    This is one of my favorite episodes because it contains all the Murder, She Wrote elements that fans love. First, it has the seemingly nice guy, who turns out to be a calculating killer. Second, it has the kindly, yet mildly sexist, bumbling police officer who seems to have no idea what he's doing and is lucky that Jessica is there to assist. Third, you have the victim who is so hated that Jessica herself probably considered killing her at one point. In addition to that, this episode offers an original murder method and clever plot to keep the viewer rivoted.moreless
