Synopsis: While using a combination of forensic clues, skilled observation and relentless questioning of those who knew Lucy at the end of her life, Nancy unravels what happened the night Lucy died.
With only hours left before she has to testify in the court case and try and clear her father’s name for the murder of Lucy Sable. Nancy puts all her efforts into finding out the truth about what happened on the night of Lucy’s death. To that end she enlists some help from Ryan Hudson, who she believes was framed for the murder due to an inconsistency in one of the email messages that he sent Lucy. The tail leads Nancy and Ryan to an old house where they find Lucy’s old journal, which potentially holds some of the answers that Nancy is looking for.
Meanwhile at The Claw. Georgie, Nick, Beth, Ace, and Nancy’s Coroner friend John Sender have been examining dead Lucy’s bone for clues, but things get dicey when a new police detective turns up to search the place armed with an official warrant.
Kennedy McMann and Riley Smith put in a wonderful performance this week as the pair investigate the murder of Lucy and despite being haunted by the ghost come through. This all ends in the trial that clears Nancy’s father, but we learn toward the end of the episode that there is a little more too what happened on the night of Lucy’s death. This leads to a wonderful scene between McMann and Scott Wolf as Carson Drew who fills in the missing pieces of the mystery, which ends the episode on a massive twist concerning the true origins of Nancy Drew.
A fantastic episode, which solves the mystery of Lucy Sable’s death, but also adds some interesting elements for the series to explore in future episodes when the season resumes broadcast in April. I loved the chaos that happened when Ace, John, Georgie, Beth, and Nick did their best to hide dead Lucy’s bones from the police and the detective that was searching The Claw. Overall a fabulous episode, which had a nice balance of drama, horror, and comedy.
