Jessica must find out the truth when the ruthless owner of a periodical is murdered.


The title is a play on the famous rhyme "Solomon Grundy, born on a Monday."

Victim: Christopher Bundy

Killer: Vanessa D'Argento

Cause of death: Gunshot.

Motive: Hated Bundy, her stepfather, feeling he was a poor replacement for her real one.


When the family meets Jessica, the nephew of Mr. Bundy is using a home video camera to record his sister and mother playing croquet. Several camera angles are shown as if to be shot from this home video camera yet a boom mic is visible for a split second at the top of the screen.

When Grady kneels down as he and Jessica are searching the upstairs hallway, a spike mark can be seen on the floor behind them.

At the end scenes, Millicent is driving a red car and approaches Jessica, Chester and Grady. Crew members and lightning equipment are seen reflected in the car.
