An adult is just a child that has found a way to deal with growing up, growing old and finding that rare solution to owning responsibility; an adult is the child and then forgets what it was to be carefree, to be light hearted and cheerful. It is only in the urgency of our parent’s voice that the child begins to understand that the world is a dangerous place, not the untroubled paradise of learning, of playing and the hopefully cheery memory we wish it could be.

The last post is played, Poirot has died. Not before though the Belgian solves his last murder before it has even happened as the pace of this special, Curtain: Poirot’s Final Case goes deeper and darker than has been alluded to before, with the greatest of exceptions to the Poirot story of them all, Murder On The Orient Express.
