Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999–…): Season 9, Episode 1 - Alternate - full transcript

A woman's child is missing, but her multiple personalities make finding out what happened to the child more difficult. And the case is further complicated by the appearance of the woman's sister and the murder of their parents.

(male announcer)
IN THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM,

SEXUALLY BASED OFFENSES ARE
CONSIDERED ESPECIALLY HEINOUS.

IN NEW YORK CITY,
THE DEDICATED DETECTIVES

WHO INVESTIGATE
THESE VICIOUS FELONIES

ARE MEMBERS
OF AN ELITE SQUAD

KNOWN AS
THE SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT.

THESE ARE THEIR STORIES.

WELCOME BACK.

HEY, THANKS.

NICE HAIRCUT.

GUESS I HAD TOO MUCH TIME
ON MY HANDS.



IS THE CAPTAIN IN?

YOU BETTER CATCH HIM
WHILE YOU CAN.

HEY.

I WANTED TO THANK YOU.

DON'T MENTION IT.

I KNOW THAT YOU HAD
TO PULL SOME STRINGS

TO KEEP ME HERE
AFTER MY SUSPENSION.
YEP.

JUST HOPE IT DIDN'T
COST YOU TOO MUCH.

WHAT'S GOING ON?

I'VE BEEN, UH, TEMPORARILY
REASSIGNED.

CHIEF OF D's OFFICE.

WHY?

YOU AIDED
YOUR FUGITIVE BROTHER.

ELLIOT COVERED UP
HIS KID'S DUI.



FIN'S STEPSON BUTCHERED
TWO PEOPLE AND WALKED.

SOMEBODY'S GOTTA TAKE
THE HEAT.

BUT WE'RE THE ONES
WHO SCREWED UP.

ON MY COMMAND.

ONE PP CALLS THAT
"FAILURE TO SUPERVISE."

THAT'S INSANE.

YOU WANT INSANE?
GUESS WHO THEY PUT IN CHARGE.

I HAD NOTHING TO DO
WITH THAT.

IF DRAFTED, I WILL NOT RUN.

IF ELECTED, I WILL NOT SERVE.

YOU ARE LYING
LIKE A POLITICIAN.

YOU TOOK THE SERGEANT'S
EXAM RIGHT BEHIND OUR BACK.

WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?

I TOOK IT LAST YEAR
ON A BAR BET.

(Cragen)
ENJOY YOUR NEW OFFICE,
SERGEANT MUNCH.

DON'T LET THE POWER
GO TO YOUR HEAD.

IT WAS AN HONOR
SERVING UNDER YOU, SIR.

I'M NOT DEAD YET,
DETECTIVE LAKE.

WE'LL GET YOU BACK,
CAPTAIN.

TRY AND BEHAVE YOURSELVES.

EXCUSE ME.

I NEED TO REPORT A POSSIBLE
CASE OF CHILD ABUSE.

WHY DON'T YOU HAVE
A SEAT OVER HERE.

WE'VE GOT IT COVERED,
SARGE.

I'M TORN
ABOUT REPORTING THIS.

IT INVOLVES A PATIENT.

WELL, IF YOU TREATED A CHILD
WITH SUSPICIOUS INJURIES,

THEN DOCTOR-PATIENT PRIVILEGE
GOES OUT THE WINDOW.

I'VE NEVER MET THE CHILD.
I'M A PSYCHIATRIST.

I'M TREATING THE MOTHER
FOR POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION.

AND HOW OLD IS THE CHILD?
A YEAR.

JANIS CALLED ME
THIS MORNING ENRAGED.

SHE WAS GIVING
APRIL A BATH,

AND SHE SAID THAT NO MATTER
HOW HARD SHE SCRUBBED...

SHE COULDN'T GET
THE FILTHY SLUT CLEAN.

THE BABY WAS SCREAMING.

THE MOTHER'S NAME
AND ADDRESS?

JANIS DONOVAN,
182 14th STREET.

I'M DR. ANNA YOUNG.
THIS IS MY CARD.

WOULD YOU CALL ME
AND LET ME KNOW WHAT HAPPENS?

JANIS!

I DON'T HEAR A BABY.

JANIS!

CRIB'S EMPTY.

IT'S A DOLL.

(woman)
HELLO?

JANIS?

NO, I'M HER NEIGHBOR.
WHAT'S DOING ON?

(Stabler)
WHAT'S YOUR NAME?
BEV.

BEV, HOW WELL
DO YOU KNOW JANIS?

NOT WELL.

SHE MOVED IN WITH APRIL
RIGHT AFTER I HAD TOMMY,

BUT SHE DOESN'T DO
PLAY DATES.

(Benson)
DR. YOUNG TOLD US SHE NEVER
THAT MET THE BABY.

WHY IS SHE HOLDING HER?

I DON'T KNOW
WHO DR. YOUNG IS,

BUT THAT'S NOT THE WOMAN
IN THE PHOTO.

YEAH, WHO'S THAT?

IT'S JANIS.

(Munch)
HER NAME'S NOT ANNA YOUNG
AND SHE'S NOT A PSYCHIATRIST.

(Fin)
MUST BE SOME
KIND OF WHACK JOB.

LICENSE SAYS
SHE'S JANIS DONOVAN.

DMV's GOT AN '07 HONDA
REGISTERED TO HER.

THEN WHO'S
DR. ANNA YOUNG?

(Fin)
CAN'T FIND ANYBODY
BY THAT NAME.

I KNEW THERE WAS SOMETHING
HINKY ABOUT HER.

IT WAS SO OBVIOUS.

DID SUPERPOWERS
COME WITH THAT PROMOTION?

DR. ANNA YOUNG.
HELLO?

ANNA FREUD, CARL JUNG.
REAL CLEVER ALIAS.

NO CORRECTIVE LENS RESTRICTIONS
ON HER LICENSE EITHER.

HER GLASSES WERE FAKE TOO.

RIGHT, THEN WHY GO
TO ALL THAT TROUBLE?

SHE SENT US RIGHT
TO HER OWN APARTMENT.

YEAH, ON A WILD GOOSE CHASE.

SHE'S AN ATTENTION SEEKER
WASTING OUR TIME.

CASE CLOSED.

NOT SO FAST, GUYS.

THE NAME MIGHT BE FAKE,
BUT THE BABY'S REAL.

WE'VE GOTTA TRACK THIS KID DOWN
AND MAKE SURE SHE'S OKAY.

BY THE WAY, WE'RE TOSSING
THE APARTMENT.

(Munch)
NOT WITHOUT A SEARCH WARRANT.

WELL, THAT'S GONNA BE TOUGH

CONSIDERING THERE'S
NO SIGN OF FOUL PLAY.

LOOK, SHE REPORTED HERSELF.

HOW MUCH PROBABLY CAUSE
DO YOU NEED?

(Fin)
NEIGHBORS EVER SEE HER
HURT THE KID?

THEY KNOW NOTHING
ABOUT HER

EXCEPT THAT SHE'S
PAINFULLY SHY--WAIT A MINUTE.

