Storyline

Janice is a lab technician working in the Psychology Department at a local university. She also hates men, or a least those whom she feels don't pay proper attention to her. Unfortunately for Fitz, she has taken quite a shine to him and is now writing him anonymous love letters and killing men to get his attention. Things become far too real however when her next victim is Fitz's son, Mark. Fitz's home life is still a shambles. Judith feels neglected and starts a relationship with his brother Danny.
