      Episode 1

      A comet is due to pass by Earth, but its trajectory changes to a collision course, causing widespread panic. When the comet appears to slow down — as if it's coming in for a landing — 4,400 people are deposited in an explosion over Highland Beach.

      The returnees — "the 4400" — have been missing from months to years. None have any memory of where they've been, none have aged, and a small number are beginning to manifest paranormal abilities. Tom Baldwin and Diana Skouris, two Homeland Security agents, are appointed to find out what happened to the 4400.

He uses his new found powers - enhanced reflexes and strength - to become a vigilante and fight crime in his neighbourhood. Lily is thrown in jail for violating the restraining order while looking in on her daughter and ex-husband's new life. Richard and Lily's romance begins to blossom.moreless
