Episode Summary

EDIT

Miss Marple meets with her old friend, Ruth Van Rydock, who is worried about her sister, Carrie Louise Serrocold, after a mysterious fire ends up destroying some of Carrie Louise's treasured possessions. She asks Miss Marple to visit her sister's estate, Stonygates, a huge manor house, where some of the buildings and grounds are used as a reformatory for juvenile criminals. Soon, Carrie Louise's stepson by her second marriage shows up. He is Christian Gulbrandsen, and he runs the trust which contributes a fraction of the funds used to run Stonygates. Later that night, as Carrie Louise's current husband Lewis runs a dress rehearsal for a musical revue for the inmates of the facility, Christian is stabbed while writing a letter on his typewriter. Miss Marple and the local police quickly learn that Christian believed Carrie Louise was being poisoned, but was killed before he could reveal the poisoner's identity. For the sake of Carrie Louise and her family, Miss Marple sets out to find the killer and alleged poisoner, but then another murder is committed during the revue, and tainted oysters, secret children, jealousy, a hidden passageway, and an unlocked gate are thrown into the mix, as well. Who is trying to poison Carrie Louise? And was the use of a clever conjuring trick the key to solving the mystery?
