Storyline

Vengeance is the order of the day as the hospitalized killer from The Grand Hotel case escapes his police guard in obsessed, continued pursuit of Baron Henry Fisher. The escape coincides with the murder of prize-winning scientist Quentin Tode, felled by a difficult-to-identify poison. The two incidents appear strongly connected, but as Phryne figuratively sprints non-stop to protect her father's life, Dot and Hugh contend with Father O'Leary, whose caustic Irish nature makes him an astonishing prime suspect in the killing, and a formidable stumbling block (even out of jail) in the couples' marriage plans.In the same time Phryne and Jack continues their relationship and recognize their feelings for eachother.

What a finale!
27 June 2017 | by bensonmum2See all my reviews

Instead of my usual poorly written plot summary, I'm going to go with the one on IMDb for this episode - "The man intent on killing Phryne's father escapes form the hospital on the same night that a prominent scientist is murdered. As Phryne and Jack race the clock to save Baron Fisher, Hugh and Dot make final wedding preparations."

What a finale! If this is truly the end of Miss Fisher and there is never another new episode, I'm as happy about it as I possibly could be. Death Do Us Part wraps-up things as nicely as I could have hoped. Even though I want more, at least this episode provides some degree of closure. And what about that final scene with Phryne and Jack! I refuse to go into detail and spoil things. I'll just say that it's perfect. My 9/10 rating would have most likely been the usual 8/10 if it weren't for that final scene. I couldn't ask for anything more.

Death Do Us Part has a couple of other big pluses. First, as with Death at the Grand, we know who the killer is (it's the same dude), so there's no mystery there. However, the killer's brutality and total disregard for human life is quite shocking. He's not the "polite" killer you find in most episodes. Second, Death Do Us Part as more than its share of action. With a couple of murders, the Baron taken hostage, Dot hiding from the killer under a table, and Father O'Leary in a fistfight, it's a full episode.

A final plus has to be the Hugh / Dot wedding. I don't consider this much of a spoiler because we all knew it was coming. I'm just glad they squeezed it in here instead of waiting for the (doubtful) fourth season. As I so often say when writing about Miss Fisher, it's good stuff!

Overall, I consider Death Do Us Part as one of the two or three best episodes of the entire series. A strong 9/10 from me.