SHE GAVE US HER BUSINESS CARD.
CHECK MY DESK.

NAME'S FAKE.

THE NUMBER'S PROBABLY
A DIAL-A-SCAM.

IF IT'S A TOLL CALL,
I'M NOT APPROVING THE CHARGES.

IT'S RINGING.

[rings]

[beeps]

HELLO.

(Lake)
HELLO.

DEAD END, LAKE.

MAYBE NOT.

I'M RUNNING THE ADDRESS
OFF THE BUSINESS CARD.

THE OFFICE OF DR. HENRY
CARLISLE, PSYCHOANALYST.

(Benson)
IS SHE A PATIENT OF YOURS?

SORRY, I'M NOT AT LIBERTY
TO SAY.

(Stabler)
YOU JUST DID.

CONFIDENTIALITY
ONLY APPLIES TO PATIENTS.

YOU NEED TO HELP US FIND HER.

WE'RE AFRAID THAT
SHE'S GONNA HURT HER BABY.

IF I BELIEVED

SHE WAS A DANGER TO HERSELF
OR OTHERS--

YOU'D BE ABLE TO TALK.

I GUARANTEE YOU
SHE'S LOST IT.

LOOK, WE KNOW
THAT YOU'RE TREATING HER

FOR POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION.

WHAT WOULD MAKE YOU
THINK THAT?

DR. YOUNG TOLD US.

SHE CAME DOWN
TO OUR SQUAD ROOM

WEARING GRANNY GLASSES
JUST LIKE YOURS.

THAT DOESN'T MAKE
HER VIOLENT.

HOW ABOUT CALLING HER BABY
A FILTHY SLUT

AND SCRUBBING HER RAW?

THAT'S NOT GOOD.

IT'S GONNA REAL BAD FOR YOU
IF SHE HURTS THAT BABY

AND YOU DON'T HELP US.

[Carlisle sighs]

SHE WORKS AT A MUSEUM.

IF SHE'S NOT THERE,

ALL I HAVE IS
AN EMERGENCY CONTACT.

PENNY TAYLOR.

THE BITCH FIRED ME.

AND MADE SURE I'D NEVER GET
ANOTHER BABYSITTING GIG.

SO WHY WERE YOU FIRED?

I HAVE NO CLUE.

JANIS WAS THE FLAKE,
NOT ME.

FLAKY HOW?

(woman)
I GOT HIM.

SHE DROPPED APRIL OFF
AT MY APARTMENT

EVERY MORNING AT 8:00.

SHE WAS SUPPOSED
TO PICK HER UP AT 6:00.

AND SOMETIMES SHE WOULDN'T
SHOW UP TILL 10:00 OR 11:00.

LET ME GUESS.
DRUNK, HIGH?

SHE LOOKED SOBER,

BUT SHE WOULD INSIST
THAT SHE WAS RIGHT ON TIME.

I WOULD POINT TO THE CLOCK.

BUT THEN SHE WOULD
START CRYING

AND ASK ME WHY I WAS
PLAYING TRICKS ON HER.

DO YOU THINK THAT
SHE COULD HURT HER BABY?

YOU KNOW, SHE THREW
APRIL'S BOTTLE AT ME ONCE

AFTER SHE SPIT UP.

AND ACCUSED ME OF FEEDING
HER HOT SAUCE.

I'VE WORKED FOR JANIS
THREE WEEKS.

I'VE NEVER HEARD HER
RAISE HER VOICE BEFORE.

ANY IDEA WHY
SHE DIDN'T SHOW UP

WITH APRIL THIS MORNING?

UH-UH, I CALLED
TO CHECK ON HER,

AND A STRANGE WOMAN
ANSWERED.

WHO?
SHE SAID HER NAME
WAS PETRA.

THAT JANIS WASN'T THERE.

YOU SURE THAT WASN'T
JANIS JUST MESSING WITH YOU?

ABSOLUTELY.
THIS WOMAN WAS RUSSIAN.

SO ANY IDEA
WHERE JANIS COULD BE?

THE ONLY PLACE
I KNOW OF IS WORK.

MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY.

(Morgan)
JANIS IS ONE OF OUR TOP
ARACHNOLOGISTS.

WE WERE LUCKY
TO STEAL HER FROM PENN.

SPIDER LADY, HUH?
NOBODY MENTIONED THAT.

I'M NOT SURPRISED.

SHE'S NOT VERY COMFORTABLE
AROUND PEOPLE.

A LOT LIKE HER FRIEND
THE LOXOSCELES RECLUSA.

THE BROWN RECLUSE.

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHY JANIS
DIDN'T SHOW UP FOR WORK TODAY?

AS FAR AS I KNOW, SHE DID.

SHE'S HERE?

NO, SHE'S OUT
IN THE FIELD SOMEWHERE

COLLECTING SPECIMENS.

SHE'S ABOUT MILKED
THE ONES WE HAVE DRY.

SHE MILKS SPIDERS.

FOR THE VENOM.
TAKE A LOOK.

(Morgan)
GOTTA MILK A THOUSAND
OF THESE BABIES

TO GET ONE TEASPOON.

PHARMACEUTICAL POSSIBILITIES
ARE ENDLESS.

COULD CURE HEART FIBRILLATIONS,
DIABETES--

SIR, WE JUST NEED TO KNOW
WHERE JANIS COULD BE.

I'LL GET YOU
HER FAVORITE HOT SPOTS.

JANIS HAS BEEN COMING HERE
ONCE A WEEK

EVER SINCE THE INFESTATION.

ODD GIRL.
YEAH, SO WE HEARD.

GOT ONE FOR YOU.

OH, THAT LITTLE THING
WAS HARMLESS.

THE REAL DEMONS
ARE IN THE RECTORY.

SIX-EYED SAND SPIDERS.

WAS JANIS HERE TODAY?

NO, YESTERDAY.

REVEREND FERGUSON
WAS DOING MISSIONARY WORK

IN AFRICA,
AND THE LITTLE BUGGERS

GOT INTO HIS SUITCASE.

I MEAN, I KNOW THEY'RE GOD'S
CREATURES, BUT--UGH!

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA
WHERE JANIS MIGHT BE TODAY?

SHE HAD A HEATED
DISCUSSION ABOUT IT.

(Benson)
WITH WHO?
HERSELF.

I COULD HEAR HER
FROM THE NEXT ROOM.

DO YOU REMEMBER
WHAT SHE SAID?

"I'M RUNNING AWAY FROM HOME.

"DON'T YOU THINK
THAT WOULD HURT HER?

I DON'T CARE, SHE NEVER
LISTENS TO ME."

[cell phone rings]
BENSON.

YOU THINK
SHE WAS PSYCHOTIC?

I THOUGHT SHE WAS POSSESSED.

BUT WHEN I WALKED
IN THE ROOM,

SHE SEEMED SANE AS CAN BE.

THAT WAS MUNCH.

JANIS' CAR CAME WITH LOJACK.

SHE'S HEADING NORTH
ON THE WESTSIDE HIGHWAY.

