Storyline

A woman's body washes ashore, whom Lt. Art Malcolm recognizes her as Joe Mannix' former girlfriend, Carol Lockwood. The forensic evidence suggests that she was killed during a boat explosion, possibly while in the company of a wealthy man with whom she also had a relationship. But as Mannix examines the evidence, he begins to suspect that Carol's death was more than just an accident -- perhaps even part of a sophisticated murder plot. Written by aldanoli

Not exactly a prize-winning script!
5 January 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, Peggy arrives late for work and Mannix seems miffed. Apparently, he doesn't remember the last episode where Peggy volunteered to pretend to be a prostitute and infiltrated the drug ring! Way to go Mannix!!

Anyway, Mannix soon learns that an old girlfriend washed up dead on the beach. Mannix, as usual, insists it's NOT some accident and the Lieutenant, as usual, insists that there's no case and Mannix should drop it. Like my comment above, I kept thinking 'why is Art arguing with Mannix...Mannis is ALWAYS right about these things'! When it turns out that the lady had been on a boat that exploded, Lt. Malcolm then says 'this sort of thing happens all the time'!!! Huh?! However, when the main suspect turns out to be played by Jason Evers, I knew it was murder as Evers ALWAYS played scum- bags...always! So the key for Mannix is proving this jerk did it...and that won't be easy.

A couple examples I gave above show this isn't the best written show of the series. Also, the notion that the baddie could jump from an airplane and land in the water safely in order to pretend that he, too, was on the boat seems poorly written. First, why such a ridiculously complicated scheme? Second, this is a VERY dangerous thing to attempt. If he parachuted, he easily could have become entangled and drowned. Or, jumping without a chute from a slow- moving plane is practically suicidal!! All in all not among the better episodes due to poor writing.
