Episode Summary

EDIT

The dead body of Cecil Fox, a hateful reprobate hanged for the killing of Justice Horace Mead, is being examined by Dr. Ogden when he suddenly jumps up off the table and runs out of the morgue. Det. Murdoch revisits the case evidence for clues to track him down but ends up with more questions than answers.

  • A 113 year old debate that still has no clear-cut resolution.

    ...But wait. Wasn't the rule of thumb that the prisoner went free if he/she lived through the hanging? So why did Fox feel the need to fake his death and then run...aging poor Dr. Ogden about 50 years in the process?!



    ...At any rate, it appears that imperfect systems populated by imperfect "professionals" judging imperfect people just won't go away.



    Which side of the hole in the floor I'm on is not relevant, but this Murdoch outing was a really decent visitation to both sides of a debate that just won't quit. The bad guy was caught, the less bad guy went free, and no conclusions to the debate were drawn; yet the awful end-burden for all parties was acknowledged in the less than happy ending.



    Perhaps the message, if there was one, was not to judge. Quite a feat for a very judgemental humanity...moreless
