DL078: Hercule Poirot: The Case of the Careless Victim — Act 2: Scene 1 & 2
CSI – Crime Scene Investigation:
Poirot, Inspector Stevens, and Miss Fletcher all go upstairs to the room above Miss Fletcher’s room — the room where Poirot says the murder took place. No one is there. It gives them a chance to investigate the room and learn what they can about Mr. Parrish, the important man who needed a bodyguard because of death threats. Pay attention to the details they learn here from the clues.
While there, they are surprised by the return of Mr. Parrish. It’s quite a relief that the murderer hasn’t carried out his threat yet, but they don’t seem very friendly with each other. The situation is tense, so maybe that explains the unfriendly atmosphere.
Mr Parrish is packing his things, getting ready to leave New York. Before he goes, he expects his daughter to come visit him, but she hasn’t shown up yet. I wonder what is keeping her.
