Jessica is met by Nancy Landon, who claims that her late husband, Frank, was the father of Nancy's son Steve. While Jessica investigates this shocking claim, Nancy herself is arrested for the murder of contractor Ben Olston, whom Steve had a disagreement with, and Jessica takes the case to prove her innocence.
S. Scott Bullock, who has a small role as a taxi driver, is better known as a voice actor, having done regular roles on shows such as Captain Planet and the Planeteers and Danny Phantom.
Victim: Ben Olston
Killer: Cynthia Olston
Cause of death: Gunshot
Motive: Was fed up with his various affairs, including his recent one with Dawn Bickford.
The only major goof that was in this episode was that with Steve Landon, with him knowing that it was a school & the buidling of the school would endanger the lives of children, is that Dawn Bickford, Ben Olston were a-okay in harming children in order for them to conspire to cover-up the endangerment of children & that they had no guilt or remorse of endangering children.
