Silk Stalkings - The Brotherhood television review

Throwback Thursday takes us back to the unsolved crimes of passion in the wealthy playground of Palm Beach, Florida. Chris (Rob Estes) and Rita (Mitzi Kapture) head back to college to investigate the murder of a coed (Katrina Clayton) who had been beaten, drugged, raped, and killed before her body is found dumped by the side of the road. While the initial evidence, including an eye-witness, seems to point to the girl’s boyfriend (Bojesse Christopher) everything seems a bit too neat for our detectives who dig into the fraternity of their suspect (and eye-witness) and discover something far more sinister than just the death of one coed.

Most of the episode has aged fairly well, other than Chris’ politically incorrect coffee diatribe. Along with the murder victim, the investigation finds another victim (Elizabeth Barondes) able to shed some light on the goings on at the frat house (which includes drugging and gang raping unsuspecting sorority sisters). The case involves Rita undercover and presents some background into Rita’s past to explain why the case hits so close to home. The frat brothers, led by William McNamara are some of the scummiest baddies of the series, and the opening segment is one of the show’s rougher scenes (although the camera view suggests far more than it reveals). No tears are shed when their leader is gunned down while resisting arrest (after attempting to make Rita their next “initiate”).
