Chairman Elton Malone drops dead from the fast poison on an envelope he licks claiming it contains proof which other board member embezzled $300,000 from his charitable foundation, but it was a literally empty threat. Besides Community General administrator Norman Briggs, who seats on account of its free clinic funding, the board members -now murder suspects- are Mort Slater, Christine Shaw whose husband Charles is running for Congress and dodgy art investment broker Alexander Damon. The Sloanes look into Damon's faltering business, but he drops dead at Malone's funeral from a curare air-gun dart shot, and wasn't the thief. Amanda joins the Shaw election campaign and finds her financing fishy, but she drops dead at Damon's funeral and Charles redraws his candidature. Norman, whose job is now very precarious, believes Slater must be the killer, as his brewery is rumored in trouble; Jack knows Mort and goes snooping just when Steve does, and finds out he planned a torch job.

Four funerals and Norman Briggs
19 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a fascinating episode which has four funerals, and at each funeral there's a death in very, very mysterious circumstances, and we're left wondering who it could be.

Khrystyne Haje features in this episode, and she was excellent in Head of the Class, which I loved before Billy Connolly took over as teacher which pretty much signaled the end of that fine series.

Anyway, Michelle Phillips also appears. Also, one sub-plot of this episode is the tension between Jack and Norman, and by the end of the episode things get better for them thankfully. In fact, Jack saves Norman's life!
