Storyline

When a body is found handcuffed to the steering wheel of a burned car in the alley behind a Drag Queen Cabaret, the CBI crew is on the scene to investigate. A clue in the alley leads Jane to dressing room of the drag queens where he meets Glennda Snow who is the "Queen Mother" of the ensemble. She admits to being in the alley shortly before the murder but the other drag queens say she was back in the dressing room before the time of the murder. Although she is cleared of involvement in the murder, Jane still suspects she knows more than she is admitting. The CBI team end up relying on Glennda as a material witness when trying to determine which of their three suspects is guilty. Just when you think the case has been successfully wrapped up, Jane reveals a surprise twist that sheds a whole new light on the events that transpired in the alley the night of the murder.

My New Favourite Episode
30 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

I just had the opportunity to see this episode on DVD. I missed it the first time around because I had gotten so far behind in watching the season but this episode in particular makes me regret having missed the original run. This is an absolutely beautiful episode from the stand point of the storyline which should be shown in film studies classes as to how to make a socially relevant episode without being heavy handed and also from a visual stand point. The performers in this episode were all particularly beautiful and their commitment to the roles never veered into the parody or anything other than sheer respect for the characters. This episode with a beautiful twist towards the end has easily become my new favourite episode of a wonderful series.
