Appearances and Mentions

Still Waters

  • Under the direction of Coach Hamilton Kane, Pearson and the other teammates severely beat Richard Hartley during an initiation ritual in hopes that Hartley would choose to leave the team. The next day, Hartley was found murdered.
  • Detective William Murdoch investigated the murder and interviewed Pearson three times. Murdoch finally used his Pneumograph (Truthizer) to induce Pearson to tell the truth. Thus, Kane's involvement was uncovered.


  • In the credits this character is listed only as "Pearson" but his full name is given in the episode when Murdoch interrogates him.
