SYNOPSIS: Pierce (PhD Neuroscientist) has paranoid schizophrenia, which causes hallucinations and delusions. But at the same time, he has a keen intellect and knowledge of how the human brain works, which allows him to discern patterns and underlying motives in human behavior.


Against medical advice, Pierce decides to go off his medications and use his hallucinations to help give him an insight into crimes that his conscious mind may not be able to process.


"They are the voices in my head," McCormack tells Zap2it, talking in his trailer between scenes on the show's sets in a smaller city north of Los Angeles. "It's the other part of my brain talking to me and saying, 'You know the answer to this; you've just got to work through it.'"
