Background[edit | edit source]
Alison is the publisher of the Waterbury Bulletin and Dylan Bennett's boss. She attempts to use her skills as a reporter to find out the truth about the Executioner, but usually gets undermined by Dylan.
It's revealed that Alison published in the Bulletin false evidence that Benny Peterson abducted his own daughter Ariel, along with messages suggesting he was sexually interested in his daughter. This accusation and the events that unfolded because of it, drove Benny to take his own life.
Alison is the sixth of the Executioner's victims representing the sin of greed— where she was kidnapped, had her throat slit, then her decapitated head was placed into a fast food deep fryer.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Dylan and Alison share a platonic working relationship. But after Dylan does a better job when being interviewed by Lisa-Ann, she feels undermined and a little envious. Because of her views she takes high-level risks, often making irrational and dangerous moves in order to maintain her status. This is universal thinking for her is evident from the way she calls out the Executioner, and how she plants false evidence (leading to Benny Peterson's suicide) just to keep her job and business alive.
When Lisa comes to Waterbury, Alison wants nothing more than her attention. But after being pushed aside due to her closed off manner of speaking during the first of Lisa's interviews, she becomes desperate for her attention and asks for a private meeting with a serial killer. And when Dylan comes to confront her about how dangerous the idea is, Alison taunts him saying that he wished he thought of it first.