(Fin)
YO, SERGEANT MUNCH,

WE TRACED THE CAR
TO INWOOD HILL PARK.

OH, HOLD ON.

CHECK OUT THE BABY STROLLER
APPROACHING AT 6:00.

MOM'S WEARING A HOODIE.
CAN'T SEE HER FACE.

I'M ON IT.

EXCUSE ME.

SORRY.

FALSE ALARM.

HOW YOU GUYS DOING
IN THE PARK?

NO SIGN OF HER.

HEY, LIV.

CAVES ARE ON THE LIST
OF THE HOT SPOTS.

HEY.

SHE'S BEEN HERE.

JANIS?

PUT YOUR HANDS UP
WHERE I CAN SEE 'EM.

IT'S EMPTY.

WHERE'S APRIL?

WHAT?

WHAT DID YOU DO
WITH YOUR BABY, JANIS?

I'M NOT BIG ENOUGH
TO HAVE A BABY.

AND MY NAME'S NOT JANIS.
IT'S TAMMY.

I WANT TO GO HOME.
YOU'RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE

UNTIL YOU TELL US
WHERE YOUR BABY IS.

I ALREADY TOLD YOU
I DON'T HAVE A BABY.

I'M ONLY SIX.

OKAY, ENOUGH, JANIS--

MY NAME IS NOT JANIS.
IT'S TAMMY.

ALL RIGHT, TAMMY,
LISTEN TO ME.

DID YOU LEAVE APRIL
SOMEWHERE OUTSIDE?

YOU KNOW, IT'S GETTING
REALLY LATE,

AND SHE MUST BE
VERY COLD AND HUNGRY

AND REALLY SCARED.

SHE NEEDS YOUR HELP.
WILL YOU HELP ME FIND HER?

OKAY.
OKAY, GOOD.

SO WHERE IS SHE?

IF I TELL, HE'LL HURT ME.

WHO?
WHO'S GONNA HURT YOU?

I'M NOT GONNA LET ANYBODY
HURT YOU, I PROMISE.

NOW, DID YOU GIVE
APRIL TO A MAN?

NO.

HE JUST TOOK HER.

WHAT'S HIS NAME?

TAMMY, WHAT'S HIS NAME?

BURT.

BURT.

AND WHERE DID BURT
TAKE HER?

I DON'T KNOW.

COME ON.
FOR REAL.

ENOUGH, ENOUGH, ENOUGH.

I'VE HAD ENOUGH
OF YOUR GAMES.

THIS IS YOU.
THIS IS YOUR CHILD.

YOU COULDN'T HANDLE MOTHERHOOD,
SO YOU ABANDONED HER.

NOW YOU LET HER DIE
OUT THERE FROM EXPOSURE,

YOU'RE GOING TO PRISON
FOR MURDER.

YOU!

TAMMY, LET'S SIT
BACK DOWN.

YOU PACK QUITE A WALLOP
FOR A SIX-YEAR-OLD.

[Russian accent]
YOU, GET OUT OF MY FACE!

I WANT A LAWYER!

YOU JUST ASSAULTED
A POLICE OFFICER.

SO MAYBE HE'LL GIVE YOU
A DISCOUNT.

TWO CHARGES
FOR THE PRICE OF ONE.

SCREW YOU!
YOU CAN'T TAKE A SLAP?

GROW SOME BALLS!

THAT MUST BE PETRA.

WHO THE HELL'S PETRA?

RUSSIAN LADY THAT ANSWERED
THE PHONE THIS MORNING

WHEN THE BABYSITTER
CALLED JANIS.

WELL, WHATEVER HER NAME IS,
SHE JUST SAID THE MAGIC WORD.

I GOTTA GET THEM OUT OF THERE
AND GET HER A LAWYER.

I'LL HUANG AND TELL HIM
TO BRING THE BUTTERFLY NET.

OKAY.

(Huang)
FROM WHAT YOU'RE TELLING ME,

SHE HAS DISSOCIATIVE
IDENTITY DISORDER.

OR WHAT WE USED TO CALL
MULTIPLE PERSONALITIES.

RIGHT, AND I CALL IT
A CROCK.

WELL, YOU'RE NOT ALONE.

THERE'S A HUGE DIVIDE
IN THE PSYCHIATRIC COMMUNITY.

SO WHAT DO YOU THINK?

I THINK
IT'S OVER-DIAGNOSED,

BUT IN THE GENUINE CASES
THAT I'VE SEEN

IT'S ALMOST ALWAYS THE RESULT

OF LONG-TERM CHILDHOOD
SEXUAL ABUSE.

WAS SHE A VICTIM?

WHO KNOWS, IS THAT GONNA
HELP US FIND HER DAUGHTER?

IT COULD.
TELL ME ABOUT HER ALTERS.

HER ALTERNATE PERSONALITIES?

SO FAR WE'VE SEEN A SHRINK,
A LITTLE GIRL,

AND A TOUGH RUSSIAN.

AND I BET SHE DOES A MEAN
CHRISTOPHER WALKEN TOO.

LOOK, SHE'S PLAYING US.

NOT NECESSARILY.

WHEN A CHILD IS
REPEATEDLY ABUSED,

SHE CAN DETACH AND IMAGINE

THAT IT'S HAPPENING
TO SOMEONE ELSE.

ADDITIONAL PERSONALITIES
ARE CREATED AS NEEDED

TO COPE WITH THE TRAUMA.

OKAY, WELL, WE DON'T HAVE
TIME FOR THIS.

HER LAWYER'S ON HIS WAY
DOWN HERE, AND...

YOU NEED TO TRICK HER INTO
TELLING US WHERE THAT BABY IS.

SHE MIGHT NOT KNOW.

THE HOST PERSONALITY
IS OFTEN UNAWARE OF THE ALTERS,

OR OF THE ALTERS' ACTIONS.

(Benson)
TAMMY TOLD US

THAT BURT TOOK HER.

SHE WAS ABOUT TO TELL ME WHERE
WHEN PETRA SHOWED UP

AND BITCH-SLAPPED ELLIOT.

I'D SURE LIKE TO HAVE
FIVE MINUTES WITH BURT.

HOW DO WE GET HIM?

THE ALTERS ARE
A DEFENSE MECHANISM

BROUGHT OUT BY STRESS.

IT'S A QUESTION OF FINDING
THE RIGHT TRIGGER.

OKAY, TRIGGER,
LET'S GO.
OKAY.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING
IN UNIFORM?

PRESS CONFERENCE.
IT'S OUR LAST OPTION.

(Stabler)
WELL, MAYBE NOT.

DOC HERE THINKS
HE MIGHT BE ABLE

TO GET SOMETHING
OUT OF HER.

PEOPLE WITH D.I.D. CAN BE
EASILY HYPNOTIZED.

IF I CAN PUT HER UNDER,

THEN MAYBE I CAN BRING OUT
THE ALTER WHO TOOK THE BABY.

THAT'S A GREAT PLAN,
BUT YOU CAN'T TALK TO HER.

MUNCH, NO OFFENSE,
BUT I DON'T CARE

IF THEY CROWN YOU
CHIEF OF D's.

