3.4 is ***1/2

Since when will the police department pay a psychic to give out information in a murder investigation?

Christina Lahti reappears as Steve's mother and really nothing is accomplished regarding why she didn't finish off Wo-Fat. Everyone watching this including Steve does not believe her explanation that 3 gunshots went awry.

Today's case was another ironic episode. When a polo player is decapitated, it turns out that he was the wrong victim. He had changed places with the intended victim. Or, at least we're made to think that.

We then hear about the intended victim's kidnapping at the age of 10. What mother wouldn't want to pay for her child to be safely returned, especially when the people are so affluent. This in itself set off a chain of weird events.
