Renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Jason Cole (Steven Pasquale) has it all - including a dark secret. Every night at 8:25pm, Jason's body is overtaken by a dangerous alternate personality who goes by the name "Ian Price" (also Steven Pasquale). For years, Jason has been able to restrain Ian with the help of an intense pharmaceutical cocktail - that is, until today. Now Ian is free and hell-bent on seeking revenge, which could jeopardize Jason's life, career, and budding romance with Dr. Lena Solis (Alana De La Garza).

Jason, furious over Ian’s out of control spending, cuts off his cash flow… only to wake up at the wheel of a "borrowed" sports car with a trunk full of money and an angry drug dealer in his rearview mirror. Meanwhile, Jason and Lena have a falling out over Jason’s questionable conduct, which prompts Ian to make a dangerous after-hours visit to Lena. Dr. Kenneth Jordan is also growing suspicious of Jason’s odd behavior, and demands answers from Jason’s confidante, Dr. Ruben Marcado. And Olivia fears her son’s new imaginary friend is not so imaginary after all.
Jason agrees to grant Ian his wish – a rendezvous with the object of his desire, Olivia. But it comes with a catch: Ian must pose as Jason at a black-tie event honoring Dr. Vanessa Young. Ian’s antics threaten to ruin the night, pushing Lena into the arms of another man, and putting Young’s daughter Abby in mortal danger. But Jason stays true to his word, and Olivia later greets Ian in a hotel room… with a dangerous ulterior motive.
Ian falls for a woman in D.I.D. therapy, but when Jason suspects she has a life-threatening condition, he races to cure her – a cure that may mean she no longer loves Ian. When Dr. Jordan alerts Dr. Young that someone tampered with her daughter’s chart, all signs point to Jason. Lena is ready to move on from Jason with a new boyfriend, but is Jason willing to let her go?