I'M NOT TAKING
ORDERS FROM YOU.

IT'S NOT AN ORDER,
DETECTIVE.

YOU CAN'T TALK
TO FRUIT LOOPS

BECAUSE HER ATTORNEY'S
ALREADY IN THERE.

WELL, THERE'S NO LAW AGAINST
TALKING TO THE ATTORNEY.

HE'S GOTTA GET IT
OUT OF HER.

TUNE IN TONIGHT
AT 11:00.

EVERY NUTJOB THAT'S EVER SEEN
A BABY WILL BE CALLING IN.

YOU'RE MAKING
A BAD DECISION.

I STRENUOUSLY
URGE YOU TO RECONSIDER.

WHO ARE YOU?

I'M DETECTIVE BENSON.
WHO ARE YOU?

I'M DORI.

WOULD YOU PLEASE
TELL THIS A-HOLE

THAT I DIDN'T DO
ANYTHING WRONG,

SO I DON'T NEED
A LAWYER.

WELL, IT SOUNDS LIKE SHE'S
CHANGED HER MIND, HESHY.

WHICH MIND--JANIS'S,
PETRA'S, OR DORI'S?

I DON'T THINK
SHE'S COMPETENT.

I THINK YOU'RE A TROLL.

YOU'RE FIRED.

(Horowitz)
YOU INVOKED YOUR RIGHT
TO COUNSEL.

YOU'RE STILL MY CLIENT UNTIL
YOU LEGALLY WAIVE THAT RIGHT.

BYE-BYE, BUTTHEAD.
BYE-BYE!

OHH.
BYE-BYE, BUTTHEAD!

I'LL GET THE FORM.

WE'RE BACK IN.
SHE WAIVED MIRANDA.

THERE.
SATISFIED?

NO, YOU SIGNED IT
"DORI JOHNSON."

THAT'S MY NAME, DUMBO.

IF YOU REALLY WANT
TO GET RID OF THIS GUY...

ALL YOU GOTTA DO
IS SIGN IT "JANIS DONOVAN."

[thunder]

HUH?
HERE.

MM-HMM.

I STILL SAY YOU'RE
MAKING A BIG MISTAKE.

CALL ME IF YOU CHANGE
ONE OF YOUR MINDS.

DORI, MY NAME IS DR. HUANG.
I'M A PSYCHIATRIST.

YEAH, I ALREADY
HAVE ONE, THANKS.

WHERE'S YOUR GUN?

IN MY LOCKER.

CAN I SEE IT?

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT.

IF YOU TELL US WHERE APRIL IS,
I'LL BE GLAD TO SHOW IT TO YOU.

IF I KNEW...

[giggles]
I WOULD SO TELL YOU.

DID YOU SAY THAT
YOU WERE IN THERAPY?

YEAH.

I DON'T KNOW WHY.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN
HYPNOTIZED?

DUH.

DO YOU MIND IF I TRY?

I DON'T THINK THAT
DR. CARLISLE WOULD LIKE IT.

OH, COME ON.

FOR ME?

NO.

WHY NOT?

I DON'T...WANT TO GO AWAY.

I FEEL SAFE HERE.

[thunder]

I'LL KEEP TRYING,
BUT GET HER SHRINK HERE.

HE'LL KNOW
HOW TO REACH BURT.

(Carlisle)
NONE OF JANIS' ALTERS
ARE VIOLENT.

PETRA SLAPPED MY PARTNER
ACROSS THE FACE.

WELL, JANIS MUST'VE FELT
EXTREMELY THREATENED.

PETRA'S HER PROTECTOR.

HOPE THE KID'S NOT OUT
IN THAT STORM,

BECAUSE WE GOT NOTHING
OFF THE CANVASS.

CHOPPERS SWEPT THE PARK
WITH INFRARED.

SHE'S NOT THERE UNLESS
SHE'S DEAD AND BURIED.

WE'RE STILL WORKING
ON JANIS.

GO SEE IF YOU CAN
CATCH MUNCH.

YOU GUYS SEE MUNCH YET?

YEAH, JUST CAME ON.

(Munch)
THE BABY IS A YEAR OLD

AND BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN
ABANDONED.

SHE WAS LAST SEEN
WITH HER MOTHER,

JANIS DONOVAN,

PICTURE'S UP?

A $10,000 REWARD
IS BEING OFFERED.
HE LOOKS GOOD.

IF YOU HAVE INFORMATION

REGARDING THE CHILD'S
WHEREABOUTS,

PLEASE CALL 1-800-555-0199.

THANK YOU.

[telephone rings]

SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT.

[multiple phones ringing]

I THINK YOU NEED
TO ADJUST YOUR TV.

THE BABY WE'RE LOOKING FOR
IS CAUCASIAN.

AND THE CIRCUS BEGINS.

[phones ringing]

JANIS, IN A MOMENT, I'M GOING
TO PICK UP YOUR WRIST,

AND WHEN I DO,
YOU'RE GONNA NOTICE

HOW LIGHT YOUR ARM FEELS.

WHEN IT'S TIME
TO BRING YOU BACK,

I'LL TAP YOUR SHOULDER.

YOU'LL FEEL WIDE AWAKE,
REFRESHED,

AND PERFECTLY CALM.

YOU FEEL VERY RELAXED
RIGHT NOW, DON'T YOU?

YES, DR. CARLISLE.

HELLO, JANIS.

HELLO.

WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO TELL ME
WHERE APRIL IS?

AT THE BABYSITTER'S.

YOU REMEMBER
TAKING HER THERE?

NO.

(Carlisle)
THAT'S OKAY.

YOU REMEMBER THE LAST TIME
YOU SAW HER?

WHEN I GAVE HER A BATH
THIS MORNING.

AND THE NEXT THING
YOU REMEMBER?

SEARCHING THE CAVE
FOR LATRODECTUS MACTANS.

THAT'S LATIN
FOR "MURDEROUS BITING ROBBER."

(Carlisle)
AHH, THE BLACK WIDOW.

(Janis)
YES.

THAT'S THE ONE
WITH THE RED HOURGLASS

ON ITS ABDOMEN, ISN'T IT?

MM-HMM.

SHE ENVENOMATES HER VICTIM,
LIQUEFYING ITS INSIDES,

WHICH SHE THEN SUCKS DRY.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

SHE KILLED THAT BABY.

AND AS YOU LISTEN,
YOU SINK DEEPER

AND DEEPER INTO
PLEASURABLE RELAXATION.

AND YOU REALIZE
IT WOULD FEEL SO GOOD

TO LET BURT TALK
TO US NOW, WOULDN'T IT?

[grunts]

WE NEED SOME
HELP IN HERE!

UNH!

APRIL IS GONE

AND SHE'S NEVER
COMING BACK!

LET'S GET THE CUFFS
ON HER.

NO, NO--

WHAT'S GOING ON?

GAS STATION ATTENDANT
OUTSIDE PHILLY

SWEARS HE SAW HER
WITH THE BABY THIS MORNING.

SHE PAY WITH A CREDIT CARD?

CASH.

