EDIT
Who Killed Cornelius Gilbert?
AIRED:
A hotel tycoon is electrocuted while climbing out of his swimming pool. A scrap of plaid cloth from a coat lining and a St. Christopher's medal are Burke's clues as he investigates the passengers on a round-the-world flight the tycoon was planning, including the lovely tour guide, a presidential candidate, the victim's drunken ex-mistress, a high-powered wheelerdealer and a fleeing embezzler. Just to make matters worse, Tim is attacked and kidnapped by a huge man and Burke is told that unless he lets the flight continue as planned, Tim will die.moreless

    I think the appearance of the hulking deaf-mute henchman was a suspenseful component in this segment. The why behind Tim's kidnapping kept me guessing as a viewer. Even though the final deduction was a little rushed, the episode moved at a really brisk pace.

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Continuity problem - Burke's car pulls up before Linda Murray's agency. He gets out, walks to the door, and rings the doorbell. Getting no answer, he opens the door. In the next shot, we see him continue through the door into the agency, but behind him, instead of the sidewalk, is an interior hallway. Later, Linda looks up from her desk in the office to see a man standing in the rain on the sidewalk next to that same door.
