Jessica searches for Seth when he suddenly disappears and fresh bloodstains in his office indicate foul play.


One of the folders seen in Dr. Seth Hazlett's patient files was headed "D. Sharpless". Don Sharpless was the sound mixer for this and many other episodes in this series.

In Murder, She Wrote: The Trouble with Seth (1994), Kim Johnston Ulrich & Ben Masters play adversaries and years later they play a married couple on the soap opera, Passions (1999).

Paul Mantee plays a character 'Leo Fender'. Leo Fender was the name of the man who founded Fender Guitars and made the first mass produced solid body electric guitars.

Goofs: Leo Fender went by an alias in this episode, the alias, Ronald Olson, was only mentioned to Connie where she worked with Evan Rafferty, so when she heard the alias, no one knew that the alias was Leo Fender, so how would she know who had what name ?

When Will Rafferty was on somewhat of a date with Julia, the C initial stood for Cardozo, in which Will had brought up was his mother's maiden name, the B. initial that Julia had brought up stood for Barton, Stanley Barton was the alias that Evan Rafferty was using in 1974, Will had brought up that Evan slash Stanley was his dad, so that means that Julia's mom remarried & her new name was Barton, Will's dad, so Will was somewhat on a date with his half-sister, wasn't he ?

Victim: Leo Fender

Killer: Connie Anderson

Cause of Death: Stabbed in the back with a letter opener

Motive: To protect Evan Rafferty, after Leo tried to kill him to prevent being exposed.

With no goofs for this episode. I'm adding one. Connie that one brought up online birdwatching, all she heard was the name of the alias that Leo Fender was using, there is no story to explain how she would know that the alias was being used by Leo Fender, now did she ?
