Johnny goes to the funeral of Bruce's father in Indiana and after touching both Bruce and of his dead father at the same time, somehow gives Bruce a long vision of an alternate reality of what Bruce's life would have been like if he had never met Johnny; Bruce is an church elder at his church with his father Rev. David Lewis, who's alive and in conflict with his son over his choices in life. This leads Bruce to try to find Johnny, who has shut himself off from everyone he knows, and uncover a plot by Johnny to assassinate Greg Stilson before he gets elected president and brings on a nuclear holocaust.
