Production Information[]

Production Number:
Aired: February 21st, 1988

Producer: Robert F. O'Neill


While in Connecticut for a convention, Jessica hears the dying confession of a hit man, and uncovers a mysterious safe house housing an important foreign dignitary.


Second episode in which there are two separate killers for both victims, albeit working together; the first was Trial by Error.

Jackson mentions that Jessica outwitted a KGB agent and helped two Russian ballet dancers defect, referring to the events of Death Takes a Curtain Call.

Victim(s): Adams & Delgado

Killer(s): Unnamed hit man & Charlie Van Buran

Cause of death: Two gunshots; strangulation.

Motive: To prevent Adams from overseeing the safe house, so Van Buren could safely assassinate Delgado, due to being paid by representatives from his country to do so.

Don't you think that it's very juvenile to kill Delgado to prevent who oversees what ?

Also, Van Buren may have known where the hit went down, showing that he had put the hit in motion, but still Jackson would never allow to agents to be there at the same time to allow the other to kill who, now would he ?
