Storyline

After being mugged in a mall parking lot, Allison meets another assault victim, Kira Hudack. With her dreams showing her being attacked again by the same men who mugged her, she decides to take the self-defense classes Kira offers. Soon her dreams show her the man who attacked Kira; or so she thinks and makes a terrible error. Det. Scanlon has to deal with family issues when DA Devalos tells him his sex offender brother Paul Scanlon is the suspect in the recent rape of a 15 year-old girl. The DA's office has an undercover officer in Paul's group therapy class but when Lee confronts him about the rape, Paul denies it and claims to be on the road to recovery. When the undercover cop is found dead, Paul becomes their main suspect but Allison's dreams reveal otherwise. Written by garykmcd
