Looks like this whole thing may be just a scam after all. I hoped Mike wasn’t being cute, and having Brush reveal the truth with his comment that the whole thing was just a con game.
Considering how little action we’ve seen with the Dragon Lady, Warbucks, Smith, etc., I’m reminded of the end of “Murder By Death.”
Through the movie, take-offs of Sam Spade, Nick and Nora Charles, Poirot, Miss Marple, and Charlie Chan run in circles looking for a killer that may not exist.
“Yes. Killed good weekend.”
