Synopsis: Believing that solving Lucy’s murder will lead to solving Tiffany’s murder, the Drew Crew resolves to find a way to speak with the only eyewitness to both murders-Dead Lucy herself.

Review: Things get interesting as Nancy gets a bit closer to the truth.

The Story

Having gotten the coins from the Hudson’s sunken treasure. Nick is hoping to use the coins as evidence against the Hudson family, but Nancy sees opportunity when George’s mother Victoria claims that the coins are a magnet for the spirits. To that end, the team set about arranging a seance.

Also, Nick finds out some information, which further links Lucy’s father to the Hudson’s, which potentially implicates him in a cover-up or worse still the murder itself. When he tries to share this information with Nancy she gives him the cold shoulder but after the seance, Nancy begins to fear that her father may have been involved in the murder of Lucy Sable. We also learn that it was not the same person that killed Tiffany. Nancy gets more suspicious of her father when she learns that he has been tracking her calls and text messages via the family cloud.

The Acting

Kennedy McMann and Tunji Kasim have some pretty challenging scenes in this episode as Nancy and Nick pretty much break up, but it is the build-up to the break up that is really well performed.

Also really good was Liza Lapira as George’s clairvoyant mother Victoria who drinks a lot to try and keep the spirits at bay. The scene where she tries to get herself arrested was pretty damn funny.

Overall

A pretty solid episode, which presented us with more clues and theories into the two murders. The seance was worth the price of admission alone, but I have to admit that I am a little concerned about the fate of George’s younger sister who has got herself a new friend from the spirit world.

The final scene that this all builds up too was well and truly earned and I look forward to finding out how Nancy’s father reacts to it and whether he answers his daughter’s question or not.
