The ending on this one was weird, it's always odd to me when Poirot seems to let murders or would be murderers get away with it. I liked how clever he was here, but I get uncomfortable when he starts playing judge and jury. He's usually so against the taking of human life. On the plus side the wasps metaphor was nice and I liked the weird love triangle between the three of them.

Big surprise to watch this episode again and realize that Claude, the target of the plot, is future 12th Doctor Peter Capaldi.

As far as the ending, Poirot seemed relieved at being able to stop the killer's plan before it can happen, reasoning that he'd saved not only Claude from the noose, but also his friend John from being a murderer, as he sharply denies John's assertion that it's merely suicide.

It was a touching exchange at the end, too: "You'll come back, Poirot? Before..." "Before too long, mon ami."
