Things don't go as planned, however, when chaos breaks out and someone mysteriously dies! Frightened of the bad publicity, Pat calls in her old friend and novelist, Angela Fletcher, to help figure out 'whodunnit' before the tabloids get a hold of the story.

Murder at the Hop! - June 4 to August 17, 2013
Don't need nothin' but a good time, at least that's the case with jukebox hero, Torch Meadows. After bringing the Paradise City nightclub 'The Hop' back from the dust in 1980, she and her band, Cherry Bomb, return for one final show seven years later before departing on her solo career, but as times change once again it's a question of time before the blasphemous rumors begin. Slick and sly entrepreneur, Gene Fowley is bad medicine, putting club owner Russell, under presssure to rid the club of rock and roll. It's a chain reaction of head games, rebel yells, and backlash once someone is found murdered down on Fascination Street. Of course, nosy investigative reporter, Depeche Deville, from The Rolling Rock, knows that every rose has its thorn and this one murder mystery that she intends to prune. So bang your head and walk this way to "Murder at the Hop," where everyone wants to rock and roll all night and party every day. It's guaranteed to rock you like a hurrricane!

While awaiting his final destination, George is visited by a hapless angel named Clarice that shows him the changes his death has brought to the small town of Hollyville. With Clarice's guidance, George is able to view the murder suspects, including his wife, Hailey and his business partner, Mr. Potter, in a new, discerning light that soon allows him to solve his own murder.
