Episode Summary

EDIT

It is a dark and stormy night. A lonely light burns in the tower of stately Beaton Hall. Suddenly, lightening flashes across the sky and a bloodcurdling scream is heard. Chauncey Beaton runs down the halls of the mansion from an unseen pursuer. He comes to a Juliet balcony and realizes he has nowhere else to go. Murdoch arrives at the scene, where Chauncey's body lies crumpled on the paving stones. He obviously fell from the balcony but did he jump or was he pushed?

  • Not the best Murdoch has ever offered...

    7.5
    ...and not the worst either because "Enid" from last season was not in it. But other than that, I was mostly underwhelmed.



    The premise was old; it's pretty much been done to death and an 1895 setting didn't do anything to improve upon that. The main culprit was painfully obvious, though the end connections were a bit of a surprise. The final scene was so "Hollywood" that it was totally unfitting it should be in a heretofore wonderfully inventive series.



    THE bright spot in the episode was "Crabtree" and his hilarious imagination. If it's not the ghosts and goblins and zombies of tonight, it's the martians and such from last season, but his responses/reactions are always fun. Add Higgins to the mix (which was also nice to see in this episode) and, well, perhaps the two of them should not be on patrol together!



    So, Murdoch creative team: you had your "week off". Back to work for next week please...moreless
