Plot Overview

A paroled killer is out for revenge against his cohorts in a deadly armed robbery from 20 years prior and confesses his crimes to a priest, who turns out to be another party to the crime. The anguished man of the cloth is torn between upholding Canon law or breaking the Seal of the Confessional and telling Hunter the truth, which could prevent himself and his adopted brother, who lied in court all those years ago, from being victims themselves.


Arc Advancement



The first murder victim in the episode is referred to in the episode as Joe Dorman, but the final credits call him John Dorman.
