Storyline

Steve Austin is lead to believe through accidents and a psychologist (Margaret) that his spirit has left his body at a previous point in time when he died from the crash that lead to his bionics. Furthering this spiritual belief involves an office explosion, a seance, a spiritually possessed woman who tries to kill Steve with a fireplace poker, a car that drives itself and multiple ghost like appearances resembling Steve Austin. The plot thickens as Oscar informs Steve that two Russians are in town bent on capturing him, dead or alive, wanting the technology of his bionics. Soon Margaret vanishes in the woods when the ghost reappears and Steve runs to her rescue. All is revealed at a convergence at a cabin in the woods. Written by archiesaffair

After watching this episode, there's a reason why the series was on its last legs. The only good thing was a stunning looking Linda Dano. Col. Austin keeps seeing a ghost that looks like himself & Margaret (Linda Dano) is trying to help him. The writers threw in a side Russian Agent plot but it's 60 minutes I wish I had back.
