Okay, there is no set rule, there is no proof positive, that once you come into contact with a serial killer that you will survive the encounter. There is no assurance of any of that because every individual is different and the same goes for every killer. Some serial killers will let you live if you talk to them, if you get to know them, if they get to know you; some serial killers will take pity while others won’t. This not only applies to serial killers but killers in general. Some killers are hell-bent on just killing regardless of circumstances or situation. They have made up their minds even before they encounter you and…uh…there is no way out of it. The victim is at a disadvantage because he or she does not know the mind of the killer or what he is thinking.
