In the present, Mark Benford (Joseph Fiennes) is suspended from the FBI due to his actions in Hong Kong, but that doesn't stop him from making a breakthrough in the abduction of Lloyd Simcoe (Jack Davenport) and one of his closest colleagues.
After a traumatic event, Simon Campos (Dominic Monaghan) attempts to flee the United States for his family's home in Toronto, but he's not alone as Agent Janis Hawk (Christine Woods) comes along for the ride.

Episode Title: "Recon"
Written By: Elizabeth Sarnoff & Jim Galasso
Story: When James Ford (Josh Holloway) rejoins the man posing as John Locke (Terry O'Quinn) and his most recent recruits from the Temple, he's asked to travel to Hydra Island in order to do reconnaissance on the remaining survivors of Ajira Flight 316 — but what Sawyer stumbles upon there is something far more resourceful and dangerous than a group of agitated plane crash survivors.
Meanwhile, Kate (Evangeline Lilly) learns that Claire (Emilie de Ravin) is anything but grateful for the former fugitive's three year stint as Aaron's mother. In the sideways universe, Sawyer walks along a different side of the law but his sights remain firmly set on finding the man responsible for his parents' deaths. Read More...
Title: "The Imperfections of Memory"
Writer: Matthew V. Roberts
Director: Wayne Rose
Story: This week's "Caprica" is almost entirely focused on seeking out the dead. Joseph Adama, now aware that his daughter Tamara is "alive" (in a manner of speaking) in the V-World game of New Cap City, straps on a Holoband and sets out to find her. Meanwhile, Amanda Graystone begins seeing a ghost from her past-- literally. As we soon learn, this is a place she's been before. And Daniel, so intent on maintaining his company's survival, has missed the obvious truth that's been staring him in the face all these weeks: the avatar of his daughter Zoe, the one that lives inside Daniel's sole, working Cylon, has been there all this time. As this week's story closes, Daniel's eyes open to the possibility for the first time thanks to some help he receives from an unlikely source. Read More...
Episode Title: "Dr. Linus"
Written By: Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz
Story: Following the events of "Sundown," Benjamin Linus (Michael Emerson) rejoins his fellow survivors but finds that he's not welcome thanks to a discovery made by Miles (Ken Leung). Elsewhere, Jack (Matthew Fox) and Hurley (Jorge Garcia) join Richard Alpert (Nestor Carbonell) as he heads to a place on the Island that he hasn't visited in a very long time — a place where he intends to die.
In the sideways reality, Benjamin is a high school history teacher — a doctor, if you will — but his Island ambitions aren't far behind when he makes a power play for a leadership role at the school. Ben is forced to question his plans once he learns that his promotion would require the sacrifice of one of his students, none other than Alex Rousseau (Tania Raymonde). Read More...
Title: "Know Thy Enemy"
Director: Michael Nankin
Story: Two new players join the fray in the latest episode of "Caprica." The more narrowed focus seen last week remains, with "Know Thy Enemy" primarily focused on two key developing stories. One is Daniel Graystone's feud with newcomer Tomas Vergis (John Pyper-Ferguson), owner of Graystone competitor, the Vergis Corporation, who is intent on taking vengeance for the murder of two of his people. We also return to the one God worshipping STO terror group. Sister Clarice Willow hatches a plan to recover Zoe's programming data from the Graystone household while Lacy meets with the mysterious Barnabus (James Marsters) in her continuing effort to transport the ZoeCylon to Geminon, at her dead friend's request. Meanwhile, Joseph Adama continues his search for the boy who brought word of Tamara in New Cap City while Daniel's assistant Phil Omon continues his weird courtship with the Cylon. Read More...
Episode Title: "Sundown"
Written By: Paul Zbyszewski & Graham Roland
Story: Sayid (Naveen Andrews) has a bone to pick with Dogen (Hiroyuki Sanada), the temple master that wants Sayid dead. Dogen explains that Sayid, recently resurrected through mysterious means, is now evil. But there is one chance to redeem himself — by plunging a dagger straight into the heart of the entity posing as John Locke (Terry O'Quinn).
Meanwhile, Claire (Emilie de Ravin) comes to the temple to deliver a message from her "friend," one with potentially bloody consequences for Dogen and his followers. And in the sideways reality, Sayid reconnects with Nadia (Andrea Gabriel), but some old enemies stand in the way of his happiness. Read More...
Title: "There Is Another Sky"
Writer: Michael Angeli
Director: Michael Nankin
Story: With the most critical stage-setting seemingly out of the way, "Caprica" returns this week with something the previous four episodes had been lacking: focus. There's Daniel Graystone, who is in some hot water with his company after his public promise to demonetize holoband technology leads the board of directors to revolt. That is until he introduces a remarkable new direction to take the business in. Meanwhile, Joseph Adama attempts to reconnect with Willy after learning some troubling things about his son. The senior Adama eventually comes to realize that letting go will be his most difficult, yet most important, first step. And finally, we spend quite a bit of time in V-World with Tamara Adama (still Adams). It's the most we've seen of the Internet-like virtual environment since the pilot episode, and much more is learned about the way things work there. Meanwhile, sideline players in these narratives are left where they belong-- on the sidelines. No Lacy, no Sister Clarice, no Agent Duram, minimal Amanda... just the facts, man. Read More...
Episode Title: "Lighthouse"
Written By: Carlton Cuse & Damon Lindelof
Story: Hurley (Jorge Garcia) is once again visited by the late Jacob (Mark Pellegrino), who tells the unlucky lottery winner that he has to visit a lighthouse on the island — and he has to bring Jack (Matthew Fox) with him. Elsewhere on the island, Claire (Emilie de Ravin) proves to Jin (Daniel Dae Kim) just how far off the deep end she is thanks to her trusty axe and a little bit of help from her "friend."
In the sideways reality, Jack attempts to locate his father's missing body, but he resolves a different family issue instead — an issue that's quite surprising for the viewers back home. Read More...
Story: "Caprica" returns after a one-week hiatus with the highly anticipated Daniel Graystone appearance on Baxter Sarno's popular talk show. Ever since Daniel's wife Amanda raised the specter of their dead daughter's possible involvement in the MAGLEV train bombing, the family has had to contend with the public outcry against Zoe and the Graystone-created Holoband technology, which Sarno believes is a corruptive influence on the Twelve Colonies' society. Meanwhile, Joseph Adama has second thoughts about his plot to balance out his own family tragedy by having Amanda killed while GDD Agent Duram finally secures the search warrants necessary to search Zoe Graystone's home and school. There's also some further development with Lacy's promise to get to Geminon and Zoe-bot's blossoming friendship with the lonely Cylon tech. Read More...
FROM MTV.COM: Like the book on which it's based, Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island" leaves you sandbagged and gasping, although not in exactly the same way. The movie oozes gore and dementia — it has the dripping atmosphere of a gothic horror film. And the wild plot twist in Dennis Lehane's lurid 2003 novel, from which the picture has been adapted with iron fidelity, may be even more shocking in its transposition to the visual realm. Like the book, though, the movie is unleavened by humor or any other narrative respite. This isn't a problem in print, where we can pull back from the material; but it makes the picture a grueling experience, and the fact that it's too long makes it even more arduous.
The story is set in 1954. As it opens, we see U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio, in his fourth Scorsese outing) and his new partner, Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo), arriving by ferry at the remote and craggy Shutter Island, site of the Ashecliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane. The marshals have come to help find an escaped murderer, Rachel Solando, who has mysteriously disappeared from her locked cell.
