Short Summary:In Episode 10 our trio investigate the mass deaths of 47 people in LaPier, Ontario. When they arrive they can find no sign of struggle and the people are positioned as if they were going about their lives with no knowledge they would die. They find a priest and a young girl who survived, but there is no indication as to why they survived. They also find an Indian man named Walt who is from a neighbouring town. They stay with Walt for a night, trying to figure out what happened and if Walt has some responsibility for what happened. Eventually they figure out it was carbon dioxide poisoning and they only reason why the priest survived is because he was at a higher altitude. The young girl survived because of her kidney disease which broke down the C02 and allowed her to live. The trio also find that Adelaide’s husband is going to assassinated the president and travels to intercept him. Houdini saves the president but Doyle is shot. Stratton is forced to shoot her husband Benjamin. After some moments of unconsciousness and conversing with “Sherlock Holmes” again, Doyle lives. Benjamin is not so lucky. The series ends with Houdini in a lounge deck chair with his mother laying beside him. Houdini is not dreaming and it is suggested that he is going crazy. Perhaps his way of grieving.
