    *** SPOILERS ***



    A good beginning starts with the discovery of a dead body by a ferry quay. It leads to a semi-interesting middle act where Briscoe, Green, McCoy and Serena attempt to peel away the layers of misdirection. The final act where all is revealed is pretty lame, even if I was wishing for it to happen quicker rather than later.



    Subject matter is nothing special - with most of the misdirection pointing to investors of stock that the dead analyst helped rip off. However, the culprit(s) are/is closer to home. This twist in plot didnt even register with me as its been done before and the characters where rather unsympathetic imo.



    The whole point of the story was to demonstrate the defences increasing use of "special circumstances" to explain away spousal murder. And this is the only really interesting point of the entire episode as its shown well enough.



    At times the slow pace with want you, wishing to have your teeth pulled out. So only watch this if you are a fan.moreless
