How well do you know your friends? Would you bet your life on it? It's not what we share with our friends, but what we keep hidden that defines what kind of people we are. After spending every minute of the last two years living, working, and partying together, Jay, Tyler and Will are departing on a summer journey. But being together ends today... a simple prank to rollerblade through one of New York City's most famous museums has made Jay and Tyler prime suspects in the terrorist bombing that destroyed it seconds later. The guys hope Will can help clear up this misunderstanding, but he's been missing since the explosion and they think he might be dead. Jay wants to talk to the police about finding Will, but quickly realizes they can't even prove Will exists – in every photo for the last two years, Will managed to block his face. He was their only alibi. The F.B.I. confirms a man matching Will's description died in the explosion, but also learns the explosion was triggered by a call from Jay's cell phone. It's a highly suspicious coincidence that may prove Will, the glue in their friendship, may have meticulously planned this betrayal for over two years. Perfectly framed and on the run, the friends must rely on each other to get away from the F.B.I., and try to get to the bottom of a conspiracy that has destroyed their future. But what can they do when they're merely pawns in a game of global intrigue? Flashing back to the prior two years to illustrate the formation of this friendship and Will's insidious behavior, this action-packed drama taps into our paranoia with pure adrenaline-fueled entertainment.

: It’s been three days and twenty-one hours since the Drexler bombing, and Tyler is having a horrible nightmare. As he tosses fitfully in the passenger seat of his car, images race through his mind: the explosions of the Drexler and the Maya, the race through the woods to escape Ellington, the library in New Haven where they were nearly captured. The sounds of gunfire and their pursuers serve as a frightening commentary to the images that aren’t just a nightmare—they’re all things that have happened since Tyler’s life has been turned upside down. He is startled out of his sleep by a pair of homeless people who want to earn some money, but the frustration and rage are so evident in Tyler’s demands for them to leave that they don’t ask any questions... read more.1x4: The Out recap

: Nine hours after the bombing, Agents Marlow and Borjes are giving an update on the status of the Drexler case: Burchell and Fog have escaped federal custody via an accomplice and are nowhere to be found. The “accomplice” used a .45-caliber weapon to kill the agent in the van, and C4 to blow it beyond recognition. They also report that Tyler Fog made two phone calls to his father, and may be headed to one of his houses---the question is which one, as there is a farmhouse in Massachusetts, a penthouse in Manhattan and the main house in the Hamptons to consider. Chambers demands that they pinpoint the location so as to wrap this up as soon as possible... read more.
