‘Perception’ Episode Guide (Aug. 5): An FBI Agent Turns Up Dead

“Prologue” (08/05/14) – After a missing FBI agent turns up dead, Pierce is forced to face the one case he was never able to solve.

When they discover that the killer is still out there, Pierce agrees to help Moretti, against the wishes of his therapist, Dr. Rosenthal (guest star Robert Curtis Brown), who believes it will only exacerbate Pierce’s condition.

This episode was directed by Alrick Riley and written by Michael Sussman.

TNT’s fascinating drama “Perception” features one of the most unique crime solvers on television, an eccentric neuroscience professor who is recruited by the FBI to help solve complex cases. Emmy and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Eric McCormack stars as Dr. Daniel Pierce, who possesses an intimate knowledge of human behavior and a masterful understanding of the way the mind works.

Although Pierce’s mind may be brilliant, it’s also damaged as he suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. Rachael Leigh Cook stars as FBI agent Kate Moretti, Pierce’s former student who has recruited Pierce to consult on cases. Also starring are Arjay Smith, Kelly Rowan and LeVar Burton.

In addition, Scott Wolf (“Party of Five,” “V,” “Everwood”) is joining the cast as a regular this season, playing Donnie, Kate’s ex-husband. “Perception,” which ranked as one of basic cable’s Top 15 series of 2013, was created by Ken Biller and Michael Sussman, who serve as executive producers with Amanda Green. The series is produced by ABC Studios, with McCormack also serving as producer.
