The investigation made great strides in this episode by identifying a prime suspect.

The characters are all so fond of analyzing each other and giving each other pointers on their love lives, but although everyone seems to love dishing it out, no one can take it.

It was really irresponsible for John not to tell the others on the team about Connor's beating him up because the man is dangerous and vindictive and the others might be in danger. I don't know why that didn't occur to him. Sara was right when she said he never has a serious moment.

She was also right when she theorized that the killer had an abusive mother. I want Sara to lead the investigation in the next season if there is one.

There is NO DAMN WAY Laszlo and John could have survived that carriage crash without any injuries but Laszlo's injured leg. Come on, they would very likely have been killed. It was so laughably unrealistic. They should have had the carriage just fall over rather than plunge twenty or more feet off a bridge. Also they don't seem to have spared a single thought for their coachman, and whether he's dead or alive. (Probably the former, but they could at least go through the form of checking.)

Alas for Mary. Who was killed by her fall though she fell about half as far as Laszlo and John. I wish we'd gotten to know her character better.

Real upset about Mary getting fridged. I too wanted more of her story.

And you're right about the carriage accident. Those sorts of accidents were brutal.

Mary smacks into the chandelier quite hard on the way down. I think she breaks her neck, not from the fall but from that impact.
