Preview: Frankie Drake Mysteries, “School Ties … School Lies”

After two great back-to-back Season 3 episodes full of fun and action, Frankie Drake Mysteries checks back in this Monday with new stories.

Let’s get to this week’s new instalment, “School Ties … School Lies,” written by Jennifer Kassabian and directed by Rubba Nada. Here’s the official synopsis from the CBC:

To find the killer of a beloved teacher at an elite private school, Frankie enlists the help of a precocious student.

And here are more tidbits from me after watching a screener of the episode.

A woman in period costume.Flo gets some major screen time
Last week she canoodled with a fellow. This week, Flo is impacting young minds at the private school. While handing out jars with body parts inside, she extolls the virtues of medical school while acknowledging it’s a boy’s club that needs ladies.

A suspect with an outrageous admission
You know how, on most crime series, a suspect feigns liking the victim? That doesn’t happen on Monday. I’m not saying this suspect is guilty, but they certainly don’t sugar-coat their feelings.

A woman and girl in period clothing.Where’s the Cash Cab?
Keep an eye out for Cash Cab host Adam Growe in a surly role. Also, look for Kate Hewlett as the leader of the school’s PTA.

Mary faces off with a bully
We love Mary’s sass, spunk and take-no-prisoners attitude. She’s evolved quite a bit in the last three seasons and takes down a mouthy jerk on Monday.

Frankie Drake Mysteries airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on CBC.
