S1 E8: Shot in the head by an armed robber 35 year old Ben Kohler's (Sam Robards) only chance of survival according to Dr. Jennifer Martinez (Elizabeth Pena) is an experimental cerebral chip (CC12). The earlier generations of this chip have killed 25% of the humans it was tested on but Martinez convinces the medical chief to authorize the surgery in order to save Ben's life. As the surgery is proceeding in another part of town a man with a long crescent shaped scar on his head is coming out of the shower and suddenly throws his hands to his head and collapses in pain. Ben is released from the hospital one month later after a complete recovery. Back in his own small apartment Ben has a realistic and horrifying vision. Peering out of someone else's eyes he is chasing a woman through the woods and sees a hand reach out to attack her. Later Ben has a second vision where he sees the woman again but this time she is dead. Along with the visions Ben hears a strange haunting voice calling out to him. Ben phones police detective Wilson who confirms that there has been a real homicide such as Ben described but police hadn't yet given the story to the press. Wilson suspects Ben is the killer and traces the call to Ben's apartment. Afraid of the police Ben turns to Jennifer for help. He witnesses another woman's murder and again the killer speaks to Ben taunting him. Ben and Jennifer realize the chip receives and broadcasts signals so the killer must be one of Jennifer's former patients. With a little detective work Ben and Jennifer think the killer must be Howard Haas (Stephen Shellen) an earlier recipient of the chip. They race to Haas' house where they discover the body of a woman in a bathtub. Suddenly Haas appears knocks Ben out cold and takes Jennifer hostage. The police arrive at the scene and take Ben into custody. His story sounds preposterous but the records confirm that Ben was in the hospital at the time of the murders. Another vision leads Ben to the sleazy motel where Haas is holding Jennifer at knife point. Ben takes some tranquilizers to calm his adrenaline so that Haas can't read signals emitted from Ben's chip. With the CC12 monitor device in hand Ben comes to Jennifer's rescue. Pressing down the button on the monitor Ben sacrifices himself as he and Haas are thrown back and they both go into cardiac arrest.
