Potential Red Herring Alert
16 January 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Mr. Larsen finally has his moment. After visit to the funeral home where he gets to see his daughter in her burial dress, he fall apart. He has resisted getting involved in the apprehension of her killer until now. His and Mitch's worlds are crashing down around them. Sarah and Stephen start to look into the teacher, Amed, to figure out what he had to do with Rosie in an ongoing way. Letters had been found in an illuminated globe in her bedroom. Upon checking with the school, Amed seemed to be one of those teachers who at times got way more involved with his students than may have been appropriate. He lies to the police when they question him about his whereabouts the night of the murder. The campaign goes into another level because Richmond is finding that his suspicions haven't been correct. We are now confronted with enough scattered evidence to confuse the audience. I hope everyone is playing fair in this drama. I am utterly hooked.
