Another Scam Artist At Work
4 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Voodoo, or faking it, is the topic in this crime story in which three people are killed. Two of them are paralyzed and wrapped up as mummies, suffocating to death. Another is poisoned. This is all because the "spirits were angry" at these people, according to "Lydia Wyatt" a.k.a. The Healer, or should I say "Healer wannabe." Sherri Saum guest stars as Lydia.

Sadly, other victims of the scam turn out to be cancer patients, who think they are getting well.....until they don't need Lydia The Nurse. Then their lithium-spiked water is taken away and they don't feel so good anymore. I wonder if that is true: water, spiked with Lithium, will enhance your mood and general feeling of well-being? It does, according to the program, and also elevates your white blood cells which is a good sign.....but all the time, you aren't getting better. That's part of the story in this episode.

Pretty low when you try to fool people dying of cancer. In fact, that's about as low as it gets. Some people will do anything for money, I suppose.

On a lighter note, the episode almost pits the two Major Crime Casee detectives against one another, too. Barak is a believer of this witchcraft stuff while Logan laughs it off as nonsense. Neither one will give in. At least the exchanges between them provide some dry humor to the story.
