Teleplay by: Bryan Goluboff

Alex announces he broke up with Laura, having realized she was just using him. He provokes Paul with his suspicion that there is something going on between Laura and Paul. Alex pushes Paul to admit what he really thinks of him – that he's a murderer – but Paul refuses to judge him. When Alex taunts Paul with knowledge of his private life – that he knows Paul's wife is having an affair and Paul has feelings for Laura – Paul explodes and attacks Alex physically. Disturbed, he cancels his other sessions, just as his wife enters to announce her affair is completely over.