WELL, SHE MADE GOOD TIME.

A WAITRESS AT AN IHOP
IN RENO

IS SERVING HER WAFFLES
AS WE SPEAK.

OKAY, CHESTER,
HAVE PHILLY PD

FOLLOW UP WITH YOUR GUY.

JANIS' BOSS SAID SHE WORKED
AT PENN LAST YEAR.

HOW'S IT GOING IN THERE?

(Benson)
DR. CARLISLE'S HAD HER

BOUNCING BETWEEN
PERSONALITIES FOR HOURS,

AND BURT'S NOT TALKING.

EXCUSE ME.

YOU PEOPLE HAVE MADE
A TERRIBLE MISTAKE.

APRIL'S FINE.

YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO COME UP
WITH A LITTLE BIT MORE

THAN THAT TO CLAIM THE REWARD
FOR THE MISSING BABY.

SHE'S AT MY APARTMENT.
I'VE BEEN WITH HER ALL DAY.

AND WHO ARE YOU?

CASS MAGNALL.
I'M APRIL'S MOTHER.

JANIS IS MY SISTER.

SHE WAS TALKING CARE
OF APRIL FOR ME.

AND WHO'S WATCHING
APRIL NOW?

MY LANDLADY.

THAT'S FUNNY.

WE QUESTIONED DOZENS
OF PEOPLE TODAY.

NO ONE KNEW
JANIS HAD A SISTER.

OR THAT SHE WASN'T
APRIL'S REAL MOTHER.

SHE MOVED HERE AFTER
APRIL WAS BORN.

AND YOU JUST POPPED BACK
INTO THE PICTURE TODAY.

YEAH.

WHERE YOU BEEN?

PRISON.

NO, JANIS DOESN'T HAVE
A SISTER.

YOU SURE?

WELL, I THINK IT WOULD'VE
COME UP IN THERAPY.

I'VE BEEN SEEING HER
FOR A YEAR NOW.

DR. YOUNG.

YES?

I NEED TO TALK TO JANIS.

I WISH I COULD HELP YOU,

BUT I DON'T KNOW
WHERE SHE IS.

JUST LET ME SEE HER, OKAY?

SHE'LL TELL YOU
WHO I AM.

SHE DOESN'T EVEN KNOW
WHO SHE IS.

WHY?
WHAT'S WRONG WITH HER?

YOU DON'T KNOW?

SHE SEEMED FINE

WHEN SHE DROPPED APRIL
OFF THIS MORNING.

WHAT WERE YOU IN JAIL FOR?

(Cass)
WHEN I WAS EIGHT
MONTHS PREGNANT,

I SCORED HEROIN FROM A NARC.

I JUST GOT OUT YESTERDAY.

10,000 BUCKS COULD COME
IN REAL HANDY, HUH?

GIVE ME A BREAK.

LOOK, JUST CALL
MY LANDLADY, ALL RIGHT?

SHE'LL TELL YOU
APRIL'S WITH HER.

THEY SAY A PICTURE'S
WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS.

EXPLAIN THIS.

SORRY, I SEEM TO HAVE
MISPLACED MY GLASSES.

UM...

IT LOOKS LIKE JANIS'
DRIVER'S LICENSE.

SO YOU RECOGNIZE JANIS.

OF COURSE.
I KNOW MY PATIENT.

DR. YOUNG, WILL YOU
STEP AROUND?

I'D LIKE TO SHOW YOU
SOMETHING.

JUST COME OVER HERE.

OKAY.

WHO DO YOU SEE
IN THE MIRROR?

I SEE YOU.
UH-HUH.

STANDING NEXT TO JANIS.
THAT'S RIGHT.

WHAT IS IT?

SOME KIND OF HIGH-TECH
REAR PROJECTION?

NO, THIS IS NOT A TRICK.
YOU SEE, THAT...

IS YOU.

[chuckles]

I'M SORRY, BUT I DON'T
UNDERSTAND THE JOKE.

(Munch)
HOW ABOUT THIS ONE?

KNOCK KNOCK!
WHO'S THERE?

I DON'T KNOW.

MAYBE A STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE
WILL JOG YOUR MEMORY.

HER SHRINK SEEMS TO THINK
JANIS WAS ABUSED AS A CHILD.

ANY TRUTH TO THAT?

I DON'T KNOW.

SHE WAS 16
WHEN SHE LEFT HOME.

I WAS ONLY SIX.

(Lake)
WERE YOU ABUSED?

YEAH.

YOU EVER TELL JANIS THAT?

WHY WOULD I?

SHE DIDN'T CARE.

SHE DIDN'T STICK AROUND
TO PROTECT ME.

WHAT DID YOUR DAD
DO TO YOU?

THE NIGHT JANIS RAN AWAY,

HE DRAGGED ME AROUND
THE HOUSE BY MY HAIR

DEMANDING TO KNOW
WHERE SHE WENT.

I DIDN'T KNOW,
AND HE DIDN'T BELIEVE ME.

HE MADE ME DRINK
HOT SAUCE

TILL I THREW UP.

WHERE WAS YOUR MOTHER?

SHE WAS THERE
IN THE ROOM.

WATCHING.

SHE NEVER SAID A WORD.

EVEN WHEN HE STARTED
RAPING ME.

I BEGGED HER TO HELP ME,
BUT SHE DIDN'T.

NO ONE DID.

TURN IT OFF.

THAT POOR GIRL.

HOW COULD JANIS JUST
LEAVE HER THERE LIKE THAT?

SHE KNEW
WHAT WOULD HAPPEN.

(Munch)
BECAUSE THE SAME THING
HAPPENED TO YOU?

NOT TO ME.

TO JANIS.

I WOULD NEVER...

HAVE LEFT CASS ALONE
LIKE THAT.

I WOULD'VE TOLD SOMEBODY.

A TEACHER
OR SOMEBODY I TRUSTED,

LIKE DETECTIVE STABLER.

DO YOU WANT ME
TO GET YOU A TISSUE?

I'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

FIN JUST CALLED.

CASS'S STORY CHECKED OUT.

APRIL WAS THERE
SAFE AND SOUND.

GREAT.

OF COURSE I MADE
AN ASS OF MYSELF ON THE NEWS

BY AUTHORIZING A CRAPLOAD
OF WASTED MAN-HOURS.

[telephone rings]

(Benson)
WHAT DO WE DO WITH JANIS?

PACK UP THE PHONES!
SHOW'S OVER.

DO WE E.D.P. HER
TO BELLEVUE?

I DON'T KNOW.
ASK HER SHRINK.

SHE'S IN REALLY BAD SHAPE.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
THESE ARE CONFIDENTIAL.

I'M SORRY.

I WAS JUST TRYING
TO FIGURE OUT WHERE I WAS.

JANIS?

THIS IS SO EMBARRASSING.
HAVE WE MET?

UH, TECHNICALLY, NO.
I'M DETECTIVE BENSON.

RIGHT,
I'M IN A POLICE STATION.

I'M COLLECTING SPECIMENS.

(Munch)
NOT EXACTLY.

NO?

