with the conditions the people who brought Longbow delivered him on. They show no remorse and Amos doesn't push the matter.

A few minutes later, Tom (Helen's brother and Addison's brother-in-law) shows up with Longbow's truck. Return the wallet, keys, etc. from longbow.

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (17)
(Video) Terribaation (Bhangra Remix)

Jessica leaves and sees George in the jail cell because apparently no one thought medical attention was appropriate for Longbow. Seriously, people can die from strokes due to internal bleeding. Taking him to the hospital (in police custody) would have been appropriate. Jessica's speech is also a bit strange. Immediately after sitting down next to him, he says:

Now listen to me, young man. Right now, you and I may be the only two people in Cabot Cove who believe you are innocent of this murder. But retreating into a stony, hypocritical silence won't help the situation at all. Well, you're too smart to commit such a stupid murder. Now suppose you tell me the truth and start with why you really came to Cabot Cove.

He tells her that he doesn't want to fool the townspeople for his personal gain. The money is used to finance a scholarship program for young Indians who would otherwise not have the opportunity to go to university. Jessica asks him why he opened negotiations in such a confrontational manner, and he says that if he had approached the "folk fathers" through conventional means, they would have simply ignored him.

Since the only way to enforce your claim would be through court, it wouldn't really matter. I'm beginning to doubt that he's too smart to commit senseless murder. If it weren't for the varnish on the victim's hand, which is presumably a continuity error from the "wet paint" we saw in Helen's kitchen, I would have started to suspect George was murdered.

Jessica asks where he was at the time of the murder and if he can prove it. He was at a motel and arrived at 11:30 after office hours, so he can't prove it.

Amos interrupts him and says that he just got a call from the mayor and that they have to leave immediately because the professor has news. Jessica stands up and tells George that she believes in him and will do anything she can for him. Since he can't tell her from Eve, I don't know how comforting that is for him.

On the way to the meeting, Amos tells Jessica that his deputy found beach sand in the back of George Longbow's truck, the same sand they found on Ad Langley's body.

At the meeting, the professor says that George Longbow is an imposter.

The land grant is real enough. No, I'm talking about the longbow itself. Remember the flu epidemic that swept the country in 1918, especially in the Northeast? Thousands died in this area, with the Indian population being particularly hard hit. The survivors were adopted by the few families that remained intact. Well, under the circumstances, Longbow cannot claim direct, verifiable lineage from Chief Manitoka.

I don't understand how that can make such a claim impossible. Longbow may have come from a line that moved elsewhere in the early 1900s. Perhaps he is trying to point out that all Indian birth records were destroyed when so many died from the 1918 flu, and therefore no one can prove his lineage. ? But why would the flu destroy Indian birth certificates? (If such records were actually kept.) Of all the ways to refute this claim, this seems the least certain.

The mayor and the professor talk to George Longbow. Jessica and Amos take George's motel keys and go to search his room. There are sandy beach shoes, and there is also beach sand all over the motel floor. There's only one problem.

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (18)

The soles of the shoes are rubber soles and have no traces of sand. (Rubber soles, by the way, are shoe soles made from natural rubber, which is very durable and very sticky and provides good traction. It used to be used to make sneakers before the move to lighter polyurethane).

Jessica is now certain that George Longbow is being set up.

She and Amos go to Helen's house. His brother Tom is there keeping his sister company. Amos doesn't believe in beating around the bush by accusing Helen and Tom of stuffing George Longbow up into his pockets.

Jessica points out that Tom knew the motel George Longbow was staying at because he had arrived separately, with the motel key and George's wallet. He used the key to place the fake evidence.

How the timing works, I have no idea. Assuming he not only donated his own shoes to frame Longbow, he should have carried sand to frame Longbow when he and his friends were looking for Longbow so he didn't have to drive to the beach to get some. Even if he did, he didn't arrive until shortly after Longbow was taken to the sheriff's office, and he would have to pull Longbow's truck out of the ditch he fell into alone if he wasn't waiting to be towed. TRUCK. 🇧🇷

Jessica points out to Helen that since paint was found on Addison's hand and there was wet paint on the furniture she was fixing, the sheriff can prove she was involved. Jessica is also certain that no matter how hard she scrubs, she can't get Addison's blood off the kitchen floor. Jessica suggests that she tell them what happened (never take Jessica Fletcher's legal advice, by the way), and she does.

