date Wednesday, Decemeber 10th, 2003)
Llanview University, student commons. The police are investigating
the sixth killing by the Music Box Killer. Bo Buchanan and FBI
Agent John McBain are there. DA Daniel Coulson arrives trying
to weld his power; Bo is annoyed by his presence. Bo tells him
that it is not up to him to investigate crimes. Marcie Walsh
is there, since she found the body.
Scene Two: At Rodi's a bar, Ron Walsh arrives, he had been called
in a about two weeks ago after the previous murder. He is agitated
and looks odd. He orders a drink and becomes jumpy when he sees
a young man come in. The man looks around, making Ron more nervous.
The man notices Professor Haver sitting with two women and walks
over to them.
STEPHEN: Mr. Thompson, welcome.
Please join us.
Meanwhile Jessica Buchanan walks in and sees Ron. She
talks to Natalie Vega, who is bartending. Looking around the
bar Jess sees Haver, "There's Prof. Haver" -- pointing
him out to Natalie. His three colleagues seemed to be interested
in what he is say, they are drinking and laughing. Jess tells
Natalie that she took "Analytical Approaches to Abnormal
Psychology " from him and really enjoyed the course. He
is a great professor. She realizes that he can help her so she
walks over to his table. Everyone is engrossed in the story
he is telling.
I'm telling you....
the woman pulls out a gun, into the courtroom, and shoots the
lover right there in front of everybody....
Oh, my god!
It's something out of a bad TV movie.
Excuse me Dr. Haver, I'm sorry--
Oh, Ms. Buchanan, join us if
! I'm just sharing some war stories about the
days covering trials up in Boston.
Well, I don't want to interrupt what's
going on, ummm, I was wondering if I can drop by during your office
hours and ask a couple of questions.
Why don't you ask right now, if you
have the time.
Besides, they can't keep up with me at this late hour, (looking
at the others) right!
Not in the wine department, that's
WOMAN #1: We've
got to teach class at 9 AM, unlike
professor who gets to sleep in!
Bingo! (He makes a salute with his wine
Yeah, I've really got to take off.
Ohh, okay abandon me.... they're all
abandoning me (they get up and are leaving) and leaving me with
the bill.... but that's all right.
(To the students)Tomorrow. (Motioning
to Jess) Alright. Okay Ms. Buchanan, join me.
Thank you (sitting down).
What can I do for you?
(A bit nervously) Actually, I.... I was
, I was hoping you could, uh, help me. I am writing this article,
uh, on sexual harassment on campus, and I.... I could use your
On the psychology of it?
Well, that, and, well you are also on on
the Ethics Committee, and there's been a couple of incidents.
What do you want to know?
(Trying to get the nerve to ask him a question)
Well, a student came to me and
me that there's a professor who.... that's been, that's been trading
grades for sex.
That's a very serious charge. Has she
made an official complaint?
No, and that's why I have to be extremely
careful about what I write. I could really use your advice.
Well, I could certainly try. Oh, I think
I need a refresher first. (Calling for another drink) PLEASE!
Scene Three: The student commons
at Llanview University, the DA points out that the victim had
six heart shaped tears on her cheek, Bo is impressed [She is
the sixth victim, I gather the other victims had as may tears
as they were the number victim. This was not mentioned before.
Also, is it possible the DA knew because he is the murderer,
or because of the other cases]. He wants to check out the crime
scene and Bo warns him not to touch anything or else. Bo and
McBain talk, they found the victim's person outside in the garbage,
and like the other victims she did not have her student ID.
Just then he gets a phone call, the tail they had on Ron Walsh
lost him. A male student comes in and says he saw her arguing
with some guy. Marcie over-hears and says she knows who it was,
telling McBain that it was *his* brother.
Scene Four: Antonio Vega is outside Rodi's just as Ron Walsh
leaves. They look at each other. Just then he gets a call telling
him about the latest victim in the Music Box Murders. He enters
the bar and notices Jess talking to Haver.
Haver is looking over her notes
and they are commenting on what she has written. He asks Natalie
who Haver is and she tells him that he is Jess' professor, "Professor
Somebody." Is he a touch jealous???
STEPHEN: The good professor
is exhibiting a need for control. Sleeping with students is
about power far more than sex (closes the binder).
