Season 1

1. Once Upon a Time in the City of New York
gs: John McMartin (Charles Chandler) Ron O'Neal (Isaac Stubbs) Ray Wise
(Tom) Ava Lazar (Carol Stabler)

Catherine Chandler comes from a rich family. She works for her father at his
law firm. Her life is full of people that are nothing more than acquaintances.
She feels as if everything in her life is superficial. While at yet another party
she decides to just leave. As she is walking through the park she is mistaken
for someone else and is pulled into a van full of thugs. They slash her face and
beat her up, then they push her out of the van and leave her for dead. A
shadowy figure appears and carries her to secret set of forgotten tunnels
below the city. There he bandages her wounds and helps to nourish her back
to health. One day when Catherine is feeling better and has regained her
some of her strength she begins to take the bandages off of her face. She walks
to the wall and finds something to look into and she sees what the thugs have
done to her face for the first time. Then she sees finally who her rescuer was.
She screams at his appearance and throws what she was looking in at him. He
quickly leaves. Later on he brings her some food. He has pulled his hood up
so that it is hard for her to see what he looks like. She asks him to wait as he
starts to leave. He stops and turns toward her. She pulls back the hood so that
she can see his face. This time there is no scream just silence as she looks at
him. They begin to form a friendship. When she is well enough Vincent leads
her to a place right beneath her apartment building. Catherine has plastic
surgery to hide the hideous scars on her face. After her surgery she is
determined that her life will make a difference. She quits working in her
father's firm and begins to work at the District Attorney's office. She also take
a self defense class. During this time Vincent realizes just how strong their
bond is. He can feel everything that she does. He knows whatever she is
feeling because he can sense it. Catherine sets out to find the woman who her
attackers were really looking for. She finds her and puts her up in a safe
house to protect her until she testifies against her attackers. While there the
attackers find the woman and kill her. Then they go after Catherine. Vincent
senses her fear and goes to her. Just as Catherine begins to think that all hope
is lost Vincent OEMs through the wall and saves her from her attackers. He
then grabs her hand and they quickly disappear below the city until he takes
her to the place beneath her apartment building. She asks if she will ever see
him again and his reply is that he doesn't know.

b: 25-Sep-1987 pc: 001 w: Ron Koslow d: Richard Franklin

NOTE: This was the beginning of the show that stayed through the first two
seasons. It changed in the first episode of the third season, which was after
Catherine died. Vincent: This is her world, a world apart from mine. Her
name is Catherine. From the moment I saw her she captured my heart with
her beauty, her warmth, and her courage. I knew then as I know now, she
would change my life forever. Catherine: He comes from secret place far
below the city streets. Hiding his face from strangers. Safe from hate and
harm. He brought me there to save my life and now wherever I go he is with
me in spirit. For we have a bond stronger than friendship or love. And
although we can not be together we will never, ever be apart.
This beginning was put to use on the second episode, which was called "
Terrible Savior". It was used until the second episode of the third season,
which was called " Walk Slowly".
