As a result, both take a tumble into Los Angeles Harbor, and the priest is killed on impact. When the stunt man, who survived and is now hiding out, calls out the reporter on the inadvertent murder of an innocent man, the reporter throws HIM off a roof and kills him. Barnaby, Betty and J.R. set up a scheme where the reporter will "cover" still another phony story and implicate himself in the murder. When the reporter pulls a gun and tries to escape, J.R. tackles him. Lt. Biddle comes onto the scene and arrests the reporter for murder; the reporter then asks Biddle to let the reporter videotape...
