Identical to that, most of season 4’s massive questions have been answered, save for a dangling thread or two (we’ll name it a Hanging Stylish). Our podcast Dial M For Maple returns to unpack every new revelation, and to herald the long-awaited reappearance of everybody’s favourite money-grubbing mortician, Dr. Curdle, Jr.! Elsewhere within the episode, Marah recommends another tantalizing whodunnit yarns and Cameron shares his ideas on the brand new KJ Apa-starring biopic, I Still Believe.