Like rape, one person making another person
vulnerable, the only real enjoyment, if you can call it that,
is in the domination. Now you should tell this young lady please
bring the professor to the attention of the university. (Antonio
walks up) And then you (he stops seeing Antonio) --
ANTONIO: Excuse me (bending down kissing the
top of her head).
JESS: Oh hi, you made it. Uhm Dr. Haver, this
is Ahh... ahh.... Antonio Vega.
STEPHEN: (Getting up to shake his hand; looks
like he is sizing up Antonio) Antonio, pleasure to meet you.
ANTONIO: Same here.
JESS: Umm, sit down.
STEPHEN: Please.... please, join us.
ANTONIO: Sure (sits).
JESS: (Haver sits) Ummm.... I was just discussing
umm... with Dr. Haver this new article I'm writing on sexual
harassment. (She notices Antonio is upset) Is everything OK?
ANTONIO: (Whispering to her) I'll tell you
Just then a guy walks up to their
GUY: Jess, did you hear what happened?
GUY: Maddy Kensington was found dead at the
Student Union. It's another one of those Music Box Murders.
Jess looks towards Antonio. Haver looks shocked, surprised (??);
he then looks over towards Jess.
Scene Four: The police Station. Michael McBain (Al
in his body) is there for questioning. His brother John and
Bo are about to question him but the DA gets tough. He gets
testy when they ask about his fight with Maddy. He Admits
to her being his ex-girlfriend. They wonder why then he had
the fight with her. He wonders what is so against the law
about that. They tell him about her murder. They ask him why
the fight he tells them that she and her boyfriend hurt Marcie
Walsh and Al, and because of hurting Marcie Al died. They
wonder why he cares if he did not know Al. He blurts out that
he is Marcie's friend. Marcie overhears, she works at the
police station, she then shouts out "NO YOU'RE NOT!"
Bo meanwhile tries to get in touch with Gabrielle but cannot
find her. He warns her about the recent murder.
Scene Five: Meanwhile, she is out at some dive bar drinking
a Martini, and has obviously had a couple before that one.
Just then she looks horrified and sees Troy MacIver who supposedly
is in prison after going psychotic. She wonders if he has
Scene Six: Back at Rodi's Jess is shocked to hear about Maddy
ANTONIO: I'm going to get
you some water.
JESS: Okay, (He gets up and goes to the bar).
(Taking to Haver) Madison Kensington -- I mean, it's hard to believe.
I don't even know how I feel about this.
STEPHEN: I had Ms. Kensington in my Psych 205
class last spring, but I thought she was expelled.
JESS: Yeah, she got reinstated. Her parents are
tight with the trustees, they're big donors. Frightening to think
there's a killer loose on campus. (Antonio returns with the water)
What would make someone do something like this. Who is this guy.
Act Seven: Back at the dive bar, He wants to talk
to her when he saw her, he may never have a chance to apologize
for all the horrible things he did to her. He is now on anti-psychotics,
and has never been more lucid. He now realizes what he did.
She cannot be so sure. She tells him he tortured her, locked
her in a drawer in a morgue.
Act Eight: Back at the police station, Al in Michael's body,
is arguing with Michael's brother FBI Agent McBain. McBain
does not know why Michael would get into an argument with
Maddy over two people he barely knows. Michael is angry that
he is a suspect. Just then another cop brings in Ron Walsh
who is being belligerent about being dragged into the police
station. The DA shifts his questioning from Michael to Ron.
Ron accuses the cop of being overly rough, the cop denies
it. Marcie is there, she works at the police station, and
she defends her brother. They want to know why he ditched
his tail. Ron tells them he noticed someone was following
him and thought it was a mugger. The DA does not believe his
story. He tells him he better get a lawyer. The DA keeps hounded
him. Ron grabs his throat, he appears to have trouble breathing;
then collapses. John calls for Michael who is an intern at
the hospital, Al not having medical training does not know
what to do.
Act Nine: Back at Rodi's, Natalie brings very a dish of peanuts
to the table, and sits down.
NATALIE: Maddy Kensington, what was she doing
back in Llanview?
Haver is thinking intently, and playing
with his wine glass.
Well, she got reinstated
at L. U.
