A good episode BUT they sure made Peggy behave uncharacteristically stupid.
26 July 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Last Rites for Miss Emma" is a very good episode and it would have earned an 8 or even 9 if they'd written Peggy's part better. However, uncharacteristically, she behaves a bit foolishly in this one--which makes little sense because she's usually so wise.

The show begins with a group of thugs robbing a shipment of morphine from a warehouse. In the process of trying to stop the robbery, one of the employees, Floyd Brown (Robert Hooks), is shot. The gunshot wound wasn't horrible and he quickly recovers. In the process of the investigation, Peggy (Mannix's secretary) falls for Brown--and it's no surprise, as he's single, handsome and folks say he's a hero for trying to stop the robbery. Naturally, the insurance company covering the company hires Mannix to investigate and he comes up with some very interesting conclusions. I'd say more, but just don't want to spoil things. Suffice to say that aside from Peggy acting dumb, the show is quite original and exciting.

By the way, when Floyd Brown meets Peggy's young son, he says "...he's another O.J. Simpson...". At the time, this certainly was made as a complement--now it just seems very ironic.
