Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 3
AIRED:
Sarita, who was killed by the murderer in last week's Killer's Game, chooses Mervin as the lead investigator because "he thinks logically and he will do well". With only three women left - Sam, Meryl and Mel - the girls think there is a male conspiracy against them. The killer left a clue for Andrew in the Killer's Game - a pillbox. The investigators are also given the information that builder Trevor Dobie is the father of Catherine's daughter Anya. Mervin forms the teams. Team 1 will be Richard and Meryl. They will interview Trevor and find out if he knows he is the father. He will be at Jennifer Wilmington's antique shop so the investigators will also quiz her about the antique pill box. Team 2 - Nick, Ruiri and Andrew - will interview Jay Wilmington again about the break in to his boat. Team 3 - Sam and Mel - will visit the reclusive George Hawick, find out what he knows about Catherine and why he was trying to call her. First out are Team 2. They head to Jay's houseboat but find that Goldie is with him. They interview the suspects together and Goldie storms out when she hears that her sister has stayed on the boat before. Jay Wilmington tells the Investigators that he and Catherine were 'just friends'. He then gets a phone call from Dean Garretty, who says he has taken some pills. The investigators rush to his location with Jay. Dean is frightened and runs upstairs and when Jay tries to talk to him he falls from a height onto boxes below. Dean is unconscious and is driven away in an ambulance. Meanwhile, Team 1 head to Jennifer's antique shop. Trevor Dobie tells the Investigators that he has no idea who the father of Catherine's child is, and that he once had a one night stand with Catherine. They break the news that he is Anya's father and he seems pleased, though he doesn't want them to tell anyone. They show Jennifer the pill box. She identifies it as her own and wants it back, but Meryl explains they need to hold on to it as it is evidence. Team 3 set off to interview George Hawick. He lives in isolation on an island that's occasionally cut off from the mainland by the tide. He explains that he last saw Catherine on the morning of the wedding when she was practicing the Aria she was to play at the ceremony. He says she left around 10am, before the tide cut her off and he called her later to see how her playing had gone. He also implies that he wouldn't have minded if she had stayed. Although the rising tide could provide George with an alibi, he also has a boat and could have crossed to the mainland in it so he is still a suspect. When they leave Mel surmises that perhaps George was jealous of Catherine's relationship with Dean and could have followed her to the church and killed her. Back at the hospital, Team 2 talk to Jay. He says: "It's all Vanessa's fault" referring to Vanessa March, Catherine's baby sitter. The team wait to talk to Dean Garretty once he regains consciousness. After four hours they are allowed to see him. He tells them that Vanessa's pregnant, but he doesn't know if he's the father or not before he goes into convulsions. Back at HQ, the Investigators gather for their case conference. They discuss who may have strong motives to carry out the murder. They believe Goldie has a strong motive as she thinks Jay may have been having an affair with her sister, and Vanessa has a strong motive as she may be pregnant with Dean's baby and was jealous of Catherine. In the middle of the night the Investigators are woken up by the killer's grisly voice. The killer has hacked into the HQ computer and has a left a message about the locations for the next Killer's Game. Vanessa is questioned. It becomes apparant that she is not pregnant, and this was a lie she told Dean to get his attention. But she tells the Investigators another lie - by telling them that Dean picked up a pregnancy test at the chemist on the mornnig of Catherine's wedding. This is not true - it was Vanessa who picked up the pregnancy test, meaning she's no longer a suspect. Team 1 are taken off in a helicoptor to do an ariel reconnaissancee. After a while they establish that Catherine must have got a lift to the church from George Hawicks house. Meryl also spots a red object on a tree. When they land, they discover it is a blood stained coat. Inside is Tina Wells's wedding invitation and they conclude that it must be her jacket. In the final briefing, the chief congratulates Meryl for her good work and says that she has performed best out of all the Investigators so far. Team 1 pass for holding onto the pill box as evidence and for spotting the vital clue on the tree. Team 2 fail for forgetting to separate suspects before conducting an interview and Team 3 are failed for not telling the media anything at the press conference. The Chief once again conducts the group vote. The group vote for Andrew. Mervin, as team leader, casts his vote on Sam, saying that she should have organised the press conference better. Sam is upset by this as she had spoken to Mervin beforehand and he had advised her to say nothing. Andrew and Sam go to face the killer - SAM DOES NOT COME BACK!moreless
