With all known foreign players canvas and absent for the most part, murder in the first season 1 Episode 5 hit a high for the series rating.
"Pants on fire" was a well paced hour that provided concrete answers and powered the case and the story forward. A suspect was marked off the coast of the list, while Erich Blunt has demonstrated his innocence through a lie detector test.
Who killed Cindy Strauss? The field reduced, but the culprit is still unknown.
The only part of the episode that I did not enjoy was the awkwardness between Hildy and Terry on their Kiss at the end of the murder in season 1 Episode 4. The interactions between the police partners were well written and acted, but I can not on the fact that the kiss happened at all. It felt not acquired and another unnecessary aspect of the show.
For Terry stand up and sing 'Finally' and get all emotional over Hildy felt bad. His wife has just died. Shouldn't it be mourning his death yet? Why is it going into his partner and swooning over their awkward romantic connection? I do not understand, but at least the other side stories been put on hold for the time being.
Erich civil lawyer, David Hertzberg, did an amazing job out Erich bail. He has manipulated the system to obtain a more favorable judge and used it to his advantage. The Court scene was not reminiscent of The Good Wife with his fumbling, papers, recognizing his lack of experience and play for an audience. It worked. Erich received bail.
As expected, Warren Daniels did not stay away long. Plea of Erich Daniels has been sincere and without doubt one of the most honest moments that we saw starting the billionaire playboy. He appeared genuine in his innocence and desire to do it right this time. Erich has learned its lesson, now, it will be a question of whether or not he can temper his impulses.
It has well managed the lie-detector test and even though it was clunky and the easy throughout the of the it, he kept his composure. He succeeded! I do not think that Erich killed Cindy. Well, I guess it's more accurate to say, I really hope that it doesn't have. If he is the killer, the series is better to have a very good explanation for how Erich could appear as innocent.
Erich is a troubled man, but really, it does not act as a murderer. Of course, it could be a psychopath and able to hide its real actions and intentions. He showed signs of that by fixing on Hilty and appear on his doorstep. She'll push him into dangerous territory? Perhaps.
I really hope that the show will not in the direction of Erich be disturbed. I still like Wilkerson as Cindy murderer. He obtained an advantage that would explain how he had killed her. His wife filing for divorce should be a red flag for the police and bring him in their investigation. It is less likely to cover for him, now that she knows about his relationship with Cindy. With the husband of Cindy erased, it is time to move to another suspect. It's his turn.
"Pants on fire" was my favorite episode so far. He had tensions and even a little humor, while answering the questions and advance the case. The show was better without the additional cases as Hildy shooting or enter the home of the character life. Who killed Cindy Strauss? It is yet to be determined, but the race has been initiated.
What was the moment creepiest?
