paranoid chess master
13 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

It's hard to follow the topic in this fuzzy episode. A young, innocent lady on a trip from Milwakee to meet her soon to be in-laws is murdered and nothing in the family could link to the perpetrator (except at first the estranged bug-killer brother in law). It takes time to Goren and Eames to figure out. Some evidence lead them to a disturbed middle- aged man (Robert Carradine, he likes to play nerd-like characters), a fugitive because his endless passion for chess drove him crazy and lead him to break the law just to play a chess re-match against a soviet rival.

I feel pity for his supportive sister, unable to give him the last hug, when he broke into pieces the Rubik's-like cube made by him decades before.
