In Murder, a Self Portrait,¬†artist Max Barsini (Patrick Bauchau) has kind of an odd arrangement- he shares a beachside house with his second wife (Shera Danese) and his model/mistress, all while his first wife (Fionnula Flanagan) lives right next door. When the original Mrs. Barsini announces she’s moving out to be with her former therapist, the artist fears she’ll be take a deep, dark secret along to her new digs- Max’s murder of an art dealer decades ago. Deciding he can’t trust her to keep quiet, he kills her on the beach and throws her body in the water to fake a drowning.

Joining to discuss the episode, along with page three murders, hate quadrangles and trinity structure,¬†is podcaster (Hold My Order Terrible Dresser) and writer (We Are the Mutants), Michael Grasso
