Storyline

After Ben Kohler is shot in the head during a mugging, Dr. Jennifer Martinez gets permission to implant an experimental chip in his brain meant to regulate his breathing and heartbeat. The chip has been tested on monkeys with some success but previous human tests have been less successful. Kohler awakens quickly and is told he is the first to receive the new chip. Soon however, he begins to see things, as though he can see through another man's eyes. That man, Wayne Haas, was a recipient of the earlier model of implant. He's also a serial killer. Haas however can also see through Kohler's eyes. When he reports what he saw to the police, they suspect that Kohler is the killer. Written by garykmcd

A man who has just been turned down for a construction job is shot in the head by a mugger. He is brought to the hospital in critical condition. Since he will probably die anyway, a young woman doctor/researcher decides to put an experimental implant in his brain. After he wakes up, he is furious, but he soon adapts to the thing. The down side is that he begins to have violent hallucinations. He is at the scene of brutal rape/murders and seems to have some connection with the rapist. He can't understand what is going on but insists that the operation is responsible for these. Over time, he gets closer and closer to the events. He even sees the face of the man who is killing and raping. Unfortunately, he has done time for manslaughter during the rescue of a woman who was, herself, being assaulted. The police won't believe his story. It is far fetched enough and add to it his first person account of the attacks. This is a well done episode because it science but with the courageous acts of the man in question.
