AIRDATE: 09.25.82


WHAT SAID:  

Hooker links a recent homicide and an unsolved case he investigated eight years earlier.

SYNOPSIS:  

Hooker and Romano are called to the scene of an assault. Approaching the scene, they encounter the suspect, Paul Vardik, escaping on his motorcycle. A heated chase ensues, but Vardik escapes. They return to the crime scene, and Hooker notices the stab wounds on the victim are the same MO as a killer who struck eight years previously, killing four victims and wounding the fifth. Hooker is afraid for the fifth victim, Lynne Hartmanm an old girlfriend, believing the killer will go after her again, so he tracks her down to warn her. Hooker asks for help from a local fisherman, Manelli, who identifies the victims' wounds as that of a Turkish fishing knife. With detectives working on the case, Hooker has lunch with Lynne. While they are eating, Lynne's friend, Carla, arrives in a panic. Apparently Vardik has been looking for her. Believing Lynne is in danger, Hooker and Romano take turns watching over her. When Romano arrives for his shift, he is knocked out by Vardik. Hooker, who is driving off, hears Lynne's screams when Vardik approaches her, and hurries back. Vardik again escapes. The next day, Vardik is finally identified. Lynne is under contant surveilance by the police, but Vardik is still able to get to her. He takes her at knifepoint to the harbor. Hooker is alerted and pursues them down to the harbor where he is able to capture Vardik and save Lynne.
