The Blue Knight

The Blue Knight

Bumper Morgan was one of the few cops around that actually walked his beat. He chose not to use a car and for that reason knew every inch of his territory. He was stubborn and determined and if needed would use physical force to get the information he needed.

The character of Bumper Morgan was actually introduced in an NBC miniseries of the same name with William Holden playing the character.

Episode Info

Final: 2x10 -- Death Echo (Dec/01/1976)

Joey, a mentally unbalanced man tries to be accused of a series of crimes committed in women and young people who looked alike physically. For a rare coincidence the real serial killer begins friendship with Joey and gives him the particular details of his crimes so that Joe's story rings true to the police. As always, Bumper manages to untangle the skein. A young man confesses to brutal murders that he did not commit.

The Blue Knight receives the signal loud and clear when a Death Echo sounds.
Bumper tells down-and-out bum Joey to stop disturbing the police when he keeps confessing that he's the one responsible for raping and murdering four women. But when Joey begins to give details which only the cops and the murderer know. Bumper realises that Joey has become the sounding-board for a maniac.
