Episode Summary

The Patient
A doctor's work with a patient suffering from a paralyzing disease yields unusual results when it appears that the patient can suddenly communicate through his computer. The patient, Sherwood Nichols, displays remarkable abilities and knowledge about curing the disease. The doctor's daughter, Raina, is both intrigued and alarmed by these findings, and enlists Paul's aid in discovering the truth about what it going on. Paul and Alva determine the patient is possessed by an entity, a demon who calls himself "Mr. Friendly". In the guise of Sherwood, this creature convinces the doctor to knock Paul out and overdose the other patients. Alva shuts down the patient's life support long enough to drive the entity out. Later in the hospital, the doctor reveals that his desperation to cure the disease resulted from Raina's death of the same disease two years earlier.moreless
