I'm sure he controlled her like he controlled me.

A shrink (John Shea) was killed in his own clinic. Detectives found a mattress with teddies and hairbrush related to a young girl in the closet. He was married with two kids and his wife was soon pointed out as prime suspect as well as some of his patients. Police found out he actually protected the teenage girl from her abusive father but she didn't know anything about the murder. Another troubled kid led detectives to a tape hidden in doctor's drawer at the clinic (proof he had an affair with an underage girl) and his daughter confessed about their mother's location at the time of the murder, before changing her mind after the arrest. Did she have enough strength to confirm the truth at trial? Anyway, her mother stated she was raped by the doctor times before, because she had been a patient as well (she was a drug & sex addict)....She knows very well how to defend herself, even without a lawyer.

Dr. Olivet had to face ghosts from the past at trial (she was raped by a gynecologist fifteen years before, I remember that episode). The end is a little shocking.
