Storyline

The Sloane's are none too happy to hear the DA had to cut a deal (life instead of the death penalty), with a female murderer to ensure conviction for Frederick Wilson (she's now the prime witness against him in exchange for the deal). She's murdered on her way into the Courthouse by a female shooter in a wheelchair, who hid the gun in the arm of the chair, and then fled the scene. Meanwhile, Steve - who's convinced he's been seeing Lily, the woman who died in is arms on their second date (S.7 Ep.18), ends up meeting and dating her doppelganger Abby; it turns out she's Lilys' twin sister, separated by adoption in childhood (or is she?). The pace revs up when the "tangled web" (metaphorically and literally - the stamp on Fredericks' heroin is a spider) between the Sloanes', Steve's partner Detective Banks, Joan (the wheelchair assassin), Frederick and Abby collide.

Intrigue as someone familiar comes into Steve Sloane's life
12 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the third last episode of season 8 of Diagnosis Murder, and it is full of intrigue with memories of Steve's former kind-of-flame coming back through a doppelganger that appears in Steve's frame of vision.

There's more to it than we think, and the truth unravels in a tragic way. It's a shame Diagnosis Murder didn't continue for many more seasons as it is one of my favorites.

This episode was screened at the beginning of the Bush-Cheney era, and ironically, Scott Baio, who was in the first two seasons, became a strong Trumps supporter.

Adam J. Tomei as Tick Tock was a stand out in this episode of Diagnosis Murder.
