Professor Stephen Haver Files
Episode Three

Background: Things have been relatively silent regarding the killings. The police have traced fibers found at a couple of scenes to Statesville prison. Later Gabrielle admits to seeing Troy and tells Bo that he has told her he is out on passes and is taking drugs to curtail his psychotic behavior. They check up on Troy and discover that a nurse at the prison was found dead, injected with drugs; it appears Troy has escaped. We see him out and about at another dive bar. Nora decides to smoke Troy out and does an on-air press conference asking him to give himself up.

Haver is in a Tux, with a black and with bow tie and matching cummerbund.

JESSICA: (Fiddling with the shoulder straps of her purse) You know I have some reservations about doing a feature article on these murders, you never want to feel like you are fanning the flame.

OLTL003A: Jess asks for his adviceSTEPHEN: I agree, but ultimately, making sure the public is aware is the most important thing for everyone involved.

JESSICA: I know you've done a lot of research on homicides such as these, and I was wondering if I could run some ideas past you?

STEPHEN: Sure, call me at my office.

JESSICA: (Seems a little taken by the good professor) Great! And you know, I'm really enjoying your lectures, a lot.

STEPHEN: (Nodding) Good.


STEPHEN: Good, I'm glad to hear that.

RAE: Hi Stephen.

STEPHEN: We'll see you. Happy New Year.

STEPHEN: Tell me, shall I punch the man out or shall we just rise above it.

RAE: "Rise above it!" Should be our New Year's resolution. Or maybe we should just give up New Year's resolutions altogether, what do you think (Laughing)?
