Background Information and Notes
*This episode shares many similarities to the Season 10 episode "Stranger"
- Both episodes revolve around a storyline of an imposter presenting herself as a girl who’d gone missing years prior.
- It is revealed at the end of both episodes that the missing victim was actually murdered by their sibling.
- In both episodes, it is also revealed that one of the victim's parents was in fact aware that the sibling murdered the victim, but chose to conceal the act in order to shield the sibling from any consequences of her/his actions.
