Inexplicably, three people are struck in the head after a meteor explodes. The devices in their brains resemble spearheads. When removed, a tentacle come out and waves around, seemingly testing the environment. Two forensic pathologists are at the scene the first time this happens. The "dead" patient leaps to his feet and runs out the door, leaving them stunned. One issue that is brought up is the one pathologist has a wife on life support in a hospital. She was victimized by a careless driver and there is no hope. Still, he brings her flowers every day and talks to her. The man they treated goes to his fiancée and tells her to trust him. She is so confused because she has been told he is dead. Later, she sees him get in a car with a strange woman. The trio are up to something; it appears they have some plot to take over the world. They find a way to get huge amounts of money and resources to build a machine of some kind. They test it on a cat and the cat begins to fade out and disappears in a fiery flash. There next step is to round up a group of people who have death sentences from cancer, brain trauma, and so on. There is good suspense in this; we want to know. I found the conclusion unsatisfying. It felt incomplete. Judge for yourself.
