[music playing]

(Cassie) They say that time is relative.

But death--


[music playing]

[Deckard groaning]

[music playing]


[music playing]


[music playing]


[music playing]


Brian. Brian. No.

No, no, no, no, no.


[tone beeping]

(Cassie grunts)


(Brian) That was quick.


(Cassie sighs)

(Brian) Decide to take

a swim on your walk?

You alright?



Oh, what did you put

in that pot we smoked?

I feel like I just dropped acid.

Baby, we didn't smoke anything.

Don't mess with me, Brian.

I'm not.

Come on, we haven't scored

in over a month, Cassie.

Are you sure you're alright?


Yeah. Yeah.

I'm sorry, it's just--

It's weird, I--

It's deja vu or something.



- I love you.

- (Cassie) I love you too.

[music playing]

Jesus. What the hell?






(Dr. Miles) Cassandra,...

...what have you done?


(Cassie) You were dead, Brian,...

...bled out on the bed,...

...and then there was

this weird vibration...

...and it went from night to day.

There has to be

some sort of explanation.

Yeah, it's called hallucination.

(Cassie) I wasn't hallucinating.

It was real, like,...

...I don't know, like I was walking

through some alternate reality...

...or experiencing

the future or something.

In an ice bath?

Yes. In an ice bath.

You do realize how ridiculous

that sounds, right?

Yes. Yes.

Yes, I know. Okay?

I know it sounds ridiculous.


I'm not making this up, Brian.

I know, baby.

But aren't you at least

happy that I'm... not dead?

I am happy that you're not dead.

I am. But what I saw really scared me.

Well, I don't plan on getting shot

anytime soon.

Although maybe

you should talk to someone.

Who, a shrink?

Probably would help.

But in this case,

I was actually talking...

...about the, uh,...

...the captain of paranormal activity.

Yeah, I know,...

...but your father is still mad at me.

Look, even he understands...

...that you had to take care

of your mom, right?


Not the last time I talked to him.

(Brian) I'm just saying.

I mean, it couldn't hurt...

...to consult the resident

expert on weird.

Quantum mechanics isn't weird.

- Oh, yeah it is, it's weird.

- (Cassie) It's not weird.

Oh, it's super weird.

Creepy weird.

Ice bath weird.

- You're weird.

- (Brian) I know, but--

Quantum physics is weirder.

Your father is a genius, Brian.

Cut him some slack.

Couldn't I say the same about your dad?

"The smartest jerk

you know."

Isn't that what you

always say about him?

- Yeah. Well, mine left.

- And mine didn't.

But at least we connected

over the fact...

...that we both dislike each other.

And there happens to be one person...

...who he actually likes...

...and speaks highly of,...

...and that thesis you wrote,...

...and the genius of it.

Yeah, well,...

...sometimes life gets in the way.

Where am I?

(Dr. Miles) A safe place.

I know this is difficult.

But I want to help you.


Electroshock helps?

(Dr. Miles) So you remember

the procedure?

What else?

What do you remember about the hotel?

Come on, try harder.

I need a shower.

I'm gonna need more from you first.

Brian Chance.

You do remember Brian, hmm?

Who the hell are you?

Why am I here?

There was an accident.

He had a gun.


(Cassie grunts)

(Dr. Miles) Oh, it's all..

it's all right, Cassie.

Cassie, calm down, you're safe now.

- It's all right.

- No.

(Dr. Miles) What did you see?

What did you remember?

- No.

- What did you see there?

No, no, no, no, no, no.

Shh, calm down, calm down.

No. No.

Stay away from me.

You stay away.

- Listen, Cassie, look at me.

- (Cassie) Where is Brian?

- Where is Brian?

- (Dr. Miles) Listen, look at me.

- I'm not gonna hurt you.

- (Cassie) Get away from me.

- I'm not gonna hurt you.

- No, you get away from me.

- Get away from me.

- (Dr. Miles) Look at me.

- (Cassie) Where's Brian?

- (Dr. Miles) It's all right.

- It's all right.

- (Cassie) Where is Brian?

Come on, Cassie, I'm not gonna hurt you.

- No.

- It's all right, Cassie.

- No. No.

- Hey, what are you--

What are you doing?


I was just getting somewhere with her.

Deckard wants to see you.

Yeah, of course he does.

[music playing]

[scanner beeping]

[man] Thief of time.

What did you say?

[music playing]


Brian, did you see that?




Brian, stop messing around.

[music playing]


[music playing]

[phone rings]

[tone beeps]


Brian, where are you?

Please call me back.

[phone rings]

(Josh) Hey, Cass.


(Josh) Long time, how are you?

- Hey.

- (Josh) What's going on?


Something's really weird.

Can you meet me at RJ's?

[indistinct chatter]

- (Delaney) Sorry.

- (Denise) Oh, excuse me, mister.


Black, two sugars.

You remembered.

Yeah, that I remember.


You okay?

You look a little--

I woke up in an ice bath, Josh.

I have no idea how I got there.

And then Brian was dead,...

...and the sun changed in the sky.

Keep your voice down.

(Cassie) And--

I found this.

The weirdness factor is off the scale.

Look, therapeutic hypothermia

is used sometimes...

...with cardiac arrest patients.

You have a heart attack?

I'm a little young for that,

don't you think?

It happens.

Brian's got that

mitral valve issue, right?
