And they withheld most of the information until the last episode. That broke my heart. The guy seemed really creepy in his performance persona, but otherwise actually seemed like a gentle person. I'm always amazed at how vicious people can be online. I hope someone (or lots of someones) did reach out to him with sincere apologies after this aired. Or even some sympathy and support. Why do you suspect him? With all the information the family gave about her history of going off her meds, hallucinating, and thinking she was being chased, it seemed pretty straightforward. That was cleared up in the last episode. The hatch was open but the police officer gave the wrong information to the press so everyone thought it was closed. Obviously, I missed that. Thanks! That's interesting! Thanks for sharing. That's what I was thinking. I knew someone whose personality completely changed when she got a brain tumor but that's something more serious than a bonk on the noggin. That's interesting! Could his experience in Baghdad have had something to do with it? Do a google image search and you'll see plenty of smiles. Best click bait I ever clicked! I've seen it compared to "Waiting for Godot" but I haven't seen that one so I can't vouch for it. I think he was obsessed with the tapes because he was troubled and tormented, which made him susceptible to the evil influence of the tapes. And I think being obsessed is what caused him to be indifferent to the Hank's reappearance. The one thing that did make sense to me was that Earl was her "last chance" angel. Since he was also Leon Cooley's angel and Cooley was sentenced to die, I also suspected she was headed for an untimely death and that was why she was given a last chance angel. But, to your point, it would have been more believable if her death was not her choice. Thanks! Thank you!! I will check those out. It was based on a book so maybe it's not all his fault. You're right, it was unscripted. Here's what iMDB says: <i>When Columbo walks down a steep, grassy hill to inspect the wreckage of the Jaguar, he loses his footing and stumbles, taking a big fall and landing on his back. This wasn't staged; it was Peter Falk, not a stuntman.</i> Which, I think, makes his remark even funnier. "But I'll tell ya, it <i>was</i> the quickest way down." That's a good point. I think I was zeroing in on the "rated" part of overrated. Okay, I think I understand. You don't believe she's deserving of the awards and reputation she's gained. Thanks, it's always been unclear to me exactly what people mean by that term. What do you mean when you say "overrated"? What rating system are you referring to?
