  • Meet some more of the residents of Cabot Cove

    This episode is unique because it introduces William Windom as Dr. Seth Hazlitt, Jessica's friend and part of the trio, along with Jessica and Amos, who stumble into murder in Cabot Cove. Windom remained with "M,SW" all the way through the final season.

    As for the mystery, the story about the planned development and the protest is good, but in my opinion the identity of the murderer came out of left field. This was one of the few times I felt the writers were not playing fair with the clues, and you'd be hard pressed to figure this one out on your own.

    Still, it is a nice Cabot Cove mystery, quirky enough and revealing of the town and its occupants that made it such a great setting for the show.