Man, this is happening every couple
of weeks (she gets up and goes back to the bar).
Yes, there's definitely a pattern
(Antonio and Jess look at him he notices their reactions to
his remarks and explains). I'm writing a book about the psychopathology
of serial killers. I just got back from Oregon (bragging???)
as a matter of fact--
Forty-nine young women. (Seems somewhat
proud of this) The FBI has contacted me several times. I do
most of my work with killers closer to home, of course, Leesburg,
Allentown. In fact there's a very interesting patient across
the river in the secure hospital section of Statesville Prison.
(He pauses for a few moments. Looking even more intense) I may
not have the answer yet, but I am determined to find out what
makes the sexual predator tick.
Act Ten: As if on cue, the next scene is of Troy and
Gabrielle. Troy is at Statesville, was Haver talking about him?
Troy assures her he has not escaped. Gabrielle cannot believe
he did not escape. The drugs are really helping him, he explains.
Troy tells her that he did not know she would be at some dive,
out of the way roadside bar. He now wants to take responsibility
for what he did. He tells her he saw her alone, looking sad
and thought it was because of what he had done to her. She tells
him not to flatter himself. She is sad because of her son's
death, Al is her son. He apologizes, he had read that in the
paper, but forgot. He is sorry, Al was a good man. He wonders
where Bo is, and if he is with Nora -- is he taunting her. One
of the things he did was go after Nora. Sad Gabrielle tells
him no, but she is sure that somehow they will get together.
Very bitter, or maybe more than that, he says that Nora *always*
gets what she wants. Troy also has a tattoo on his neck, it
appears to be a heart, and maybe even tears falling from it
-- the victims all had heart-shaped tears on their cheeks.
Scene Eleven: Al/Michael work on Ron. He notices that he was
eating and believes he is suffering from anaphylactic shock
from the shrimp he was eating. He works on him and eventually
saves him. Marcie sees him in another light now, could she be
warming up to him -- Al has until Valentine's Day to get her
to love him as Ron. Later he and his brother John have a good
talk. John is proud of him. Al lets it slip that he wanted to
be a lawyer, then covers when John said that he had always wanted
to be a doctor. Al tells him he is just joking.
Scene Twelve: Back at Rodi's Haver is continuing his theory
about the Music Box Killer.
STEPHEN: My theory is that each victim represents
something lost from the killer's life or taken away.
ANTONIO: Like what?
STEPHEN: Well I'm not sure. But this man is
definitely killing the same person over and over again. I....
It... It's someone he has an intense bound with--
JESS: What drives a person to do something
STEPHEN: Intense hatred or
love or both....
Scene Thirteen: The next day John goes back to Rodi's
and talks with Natalie, who is decorating the bar for the holidays,
she still cannot accept him after he used her. Natalie tells
them that her mother, Roxy -- thought her biological mother
is in fact Viki -- used to take her to the casinos Christmas
because she believed it was the best time to win money. He tells
her that he spent time in bars too, his mother is a singer.
Though when his father died she left, not physically but emotionally.
She is a very good singer he tells them with pride. He admits
that it took a while to deal with her -- also it appears that
Michael still cannot deal with something their mother did.
Haver looks very intense.
Scene Fourteen: Later that day John is on the phone with the
DA and balls him out for taking her guard off her. He reminds
the DA that because of him the information about her being in
the hotel when Karen was killed was slipped to the news, now
the killer knows about her, and she is in danger.
Scene Fifteen: Jenn has been in bed with Rex. She does not want
to continue with this and wants to go back to Joe. Later she
gets drunk. She goes to St. Andrew during a Advent service Joe
is performing. She tells everyone present that she is going
to leave him, it is the best thing for him, she is only ruining
his life, and hurting his career as a minister. She gives him
back her ring and stumbles off.
Scene Sixteen: The killer is scene preparing his satchel.
Scene Seventeen: Jennifer returns to Rex' place, and he places
her on his couch, and puts a blanket over her. He is overjoyed
at what she has done. He has always loved her and in his heart
they have continued to be married. Meanwhile a shadow is seen
outside the window, it is the killer. Rex leaves. Sometime later
she awakes and as she sits up, a pair of hands appear, it is
the killer. He throws a red pair of leotards around her neck
and starts to strangle her.
