  • Jessica Fletcher, Family Psychiatrist

    8.3
    Jessica is up to her old tricks again, solving murder like a master sleuth, but thrown into this episode is a little taste of Jessica as family counselor. Sheriff Metzger's ex-con brother shows up in Cabot Cove, and Jessica goes to work, orchestrating a reconciliation between the estranged brothers. Her ability to read people is especially useful in this unusual focus on a supporting character. Although we see a lot of Metzger in Murder, She Wrote, this is one of the few times that we get a closer, more personal look at the character and his life outside of his interactions with Jessica. A stellar performance, with just the right touch of sentimentality.moreless
