After a week off to celebrate Canadian literature with the Scotiabank Giller Prize, Murdoch Mysteries returns with “Secrets and Lies,” a very Inspector Brackenreid-centric instalment.
Here’s what the CBC has released with regard to an official synopsis:
When Brackenreid leaves Toronto to help an old friend find a missing woman, he learns he’s a lot closer to the case than he thought.
And here are more tidbits I gleaned after watching a screener for the episode, written by Peter Mitchell and directed by Leslie Hope.
What is Thomas up to?
The episode starts in disarray. Thomas Brackenreid is looking for someone, but it’s not clear who they are and what their relationship to him is. Not only that, it’s not even obvious where the good Inspector is. It’s all pretty unsettling. And then, well, what he says just past the four-minute mark will cause your jaw to drop.
John and Margaret put in an appearance
With Brackenreid at the centre of “Secrets and Lies,” it makes sense that his son and wife would be part of the storyline. It’s always nice to see Charles Vandervaart and Arwen Humphreys on-screen. Look for Raven Dauda, Shailene Garnett and Masa Lizdek in guest roles.
Meanwhile, at Station House No. 4 …
… Murdoch and Crabtree become more concerned as the hours tick by and the Inspector remains unaccounted for.
Murdoch Mysteries airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on CBC.
