Episode Summary

EDIT
Sam Faces Death
AIRED:

Nell is out of town at her cousins funeral as Simpson storms into the house and says that the Chief was shot but is all right. The Chief is mad at Simpson because he accidentally shot him in his office when he showed a fellow officer his secret moves with his gun. As he shows the family how he performs the moves, he accidentally shoots the gun again and the bullet smashes into the fish tank, killing Gertrude the goldfish. Soon everyone learns that the Chief has an assassin against him as Simpson is interviewed on the news, telling everyone he saved him from being shot dead by his gun. Samantha becomes obsessed that God is taking too many people around her and begins to talk to him about why he takes people away. In the end, Sam talks to Grandpa and he tells her that she should enjoy life and take it slowly and not have to worry about death anymore. When Nell returns from her cousins funeral, Samantha fills her in on what happened while she was away and she cannot believe it, as Simpson shoots his gun again accidentally inside the house and the Chief runs after him with a club.
