Agent Dunham, Dr. Bishop and Peter investigate a number of deaths resulting from an elevator free falling in an office tower. The conditions they find suggest that a high intensity power source may have overridden the electrical system in the elevator. Dr. Bishop recalls experiments in the past that tried to alter a human's energy profile and concludes that the accident was caused by an individual. It is also likely that it was a genuine accident, rather that an overt act. Agent Dunham's prime suspect is a Doctor Jacob Fischer who is wanted by the FBI and is known to have experimented in this area in the past. Meanwhile, Olivia continues to see her dead partner John Scott and is concerned that she may be having a breakdown of some sort.
Did You Know?

During the power outage, when the elevator goes down Olivia looks up at the elevator listing which shows there to be 10 floors in the building. The federal building where this scene takes place obviously has more than 10 floors.
However, not all elevators traverse all floors in a building. It is possible this fictional building has staggered elevators and express elevators. See more
