The Games People Play

Eureka Carter whacks his head while investigating a noisy researcher. Shortly after that, he gets into an argument with Zoe, who’s still mad that Carter kept his arrangement with Abby a secret, and now seems mad that he won’t fight to keep her. Shortly afterward, he sees a bright light at the sheriff’s office, and Jo seems to disappear. Even more strangely, no one in town remembers her. As Carter tries to figure out what happened, more and more people disappear, and those who are left believe Carter is going crazy. As Carter races to get Zoe to safety, he discovers that she doesn’t remember their argument from that morning. Carter realizes that he’s in a virtual reality created by a therapeutic device Zoe was using to visualize her conflicts. Carter had tried it on, but his head trauma interfered with the device. And as he tries to figure out to leave his fabricated reality, the citizens of Eureka keep a vigil in the real world, waiting for him to wake up.
