Nothing is adding up for Quincy in this episode. A prominent CEO is found apparently murdered in his office, and a suspect with a motive is in custody. However, the autopsy is uncovering some very strange test results, and every lead that Quincy follows seems to happen 9 years in the past. Quincy eventually is able to tie things together, and discovers an extensive murder plot that was 9 years in the making. Written by Beeracuda

Rather ridiculous, even for "Quincy".
16 April 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Although this episode stars John Colicos (who is always delightfully slimy), this is a weak episode--mostly because the solution to the murder is utterly ridiculous.

The show begins with an older gentleman getting out of prison after eight years. He apparently was VERY angry as his old 'friend' (who is the head of a mega-corporation) wants to see him and make good on his promise to take care of him for going to prison in place of him. However, after the ex-prisoner goes up to the man's apartment, the police are called--and they are told that the angry ex-prisoner killed his old business partner. However, Quincy is convinced that the case isn't as open and shut as people think--mostly because some of the autopsy results are too bizarre to be true. Plus, there is a lot of pressure from corporate officials to wrap it up...fast. All this is pretty interesting. However, when the pieces all come together at the end, the solution to the crime is utterly stupid and so difficult to believe that I felt cheated. Decent episode with a rotten solution at the end.
