Aaron suddenly awakens on March 5, 2014 in his apartment with his wife Priscilla. There is no blackout and everything is functioning normally. Aaron has several attacks of deja vue however as he sees people that he knows - Rachel, Dr. Horn - but can't quite place who they are. He soon realizes - with a bit of help from Charlie, who he dug out of the back of his mind - that it's all a nano-induced dream-like state to get him to repair the deteriorating software code.
