Best and worst of Murder, She Wrote Season 7

If you ever ask a Murder, She Wrote fan what their favorite episodes are, almost invariably their response would be: “Any episode set in Cabot Cove.” But given that there are almost 60 such episodes, there are definitely episodes that stand out more than others. I have previously run polls to find out which Cabot Cove episodes are fan favorites in Season 4, Season 5, and Season 6. Now that I’ve completed my summaries for Season 7 episodes, I therefore wanted to find out what fans think is the best (and worst) of Murder, She Wrote‘s Season 7 episodes set in Cabot Cove.

There were five such episodes in Season 7. I’ve listed them all below, and if you need a refresher on what each episode was about, you can click on the episode title to take you to my trivia summary for that particular episode.

In the past, I found that the best way of collecting this information would be to set up a survey using Google Forms which allows fans to rank the episodes from 1 (best) to 5 (worst). You can respond to the survey below. (Note: Each episode has to have a different ranking for you to be able to submit your vote.) I will give everyone a couple of weeks to vote and will update this post on June 7th with the results!

[EDIT: May 26th 2021 — Due to some problems with Google Forms, I’ve had to set up a fresh version of the survey. I hope that there won’t be any issues with this one, but do let me know if you get an error message. The link to the new survey is here: ]


  1. In our family we would rank them best to worst, 1 being best…
    1. Deadly Misunderstanding
    2. A Body to Die For
    3. The Skinny According to Nick Culhane
    4. The Prodigal Father
    5. Moving Violations
    We love everything about Deadly Misunderstanding, the storms, the cast and the writing make it a light-hearted romp. A Body to Die for is also fun dn funny but Mom hates that Hugh O’Brian is a)bad and b)murdered.
    Nick Culhane is delightful and original, but it is surprisingly rough when Tony LoBianco gets violent. It is hard to see naughty Nick be killed but the Harry Mcgraw in Cabot Cove dynamic is aces. The other 2 are not ones we watch often at all, despite the fact that we LOVE Donnelly Rhodes. He played the dad on a lovely little Canadian show we watched in Disney decades ago called Danger Bay, and we have loved him ever since. Thank you for your wonderful recap, I have read some of your season 7 episode recaps but not all, will do that ASAP!
