Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Brilliant but dangerously unstable college student Seth Todtmann (Peter Stebbings) has developed a cold-fusion bomb, which he threatens to detonate unless the government meets his demands. Professional negotiator John Martin (Brett Cullen) is sent in by the Department of Energy Nuclear Response Team to talk sense to Seth. Soon, however, Martin realizes that Seth will be satisfied with nothing less than a series of legally sanctioned murders, wiping out the people who have "wronged" the boy in the past -- including his own foster parents. "Final Exam" was first broadcast on June 26, 1998.
