A former student of Jessica's becomes involved in a love triangle that ends in murder.


Jayne Meadows is credited as "Jayne Meadows Allen," Herb Edelman is credited as "Herbert Edelman," and Leigh J. McCloskey is credited as "Leigh McCloskey."

First episode where the victim is one of Jessica's former students.

With Elizabeth who wanted to marry Norman, & she knew to stay away from Roger Adiano, why would she allow herself to buy him anything, especially clothing for that matter & also be willing to allow herself to give in to Roger . Plus, here's the topper & that's this: Isn't it very odd that in the flashback that not once did we see Norman entering the apartment, meaning, in other flashbacks, i.e. in the episode If The Frame Fits, the killer brought up the pizza cutter at the services of his wife but yet he couldn't say anything about the scene of the crime once the body was found, I kind of doubt that Norman would use the lipstick to deface anything much less trash the place, all because who bought what for who ?

Victim: Elizabeth Gordon

Killer: Norman Amberson

Cause of death: Strangulation via scarf.

Motive: Anger over her seeing an actor he assumed she was cheating on him with.