YOU'VE GOT A NICE
PHOLCUS PHALANGIOIDES

OVER THERE ON
THE FILE CABINET.

GREAT, CAPTAIN LEAVES ME
WITH THREE MONTHS

OF BACK REPORTS
AND A TARANTULA.

IT'S A DADDY LONG LEGS.

BUT YOU KNOW,
WHEREVER YOU ARE,

YOU'RE ALMOST NEVER MORE THAN
SIX FEET AWAY FROM A SPIDER.

JANIS, YOU OKAY?

CASS.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?
IS APRIL ALL RIGHT?

YEAH, SHE'S FINE,
BUT WE NEED TO TALK.

CAN I TAKE HER HOME NOW?

UH, WHY DON'T YOU
GIVE ME A MINUTE?

I NEED TO CHECK
WITH SOMEONE.

SENDING JANIS HOME
IS A CRAPSHOOT.

(Carlisle)
I DISAGREE.

HER BEHAVIOR TODAY

DOES NOT ACCURATELY REFLECT
HER STATE OF MIND.

YOU HAVE BEEN HER
FOR D.I.D. FOR A YEAR.

SHE HAS FIVE PERSONALITIES.

ALL FUNCTIONAL.

WE HAVE NO GROUNDS
TO COMMIT HER.

SHE'S NO THREAT
TO HERSELF OR OTHERS.

SHE FLEW INTO A RAGE
AND THREW A CHAIR.

THAT NEARLY HIT YOU.

SHE'S HAD AN EXCEPTIONALLY
STRESSFUL DAY.

SHE'S HAD
TO GIVE UP THE BABY

SHE'S BEEN MOTHERING
SINCE BIRTH.

CAN YOU GUARANTEE THAT
SHE'S NOT GONNA GET WORSE?

I THINK SHE'S ON THE ROAD
TO RECOVERY.

LOOK AT HER.

SHE'S NEVER HAD A RELATIONSHIP
WITH HER SISTER BEFORE.

I THINK SHE CAN HELP JANIS
FINALLY CONFRONT THE ABUSE,

WHICH SHOULD LEAD HER
TO THE INTEGRATION

OF HER FRACTURED
PERSONALITIES.

LET HER GO HOME
WITH HER SISTER.

DAD, YOU HAVE TO DO
SOMETHING!

WHAT TIME IS IT?

9:00, LAZY.
AREN'T YOU LATE?

KATHLEEN,
LET YOUR DAD SLEEP.

HE WORKED ALL NIGHT
LAST NIGHT.

HONEY, YOU SHOULDN'T BE
LIFTING HEAVY THINGS.

JUST LEAVE IT THERE.
I'LL DO IT.

SHE'S NOT SUPPOSED
TO BE PREGNANT.

YOU'RE TOO OLD.
I'M IN COLLEGE.

PEOPLE WILL THINK
IT'S MINE.

DAD, YOU'VE GOTTA DO
SOMETHING.

KIDS AT SCHOOL YESTERDAY
SAW ME PICKING UP TRASH

WEARING THIS.

CAN'T GO AGAINST
THE JUDGE'S ORDERS.

COULD'VE SENT YOU TO JAIL
FOR THAT DUI.

YOU'RE LUCKY YOU ONLY GOT
COMMUNITY SERVICE.

[cell phone rings]
I'M NOT TRYING TO GET OUT
OF MY PUNISHMENT.

JUST GET ME RE-ASSIGNED
SOMEWHERE INDOORS

WHERE NO ONE CAN SEE ME.

STABLER.

DAD, IT'S SO EMBARRASSING,
PLEASE!

I'LL BE RIGHT THERE.

(Warner)
THE VICTIMS ARE FRANCIS
AND MOLLY DONOVAN.

(Benson)
WE MET THEIR DAUGHTERS
YESTERDAY.

I WONDERED WHY
THEY CALLED YOU GUYS IN.

NO SEX CRIME.

GUNSHOT WOUNDS
TO THE CHEST.

WE NEED BALLISTICS
TO CONFIRM THAT?

SHOULD BE EASY.

PERP LEFT THE MURDER WEAPON.

YOU CAN STILL SMELL
THE CORDITE.

(Stabler)
MOM'S EYES ARE CLOSED.
SHE CAUGHT IT IN HER SLEEP.

DAD WOKE UP TO THE BLAST

JUST IN TIME TO SEE
THE KILLER.

(Benson)
WE BOTH KNOW WHO DID THIS.

C.S.U. GOT A BLOODY FINGERPRINT
OFF THE DOOR.

HER NAME IS JANIS DONOVAN.

[cell phone rings]
I TOLD YOU WE SHOULD HAVE
HAD HER COMMITTED.

HEY, KATHY, NOW IS NOT
A GOOD TIME.

WHAT?

GET OUT OF THERE NOW.

ELLIOT, WHAT'S UP?

JANIS IS AT MY HOUSE
WITH A KNIFE.

[siren]

[tires squeal]

WHERE'S MY WIFE?
(officer)
STILL INSIDE.

WHY?
SHE WOULDN'T COME OUT.

WOULDN'T OR COULDN'T?

DORI INSISTED ON TALKING
TO BOTH OF YOU.

OH, GOD...

(Janis/Dori)
ELLIOT AND ME, IT WAS
TOTALLY LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT.

HE--HE KNEELED DOWN
AND WHISPERED TO ME,

AND THEN HE WINKED.

AND THERE WAS
THIS ELECTRICITY--

HI, ELLIOT.

DORI WAS JUST TALKING
ABOUT YOU.

HI, ELLIOT.

DORI, WHAT'S DOING ON?

I WANTED TO SEE YOU AGAIN.

(Kathy)
SHE WAS VERY UPSET
WHEN I CAME HOME.

SHE SAID SHE WANTED
TO HURT HERSELF.

THIS LADY SAYS
SHE'S YOUR WIFE.

IS THAT TRUE?

HOW DID YOU FIND OUT
WHERE I LIVE?

WHEN THAT REALLY SKINNY
DETECTIVE

LEFT ME ALONE
IN THE OFFICE,

I PEEKED IN YOUR FILE.

KATHY, YOU DON'T
NEED TO BE HERE.

YOU SHOULD BE GOING.

WELL, I GUESS HE MADE
HIS CHOICE.

TAKE CARE
OF YOURSELF, DORI.

YOU TOO.

SHE'S KIND OF FAT.

DORI...

WE NEED TO TALK.

I KNOW.

IT'S REALLY CRAZY, HUH?

PUT THE KNIFE DOWN
ON THE COFFEE TABLE.

WHAT'S WRONG?

WHY DO YOU SOUND SO COLD?

PUT THE KNIFE DOWN.

WHY?

I DON'T WANT YOU
TO HURT YOURSELF.

WHAT IF HE COMES AFTER ME?

I NEED IT.

TO PROTECT ME.

I'LL PROTECT YOU.

YOU CAN'T PROTECT ME.

NOBODY CAN.

WHO DO YOU THINK
IS GONNA HURT YOU?

BURT.

WHAT DID BURT DO?

