It takes a while until Hauser recognizes the MO of Webb Porter, who drowns women in their bathtubs at home and auditions as violinist. He suffered from tinnitus since his mother tried to drown him as a young child. Dr. Lucy turned the frightened mental wreck into a self-confident musician. Dr. Milton Beauregard tells Hauser how Webb may save Lucy's life if caught in time, Doc and Madsen help track him down. Written by

At just over 11 minutes, the pre-title sequence of this episode is among some of the longest ever made in the American 42-minute-long-on-the-average format that leaves a more or less standardized amount of time out of a one-hour time slot for commercial breaks, the first of which almost always comes after the title sequence.