Addison came home last night after looking for George Longbow on the beach. He really wanted to hit someone and she was the only one around so he hit her. He wouldn't stop, so she grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed him.

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (19)

Then he called Tom. I was scared to death when he got there. He then explained how he covered up the murder and tricked Longbow by driving the spear into the kitchen knife wound to cover up the true cause of death.

There is a final scene with Seth, Jessica, George Longbow and Donna.

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (20)

Jessica just got on the phone with news that Attwater's company was held up by the murder and is scouting a property in New Jersey. Because murders don't happen in New Jersey.

(Video) Theatre Can Be Murder | Murder, She Wrote

Seth and Jessica are excited as they hate anything that brings more people to Cabot Cove. George and Donna have to go, Seth offers to drive and Jessica comes with them, so they go to Donna's hotel.

Jessica asks George and Donna what their plans are. They don't have any concrete plans yet, but they're working on it.

Jessica also mentions to George that there is a lot of support for the idea of ​​forming a scholarship for worthy young Native Americans and they have already formed a committee to implement it. George asks Jessica if she has Algonquian blood. She says that with her complexion she doubts it very much, but if she doubted it, she would be very proud of it.

The professor then jumps in and explains that he made it halfway back to the university, so he turns around. He apologizes to Donna, God knows why, and asks if they can come in and have lunch. You can make a table for three. Donna is very happy about...something. She says, "Come on, George. I think we're in the process of negotiating a peace treaty.

The three then enter the hotel arm in arm. After they leave, Jessica and Seth head home. Jessica asks Seth why Seth was as calm as a mountain lake when everyone else was afraid of losing their home. He replies that he's too old to be involved in this kind of hysteria. Also rent. Although Jessica doesn't laugh, let's move on to the credits.

Murder She Wrote: Indian Giver (21)

Definitely not one of the best.murder, she wroteIt is interesting to consider that this would never be possible now, despite TV ratings being much, much lower than when this episode first aired, and even though much of the episode's (stated) purpose was against Indian anti-racism.

Now don't get me wrong. Starting with George Longbow in war paint and throwing a javelin should be sensational, and the rest was probably as much an excuse to get started as anything else. Virtual signaling is not an exclusively modern phenomenon.

I also suspect that he has appealedmurder, she wroteso much because it was a throwback to the typical viewer's youth when they loved to watch Hollywood Indians on TV showsthe lone rider,gun smoke,Waggon, etc. However, television in the 1980s may not have been what it was in the 1950s. Television and films increasingly dealt with explicit and illegal sex, recreational drugs, and senseless violence (i.e., violence not aimed at achieving justice in a troubled world but merely to excite the viewer, such as feeding hungry baboons to Christians). in the circus). 🇧🇷 They had to pretend to be better at something; Various progressive social issues then, as now, served to numb their consciences. Perhaps more importantly, it served as an apology for people who wanted to excuse him, in the same way you can find people telling you those nude brothel scenesWar Two ThronesThey were absolutely an integral part of the storyline. Full Disclosure: As far as I know I never saw the show, the brothel scenes.We areproperty essentialas written, but I don't think it's plausible that the writers found it impossible to place the scenes elsewhere, or at least in a brothel, before people undress or after they've dressed them.

One important thing to understand about television is that a lot of people don't want the writers to be smart enough to write Game of Thrones without the brothel scenes. They want a moral negligence they can defend because they don't want the rigor of morality, but they don't want to admit that they don't either. The hypocrisy of Hollywood is somewhat inherent in a city full of people who want to be famous and popular, but it also reflects the people who at least see them in concert.

Anyway thevery special episodeThe look of the episode is... weird, poorly done and frankly a little indifferent. The redneck mob is a Hollywood staple, probably because they love cities and hate small towns, and here they are as cartoonish as ever.

There's also the very odd aspect of how superfluous the whole Indian land grant is to the Mystery. To be fair, it's totally unreasonable to have a prime mover in a crime that's a huge diversion to mystery. Traditionally, murder has something to do with the main engine of the story; creating an opportunity or launching something only marginally related. (In the latter category, it would take advantage of the great distraction to commit the murder as it's happening in hopes of covering it up.) Here, the only connection was Addison's resentment over the land allocation tonight. That's pretty trivial.

