Several characters face having to deal with their visions. Dr. Olivia Benford tries to arrange for Dylan Simcoe to be transferred to another service thereby hoping to limit her contact with the boy's father, Lloyd. It appears that Lloyd's vision isn't quite as complete as Olivia's was. Nicole Kirby returns and reluctantly reveals her flash forward. Agents Benford and Noh meanwhile try to convince Agent in Charge Stanford Wedeck to let them travel to East Africa to see what they can learn about what may have happened there 10 years previously.

Ned Ned: I was rocking leather pants - I've never rocked leather pants! It's always been one of my top three fears, along with clowns and escalators, but there I was - rockin' out at this bar that I've always wanted to go to but I've never gone to, because I thought I'd be too nervous, that I'd be, well, too nervous - but it wasn't that way. I was happy; I was at peace. Oh - and I was black!
