  • David's ex-girlfriend, Gillian, hires the Blue Moon to protect her from her husband whom she wants to divorce. David falls back in love with Gillian and checks out of the Blue Moon to attend to Gillian's needs. This leaves Maddie to unveal the truth regmoreless

    This was a crushing episode for us viewers because David chooses Gillian over the agency (metaphorically Maddie). And Maddie doesn’t get jealous – she just treats it like any case: find out the truth and present the facts to the client. I would’ve liked the writers to include more worry/sadness/jealousy from Maddie regarding Davids true love for this other woman. Instead, she just says she feels something isn’t “right” about Gillian. To which, David replies, “You’re jealous aren’t you?’ But the line feels thrown in and not plausible given the story’s direction because throughout Maddie only seemed hell-bent on cracking the case - helping the police answer the question…was there one or two bullets fired?moreless
  • Manipulation, deception and murder. Isn't love grand?

    David's former girlfriend appears at the agency to ask for help recovering missing property. Pretty soon, David winds up taking a personal approach to the case. He is furious that, during his earlier involvement with Gillian, she moved out with no notice. Shortly, however, old feelings return and he wants to go back to to the woman who is in the last throes of an endangered marriage.



    Something doesn't seem quite right to Maddie, who meets Harlan Armstrong and isn't convinced he's the heartless cad Gillian has made him out to be. David thinks Maddie is really motivated by jealousy of his relationship. There may be more to her suspicions, as is apparent when Harlan winds up dead.



    David is reluctant to listen to advice as evidence leads back to the widow Armstrong. It takes revelations uncovered at Harlan's funeral to shake David out of his fog.



    A hearse chase and much upheaval later, the truth will out and justice is done. David learns who's really on his side--although it's still beyond him to admit it just yet.



    Dana Delaney is stellar as the beguiling and creepy love interest.



    A provocative and memorable episode unafraid to look into the good and ugly sides of the characters' natures. Contains the funniest ending ever.



    Breaking up is easy. Dying is hard.moreless
