Last week on Private Eyes, Angie’s past returned when her ex-fiancé, Dr. Ken (Mark Ghanimé) had his clinic broken into and drugs were stolen. By the end of the instalment, the pair shared a sultry kiss in the darkened offices of Everett Investigations. Would the storyline continue this week with more liplocks?
Here’s what Global says about Thursday’s episode, “Six Feet Blunder,” written by Katrina Saville and directed by Jill Carter. And note that next week’s episode is Private Eyes‘ Season 2A finale—the final nine stories will be broadcast in 2018.
When a panicked mortician hires Shade and Angie to track down a missing body, they find themselves crashing funeral services around the city, eventually unearthing a family plot to bury millions of dollars of a controversial inheritance. Meanwhile, Jules’ impending birthday gives Shade a chance to show off his party-planning skills, but he still has one problem…figuring out the right time to invite significant others to family affairs.
And, as always, here are more details after we watched a screener.
Dr. Ken is back
Yup, this week’s story picks up closely following the events of last week’s. You can put two and two together, right? We don’t need to spell it out, do we?
So is Melanie
I actually thought the romance between Shade and Mel would last just a couple of episodes. And I’ve been totally wrong assuming the addition of extra characters would draw attention away from Shade and Angie. Instead, Ken and Mel have added a layer to our favourite detectives that have made them more enjoyable and fully formed. It’s also added a layer of complexity, as Shade is still wondering whether he should be introducing Mel to Jules.
The case has an effect on Zoe
Helping Shade and Angie causes Zoe to reflect on her life and the impact—or lack thereof—she may have on the world. Also: Kim’s Convenience fans should keep an eye out for Sugith Varughese (Mr. Mehta) in a guest-starring role.
Private Eyes airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
