Michael learns more about the truth of the accident. He tries to get evidence that Ed Hawkins tried to kill him, and finds out that Hawkins' commanding officer Carl Kessel (Mark Harelik) was also in on this setup. Bird helps Britten in both realities, despite still questioning Britten's sanity. He is killed by Ed Hawkins in the "red reality". Meanwhile, when Detective Vega is questioned about his partner, he begins to doubt Captain Harper's intentions, and Hannah and Rex are worried about Britten's behavior.
