Very Good Twist In Here Elevates Show
22 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A French stud, with the famous Dupont name, is founded murdered by woman who was to meet him in this hotel room for a, let's say, a night out. Instead she finds the guy lying on the floor covered in blood. He turns out to be a big con man from Europe with a real history of pretending to be "old money" when he was far from that.

An air of sleaze to this episode when showing the high-society women (Liberals in the entertainment business like to show the ultra-rich as bad guys, even though they are among the financial elites themselves.) That's what this story is all about, rich people ticked off because they were taken by some con man, so they hire a guy to teach this bum a severe lesson.

The best thing about this story is that twist after about 25 minutes of the show when the police and us find out the victim is not who we all thought he was. "Dupont" knew someone was setting him and up and sent someone else up to the room, where the hit-man (so to speak) beat up the wrong man. Also, the thug didn't kill him, only beat him up. Someone came along and finished the job! The question is "who?" (I don't want to give everything away.)

That twist turned this from slightly-below par episode into a much better one as the people in the Major Case Unit try to flush out the killer....and Goren uses "ego" as the bait.
