Dead Men Don't Throw Rice
I have to admit, this is one of my favorite episodes. I have wanted to see Benton admit even in the littlest way that he likes Franchesca and he finally has!
After she tells him she is getting married he acts like this is no big deal but later when Dief runs after her he says "he finds her even more attractive now that she's engaged" i just know he is talking about himself.
You can't mistake how she feels for him after finding out about his 'death'. to run full tilt out of the bridal shop wedding gown and all and to not care about her own personal safety (she almost gets hit by a car, come on guys! this is more than just a crush she loves him with all her heart and soul. Did you happen to notice also that she was the only one who could bring him back from the land of the dead? nothing Ray did or said got him moving. I am sure he feels the same way for her.
How about when Franchesca goes with ray to the restraunt,Benton is the one to say how much danger she may be putting herself into. It also seems to me that neither her nor Ray knew Benton followed them to the restraunt. Notice how he peeks over his menu to eavesdrop on their conversation. This is really one of the best episodes I have seen in a while (next to victoria's secret of course).

I just saw this ep tonight. Did anyone get a good look at the guy Frannie was going to marry?!! It's PG with glasses and speaking German! What's this supposed to say? She loves Fraser for more than his looks? Are we supposed to assume she never noticed how much like Fraser he looked like? Maybe it was just subliminal. And how did they ever become engaged if he didn't understand English and she obviously doesn't speak German? I'm sort of confused on this matter so if anyone has any insight please let me know.
Hey, the Canadian influence is rubbing off. Never heard Ray say such a long and formal sentence while arresting someone! Or being so friendly towards suspects (You'd actually think he was a Canadian (LOL)). And Fraser using suggestive threats... perhaps it was truly almost time to go home for the Mountie.
Also liked the scene in the restaurant, where Fraser is peeking periscope-wise over his menu-card to watch his partner and "his" sister...
After having an "out of body" experience, Fraser joins his Dad until Francesca lets out of scream that literally wakes the dead. Some exaggerated acting from Renfield Turnbull as he wails at the funeral home. Episode started out at a very slow pace until the "Fraser's death" rumours start milling around the precinct. Then we're on our way to a hilarious ending.
