This episode was on today. Howard Benson claimed that he was carrying a lot of money & Joe was accused of killing him for it, but they never searched Joe's belongings or the shack for it. Everyone knew Benson had Joe's knife & that he claimed to be carrying money, so why just accuse Joe & not search for the money?

I saw this again today, second viewing. I enjoy it, but it's a bit of a silly story really, too many twists and turns, a bit like a Columbo reveal-all-at-the-end ep. I didn't think that woman looked anywhere near death at the end, she was chatting away happily, and then she suddenly keeled over and dropped dead, haha, not very convincing! :no :laughing Some good parts and I'd watch it again, but not brilliant.

I like the episode but it is a bit strange at times. The killer wasn't who they thought it was [ Joe] or even who I thought it was [Leon]. I love the ending when Hoss helps bring Joe home and the first thing Joe does is put his dirty boots on the table! :cactussmilie :settee

That was a strange episode. Everyone knew that Benson had Joe's knife so why did they accuse him. The other 4 were greedy enough, so why didn't they look for the money Benson said he had?

Yeah, they seemed to forget all about the money actually as being a motive for the crime, just focussing on them being threatened by the guy. :no
