She was talking about watching Dateline to find out how not to end up on Dateline, and being prepared for attackers by listening to murder podcasts.

Good point. As an avid Dateline watcher, I remember thinking her remark about watching Dateline so she wouldn't end up on Dateline was really funny. 😁

My view of the episode is different than most it seems.  I thought quite a lot happened - we met Oscar, we learned that he is Tie-Dye-Guy and the guys learn more about Mabel's connection to Tim Kono.

I knew nothing about Selena Gomez, other that having heard her name, before this show.  I think she fits the character very well and some of the things that others criticize about her seem to work very well.  She has kind of a world-weary attitude and instead of over-emoting, she is more subdued.  This is a good balance to the guys, especially Martin Short.  Let Oliver and Charles have the high energy expressiveness and let Mabel be slightly withholding and watchful.  I like her dry humor.

I liked it too because when I watch Dateline I always find myself saying, "If I'm found dead in these circumstances it is for sure murder!"

Did anyone else find it interesting for the show to have that moment where the doorman (I forgot his name) found Charles's fedora and gave it back to him, right before the took off to follow Mabel? Or was there a fedora-losing moment in a previous episode that I missed?

Makes sense. When I was about 20, I successfully out-talked, out-ran, and out-screamed my would-be attackers on 3 separate occasions.
However, the screaming was a one-off. I'm really a terrible screamer. 

I wonder if the writers heard about the woman who used her Walking Dead fantasy skills.

Anyway, since this was a sort of Chekhov's knitting needle, I am going to be expecting cactus milk in the eye of someone,  hopefully a murderer.

I would imagine the writers have heard about the woman using the Walking Dead fantasy skills as it was the daughter from Dirty John.  When he attempted to abduct and murder her she killed him like a walker.  I believe she was stabbed a lot in the process, but it's been a long while since I've listened to that podcast.

I know! If he sells stolen jewelry, isn't he just a fence? I mean, other than stolen, what kind of jewelry is illegal to sell? Unless they're importing jewelry without paying taxes, etc. which is actually pretty boring as crimes go. 

Blood diamonds are illegal to sell, so are gems smuggled in from embargoed countries.  There's other specifics around gem smuggling like under-declaring or declaring a different origin that are less likely to get caught (these are specific to smuggling into the US, not smuggling out of the originating countries).  You can also reset stones from stolen jewelry into new pieces.  I think there's a laser ID engraved into diamonds now to make this harder, but obviously it's not visible to the naked eye and you'd have to be looking for it.  All of my jewel thief knowledge comes from TV and movies though so ymmv.
