A man, Adam Gordon, goes to the morgue and confirms that a dead girl is his sister, Maggie. The attendant takes him to do the paperwork. As they walk away, the lights flicker and Adam hears Maggie calling to him. The attendant doesn't hear anything but he runs to his sister as she gestures to him. The attendants restrain him and Adam climbs up the wall and goes around them. When he drops to the floor, they grab him and drag him away... and Adam sees that Maggie is dead and has been all along...

Episode Notes
Noah Reid (Adam Gordon) played the main character on Three Inches, the projected pilot for SyFy that featured a slacker with a superpower teaming up with other normal people with superpowers. SyFy chose Alphas over Three Inches since they didn't want two similar shows on their network at the same time.

Episode Quotes
Gary: We're not sick. We're here on official business. So you have to respect the badge.
Rachel: They get it. You can put the badge away now.

Cameron: Just our luck--it's the closed wing of the hospital.
Bill: Yeah, just like a horror movie.
Cameron: I'd be careful if I were you. Every single horror movie I've seen...
Bill: Yeah, the white chick is tripping and screaming.
Cameron: No, no, try it again.
Bill: Yeah, the black guy's gonna die first. I don't think so.
