When Jason has a discussion with Ryan about the drug he made on Jason’s insistence. Ryan admits that the drug stops the “brain from causing its own decoherence”. Leighton stops the discussion between Ryan and Jason and takes Ryan away. So is there a potential threat to Ryan’s life? Maybe. Leighton will stop at nothing.

Meanwhile Jason tells Daniela about the close shave he had with a car in the first episode and how his entire life flashed before his eyes at that moment.

Maybe? anyone?

Anyway at the end. Amanda tries to help Jason escape but they are caught by Leighton and escape to a room where Amanda injects Jason with something. They wake up in a corridor full of nothingness.
