Goofs[edit | edit source]
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 ?
