'Whodunnit?'s killer takes its next two victims in Dana and Sasha
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 07/22/2013
Whodunnit? "killed off" two of its eight remaining guests during Sunday night's broadcast of the new reality mystery competition's fifth episode.
Dana, a 39-year-old cardiac nurse from Asheville, NC, and Sasha, a 28-year-old journalist from Washington, DC, were the sixth and seventh guests in the mansion to be "killed" at the end of last night's episode for failing to solve the day's murder crime based upon the evidence supplied. The game-playing guests were investigating the "death" of Ulysses, a 30-year-old attorney from Mechanicsburg, PA, who fell off a horse.
After each participant attempted to solve the crime of Ulysses' "death," each guest received an envelope with a card inside telling them whether they were "spared" or "scared" -- meaning they'd be safe from elimination due to their successful crime-solving skills or potentially get "killed" for failing to impress the murderer with their statements of how they believed the incident's events unfolded.
Besides Dana and Sasha, fellow guest Geno, a 33-year-old bar trivia host from Chicago, IL, got the only other "scared" card but survived.
Cris, a 27-year-old ex-beauty queen from Costa Mesa, CA, ended up impressing the "killer" -- who is actually one of the participants -- most with her statement of how the murder occurred after gathering and interpreting all the evidence.
For each "murder," the guests are allowed to choose one of the following locations to investigate: the scene of the crime, the victim's last known whereabouts and the body itself whether it be in the morgue or elsewhere. They can choose to share the information they discover with others or keep it to themselves.
Cris almost nailed the story of what actually happened to Ulysses. Ulysses was "killed" when a homemade snake device made of a plank of wood and two nails punctured his leg and inserted a deadly poison consisting of water and oleander. A flock of birds was released to distract all the other guests at the time when the group was riding horses to the stables.
The following day after Ulysses' case was solved, Geno was shown walking downstairs and finding Dana and Sasha "dead" in the mansion. Dana was resting against the side of a grand piano, while Sasha was sitting on its bench with her hands on the keys. They appeared to look like wax figures.
In addition to Geno and Cris, the remaining guests who are still playing the mystery game in the hopes of winning the $250,000 reward are Kam, a 30-year-old homeland security attorney from New York, NY; Melina, a 29-year-old flight attendant from Chicago, IL; Ronnie, a 42-year-old bounty hunter from Kenilworth, NJ; and Lindsey, a 27-year-old engineer from Boston, MA.
