Movie Summary
Season Two of the quasi-paranormal crime drama Profiler begins with the resolution of the Season One cliffhanger, as psychic forensic specialist Sam Waters (Ally Walker) takes charge of the Violent Criminal Task Force while supervisor Bailey Malone (Robert Davi) hovers between life and death in a hospital bed. Having quit the VCTF at the end of the previous season, John Grant (Julian McMahon) comes back to provide Sam with moral support; at the same time, another team member, Brubaker (played during Season One by Michael Whaley) has departed without explanation. Also, Baileys rebellious daughter Frances (Heather McComb), who is essentially responsible for her fathers plight, is now a fugitive from justice. Later on, Frances will return, intending to hurt her father by driving a wedge between himself and Grant. New to the cast is Sheik Mahoumad-Bay as Detective Marcus Peyton, a skeptic who doubts Sams ability to see through the eyes of serial killers and their victims, making his first appearance in the episode Jack Be Nimble, Jack Be Quick. Marcus will remain on the series only until the end of the season. That title is one of many references to Sams bete noire, the psychotically brilliant and frustratingly elusive multiple murder Jack of All Trades, who killed Sams husband and apparently will not rest until he adds Sam and everyone else whom she holds dear to his list of victims. The Jack throughline permeates virtually every episode this season, especially those spotlighting the killers protégé, paroled felon Sharon Lescher (Traci Lords), whom he has brainwashed, renamed Jill of All Trades, and voyeuristically made over in the image of Sam Waters! Jill not only goes on her own murder spree copying Jacks modus operandi, but she also succeeds in wiping out Sams first-season sweetheart, ATF explosives expert Coop Cooper (A Martinez). In an effort to help Sam get over this tragedy, her best friend Angel (Erica Gimpel) arranges a reunion of several of Sams old friends--but even this is marred by a murder, which also launches a disturbing new story arc. Eventually, Sam is able to arrest Jill, wounding Jack in the process. While Jack remains out of sight, Sam has other problems relating to her daughter Cloe (Caitlin Wachs), custody of whom may be taken away from Sam and placed in the hands of her resentful in-laws. In the seasons two part finale Root of All Evil, Sam struggles to come to grips with her personal travails as she sets up trap for Jack using Jill as bait--but the results are far from successful! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
