What the hell?

How the hell did I drive a car

into a warehouse?

Come on.

Son of a...


[phone ringing]


[ringing continues]



- [ring]

- Wait!




Hello. Hello?





I'm glad you can

finally join us.

No, it's...

Dr. Wes Nolan?

Doctor? No, no, no.

It doesn't ring a bell.

I just...

We know you lost your memory.

Please, listen carefully.

What am I doing here and

what the hell is on my ankle?

Precautions have been taken

to ensure you do what's needed.

Who are you?!

I'm Lazarus.

Right, right.

So Bethany's just

an empty warehouse, right?

Will you listen to me,

Mrs. Lazarus?

When I say I don't know,

that's exactly what I mean.

I don't know!


I don't remember!

I-I... I don't.


I don't remember.

I just...

I'll call you back.


[line beeping]

Hello. Hello?


There you are.

Wes Nolan.

I wouldn't do that

if I were you.

Do what?

Do not try

to get out of here.


It isn't safe, Wes.

Tell me this, can you see me?

See and hear you.

Why all the bullshit

with the phone, huh?

I couldn't get connected

to the system.

Please, Wes, don't do it.

We need you in here.

I have no idea what the hell

you're talking about.


[electric buzzing]





I tried to warn you, Wes.


We can't let you go.

It's dangerous out there.

We don't want you

to get hurt.

Who's we?

You, Mary, and Martha?

That is not important

right now.

What is important is that you

understand a few ground rules.

Tell me what the hell

the ground rules are.

You can move anywhere within

the confines of this facility,

but any attempt to leave

will have consequences.


First, the ankle bracelet

you are wearing

will deliver a thousand volts

through your body.

Surely, that's enough

to keep me here, right?

Sadly not.

Some of us thought you would

require a stronger incentive.

Well, what the hell is that?

You cross the line,

and the signal

will automatically be sent

to our representatives,

keeping a close eye

on your family.


What the hell are you

talking about, family?

Look at your left hand.

Her name is Leah.

She is with your daughter.

You can't.

You can't!

It's for your own protection.

There's a third thing

you need to know.

Let me guess.

I try to take it off,

you shock my ass again, right?

Not quite.

If you make any attempt

to tamper to bracelet,

it will explode and

take off your lower half.


Of course.

Of course.

It's my least favorite half


Why don't you tell me what

the hell you want from me, huh?

What do you want?

You can start

by going upstairs.

Wes, I'm your ally,

not your enemy.




I can understand

you cannot remember,

but this is not

you against us.

We're in it together.

We are a team.

Our methods may be extreme,

but necessary.

It's the only way for you

to get back your memory.

It's the only way for us

to get what we paid for

and stop this nightmare.

I need your help, Wes.

What the hell is that?

Your new home.

And I need you to tell me

everything that you

know about it.

You seem to be forgetting

I'm suffering

from a little situation

of my own.

How the hell

I'm supposed to help you

if I can't even recognize

my own face?

We're willing

to take that chance.
