The police get word that Troy has attempted suicide. However,
when Michael (Al in his body) examined him, he discovered
that beyond the drugs he allegedly tried to OD on, he was
pumped up with a large amount of hallucinogens. He tells John
who realizes that someone must have been drugging Troy for
some time, the person who has been setting up the killings
to appear as though Troy as the killer. John tries to talk
with Troy but he is too hopped up on what the killer gave
him to be of any help.
Scene Two: The site where Flash was attacked has become a
shrine, with flowers and other offerings. The police have
yet to announce who the victim is nor the fact that she was
not killed. To smoke out the killer they put out false information
that before she died she identified her killer. Viki stands
in front of the shrine contemplating. Finally she turns and
walks away, standing behind her is Dr. Haver. She walks towards
Extraordinary. All this for somebody most of these students never
VIKI: (Emtional and upset) Well.... we all
knew her, she was in our care, and she died.
And she was just a student, you know, she had
friends, maybe a brother and a sister. She was somebody's
daughter. She could have been my own child.
towards the spot where Flash was attacked. Haver watches.
She shakes her head.
Scene Three: Flash came out of her coma but is unable to speak.
Her larynx was crushed. The doctors do not know if she will
ever sing again, or even regain her speech. He father Cord
Roberts has come from London to take Flash back with him.
Asa is pleased to see his grandson, Cord. They have a nice
reunion. Back in London, Clint Buchanan, her grandfather,
is waiting; he will perform surgery on her when they arrive.
A private plane is waiting to take them away. They also agree
that she is safer there since the killer may come after her.
She says a tearful good-bye to Asa, and Riley; then she and
Cord leave, not knowing when and if she will return.
Scene Four: At the university Jessica is meeting with Antonio.
They kiss and she walks off to meet her Dr. Haver. Viki and
Haver are still talking when Jessica meets up with them. Haver
turns and watches as she walks up to them.
VIKI: Hello, (Kissing her) Sweetheart.
JESSICA: Hi Dr. Haver, I hope that you weren't
waiting for too long.
STEPHEN: No, no, no (pointing to Viki) President
Davidson's been keeping me company.
(Talking to her mother) I'm going to interview Dr. Haver for
that series I'm doing.
VIKI: Yes, so I heard. I have to go, I have
another meeting. Please be careful! Don't go anywhere
alone! No one is safe.
reaches over and gives Jess a hug and kiss.
VIKI: See you later. (Talking to Stephen) Dr.
STEPHEN: (Almost inaudibly) President Davidson.
watches as she walks off, and continues to do so for some
time, even as Jessica is talking to him. He seems transfixed
with Viki. She gets her purse to get the notes, as she talks.
So, um, Dr. Haver, you said in class the other day that, um,
serial killers usually fill (correcting herself) fit
a profile, uh...
reads her notes, and he still is looking away, deep in thought,
finally he seems to snap out of it when she starts reading the
serial killer profile.
....white males, between the ages 25 to 45, um, (flips the paper)
usually with high IQs--
STEPHEN: That would including (turning towards
her) about a million different men: Several
Nobel Prize winners, heads of state, Agent McBain, myself.
JESSICA: And my two brothers,
Well, one difference with your two brothers, and (pointing to
myself we all had the luxury of a loving,
supportive family, and a loving, supportive
JESSICA: (Smiling) That's my mom alright.
STEPHEN: It certainly is (looking
in the direction Viki went, looking oddly). She's quite a lady....,
reminds me of my mother. (Turning back to face Jessica) Uh,
motions to a near by bench. They sit. Haver looks off in the
distance, again. Jessica is intrigued by his story.
I'm not saying that my mother was a university president, but
she worked very hard.
(Cont. Looking as if he is remembering happy times) Two jobs,
day and night, and still found time to look after my brother
JESSICA: We're lucky.
STEPHEN: (Nodding in agreement) Yes. We are
lucky. (Turning around) That's the point, serial
almost always abused terribly when they were
JESSICA: Which leads to the abuse of animals
or property. I came across alot of juvenile arson.
STEPHEN: (Emphasizing it by raising his finger)
This is the thing to remember (slight pause) about serial killers,
they may be loners, but they seem just like everybody
else. They live in our neighborhoods, they work (motioning with
his hand) side-by-side with us. They could be lawyers, (the
camera focuses on Jessica) they could be could be postal workers,
students, teachers, even a cop .
Five: Awhile later, Haver and Jessica are walking through
You've certainly done your research on serial killers.
JESSICA: Um, there's alot to look over, but
I can hardly wait to read your new book.
STEPHEN: Oh, it's almost finished. Actually
(motioning with his hand) maybe you'd like to take a look at
it for me, I could use a little proofreading help.
is all excited, she is beaming.
I'd love to. I.... I.... I was a copy editor at The Banner
for a little while.
