Storyline

A serial killer, never caught, leaves clues and messages signed 'BSP' after quickly murdering each man but torturing his girl to death. His last case is an exception, the detective in charge finds his wife murdered while has pre-teen daughter had to watch. Thirty years later, she's still obsessed by the case, which drove her dad insane, and a police detective herself. When the whole cycle starts again, she gets convinced it's not BSP but an ambitious copy-cat, but he certainly outsmarts her every time. He also makes clear she's to be his final kill. Meanwhile she alienates even colleagues with her arrogance and obsession, finally to be suspended as the FBI takes over. Written by KGF Vissers

Help me make your husband understand what it is what I do

***SPOILERS*** Lifetime Network serial murder flick that spans 30 years and includes more then a dozen victims. It all starts in 1977 when this psycho dubbed the PBS Killer went on a rampage murdering some half dozen people that ended with the brutal murder of Mrs. Linda Joyce, Jean Nicola, in what is now called, not back then in 1977, a home invasion. In his haste the BPS killer left alive Linda's 10 year old daughter Jeanne, Teri Polo, whom he promised to finish off in a future date. It was Jeanne's father detective Don Joyce, Stephen Spender, who spent that next few years trying to hunt down his wife's killer only ending up insane and later in frustration blowing his brains out. He's considered by many to have been the BPS 'last victim.

It's now 30 years later and he's at it again the BPS Killer is back and murdering persons the very same way he did back then in 1977. The only difference now is that Jeanne is now all grown up and a hot shot lady detective in the local police force. It's Not only that she's the only hot on his trail but who can also identify him. What Jeanne doesn't quite realize is that his grand plan is to finish her off like he told her he would some 30 years ago. And all his latest killings is to lure her into the trap that he set for her without her knowing about it. And even more surprising is that the killer has planned that for years getting close to Jeanne before she suspects who he is.

The BPS Killer is not at all that difficult to spot even if he changed his appearance over the years when he went from a person in his 20's or 30's to someone eligible,or so it seems, to collect a social security check. It's just that he got a lot more brazen and stupider over the years making him far more identifiable and ineffective because of it. He does make an attempt to murder Jeanne at the end of the movie but he's so full of himself in how indestructible he is as well as smart that he screwed himself up instead. Just when he had Jeanne where he wanted her his big mouth , in bragging how smart and clever he is, betrayed him by giving Jeanne the chance , by dropping his guard, to finally finish him off before he could put his evil and crazy plans for her into effect!
