The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are picking apart the clues to deduce the real murderers in honor of the new twisty drawing room mystery, "Knives Out." The guys pitch variations on the Agatha Christie-style murder mysteries and then play another rendition of their closing game, "So Shalit Be," but this one goes into even extra special bizarre territory, and that's saying something.
