Season 2 of Private Eyes has really been a joy to watch. It’s the perfect summer confection, packed with fun with a side of light drama; the perfect program to sit down and fully enjoy on a steamy evening. The writing in this sophomore go-round is tighter and the acting crew have truly embraced their roles. That continues in this week’s new storyline,Â “Now You See Her…,” which injects a little of the paranormal into the proceedings.
Here is the official episode synopsis from Global for Thursday’s episode written by James Thorpe and directed by Kelly Makin:
A brilliant orchestra conductor hires Shade and Angie to find his missing fiancÃ©e. But thereâ€™s a catch â€“ she died a year ago. On the trail of a ghost, Shade and Angie unearth a dark secret with fatal implications for everyone involved.
And, as always, here are a few tidbits to tease you after watching a screener.
Don gets a plot of his own
Daddy Shade has been in the background for much of the series so far, able to offer a supporting shoulder or a well-timed quip. This week a phone call puts Don front and centre, and throws his and Matt’s lives for a loop.
It’s been a few weeks since ClÃ© Bennett (above) has been on-screen and it’s great to have his whisper-voiced, detective back in our lives, especially if it leads to some super-awkward scenes involving Angie as they discuss the case. (Also, I love the writing team giving a shout-out to Cobourg, Ont.)
Follow the moving donut box
I’m a total TV geek and take immense pleasure in the behind-the-scenes work that goes into creating a television show from the writing to the incredible sets and set decoration. That’s why I spotted a donut box that switched position a couple of times in one scene. See if you catch it too. Mon Dieu!
Second Jen co-star alert!
Samantha Wan, of course, plays Zoe this season. While we await the fate of Second Jenâ€”ahem Rogersâ€”keep your eyes peeled for a guest role by Wan’s co-star Amanda Joy.
Private Eyes airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
