The 4400: The New & Improved Carl Morrissey

Carl Morrissey is a lowly supermarket employee who happens to be one of the 4400 returned abductees. He uses his new found powers - enhanced reflexes and strength - to become a vigilante and fight crime in his neighborhood. Meanwhile, Lily is thrown in jail for violating the restraining order while looking in on her daughter and ex-husband's new life. After picking up Lily from the police, Richard and Lily go back to the apartment they now share and we see the romance between the two begin to become more serious. Also, Shawn begins to learn more about his healing powers, and we are left with a cliffhanger ending of whether he will heal his cousin.
