A "mentalist/magician" comes into possession of a hearing aid that allows him to hear the thoughts of other people.
Much like many other shows that go along with the "Magician Makes A Comeback" type story lines, our magician in this episode is of course down on his luck and failing miserably.
Once he comes into possession of the hearing aid, it obviously reboots his career and he fires his partner. Big surprise, eh? When using the hearing aid for his act, he reads other people's thoughts and impresses them. Then he learns that he can use the hearing aid to get payback at other people by essentially killing them with their own thoughts.
Eventually he becomes a victim of his own evil when outsmarted by the group attempting to recover the item.
This is a very average episode and the acting isn't nearly up to par. That combined with a storyline that has been used since the 40's.
Also, it doesn't hold up well considering all of the potential they had with the freedom of telling the story in the "Friday The 13th" manner.
