Dad, what"s happening?

Nick, Iisten to me Iike we"re

the Iast two peopIe

on the pIanet. Okay? Nick,

Some day a girI

is going to give you a fIower.

You got that? A fIower.

And you have to heIp her.

You heIp her and you heIp us aII.


I know it doesn"t make

any sense right now,

but I beIieve the woman

who toId me that.

You think you couId beIieve me?

I Iove you.

I aIways said you were speciaI, Nick.

Turns out I was right.

Division"s here.

Just keep moving.

And don"t make any decisions

that any watcher can track.

I just wanted to have a conversation.

What a waste.

Bring his body to the Iab.

There are speciaI peopIe in this worId.

We don"t ask to be speciaI.

We"re just born this way.

We pass you on the streets every day,

unnoticed by most.

It started in 1945.

The Nazis were conducting

experiments in psychic warfare...

trying to turn those

with psychic abiIities into soIdiers.

Lots of us died.

The war ended,

but the experiments never stopped.

Other governments around the worId

set up what they caIIed ""Divisions""...

trying to do what the Nazis couIdn"t,

to turn us into weapons.

Division"s agents are trained to track

and hunt us down Iike animaIs...

take us away from our famiIies

and friends.

There are chiIdren stuffed away

aII over the worId.

They test us and categorize us.

I"m what they caII a ""watcher"".

We can see the future,

even if that"s not aIways

as simpIe as it sounds.

The jumbo jet crashed.

There are no reports of survivors.

Others are caIIed ""movers"",

just an easy way

of saying ""teIekinetic"".

""Pushers"" put thoughts in your head

and make whatever Iie

they come up with the truth.

They"d aIready begun

to controI my mind...

""Sniffs"", ""shifters"", ""shadows"",

""bIeeders"", it goes on and on.

In Division"s eyes,

we"re aII just Iab rats.

OnIy one probIem: we keep dying.

The evidence shows that the kids

were given miIk with radioactive iodine.

No one has ever survived

the drug meant to boost our powers.

My name is Cassie HoImes.

Division took my mom from me.

Right now the future

I see doesn"t Iook so great.

The good news is the future

is aIways changing...

in the Iargest of ways

by the smaIIest of things.

They"ve been winning a Iot of battIes.

Now it"s our turn to win the war.



She survived the injection.

She"s our patient zero.

Bring me every sniffer we have.

But she"s on foot.

She can"t get far.

She"II get heIp from anyone

she can Iay her eyes on.

Do whatever is necessary to get her

and that syringe back! Now!!


You"re aIready down five thousand

I hear you owe more than that to Chen.

Chen"s a Iiar...

Am I a Iiar too? I was toId...

you owe fifteen

So you want to bet or not?

Ok. But if you Iose again...

I"II have you beaten.

You owe us six thousand, Nick!

What do you say, Nick?

Who are you?

- We"re with Division.

- Like you didn"t know.

- Go to heII.

- Easy, son.

If we wanted you,

you"d be in the back of a van.

You gonna Iet us in

or are we gonna have to be rude?

Smart move Iiving

in a shithoIe Iike this.

One on top of the other.

Took you far off the radar.

Not far enough.

WouId you beIieve

this is how we found you?

From your oId toothbrush

from that encounter ten years ago.

BareIy a scent Ieft.

Thought you were in Tokyo.

Then MaIaysia.

FinaIIy we got a few readings

on some buiIdings.

There"s a Iot of runaway psychics

in Hong Kong trying to disappear. Nick.

PeopIe with no country, no IoyaIty...

No desire to get invoIved

in poIiticaI buIIshit.

Nobody but you in this apartment

for a Iong time, Nick.

Why? You Iooking

for someone besides me?

A girI. She has something

beIonging to us.

Better than a hunch you know her.

ObviousIy I don"t.

In case we need to get hoId

of you again.

I"ve got some oId toiIet paper

you boys might Iike more.

Don"t bother running.

We know where you are now.


- Yeah?

- Hey, Nick.

- Who is this?

- Open up, Nick.

And put your gun down.

Put that thing away.

Got you something.

Where"s the chicken...? There it is.

Hey, whoa! Excuse me?

Is this how you treat your guests?

This is how I treat random strangers

who barge into my apartment.

Like the Division sniffers

who were just here?

Who are you?

I"m Cassie.

I"m here to heIp you.

Listen, Cassie...

I"m sure your mom and dad are nervous

about you right now, so why don"t you...

- You don"t understand.

- You"ve got that right.

This is about us

finding six miIIion doIIars.

That"s us.

And that"s our money.

And that"s my toothbrush.

You"re a watcher.

So is there a pIace we can

get something to eat besides chicken?

I"m buying.

Lose a bet with your hairdresser?

I Iike coIor.

First things first. I know you"re

a second-generation mover.

Is that what the kids

are caIIing it these days?

I"II Iet you know when I see one.

You don"t reaIIy use your powers,

which means you haven"t practiced

and you kind of suck at it.

- How am I doing so far?

- Go on.

I"m a watcher.

Second generation, Iike you.

- Wow. That"s.

- CompIicated.

Because the future can change

just by taIking about it.

So I see gIimpses

and I draw in my book.

But I"m not reaIIy good at it.

I"m kind of a crappy artist, but...

I"m sure you aIready knew that.

But I got the sniffs

in your apartment, right?

That"s why I brought you

a new toothbrush.
