Seth's old friend, actor David North, returns to Cabot Cove to try out a play in the local playhouse. At auditions for the minor roles, Lyman Taggart gives a terrible reading but is convinced the director and North are out to get him. At dinner that night, Taggart shows up again and threatens North. Meanwhile, North's former manager Eric Benderson shows up and moves in. As Seth tries to reassure a hard-drinking North, Taggart tries to enlist Jessica's help to get him in the play, and threatens her when she brushes him off. When Taggart crashes a cast party, Benderson throws him out. Later, Seth finds Benderson injured in the theater, and he later dies. Taggart comes out of a room at the Lighthouse Motel, and as Sheriff Metzger chases him, Jessica notices the motel room is burning. Jessica thinks North might be in danger and they rush to his hotel, where they smell gas and Metzger pulls an unconscious North out of his room. Jessica and Seth think it was an attempted suicide. Jessica comes to the theater to catch the conscience of the murderer with new pages to the play.- Written by mama.sylvia
