After a teenage girl is pronounced brain dead, her mother takes her off life support, but when doctors operate quickly to remove her organs, the deceased girl shockingly awakens screaming an alphanumeric code. Equally as perplexing as her resurrection is that she is now somehow able to speak Russian and possesses classified information only a high-ranking soldier would know. While the girl's mind-bending condition intensifies, Walter dusts off some old lab videos and hypothesizes the unthinkable, sending Olivia and Peter to investigate the bewildering case. Written by

This episode was shot for the first season, but only broadcast as a "special" episode after the winter break on a different day, with the press release stating that this is either an episode from the first season or from an "alternative universe" (refering to the overall story arc of the second season). The presence of Kirk Acevedo, whose character died earlier in season 2 (but was a regular in season 1), causes a major continuity problem in this episode. Careful observation tells you this is season 1 and the good Charlie. Astrid had a distinct hair style in both seasons and in this episode it was the season 1 cut before Charlie died or was replaced.

Before organs are removed from the donor, brain death must be verified (usually by two independent doctors with no prior connection to the patient), not the ventilator being switched off. The ventilation via endotracheal tube must continue until the aorta is cross-clamped, and only then be switched off. The first organ to be recovered is always the heart due its high oxygen demand, the last one the liver, not like it was shown here. See more
Through this holy anointing, may the Lord, in his love and mercy, help you with the grace of the Holy Spirt. May the Lord who frees you from sin save you, and in his goodness raise you up.
