So Many Questions, Starting With 'Rachel', 7 July 2008
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I don't understand the title to this episode, as there is no "good child" that I saw, just a chip-on-her-shoulder young woman who is part of a witness protection program and appears to becomes a victim herself after her parents are murdered.

This is a very complicated episode as the parents - the ones escaping mobsters from Buffalo and living under assumed names in Queens - are the targets. However, the adopted young woman, "Rachel," winds up being a key part of the story, too. As you watch this, she becomes a suspect, too, which is why I said "appears" in the above paragraph. The writers keep you guessing regarding her characters. Maybe she killed them. Perhaps it was the mob in Buffalo, who figured out where the "stoolies" lived. Maybe it was the people who claim they are Rachel's "real parents." Are they for real? If so, what's there connection in this whole deal? Are they in on the murder, or just one of them, or are all three? Could these real parents even kill Rachel for her money?

So many questions. Greed, false accusations, murder and a lot more are involved in here, which is why it gets confusing at times.

Oddly, the key to solving the case winds up being something to do with kleptomania. Yup, you never know what will pop up in these stories.
