    This was another unbelievable episode with a twist on a very old cliché. While I haven\'t been able to see the whole episode, I did catch the last 25 minutes. Enough to figure out who was the actual killer and why.

    It was clever when Brenda unmasked the murderer by grilling the original suspects, a bunch of immature adults who never grew out their playpens except physically. The family lawyer in defense of their actions actually gave himself away without realizing what he did. I saw what she was doing all along and you know what. The oldest son who was giving Brenda that hungry \"look\" appeared to have realized it as well judging by the knowing expression on his face.

    The DA could learn a few things from her; after all, he did not read between the lines.

    Very Columboesque.
