In the Magnum, P.I. episode “Sudden Death,” when the father of one of TC’s (Stephen Hill) football players is accused of murder, TC turns to Magnum (Jay Hernandez) for help. The victim, Dr. Ellis Mason, was found dead in a parking garage with cases of steroids in the trunk of his car. All of the circumstantial evidence points to TC’s friend, but with the help of a lawyer with “murky morals” — Vanessa Nero (Cyndi Lauper!), Magnum’s investigation leads to a conversation with the dead doctor’s wife, Brooke Mason.
Dr. Mason’s wife Brooke Mason is portrayed by Elizabeth Röhm. She’s known for her roles on Jane the Virgin (Eileen), Hawaii Five-0 (Dr. Madison Gray), The Last Ship (Allison Shaw), Beauty and the Beast (FBI Special Agent Dana Landon), The Client List (Taylor Berkhalter), Heroes (Lauren Gilmore), Law & Order (Serena Southerlyn, see photo below), and Angel (Detective Kate Lockley), among others. Magnum, P.I. airs Mondays at 9 pm on CBS, right after Happy Together and right before Bull.
