Cabot Cove’s latest night deputy goes above and beyond his public duties serving the women of Cabot Cove and winds up needing Jessica's help when he becomes the prime suspect in his wife’s murder.


The title is an allusion to the film If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium (1969). The film follows a group of travelers on a trip across seven European countries in 18 days.

Second episode where the murder was committed in self-defense; the first was Footnote to Murder.

First appearances of Eve Simpson, Phyllis Grant & Loretta Spiegel.

Victim: Audrey Martin

Killer: George Tibbits

Cause of death: Gunshot

Motive: Accidentally shot while struggling with a gun after George broke into the house to steal Audrey’s winning lottery ticket.


At the very end, there is a still picture of Jessica's house. It is clearly dark out and various room lights are on. A second later, Amos knocks on the back kitchen door. Jessica opens it and there is bright sunshine outside.

Jessica's back patio could have been enclosed & have lighting when Amos showed up at night, so the goof of it being bright sunshine at night when Amos knocked on it for when Seth was making Escargot is no goof, now was it ?

When Seth Hazlitt is examining Audrey Martin's body, he opens her left eye to look at her pupil. As he does this, her other eye opens.

When it came to the lottery tickets, Ideal Molloy mentioning her age being 30, Phyllis brings up she's 33, on Loretta's tack board, she has the ticket number 34 through 39. Not once did Eve or Audrey even mentioning being 31 & the other bringing up that she's 32, so how did Jessica deduce that Audrey had the ticket number 32 ?
