Disappointing episode dealing with an heiress who really never was.
Upon her death, first believed to be a suicide, it is realized that
this woman did not exist. She really had invented some story about
herself and her alleged wealthy family.
The story becomes convoluted in that everyone was either fighting or liking one another and it was often too confusing to follow.
The very beginning where our heroine visits the home of her Alzheimer's stricken mother was excellent. It showed that at times the victims of this dreaded disease may have lucid moments. As for the rest of the show, it was anything but lucid.
This was a very forgettable episode.
The main thing that stood out for me was Carrie's/Poppy's accent, which kept slipping back and forth between more or less generic American and a southern drawl. I know Poppy's Australian, but her accent has been pretty consistent and unnoticeable up to this point. Did the writers suddenly decide Carrie was born in the South?
The case of the week concerned a snarky fashion/gossip blogger of the Perez Hilton variety. When the blogger vanishes, her arch-rival and her boyfriend are the most likely suspects. The missing blogger, however, turns out to be something other than she seemed. Has she been targeted because of her nasty gossip, or has something/someone from her past perhaps caught up with her?
The plot summary sounds OK, but the execution was not so hot. The story was unnecessarily convoluted, and the suspects and their friends were neither appealing nor compelling. Ho-hum.
One note: The writers draw attention to the past relationship between Carrie and Al in every episode, and they make clear that Carrie has some unresolved issues with Al and the reverse might also be true. I suspect that they're building up to a romantic encounter between the two of them before the end of the season. (It will, of course, go badly.)
