Alex's best friend asks him to demonstrate his abilities of scanner and during his demonstration, Alex is distracted by a guest and accidentally kills his friend. Alex is considered non-guilty but decides to travel to a monastery in Thailand to learn to control his powers. Two years later, Joyce and Helena are attacked by a gang in an alley and Helena activates her ability of scanner to save them.
