May 16, 2015 7:45 AM - Season 4, Episode 5 - Subscribe

Duncan Barnett, the CEO of Barnett Industries, invites the company's board of directors, including Jessica, to his suburban New York home for unclear purposes. When Duncan doesn't announce his plans to retire and name a successor, the tension at the party increases, but Duncan simply heads to bed. The next morning, his wife finds him dead, throwing the board into a tizzy and factions form, putting Jessica in the position of solving the suspicious death of Duncan, and helping to find balance for the board of the company that has a paper mill in her hometown.

I enjoyed the girl-power ending, especially after all the over-the-top condescension Jessica had to experience as part of the board.

Who takes a bath in a Speedo?

Anyway, loved this one. I mean, on this show, most of the victims had it coming, but this one was really asking for it.

And yes, happy ending!

Double, double toil and trouble;
Speedo bare and hot tub bubble.

I almost did a spit take when the corporate raider said “Would you like some Oregon beer? It doesn’t taste good but it reminds me of home.”

Had the microbrew revolution not come to Oregon in 1987?
