In the Lifetime movie Patient Killer, therapist Victoria Wrightmar continues to struggle to forgive herself after her patient Dylan killed himself. Slowly but surely, she’s moving on. She’s started a new practice and has a new boyfriend. But then a woman named Blaire walks into her office and Victoria’s life starts to spin out of control. Just like Dylan, Blair says she’s suffering from horrific dreams. When Victoria hypnotizes Blair, she’s shocked to discover the similarities of their dreams. Is it a coincidence? Fat chance — this is Lifetime, baby.
The therapist is portrayed by Victoria Pratt. She’s best known for her roles on Canadian TV shows including Heartland (Casey McMurtry) and Day Break (Andrea Battle). American fans of Xena: Warrior Princess will recognize her as the Amazon Queen Cyane who defeated Xena (Lucy Lawless) by stripping the clothes off of Xena and then dressing herself in them. Patient Killer premieres on Lifetime on August 2 at 9pm. It will air again on August 3 at 1am and August 8 at 6pm.
