  "The Spy Who Came Up to the Cold" is the fifteenth episode of the seventh season of the Murdoch Mysteries and the ninety-third episode of the series. It first aired March 10, 2014.

Summary Edit

After the assassination of U.S. President McKinley in Buffalo, Ottawa-based spy Terrance Myers shows in Toronto. The Canadian government is concerned that some of the assassin's co-conspirators may try to make their way to Canada to avoid U.S. authorities. Rumors have it that Emma Goldman is back in Toronto and the police begin rounding up anyone who might be considered the least bit subversive. Among them is Anton Wocek who is later found dead in a warehouse with Myers standing by him with the gun in his hand. That's enough for the supremely arrogant American spy Allen Clegg who believes Myers is part of the conspiracy. Murdoch sets out to prove Myers' innocence and find out exactly what is going on.

Character Revelations Edit

Continuity Edit

  • The assassination of the President of the United States was "foreshadowed" at the end of War on Terror back in Season 5, which also included Meyers, Clegg and Emma Goldman.
  • At the end of the episode, George hands William a note from Julia. He meets her in a shadowy back alley where upon Julia tells him that Gillies is still alive and has been sending her death threats.

Historical References Edit

  • President McKinley's assassination by a man claiming to be an anarchist in Buffalo, New York.

Trivia Edit

  • Maureen Jennings once named the book "The Spy Who Came in from the Cold" as one of her favorite books. The title is obviously a play on the book, but works as the spy (Clegg) comes up to Canada (the Cold)
