The heirs are still at the coffee shop, when an explosion from the kitchen stops the meeting. Mrs. Theodorakis runs from the kitchen, her face, hair, and apron splattered with dripping red that turns out I to be tomato sauce.
ch. 14 The Fourth Bomb
A sign in the elevator reminds residents that, since the coffee shop is closed for repairs, Shin Hoo's restaurant is a perfect alternative. Grace Wexler will be the seating hostess. The tenants arrive for dinner, and Grace Wexler decides to mix up the pairs by seating them with people other than their Westing game partners: Theo and Angela have a sweet rapport, Sydelle and Chris find a similar sense of humor, and Flora Baumbach brings out the gentle side of Judge Ford. To Judge Ford, Flora mentions Angela's resemblance to Violet Westing, Sam Westing's daughter who died just before her own wedding.
The wedding shower is in full swing at the Wexler's apartment. Angela has not invited her own friends from her days in college. The guests are her mother's friends and their daughters. Angela opens her gifts. As she begins opening a box wrapped in gold foil, she goes very slowly. It's too slow for Turtle, who comes over to peek into the box. "Get away!" Angela cries and jerks the gift up and away from Turtle. There's a bang, and Angela is left with a burned hand and gash on her cheek. Now the heirs are even more suspicious of each other, and they're frustrated when the police dismiss the bombs as childish pranks. It's worth noting that Angela wouldn't have been hurt if she hadn't tilted the box toward herself, to protect Turtle.
Turtle sets off a fourth bomb in the elevator and she burns her precious braid. She confesses to all the bombings, and is taken to meet with the judge. The judge figures out that Turtle was just protecting Angela, the real bomber.
