A nebbish helps his therapy group by bombing the nemeses they whine about. Kojak can't find a pattern in the serial murders, especially after an innocent secretary who just moved to Manhattan is blown up, but he knows there is one because she was killed in a parking space with her name on it. NYPD holds back that the bombs all come in brown paper bags, to fend off serial confessors. Danny Zucco can't wait for his next group to see the joy he's brought to his adopted family.

Exponential Empathy
5 December 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Steven Keats is the guest cast member in this Kojak episode who carries the show and dominates it as a mentally disturbed man in group therapy who believes in exponential empathy. Keats who works in a hardware store and has the equipment to make bombs has been bombing various places and people who the fellow members of his therapy group talk about in their sessions. He just wants to bring some sunshine into their livs.

The fact he's killing people and destroying property apparently is not really relevant to him. But when pretty young secretary Brit Lind is killed with a car bomb, that brings Telly Savalas into the picture with the Manhattan South Squad.

What was fascinating here to me was in Law And Order they have many shows where patient/doctor privilege is a big legal issue. Savalas doesn't really care, he joins the group and ferrets out Keats whom he suspects.

A young Dabney Coleman is in the cast playing his usual dog of a character who is two timing his wife Elizabeth Allen with Jane Elliot. Allen is a member of the group therapy gathering with Keats and she keeps some secrets.

Good thing Keats gets killed I have a feeling if he had lived some judge would have tossed the case on technical grounds.
