After getting a PET Scan, Melissa meets with a neuroscientist who believes brain patterns can identify psychopaths. Dr. James Fallon also happens to be a psychopath. He shares his incredible personal story before revealing her results.

Episode 10: Ghosts and Letters

Melissa is conflicted by how her father’s crimes have shaped her life and her career. She’s also conflicted about the paranormal ‘gift’ they both share-- seeing and feeling ghosts. Does this bolster Sam’s psychopath argument? And has she passed this trait to her son as well? 

Episode 9: Normalcy

Melissa married her husband Sam hoping to find stability and distance herself from her father’s crimes - but her inability to open up emotionally is destroying their marriage - and it leads them both to question whether Melissa is capable of feeling compassion - a psychopathic trait she and her father seem to share.



Episode 8: Happy Face

Keith Jesperson savagely killed at least 8 women between 1990 and 1995. Eluding capture, he taunted law enforcement and media with letters signed with a smile. But the detectives and journalist who helped end his killing spree say his reputation as a macho, murdering mastermind is not what it seems.

Episode 5: Misdirection

How did Keith get away with murder for so long? It comes down to luck... and the bizarre story of a couple who tried to take credit for the crime.
