Beth Chadwick and her brother Bryce are rich. Bryce doesn’t want Beth seeing Peter Hamilton because he thinks he’s after her money. Beth is a little upset at this and sets up the murder of her brother to look like an accident. Columbo appears at 20 minutes and 2 seconds reading a paper. An inquest finds the death was an accident and completely exonerates Beth. Columbo knows better though and doesn’t give up on proving premeditation. He proves it.
In this episode we learn that Columbo comes from a very large family, he likes onion rings, doesn’t like whipped cream on his mighty malt and his wife in prone to spouting proverbs.
During this episode I ate a small amount of beans on toast.
