Jerry Orbach gives a classic performance as a talk-show host closely modeled on Morton Downey Jr. -- a highly conservative, highly combative man who whips his audiences into frenzies (all pre-staged to attract viewers). The host actually has a smart, brave side which he tries hard to conceal -- but he saves Cecelia's life when both of them are menaced by a stalker. When a fight breaks out in the studio during a taping (exactly mirroring a fight on Geraldo Rivera's talk show the very day before this episode was broadcast) someone in the overhead lighting grid takes advantage to start blasting away at the host with a huge revolver. A.J. and Rick identify the stalker and start hunting for him as he goes over the wall into an adjacent empty studio, but can they stop him before he kills the talk show host, who also went next door?
