‘Perception’ Episode Guide (Aug. 12): Sniper Targets the Federal Building Lobby

“Silence” (08/12/14) – Donnie and Moretti are caught in the crossfire when a sniper shoots up the lobby of the Federal Building. When Pierce determines that the shooter is afraid of Extreme Low Frequency radio waves, he and Moretti take a trip to the Quiet Zone in Virginia, where they think the shooter is hiding out.

Meanwhile, an alluring woman named Shelby Buchanan (guest star Brooke Nevin) courts Donnie to run for political office.

This episode was directed by LeVar Burton and written by Raf Green.

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.
