Headscratchers / Painkiller Jane

Go To

In the TV Series episode "Catch Me If You Can", why does the Neuro purchase a rifle?
  • For those who don't know or simply don't recall, this episode concerns a Neuro with the ability to see the future. He contacts Jane and tells her he had a vision that the team will come to arrest him and that in the ensuing violence, three team members get shot and killed, presumably by him. His desperation to avert this catastrophe raises the question of why he would choose to acquire a rifle. I mean, this is a pretty obvious chain of reasoning: No gun means no shooting.
