Storyline

A young man's corps found on train tracks, crushed and scattered, at first sight from the nineteenth century, yet recently killed, fits missing Amish adolescent Levi Yoder. He was in DC for his Rumspringa, a single period outside the closed archaic hyper-devout community to taste temptation with mate Joseph Beachy and leave or commit to return for life, and marry his Amish beloved Sarah. Fellow pianist Sweets figures out the stones hidden under his bed are a practice 'keyboard', fancy detective work he was exceptionally gifted and auditioning at the National Conservatory and living with two 'English' musicians but died form a deep fall.

Trivia

Some scenes of the show are filmed in the same street sets as "How I Met Your Mother". If you see carefully, when leaving Michelle with her boyfriend, Dr. Saroyan passes by the McLaren's pub, recognizable for the basement window and the stoop leading to Ted's building. See more »

Goofs

When the parents of the victim watch the recording of Levi playing the piano, framed pictures can be seen hanging on the wall of their home. This is not typical of an Amish home. See more »

Not what you might expect
10 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

B&B investigate the death of a young piano prodigy, who just happens to be Amish. This leads them to Pennsylvania's Lancaster County and a meeting with various Amish folks, including the dead boy's parents. It was hard to watch this and not to think of the Harrison Ford Amish rime drama or the Tim Allen comedy where he is on the run from the law and poses as an Amish man. The solution to this particular mystery is incredibly sad, by the way, so watch this with a box of tissues close at hand. No Amish were harmed in the making of this episode. That's because no Amish actually appear in it. They do not produce actors and shy away from the camera.
