Murdoch enlists inventor Nikola Tesla to help investigate the murder of an inventor who was experimenting with invisibility, in Murdoch And The Undetectable Man.
The episode begins with a man going into an arcade and paying to see a short film through a viewer. In the film, a man is covered with bandages and is holding up a sign that says “Now you see me”. The next time we see the man, he is dead and Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) and Crabtree (Jonny Harris) are in a lab, standing over his body. They find a bloody fingermark on a metal shelf.
Tesla (Dmitry Chepovetsky) arrives and tells Murdoch he and Bosworth had corresponded with each other. Bosworth had been looking for advice because his investor was about to pull his money from his invention.
Bosworth had wanted to share his invention with Tesla, but when he arrived to meet with him, Bosworth was already dead and some of his equipment was missing. Murdoch asks what the dead inventor had been working on.
