The episode begins with a woman finding a strange person coming into
her home from the shadows. She tells him to stop...he doesn't...she
shoots him. Soon, her husband comes home and finds the guy--and
promises to hide the body. Now at this point, I said to myself "why not
call the police--he WAS in your house late at night and she did warn
him before shooting!". Well, inexplicably, they didn't do this.
A bit later, the woman's mother comes to Mannix for help...not because
of the shooting but because the mother is worried about her flaky
alcoholic daughter (and the daughter CLEARLY is an alcoholic). Mannix
gets involved and soon the cops find the body and put 2 and 2 together.
Can Mannix tease apart what REALLY happened?
This episode isn't bad but isn't very good (especially for a debut
episode for a new season). One problem is that the plot isn't that
interesting or believable. And another is when Joe reunites the accused
killer with her young daughter. Why is this a problem? Because they
child MIGHT be better off in an orphanage than with a woman with a
severe substance abuse problem. While bringing the small child into the
woman's life might help the woman, what about the child? Troubling to
say the least.
