About this deal

Lane was a demanding and hard working star and she achieved the reputation of being a bitch and was proud of it. Eve and Peabody watch the security feed, seeing Bernstein enter the Lane-Fitzhugh apartment as a cleaner, carrying her big-ass bag that holds the cocktail dress and makeup and seeing her leave, now dressed up, before Brant took the drink to Lane.

I used to really enjoy this series but as the series progressed the sameness of the plots did my head in.Rico thinks Vera was pretty shaken by Brant’s murder, more than she let on, that it was the first time he'd seen her vulnerable. Eve assigns officers to babysit her until they can bring her back in the following day, beginning with Officers Carmichael and Shelby, and tells Peabody to take the media briefing while she heads to interview Proctor before updating Lane. The reveal of the killer and motive seriously caught me by surprise and that doesn’t happen often with these cases. After all, familiarity does breed contempt and there’s no one more familiar than a spouse or domestic partner.

There's a handful that I don't bother listening to again, as they're fairly predictable and not so entertaining. Vera says she’s been so upset (delayed reaction to Brant’s death) she took the day off from work, canceling shooting for the first time in her life, and she’s going have to say sweet things about Eliza now that she’s the tragic figure, and that galls. Her stepmother's grandparents surprised her with a trip to New York for the opening night of Upstage (for Roger, Heaven, and Minerva). Eve heads for the interview with Bernstein, noting a few stray crumbs from Nadine’s bribe in her bullpen along the way.Peabody says if it turns out Rico looked the other way while Vera poisoned Lane’s drink, she will never be able to watch him catch the Christmas-loving heroine when she slips off the stepladder while hanging the shining star on the top of the tree, then go in for the long, slow, kiss, and she resents that. It wasn’t all about the case as the updates on Peabody and Mavis’s home renovation project was fun and interesting. It looks like Rose and Minerva spent time together in Chicago, including dance classes, before Rose moved to New York at 15 with her mother.

She takes Eve and Peabody through the event, giving them a picture of who was standing where when Brant drank. I am not sure exactly why but I could never get into the story and kept falling asleep listening to the audiobook. At the morgue, Morris confirms that Brant was in good health before death and took care of his body, and he “liked his work, and his activism for the homeless. Lane visited Brant’s body earlier, along with Sylvie, Lin, and Dolby, and says it still doesn’t seem real. She was six when her mother and Rose's father got together, and Minerva looked up to Rose, who was seven years older, even though she saw her problems - bulimia, pills to keep her energy up and her weight down.

Which is when, based on the evidence, it really starts to look like the literal poisoned chalice was meant for her and he was just drinking the wrong drink at the wrong time. Lane told her to fuck off, that she was just friends with Gary, and if anybody drove her to her death it was Debra. Cyril and Sylvie take her upstairs, the rest of it was already in the toy teapot in Sylvie’s granddaughter’s room, and what a good friend Eliza was to help Sylvie get rid of her ex’s things. Over the course of the series, we've been introduced to and grown to love an entertaining cast of characters, all of whom liven up the story when things might begin to drag.

Jenkinson and Reineke have the suspect on the Dobson (dead waiter) case, and Eve and Peabody give statements at the media conference, beginning with Eve reading Eliza's prepared statement requesting privacy (Eve remembers what Roarke had told her earlier, "Good luck with that"). Eliza and Dolby are working on Brant’s memorials, and Eve asks Dolby if he remembers going up to the third floor after lunch on Monday, which he didn’t do. Eve tells her "a source from the NYPSD states that something of value was taken from the Lane/Fitzhugh residence on the night of the murder, and has since been recovered. Eve doesn’t think she was close enough to Brant to knock the drink away in time, but is still leaning away from her as the killer. Bernstein grabbed him by the crotch and slapped him, but then his roommate came out and told her to get the hell out or he'd throw her out.Maeve took to reminding Lane that she was only there because Leah was in the morgue, and has had a few barbed things to say about the revival, how at least this time when she’s stepping into her shoes, Spindal is still wearing hers.
