One of the best episode of Lizzie Mcguire in the entire series, and probably the most memorable. This doesn't happen a lot on this show, but we've had a successful season arc this season, and it developed beautifully in this episode. Gordo likes Lizzie, we've known this since "First Kiss" so it's not a surprise to viewers, it's a surprise to Lizzie.
The whole murder mystery plot was really great, and a great tie in with the plot lines in this episode. Murder mysteries are always fun, and they're apparently entertaining to watch too! I remember when I first watched this episode, I was at the edge of my seat at the very end when Gordo was going to ask out Lizzie.
I cringed when Sam interrupted about the stupid eel cooking competition, but you can't help but to laugh at Sam's really bad timing. Great acting from Hallie Todd, way more than what I can say about everyone else. Even Hilary Duff's performance was lacking.
Lizzie trying to find out what she feels about Gordo is left up in the air in the perfect way. Perfect setup for the series finale. Amazing episode, even though Miranda was absent.
