I really liked this episode overall. The idea of an NYC restaurant called Much Ado About Noshing had me in absolute stitches for a good half hour.

That was a great throw-away gag, as captured and enjoyed by Murder She Blogged. Really, this whole episode has been about wordplay. So many phrases about Eden would make great murder mystery or pulp romance novel titles ("Lost in Eden," "Enemies in Eden," "It started in Eden"), plus the bordello called Garden of Eden! And one of the ladies of the bordello was eating an apple! Like Eve, get it?

I loved this one -- M, SW at its best -- and Jessica never skips a beat in this one.

Murdering a blackmailer makes me want to rewatch Clue.
