Back in Cabot Cove to orchestrate a surprise birthday dinner for Seth, Jessica is drawn into what looks like a small-time theft by Charlie Garrett and an apparent Mob connection.
When the result of the horse race is being reported on the radio, the horses Swift Prince and Victor Way are mentioned. Both horses were part of Murder, She Wrote: Bloodlines (1993).
Victim: Oscar Gandile
Killer: Harvey Terhune
Cause of Death: Bludgeoned with a statuette
Motive: Panicked after Gandile walked in on him while he was trying to steal some petty cash to pay his sister Libby's student loans and Gandile mistakenly thought he had discovered his smuggling operation.
About halfway through, Walter Perry passes as sign announcing the "Future Sight" rather than "Site" of the Cabot Cove Historical Museum. A prescient repository of the past ?
The accident was in fact Seth's fault. Think, once Charlie had seen Seth's car back-up, he would have honked his horn before the impact occurred, so when the impact had happened, if it was Charlie was to blame, why didn't Seth honk ?