HE KILLED
JANIS' PARENTS--AAH!

(Benson)
IT'S OKAY.
IT'S OKAY, LET GO.

ELLIOT, ELLIOT,
HE'S GOT ME!

CALM DOWN.
HE'S GOT ME, ELLIOT!

ELLIOT!
CALM DOWN NOW.

ELLIOT!

I THOUGHT YOU LOVED ME.

(Benson)
I DON'T THINK SHE'S
COMPETENT TO STAND TRIAL.

SHE CONFESSED TO KILLING
HER PARENTS IN COLD BLOOD.

SHE DIDN'T.
BURT DID.

ACTUALLY,
DORI FLIPPED ON BURT.

THEY'RE ALL THE SAME PERSON,

SO I DON'T CARE HOW MANY
NAMES SHE GOES BY,

I'M PUTTING HER BODY
IN JAIL.

THAT ROAD TO RECOVERY
SHE WAS ON

GOT PRETTY BUMPY THERE,
HUH, DR. CARLISLE?

I SHOULD'VE SPENT
MORE TIME DRAWING OUT BURT,

BUT I HONESTLY DIDN'T THINK
SHE HAD A KILLER IN HER.

CAN SHE STAND TRIAL?

SHE IS SO FRACTURED
RIGHT NOW

I DON'T THINK HER PSYCHE
COULD BEAR IT.

I'VE NEVER HAD TO MEDICATE
HER TO BRING HER BACK BEFORE.

IN MY PROFESSIONAL OPINION,
SHE'S NOT COMPETENT.

FORGIVE ME IF I DON'T HAVE
THE UTMOST CONFIDENCE

IN YOUR PROFESSIONAL
OPINION, DOCTOR.

I'M ORDERING A 7-30 EXAM.

I'M NOT SAYING I DIDN'T
SEE CRAZIES IN BROOKLYN,

BUT YOU GUYS ARE
CUCKOO MAGNETS.

HEH, YOU SHOULD'VE
BEEN HERE FOR THE CASE

WHEN THE WHITE SUPREMACIST
SHOT MUNCH IN HIS ASS.

HE'S STILL GOTTA SIT
ON A SPECIAL PILLOW.

[Lake laughs]
HEY, LOOK WHO'S HERE.

HEY, CAPTAIN, YOU BACK?

YEP.

HOW'D YOU SWING THAT?

WELL, IT DIDN'T HURT
THAT SERGEANT MUNCH

RELEASED A MANIAC WHO PROMPTLY
KILLED MOM AND DAD.

(Fin)
SHE MAY BE A MENTAL CASE,

BUT THE JUDGE RULED SHE WAS
COMPETENT TO STAND TRIAL.

MISS ME?

THANK GOD YOU'RE BACK.

I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU DO IT.
THIS JOB SUCKS.

WELL, YOU'LL BE HAPPY
TO HEAR THAT YOU'RE

OFFICIALLY RELIEVED
OF YOUR DUTIES AS ACTING C.O.

ANYTHING YOU NEED
TO BRING ME UP TO SPEED ON?

LIV AND ELLIOT WENT THROUGH
THE DONOVAN HOUSE,

AND THEY FOUND A BOX FULL
OF OLD POLAROIDS.

CONFIRMING
THE CHILD ABUSE.

YEAH.

WELL, THAT'LL BUY HER
JURY SYMPATHY.

NOVAK GONNA PLEAD HER OUT?

SHE TRIED, BUT JANIS
TURNED DOWN THE DEAL.

CLAIMS SHE'S INNOCENT.

OF COURSE SHE IS.

NOW IT'S JUST A MATTER
OF WHAT BOGUS DEFENSE

HER ATTORNEY CAN DREAM UP.

YOUR HONOR, MY CLIENT WASN'T
AT THE SCENE OF THE CRIME.

THAT'S FUNNY, HER BLOODY
FINGERPRINTS WERE ALL OVER IT.

OH, HER BODY WAS THERE,

BUT SHE WAS
AN INNOCENT BYSTANDER.

I'M CONFUSED,
MR. HOROWITZ.

SHE'S THE ONLY PERSON
BEING CHARGED WITH THIS CRIME.

I UNDERSTOOD SHE ACTED ALONE.

MY CLIENT SUFFERS FROM
DISSOCIATIVE IDENTITY DISORDER.

SHE HAS FIVE DOCUMENTED
PERSONALITIES.

SHOULD WE SWEAR THEM
ALL IN SEPARATELY?

THEY'RE DISTINCT INDIVIDUALS,

ONE OF WHOM COMMITTED
THE CRIME

WITHOUT HER KNOWLEDGE.

YOU CAN'T PUNISH THE HOST
FOR WHAT THE ALTER DID.

WE CAN'T JUST BLINDLY ACCEPT

JANIS WAS UNAWARE
OF HER ACTIONS

BASED ON HER WORD.

OTHERWISE, EVERY MURDERER
IS GOING TO USE THIS DEFENSE.

"I DIDN'T DO IT,
MY IMAGINARY FRIEND DID."

IT'S BUNK.

IN THE U.S. v. DENNY-SHAFFER,
THE COURT OF APPEALS DISAGREED.

IN FACT, THEY TORE
THE TRIAL COURT A NEW ONE

FOR NOT ALLOWING
THIS DEFENSE.

HE'S RIGHT, COUNSELOR.

I'M GRANTING
MR. HOROWITZ'S MOTION.

(Horowitz)
WHEN DID YOU FIRST
DIAGNOSE JANIS

WITH DISSOCIATIVE
IDENTITY DISORDER?

ALMOST A YEAR AGO.

OH, 11 MONTHS
BEFORE THE CRIME.

AND IF THAT TIME,
WAS SHE EVER AWARE

OF THE EXISTENCE
OF THESE ALTERS?

NO.

SO WHAT WAS GOING ON
WITH JANIS

WHEN AN ALTER
WAS IN CONTROL?

JANIS WOULD CEASE
TO EXIST.

SHE WOULD LOSE
CHUNKS OF TIME.

SHE WOULD HAVE ABSOLUTELY
NO MEMORY WHATSOEVER

OF HER ALTERS' ACTIONS.

WHAT PROOF DO YOU HAVE

THAT SHE'S NOT
MAKING UP THESE ALTERS?

I BROUGHT THEM OUT
UNDER DEEP HYPNOSIS.

WHICH YOU HAD A VESTED
INTEREST IN DOING.

ISN'T IT TRUE THAT YOU'RE
WRITING A BOOK ABOUT JANIS?

THE BOOK WAS INSPIRED
BY JANIS' ALTERS,

NOT THE OTHER
WAY AROUND.

WELL, IS THERE A BLOOD TEST,
BRAIN SCAN,

ANYTHING TO OBJECTIVELY PROVE
THAT THEY EXIST?

THEY HAVE DISTINCTIVE
PERSONALITIES, VOICES,

MEMORIES, BEHAVIOR,
EVEN HANDWRITING.

AND YOU CONTEND
THAT THESE ALTERS

WERE CREATED
TO PROTECT JANIS.