There is the additional problem that, as I said, the whole premise that Cabot Cove is in jeopardy because of a two hundred and thirty year old British land grant is... absurd. That's not how land ownership works. The old adage that ownership is nine-tenths of the law isn't necessarily true, but there is something to it, especially when it comes to land. The land must be defended to some extent in order to stay in your possession. I think that part of the intuition that those who tend the land are the ones who really have the right to its fruits, and while that's not the principle of law, principles of law are not far from it. You will find very few instances (the latter) where a different person pays for the maintenance of the property than the person who owns it. (Renters pay rent and vacuum carpets, but don't replace bathtubs or frayed electrical wiring.)

The problem with absurd premises is not that they are absurd, but that they mean that all rational rules are temporarily suspended. It takes a lot of joy in a mystery. The greatest grace of a mystery is that, though it is a mess, it is onerationaltangled. When a mystery writer tells you to stop thinking so much, that's just entertainment, he's writing for the wrong genre. It would be as if the crossword player were telling players not to worry so much about the correct spelling of words when you have to spell "book" with a "u" in order for the crossword to match.

Another problem that arises in this episode is that if the murder is only tangentially related to the plot driving force, then the plot driving force must be resolved on its own terms, or most of the story will be a waste of time. So we must make the history of Indian land grants interesting on its own terms. Since the Land Grant can't work (because it's about episodic television) we need some supporting characters. So we have the professor and his daughter.

In between there are two main scenes. The first is to examine your relationship and the damage your workaholism has caused. how they love each other despite communication difficulties. This scene was well done and even convincing.

The other scene was of the two making up after a big fight. The only big problem with this was that there wasn't a big fight they had to make up for. Their previous scene together ended with them getting along with no open issues. Their reconciliation almost feels like the father agreeing to his daughter's desire to marry George Longbow, except that according to the rest of the episode, they're just friends and only explore the possibility of their friendship at the end of the episode. . it will be romantic.

Given the rest of the episode, I assume the father turned down his daughter's wish to marry an Indian. If that's it, they forgot that part. The other problem is that he is a workaholic who has devoted his life to studying Indian history. It is highly unlikely that he was appalled by his daughter's marriage to an Indian. But even if it was, I mean, once the land allocation got serious, anything is possible, they forgot to include it in the episode. At best, we are left with a touching scene of reconciliation between two people who have never fought. It's also never explained why, after he and Donna made up at the motel, he went to his room but then turned around and went off into the night.

The character of Norman Edwards is an odd non-entity in this story. He's played by an actor with tremendous presence, but he doesn't have much to do. I think he should be listed as a suspect as there was a lot at stake for him. Not a very plausible suspect as killing a random Cabot Cover and slandering George Longbow isn't a plan to save your bank. It is true that the author may not realize that George Longbow would still have property rights even in prison; as I said, that's one of the problems with the arbitrary exposure of reality.

The other almost unknown entity in the story is Harris Attwater. His intention to build a resort near Cabot Cove is a driving force for part of the episode, but his presence as a character is entirely unnecessary. Although Jessica does frame Attwater for murdering Addison Langley, he's never a plausible suspect. Businessmen will not murder the people they want to buy the land from in order to get someone who might actually own it to ditch that title. They either move or wait until they find out who owns the land and then negotiate with them. Assuming that George Longbow's absurd claim actually contained legal water, he is as capable of selling the creek land to Attwater as Langley was. In fact, I suspect Longbow would be preferable of the two.

As a side note, it's funny how many times the threat of development near Cabot Cove has been a threat. I think that comes with nostalgiamurder, she wroteand its theme that old things are still good. The country's development implies that things weren't good enough, or at least threatens that the old things will disappear.

With all that said we finally have a Cabot Cove episode and also one where Cabot Cove is actually a small town. This is very funny. Hillbilly stereotypes distract from this fun, but it's fun when Amos gets to know the motel owner and his habits: it would be nice to live somewhere where you really know each other.

Usually,Indian donorIt's not a great sequel and doesn't have many redeeming features. If that were typicalmurder, she wroteEpisode it would never have lasted twelve seasons. On the other hand, this gets to the heart of what made TV what it was then: Most wasn't very good, but some was, and there wasn't much else to do, so it was worth the effort , the sadness. Tune in each week to see if this was a lucky week. And it was easy to guess who the killer was, as it was pretty obvious when Seth mentioned the nail polish on the corpse's hand. It's a gift, but it can add to the fun.

The episode is next weekSunset with a view🇧🇷 Jessica is going to New York to visit Grady.
