Fear is something most of us have experienced in one form, or another. Charlie Eppes, is an innocent bystander who sees the senseless attack from a deranged man that could have cost him his life. The assault occurred right in the FBI headquarters, where Charlie is visiting his brother Don, something he does quite often. Nothing prepared the math genius for the carnage and plain mayhem that went on during the shoot out.

There is a victim from the rampage. The irony being that a man that was being interrogated by an agent about a sexual predatory case, died from a shot wound. That shot is determined came from the gun of Colby Granger. A bullet must have ricocheted, killing the suspect. Alec Schane was the trigger man. Since he was also wounded, and is recovering at a local hospital, he refuses to cooperate.

Charlie's fear is all too noticeable. Alan Eppes tries to reason with his younger son about the logic of what is going on in his mind. Charlie, who always offers to solve cases by applying math equations and using different formulas is suddenly rendered useless. The case is more complicated than it first appeared and it involves insiders that have taken money and are now involved with a South African criminal.

J. Miller Tobin directed the episode, which was written by Ken Sanzel. This chapter in the series shows a vulnerable side to Charlie, who is not ready to deal with an almost imminent death. His fears paralyze him in ways no one expected him to react.
