When Jessica is comparing Carrie's handwritten letter to her Last Will and Testament, the supposed "will" is actually what appears to be a page from a transcript of one of Jessica's books. The "will" starts with "It was a dark and stormy night in Cabot Cove. I sat in my favorite rocker contemplating the evenings happenings with anxiety and regret."
