.Toby (Craig Olejnik) and Oz (Ennis Esmer) arrive at a homicide scene where a Russian Consul General is found dead and the diplomat's middle son, Dmitry (Elias Toufexis), confesses to his murder. When McCluskey (Lauren Lee Smith) arrives to take over the investigation, Toby reveals she may need more than a simple confession to close the case. Despite Dmitry's confession and representation by lawyer-brother Yuri (Dmitry Chepovetsky), Toby and McCluskey believe someone else may have been present at the murder scene, and discover Dmitry has a 14 younger autistic brother, Pavel (Jesse Bostick). In order to get to the truth, Toby and McCluskey must navigate their way through the Volkov family secrets while Toby attempts to communicate with Pavel through his obsession with his toy trains, believing it is the key to solving the murder. A new gurney is tested at EMS after complaints of back injuries, but fails its field test after Oz apparently injures his back employing it. Written by Shaftesbury Films

wonder why no others have reviewed before
1 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one excellent Canadian show, and not just here but getting more from other countries watching this too, just hope it gets more opportunity to be watched as some of my US friends really like it.

This epi deals with brothers one who is diff from the other 2. Pavlo is protected by one brother who loves him and the other decided to frame him, may love him but loves himself better. It was the father of them who was murdered.

I have had friends with siblings who are diff and well have come to the conclusion that those who we see/know are diff are really not much diff than us, its just more noticeable in some than others. The way they had Toby connect with him was done well.

I really hope that "they" keep this show going there is much more story that can be done with it, hmmm wonder if they take any stories from the lay persons like us/moi. WELL SOMEONE HAD TO BE FIRST TO WRITE A SHOW REVIEW FOR THE LISTENER, GUESS IT WAS ME. take care all
