Storyline

When one of the patients at an upscale treatment center dies in a fire, Mayo and his team swing into action. The dead man was a drug addict being treated and mentored by a smarmy administrator, who may have convinced the man to leave the center his trust fund of millions of pounds. Mayo is joined in the case by Alex Jones, with whom he "has a past." The first thing the team must discover is whether the death was murder or a suicide made to like like one. But then a second death, this time obviously a murder, muddies the waters. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Goofs

The spelling of "ize" words turns out to be an important plot point and it seems that Mayo regards the spelling of words like "realize" with a "z" as being somehow inferior. As a linguistic pedant (he makes a good deal of fuss about words and their use throughout the episode), he would be aware that although "realise" is the more common modern UK spelling, genuine British pedants favour "realize" and don't dismiss it as a vulgar Americanization, but view it instead as the "proper" way to spell such words.
