Recap – Persons Unknown 1.08 "Saved"

If you missed last week's episode of Persons Unknown, read the recap here.

"Saved" opens with the town trashed and the winds a-blowin'.  The images are blurry, as Joe walks out into the square.  He sees Tom, and, as Tom is dead, Joe asks his old friend if he is dreaming, or worse, if they are both dead.  Tom assures Joe that he is not dead; rather, Joe "has been saved."  Joe's reaction is perfectly summed up by his reaction: a loud, long, bellowing "Noooooooooo!!!!!"  Joe wakes up strapped to a surgery table with a shaved head, and a melange of wires, tubes and sensors attached to his body.  A disembodied female voice says over a speaker that things have gotten off track with Joe.  They need to "fix" him, and unfortunately, it's going to hurt.  In the hotel, Janet tears apart Joe's room, searching for any clue that will lead to his whereabouts.
