Detective Murdoch finds that the man behind a flying machine that crashes in Toronto is none other than his old nemesis, James Pendrick. He learns that Pendrick is hoping to win a $1 million prize for the first controlled flight. A body is found in the rubble of the crash but someone is clearly out to steal his invention. Murdoch also has to deal with Ottawa-based spymaster Terence Meyers who says it's all a national security matter. Meanwhile, Julia returns from Vienna intent on practicing psychiatry. She's also hoping to have her marriage to D'Arcy annulled. Written by garykmcd

Invention like an airplane
21 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is about a invention like an airplane that crashed into a busy city. The invention was made by Mr Pendrick the inventor that Murdoch knows from the past.

It is revealed that the Canadian government is watching Pendrick and they want his invention for war use. Pendrick does not want his inventions used for war. The Americans are given a bad name because Mr Myers a pompous government official goes to Murdoch to demand information but he won't tell Murdoch anything.

Inspector Brackenreid is bossed around by his wife who is like all the women in this series, bossy, snotty and rude. He joins the military at his age and then changes his mind as realizes the responsibility is to take care of his family.

Pendrick has another plane and he is knocked out with Murdoch and it is stolen.

One part in this episode is Murdoch flying this invention with the help of Pendrick who is injured. They flyin above the earth over a waterfall, trees and grass. The excitement of Murdoch and the music makes this a really beautiful part of the episode.

Dr Ogden is separated from her husband and it does not take long for her to kiss Murdoch. She is looking to get an annulment so she can marry Murdoch who is a Catholic. She defines annulment as not being consummated by them but she lies so she can marry Murdoch and asks her husband Darcy if he will accept an annulment, Darcy says yes. Murdoch does not seem to care as long as he gets Dr Ogden.

First this relationship is to slow now to fast since the last episode.
