After a week away because of the federal election, Frankie Drake Mysteries is back with an all-new episode. Thanks to previews, we already know that Sean Cullen drops by, but what else can be gleaned before Monday night?
Here’s what the CBC has released as a synopsis forÂ “Life on the Line,” written by Keri Ferencz and directed by Adriana Maggs.
When a toy store owner is the target of a harassment campaign, the gang goes undercover at a telephone exchange to nab the culprit.
And here is more info after I watched a screener.
Flo is at a crossroads
We’re so used to seeing Flo working onâ€”and making jokes overâ€”cadavers. But, what if she passes all of her medical tests and becomes a doctor? Aside from her studies, Flo and Mary don headsets and do some detective work.
Matt Watts guest stars
Watts, who has starred in The Newsroom, Michael: Every Day and The Writers’ Block, is a major part of the A-storyline as Ernie Penny, the focus of the harrassment. He hires Frankie and the team to uncover the person behind it. Watts is pitch-perfect, a neurotic, twitchy, bundle of nerves who is convinced someone is out to get him. Also, look for Katy Breier, who portrayed Lydia Hall on Murdoch Mysteries, Rodrigo Fenandez-Stoll of Kim’s Convenience,Â Hannah Cheesman and Alice SnadenÂ in guest gigs.
Bill and Trudy
Romaine Waite figures into Monday’s episode too. She calls him to move their lunch dateâ€”work and allâ€”and he gives the telephone a quizzical look as he hangs up. What’s going on with these two?
Frankie Drake Mysteries airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on CBC.
