Temptation Eyes – Episode 66

Temptation Eyes was the thirteenth episode of Quantum Leap’s fourth season to air, with Sam revealing his true identity to a psychic who is on the target list of a serial killer. In this episode Gerry and Iain discuss inappropriate conduct.

Sam leaps into Dylan Powell, a reporter who has raised the ire of top cop Detective Collins (Kent Williams), having begun to receive tip-offs from an active serial killer. Reporting from the scene of the latest murder, Sam and his cameraman partner, Ross Tyler (James Handy) meet ‘psychic’ Tamlyn Matsuda (Tamlyn Tomita), who catches Sam’s eye.

After revealing his true identity to Tamlyn, Sam sets his purpose aside to begin an ultimately doomed affair, pausing only to rough up Tony Beche (Rob LaBelle), an innocent man wrongly accused of murder by the so-called medium.

Temptation Eyes was directed by Christopher Hibler, the first of his four Quantum Leap episodes. The writer was Paul Brown, the twelfth of his thirteen stories for the show.

In this episode Gerry and Iain considered witchcraft.
