Did You Know?


During the mock murder, the two suspects are named after Dorothy's siblings, Phil and Gloria. See more »


Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: Perhaps. But they are both murderers.
Sophia Petrillo: Sit down, Dorothy. Don't make a fool of yourself.
Marlowe: You care to explain?
Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: In the first place, it is unlikely that Gloria murdered her father. Statistics show that patricide is overwhelmingly a male crime, although daughters frequently murder their mothers!

The Case of the Libertine Belle (#7.2)
24 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Blanche and the rest of the girls are going for a Murder Mystery weekend. After the lunch where Dorothy solves the murder, Blanche goes to the hotel room of her coworker and finds him with a steak knife in his chest. She is the prime suspect as she is the one who was in the room, but turns out that it was all fun of the event as well and Dorothy solves it again.

A pretty fun episode, such episodes always make me want to go and attend one of those mystery events.

Loved the scene of Dorothy with a knife on Sophia's neck and it was pretty twisted and fun.
