Nick and Honey Addams return home to find their baby-sitter, Jess Lake, murdered. She was tied to a bed and indeed often posed for bondage and fetish shots for photographer Marion Hammond. She also worked in a university lab with her boyfriend Gideon's father Dr. Massey, who is divorced from his unfeeling wife Stanza. Honey admits that Nick does not have an alibi but he seems to have no link to the next victim, Jess's house mate Silas, whose corpse is also arranged in the style of one of Marion's photos. Lewis finds himself tracking a killer who is a seemingly respectable citizen but who has a split personality rendering them an obsessive. Written by don @ minifie-1

It's getting hokey
30 July 2012 | by (SAN FRANCISCO, CA) – See all my reviews

I streamed all previously available episodes and they intrigued me with their very tight, intellectual and sometimes convoluted plots with believable characters and plot twists, but this one was a giant waste of time. The two murders were extravagant and head scratching with a lot of miscasted overacting and finally when the end came it fell into complete lack of credibility. At one minute Lewis is calling the woman and leaving a message that she should call him back and the next minute he is behind the culprit in the nick of time. How did he silently get up into her loft? Was he next door when he called her? Then the final, final scene with the erstwhile cut-off mother/wife appeared at her son's bedside to tearfully be cry "my son, my son" was total soap opera. Why was she cut-off in the first place. Whoever wrote or allowed this episode to air should be banned. Very disappointing.
