Did You Know?


This episode is loosely based on the case of John List. On November 9, 1971 he killed his wife, mother, and three children in their home in Westfield, New Jersey, and then disappeared. A fugitive from justice for nearly 18 years who assumed a new identity and remarried, List was finally apprehended on June 1, 1989. See more »


While giving the eulogy for his sister-in-law and brother-in-law, the ultra-religious Paul quotes from "Revelations." The chapter is entitled Revelation (no 's'). The character of Paul would not make an error of that nature. See more »

Even Abraham had moments of doubt
7 October 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

A teenager (Britt Robertson) was staging "Cyrano the Bergerac" as the lead female role in a Christian school theater. Her father looked disturbed and he left the place before the ending, leaving his wife alone in the audience. Shortly after he came over his brother and sister-in-law, killing them both together with their unborn child with a hammer. The same fate suffered the next day the drama teacher and then the manager of the bank he used to work before being fired: he was the scapegoat of the subprime scam. Goren and Eames were in a race against the clock to stop further murders; the motive of this kind of madness is not easy to be understood.

Another Columbo-like episode (higher pace anyway), where we know the perp since the beginning and the suspense is related to the motive
