Episode cast overview:
Austin Tichenor ...


Wealthy widow Rosemary Tennant is found dead in the gutter outside the 'temple' of her 'psychic guide' Kristina Frye, a despicable fraud in Jane's eyes. Rosemary lived with her children Clara and Travis Tennant, a troubled teenager missing for 10 days, and philander photographer Jeremy Hale. She was about to change her will, presumably disinheriting Travis 'to shake him up', but in favor of which outsider? Patrick dissects all relationships and sets a double-bottomed trap. Written by KGF Vissers

real or fake?
9 November 2010 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

As far as I can tell, most of the creators of this show think that real psychics don't exist, they're either conmen or deluding themselves, or both. So Jane regards any conmen or manipulators as a kind of colleagues. Not as good as him, but basically in the same racket. Loads of fun.

But THIS episode treats it as if its real. In this episode Jane is a real psychic who just pretends it's all hookum. Probably writer/co-producer Gary Glasberg believes in this stuff in his personal life and twisted the vision of the show to promote his personal beliefs. Or maybe his producer vision kicked in and he figured that since a large segment of the audience actually believes in psychics, it would be good economy to throw them a bone.

Either way, this episode is a betrayal of the rest of the creators, and of intelligent viewers.
