Jessica isn't looking forward to tell Cabot Cove that her historical research for Founder's Day proves the captain was actually a pirate and fought on the British side, against Washington's troops. Businessman Charles Woodley lands in hospital after the surging of a car without driver which seemed to be pursuing local Ethan Cragg. Local inventor Daniel O'Brien, who devised a remote control system for cars before he was fired, denies having agreed to a meeting with his former employer Woodley, shortly after the car under remote control strikes again, killing Woodley's 50% Boston business partner, Dean Merrill. Daniel's heir, Tony Holiday, is back in town to present his bride, Leslie Andler Sheriff Amos Tupper happily 'allows' Jessica to 'observe for her next book', in fact doing the sleuthing with and without Amos, who arrests Daniel just for being most likely to have controlled the killer car....

The arcade game Ethan is playing in the grocery is 'Spy Hunter' by Bally Midway. At the beginning of the episode, Jessica is seen riding her bicycle past a sign that reads: CABOT COVE POP. 3560. Jessica does not have a driver's licence, and walks or bikes anywhere she needs to go in Cabot Cove. She also jogs every single morning. This episode features the introduction of Cabot Cove citizens Cora McIntyre, who works at the local grocery (McIntyre's), Daniel O'Brien, his nephew Tony Holiday, and their close family friend, Katie Simmons. Daniel has lived in Cabot Cove for six years, and is still considered a stranger by many of the long-time residents, because he wasn't born there. This is the second mention of the never-seen Letitia, the phone operator of Cabot Cove. See more
