On his deathbed, Jeffrey Roundhill confesses to having killed his wife Evelyn some 8 years before and tells Murdoch where to find her remains. Dr. Grace confirms the identity of the skeleton as that of Mrs. Roundhill but the manner in which she died doesn't match Roundhill's statement. Further investigation reveals that Roundhill was actually in Winnipeg on the day his wife disappeared. Julia recalls a case, that of Amelia Thompson, who was killed just as Roundhill describes. At the time, Murdoch was convinced that her husband was responsible for his wife's death. Could the two men have killed each other's spouse? Meanwhile, George Crabtree hasn't seen much of Emily lately and takes Leslie Garland to task for interfering in their relationship. Written by garykmcd

Nun: Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Head Nurse: Mother Isidore, you called for me?
Nun: He's taken a turn for the worse. He's burning up with fever, and he's been severely distressed.
Head Nurse: It's only natural, given his situation. We're doing everything we can to make him comfortable.
Nun: It's not his physical discomfort I'm talking about. It's his moral distress. Something is weighing on his conscience.

A man in the hospital confesses to murder
7 May 2015 | by ctyankee1See all my reviews

A man who is sick in the hospital confesses to a murder. He tells Murdoch where the body is and that it is his wife. The problem is a woman is found dead and it is not his wife and the woman died in a different manner. The man that confessed had some kind of brain disease so they don't know how much of his confession is reliable.

Murdoch reopens the case. Dr Odgen helps him.When they first started working together there was the body of a woman found with the description of the way she was killed just that the dieing man confessed to.

There seems to be something going on with Dr Emily Grace. She seems sad and avoiding Officer Crabtree who also is feeling rejected. He thinks it is because of Mr Garland but I think there is more to it than that.

Murdoch has to solve the death of two married women. Originally he thought it was one of the husbands. Now he is trying to find out who was where who knows, who and if there was a ties between the two husbands.

The man the killed Dr Ogden's husband Darcy Garland had been taken to another place and something happened. They did not know if he survived, well he escaped Mr Gillies is his name and he leaves Dr Ogden a threatening letter regarding her and Murdoch.
