Tonight on The Listener, Toby (Craig Olejnik) is on duty when he comes across and saves troubled teenager Daniel from a gang beating.  The boy refuses treatment at the hospital and actually disappears.  When Toby sets off to look for him, he stumbles upon a hidden group of runaways, even the startling murder of a young girl named Lisa Greyson.

Surprisingly, this sort of thing happens to be very close to his heart, as he needs to draw from his own devastating personal secrets to save these young people.  Rushing for time, Toby and Detective Marks (Lisa Marcos) finds out what really happened, which shocks Lisa's mother.


On the last episode of the Canadian supernatural import, things were looking well for Toby until they took a tragic turn. He hooked up with a beautiful pathologist at a night club. When Mina (that's her) turned up dead, Toby was singled out as a primary suspect.  As such, he does some "listening" to find the real murderer. Just when he thought he had solved the mystery and found the culprit, he uncovered a conspiracy within the coroner's office.

Originally by CTV, The Listener is a supernatural drama centered on 25-year-old Toby, who has the ability to listen to people's thoughts, a talent which he finds useful in his line of work. He chooses to not make this ability known to his family and has so far only shared it with his old counselor and confidante Ray Mercer, played by Colm Feore.  The other people in his life have no idea, including partner Oz Bey (Enis Esmer), detective Marks, and on-and-off girlfriend and ER doctor Olivia (Mylene Dinh-Robic.

Catch tonight's episode of The Listener 9pm on NBC.
