Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Several unlikely assassins, all minor government functionaries, have themselves died immediately after bumping off their employers. While investigating, the IMF discovers that all of the killers had been treated at the same Boston stress clinic. Posing as an alcoholic newspaperman, IMF agent Nicholas Black tries to get the goods on clinic head Dr. Philip Westerly (Peter Curtin), only to be subjected to Westerley's diabolical "reprogramming" process as well. Originally telecast on January 20, 1990, "The Assassin" was written by Cliff Greene.