CORRECT.

SO IF THE HOST, JANIS,

DID KILL HER PARENTS.

WELL, THEN THE ALTERS
WOULD LIE TO PROTECT HER.

JANIS'S MIND CREATED THEM
AS A SURVIVAL MECHANISM

TO DEAL WITH HER
HORRIFIC CHILDHOOD ABUSE.

BUT YOU'VE BEEN DEALING
WITH THAT IN THERAPY

FOR A YEAR WITH NO SIGN
OF VIOLENCE.

WHAT WAS DIFFERENT
ABOUT THAT NIGHT?

I TOLD JANIS
FOR THE FIRST TIME

WHAT OUR PARENTS
HAD DONE TO ME.

(Novak)
HOW DID SHE REACT?

SHE CRIED.

AND THEN SHE GOT
A STRANGE LOOK ON HER FACE,

AND SHE JUST WALKED
OUT THE DOOR.

I KEPT CALLING HER NAME,

BUT IT'S LIKE
SHE DIDN'T HEAR ME.

SO WHEN YOU LAST SAW HER
SHE WAS CALM.

JUST LIKE JANIS ALWAYS IS.

NOT IN A RAGE LIKE BURT.

I DON'T KNOW ANY BURT.

WHAT'S THE LAST THING
YOU REMEMBER

FROM THE NIGHT
YOU KILLED YOUR PARENTS?

I DIDN'T KILL MY PARENTS.

WHAT'S THE LAST THING
YOU REMEMBER

FROM THE NIGHT YOUR PARENTS
WERE MURDERED?

TALKING TO MY SISTER.

AND THEN WHAT?

WAKING UP IN THE HOSPITAL.

THAT'S CONVENIENT.

NO, IT'S NOT.

IT'S HORRIBLE
LOSING TIME LIKE THAT.

WELL, LET'S SEE
WHAT YOU MISSED.

PEOPLE'S EXHIBIT "H,"
YOUR HONOR,

THE SHOTGUN YOUR FATHER
KEPT LOCKED IN A GUN CABINET

WITH YOUR PRINTS ON IT.

DO YOU REMEMBER THIS?

FROM MY CHILDHOOD.

DO YOU REMEMBER TAKING
THAT GUN AND WALKING

INTO YOUR PARENTS' BEDROOM

AND AIMING IT
AT YOUR MOTHER?

NO.

DO YOU REMEMBER SHOOTING
HER AND THEN YOUR FATHER?

NO.

OKAY, WHAT ABOUT THIS?

DOES THIS BRING BACK
ANY MEMORIES?

PLEASE STOP.

A LOT OF DETAILS
TO FORGET, JANIS.

YOU DON'T REMEMBER
ANY OF THIS?!

LEAVE HER ALONE!

(Judge)
COURT OFFICERS!

LEAVE HER ALONE!
LEAVE HER ALONE!

GET HER OUT OF HERE!

LEAVE HER ALONE!

LEAVE HER ALONE!

LEAVE HER ALONE,
ALL OF YOU!

"D.A. FLOPS, KILLER WALKS."
THAT'S ONE FOR MY SCRAPBOOK.

WELL, AT LEAST IT WASN'T
AN ACQUITTAL.

MAY AS WELL HAVE BEEN.

NOT GUILTY BY REASON
OF INSANITY

ONLY KEEPS HER LOCKED UP

UNTIL SHE CONVINCES THEM
THAT SHE'S SANE.

DID YOU READ CASS'
INTERVIEW?

TALKS ALL ABOUT THEIR ABUSE,
HER DRUG USE.

"SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

"INTERDISCIPLINARY
LAW JOURNAL.

SPRING 2001."

THAT'S INTERESTING.

DO YOU HAVE
A MAGNIFYING GLASS?

I THINK SO.

WHAT'S SO INTERESTING
ABOUT THAT?

I READ THIS ISSUE WHEN I WAS
PREPARING FOR THE TRIAL.

IT'S FULL OF ARTICLES
ABOUT MULTIPLE PERSONALITIES

AND CRIMINAL RESPONSIBILITY.

THANKS.

MAYBE CASS WAS TRYING TO HELP
HER SISTER OUT IN HER DEFENSE.

BEFORE SHE GOT OUT
OF PRISON?

"PROPERTY OF BEDFORD HILLS
CORRECTIONAL FACILITY."

[cell door opens]

YOU EVER SEEN THIS?

DEPENDS.
WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?

DEPENDS ON WHAT
YOU GOT FOR US.

(Benson)
D.A. HAS SOME PULL

IF YOU GOT SOMETHING
WORTH THEIR WHILE.

YEAH, I SEEN CASS
WITH IT.

I SHARED A CELL WITH HER
FOR SIX MONTHS.

I KNOW LOTS OF THINGS.

KEEP TALKING.

I CAN'T BELIEVE
THEY FELL FOR IT.

YOU KNOW SHE FAKED
THAT WHOLE THING.

HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT?

'CAUSE I READ
ALL CASS'S LETTERS.

HER AND JANIS PLANNED IT.

HELL, CASS READ THAT BOOK
SYBIL LIKE IT WAS THE BIBLE.

CONGRATULATIONS, JANIS.

ON WHAT?

YOUR BRILLIANT PERFORMANCE

AS DR. YOUNG,
PETRA, TAMMY.

MY PERSONAL FAVORITE
WAS DORI.

OH, AND WHO COULD
FORGET BURT.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT
YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.

MEMORY LOSS.
YOURS.

YOUR COMPUTER'S.

SEE, LUCKILY, OUR TECHS
WERE ABLE TO RESTORE

THE RESEARCH THAT YOU DELETED
ON MULTIPLE PERSONALITIES.

I WAS GOOD,
WASN'T I?

JANIS.

CAUGHT YOU IN MY WEB.

I'M STARTING
TO FEEL INTEGRATED.

I GUESS I'LL BE GETTING
OUT OF HERE PRETTY SOON.

SHUT UP, JANIS.
IT'S OKAY, CASS.

DOUBLE JEOPARDY'S
ATTACHED.

THERE'S NOTHING
THEY CAN DO TO ME.

YOU'RE RIGHT.

CASS MAGNALL,
YOU'RE UNDER ARREST

FOR THE MURDERS
OF FRANCIS AND MOLLY DONOVAN.

(Cass)
WHAT?!

NO, I DIDN'T SHOOT THEM.

SHE WASN'T EVEN THERE!

IT DOESN'T MATTER.
YOU CONSPIRED TOGETHER.

AND UNDER THE LAW, THAT MAKES
HER AS GUILTY AS YOU ARE.

YOU MIGHT AS WELL HAVE PULLED
THE TRIGGER TOGETHER.

WE WERE ABUSED.

YOU HAVE NO IDEA
WHAT THAT'S LIKE.

JANIS!

WE WILL NEVER
RECOVER FROM IT!

WHAT DO WE DO NOW?!
CASS!

YOU WERE SUFFERING
FROM BATTERED CHILD SYNDROME!

IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT!
JANIS!

IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT, CASS!

CASS!
