Storyline

Eddie is released after an eight year prison sentence. Meeting up with his partner, Fenn, he swears murderous revenge on the man who put him there. This turns out to be the new husband of McCall's ex-wife, Kay. As Eddie becomes more deranged and his harassment increases, scaring even Fenn and terrifying the couple, Kay realizes she needs to turn to the one person in her life best suited to handle such a situation, the Equalizer, aka McCall. Reluctant but willing, McCall's attempt to ward Eddie off trigger Eddie's psychopathic rage resulting in the cold blooded murder of his parole officer, and the double revelation of the darker motive behind Eddie's mission, and the deeper darker involvement between Kay's husband and Eddie. Enlisting Fenn, now fearful of the consequences of Eddie's behavior McCall tries to intercede and resolve the situation before anyone else suffers, even Eddie. Written by jmoira-1
