Recap: Due South S 1 E 08 Chicago Holiday Part 2

The search for the matchbook continues as Christina still refuses to counter Fraser's every effort to keep her safe. What's worse, Eddie now believes she has the matchbook (she doesn't) and will do anything he can to get it from her.


Tropes

  • Bedmate Reveal: Played with. Fraser passes out from exhaustion at the hotel after chasing Christina around all night, and wakes up in her hotel room implied to be wearing only a blanket. Christina quickly explains away any concerns: She had the hotel's excellent staff move him into the room and had his uniform dry cleaned for him.
  • Hometown Nickname: Christina explains why she calls Fraser "Chicago". After spending so much of her life in one city or another due to her father's diplomatic career, it's more convenient for her to refer to her various bodyguards by the city they work in rather than learning their names.
  • Punny Name: One of the matchbook's many carriers is revealed (via a mirror) to be named Mr. MacGuffin, continuing the joke from the last episode.
  • These Hands Have Killed: Christina thinks she has killed Eddie (she hasn't, but the real killer finds it convenient to manipulate her by making her think she has).
