Yes, it’s that pay-off moment, folks. That moment in every detective mystery movie when the dramatic music kicks in and the camera zooms in on the hitherto hapless sleuth, who reveals that it couldn’t have been so-and-so who did it, because there’s a photo on the wall that proves he’s left-handed…or whatever. That “Keyser Söze” moment when it dawns on the haggard detective that s/he’s been overlooking that one piece of evidence that’s been staring everyone in the face from the outset. And suddenly, there it is, bold as brass, and the investigator wonders how on Earth s/he could have missed it.
Well, here’s that amazing wake-up moment from those intrepid truth-hunters over at Hampstead “Research”. That one piece of the jigsaw that was missing, that one case-altering clue that’s gonna bust the whole Hoaxtead case wide open and prove once and for all that…ELLA IS INNOCENT! And here it is:
“She speaks beautiful English. She’s so obviously NOT someone who would torture her children.”
Oh my actual God! How could we all have been so blind? Ella cannot be guilty, because…she speaks good English! I hope you’re all thoroughly ashamed of yourselves for not having picked up on this blatantly obvious clue. I know I am. And I think we can all learn a lesson from this humiliating oversight 😉
