Episode Synopsis: Jason (Steven Pasquale), furious over Ian’s (also Steven Pasquale) 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 (Alana de la Garza) have a falling out over Jason’s questionable conduct, which prompts Ian to make a dangerous after-hours visit to Lena. Dr. Kenneth Jordan (Michael Esper) is also growing suspicious of Jason’s odd behavior, and demands answers from Jason’s confidante, Dr. Ruben Marcado (Lin-Manuel Miranda). And Olivia (Ruta Gedmintas) fears her son’s new imaginary friend is not so imaginary after all.
Show Summary: Dr. Jason Cole (Steven Pasquale, “Rescue Me”) is a highly respected neurosurgeon who has it all – a lucrative career, confident charm, the gift of compassion. But he also has a deep, dark secret. One morning when he wakes up disoriented in a wrecked hotel room amidst several near-naked women he’s never seen before, he knows one thing: it’s happening again. Every night at the same hour, something inside Jason changes, leaving him almost unrecognizable – seductive, devious, borderline sociopathic. This new man is his dangerous alternate personality who goes by the name of ‘Ian Price.’ For years he’s battled Ian, keeping him in check with a powerful experimental sedative. But now his – their – body has developed a resistance to the serum, setting Ian free once again. And to make matters worse, after being suppressed for so long, Ian is hell-bent on taking revenge on his oppressor. With everyone Jason cares about at risk – patients, friends, coworkers and even the woman he loves – he’s got to stop Ian once and for all. Will they find some common ground, or will they bring each other down? Hell hath no fury like an alter ego scorned.
