Murder, She Wrote: Benedict Arnold Slipped Here   Rewatch 
August 8, 2015 9:28 AM - Season 4, Episode 18 - Subscribe

When a run-down home in Cabot Cove is rumored to have a direct connection to Benedict Arnold and a hidden treasure, all sorts of interesting characters come together. But when one of them ends up dead, it's up to Jessica to sort out matters, and possibly uncover the true history of the old house.

Tilly Adams wasn't well-remembered in Cabot Cove, so when she died, there wasn't much local attention to her passing. She willed her house to Liza Adams, her grandniece who hasn't been seen for years, while the contents of the house went to Benny Tibbles, a local junk seller and pawn man, er antique dealer, who tries to interest his more prosperous younger brother and fellow antiques dealer (operating out of Boston) in the treasures of Tilly's estate. At this same time, there's a British fellow in town who is interested in local properties, much to the joy of the local real estate agent who is stressing out in this slow market.

The run-down Adams estate draws a lot more attention when the rumor of a connection to Benedict Arnold gets some vague confirmation from the down-on-her-luck house cleaner (and possible thief), and word of a treasure in the house spreads. So when Benny is found dead in the house, there are a number of possible suspects, and it's up to Jess to sort things out.

'I'd love to merge our resources and connections'
Who could resist a smooth talker like that?

At the end, I like to think Jessica pilfered the chess set for Seth instead of overpaying the antiques dealer.

*gasp* Seth kissed Jessica! And that moment near the beginning where Seth and Amos sip their coffee the same way was pure adorable.
