Murder, She Wrote: Who Threw the Barbitals in Mrs. Fletcher's Chowder?   Rewatch 
June 10, 2015 7:48 PM - Season 4, Episode 12 - Subscribe

Let's cut the chase here: someone spiked the Genuine Cabot Cove chowder, made with love by Jessica, from her own secret recipe, and this just will not stand. Actually, someone died because a barbital overdose, so the act of spiking the chowder is generally overshadowed by the tension in the Banner/Tupper family, who are dining with Jessica. Wait, what? Amos has a family? Here's what happened ....

Winnie Banner, Amos' sister, was running from her erratic and occasionally violent husband, Elmo, who happened to also be the owner of a chain of drug stores, due to family inheritance. Elmo's sister, Flo, her husband, Harold, and the half-brother of Elmo and Flo, Harold, all have a part to play in the running of the drug stores, and the lot of 'em come tromping into Cabot Cove, acting as Elmo's posse to bring Winnie back to her rightful place as Elmo's dutiful wife.

Then there's Marigold Feeney, once a meter maid in Augusta, now the new deputy sheriff in Cabot Cove, who's tough on parking violations and appears just in the nick of time to save Jessica from being nicked (or worse) when a knife is drawn. Confused? You won't be, after the next episode of Soap, er Murder, She Wrote!

- Anne Meara! I sighed a little when I saw her. She and Geoffrey Lewis, who played murderous Harold, both recently passed. (Murderous Harold would be a great name for a band, btw.)
- Yvette from Clue as Marigold Feeney!
- Doc Cottle from the Galactica as the PI!
- William Windom's winsome new haircut!
- A whole family from Kentucky but no one with an actual Kentucky accent!

And the episode's title is just glorious.
