  • John takes a plane flight to London and finds himself in a life or death situation where his abilities help save the day.

    John gets on a plane bound for London. His claustrophobia grips him almost immediately. He takes a seat next to Dr. Rachel Pembroke, a beautiful British neurologist. John helps her with her laptop and she helps him with a reflexology technique that eases his distress. It's kind of a neat arrangement: a genius with amnesia getting acquainted with a neurologist. Later on, a priest is murdered in a most uncommon manner. John and Rachel team up with a Scotland Yard detective to investigate the murder and find the killer. Naturally John uses his amazing intellect while investigating. He also gets some help from a Czech weight-lifting team. During the investigation, John helps to avert a crisis on the plane and forms a romantic relationship with Rachel. This is a very good episode with action, tenderness and suspense. Again, this episode has some neat trivia for people wanting to know a little more. It's amazing that many of the things that John requires for his homemade tools are on the plane.