STEPHEN: Great. Great. You know, actually I've
been looking (a little chuckle)
for a research assistant and I just--
JESSICA: (Excitedly interrupts him, the stop
walking) I'll do it! (Realizing what she just did) uh.... I'm
(embarrassed; clears her throat and nodding her head, hopefully)
if that's what you're offering, I'll do it.
STEPHEN: Ah.... oh, yes it is what (flashing
a wonderful smile) I'm offering.
STEPHEN: Look, I know your plate is full, but
maybe I could find a way to give you some course credit while
you're do this work, what do you say?
JESSICA: (Extremely pleased and excited about
the prospect) That would be.... greeaat! I....
I'd have to work some scheduling stuff out, but uh, yeah!
That would be great! I.... can hardly wait
to tell Antonio.
Six: Back at the police station, Bo and Antonio are there. John
reports on his none too helpful meeting with MacIver. There
is a knock on the office door, Bo tells him that the information
stays between them. Bo goes to open the door and it is Haver
with some files.
Haver, come on in.
STEPHEN: Commissioner. (Handing John the file)
Agent McBain here's the notes you were asking for on my sessions
with Troy MacIver.
JOHN: Oh, thank you Doctor. (Looking through
the papers) Maybe there's something in here about his contacts
that could help us with something.
and Rae are waiting outside. Jessica tries to look into Bo's
office to see what is going on. Rae looks amused.
couldn't hardly wait to tell Antonio, (pointing to the office)
but it looks like I'll gonna to wait.
RAE: Ahhhhh, (looking very intrigued and nosey)
you know, you could tell me, maybe I think I would love
JESSICA: (Giggling) Ahhh... Ooookkkaay, um....
RAE: (Laughing too) Good.
JESSICA: (Chuckles, very happy about her news)
So Dr. Haver, um, asked me to be his research assistant for
this new book he's writing.
RAE: (Placing her hands on Jessica's arms,
really excited for her) Reeeaaallly?!
Jessica nods her head.
(Cont.) Oh Honey, that's soooo good!
REA: Dr. Haver is an up and coming scholar,
JESSICA: (She obvious has a slight crush on
him) And he's brilliant!
RAE: Not bad too look at,
RAE: (Chuckles; she also seems taken by Stephen)
No, not me! But I bet alot of the co-eds would love to be in
looks a little embarrassed at that remark.
(Cont) Fact I'm surprised no one has scooped him
JESSICA: Well, I don't know, maybe nobody can
live up to his mother (shrugging her shoulders).
JESSICA: The way he talks about her she's a pretty
shrugs again. Just then the door opens, the look over to towards
the office door.
then we see Antonio and Stephen walk out. Haver watches Antonio
and Jessica, his expression hard to interpret.
JESSICA: (Glad to see him) Hiiii!!!
ANTONIO: What are you doing here?
JESSICA: I was waiting for yoooouuu! I was
going to go back (taking each other's hand) to campus, and since
you won't let me go anywhere by myself....
JESSICA: (Act coyling, and flirtatious) You
can with me, and I can tell you the news on the way.
ANTONIO: Sounds good.
off hand in hand. Haver is still watching in the back, and
keeps his eyes on them as they walk off.
(To Rae)Okay Doc.
JESSICA: See you in the morning, Dr. Haver.
REA: Okay, kid.
STEPHEN: (Smiling) I'll look forward. See You.
walks over to Rae. He continues to look in the direction they
left. They just stand next to each other and smile, but say
Troy MacIver is strapped in his hospital bed, and is
ranting. A nurse tries to calm him, but he keeps muttering that
someone is coming. He tells her that the person says he is a
friend but is not. Then hysterically, as she tries to ask who
he is, Troy repeats that he is the killer. However, he is too
messed up from the drugs to say anymore.
Scene Nine: Back in Bo's office, John and Bo
are talking about the case. Meanwhile, we see a figure dressed
in dark clothing and dark leather gloves, it is the killer.
He is at some pay phone outside. He puts something on the speaker
part of the phone, to distort his voice; he then dials a number.
Back in Bo's office, John's phone ring.
THE KILLER: Agent McBain, I know who
gets up and walks to Bo, and silently motions to him.
(Cont.) But you still don't know me!
stands up and McBain puts the phone so the both can hear. The
killer begins to count down, the camera only shows his hand
and arm. The scene cuts back and forth between the killer, and
John and Bo.
(Counting down)Ten.... nine..... eight.... seven..... six.....
(Gradually the camera
pans up to reveal a chiseled chin -- the killer obvious is a
white male) five.... four.... three.... two.... one!
the killer reaches "one" the camera pans to Jessica
and Antonio kissing, they are on campus, only a few yards away.
The killer is using a pay phone, up a couple of steps where
Stephen and Jessica were walking earlier that day. Jessica and
Antonio embrace just as the killer hangs up.
