We are used to seeing Perry’s clients try to manipulate and hide evidence even in accidental death cases (to their later chagrin), but this pushy, wife-bullying, know-it-all defendant is one I actually wished would have been found guilty. Submitted by cgraul, 10/29/2011.

Question: What happened to Michael for starting the fake kidnapping? The FBI was called. Many off duty police officers were called in and road blocks were set up around the city. There had to be some legal consequences. Submitted by H. Mason 3/31/15

A racially diverse crowd is present in the courtroom. jfh 17Jan2017.

Good to know that Perry and Della are going out for a relaxing evening together at the end of the episode. jfh 17Jan2017.

Implausibilities: After David was returned to his home and questioned by Lt. Anderson why wasn't the FBI there?
Somehow Perry knew about Michael. Minutes after Lt. Anderson got Michael's last name Paul had already investigated the kid and learned he was the son of Mary Manning.
Paul went to Mary Manning's house after midnight to question her.
The scene in the doctor's office seemed almost like a comedy skit. Sande Lukins was surprised at the safe by Dr. Pelham. They turned around and Perry was there. Lt. Anderson walked in on them with a warrant. All that was just before dawn. That would mean Perry, Lt. Anderson and probably the doctor were up all night. There were other bothersome things about the story. Anyone else care to add their thoughts? Submitted by H. Mason 3/31/15

Those head reflectors are worn when examining patients, to direct light into the ears and mouth. Can't think of any reason they would be worn in a research lab. There's that staircase set again, but it looks like it's had a bit of work done since its appearance two episode ago in "TCOT Illicit Illusion". Peter Hobbs looks and sounds remarkably like the Perry Mason stalwart, Whit Bissell. DOD 1/22/18

Note the use of the word "phenomenom" in the opening scene by the young lady in the front seat of the car. Kilo 9/19/2018.

Spoiler Warning! Do Not Read Below If You Have Not Seen The Episode

Once again the real killer is pretending to be a friend of the defendant. This may be a good way to solve Perry cases: finger the fake friend. --Submitted by 10yearoldfan, 9/13/2014.
