A dying man confesses to the murder of Cannon's wife and child, but he dies before explaining his motive - From
16 October 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

If anyone has seen this series, the last thing you think you would do is actually become emotional any cry during one of the episodes! After watching the series for a number of years and seeing Cannon bounce people into swimming pools and bully his way into homes this episode was an unexpected treat. I shed a tear each time I watch that first scene! I never even though about the fact that Cannon could have been married once or even had a child.

The acting and writing are indicative why this show had such a good run and attracted so many celebrity guests.

This series is a must for reruns.
