"The Confession"
AIRDATE: 12.15.84


WHAT SAID:  

Hooker pursues the man who raped a female priest, but he's stymied by the victim, who won't testify after hearing her attacker's confession.

SYNOPSIS:  

Beth, an episcopal priest, is attacked by two men while using an automatic teller machine after closing hours. The suspects flee as Hooker, Romano, Stacy and Corrigan respond to the call. The only clues Beth can give Hooker is that one suspect had a knife and called her "Marita." Hooker and Romano head to Tiny's, a bar frequented by the mercenaries, for some answers. They discover that two men named Dancer and Pyro have frequented the bar. Meanwhile, Dancer and Pyro attack another woman nearby. As the officers arrive, Pyro jumps in his car and drives off. Dancer fires his gun, but is shot by Corrigan first. Pyro is apprehended a short time later but Beth can't identify him in the lineup so he is released. Beth is then hypnotized, and while under, she identifies her attacker as Pyro. Later, as she is hearing a confession, Beth is stunned when a man calls her "Marita" and confesses to rape. Pyro is later seen leaving the church and Hooker realizes Pyro confessed to Beth to try to invoke her vow of silence. Hooker has Romano call Pyro's lawyer and they set a trap for Pyro. That evening at the church, Pyro stalks Beth. It is not Beth, but Hooker, and he and Romano arrest Pyro.
