Episode Recap

Steve Austin's former employer, Oscar Goldman, approaches him and asks for help. It seems that a band of terrorists he put out of business is back. Steve declines. Oscar also tells him that the Jaime he knew before her amnesia might be back. Steve learns that his son, Michael, who is now in the Air Force is taking unnecessary risks. Michael's commanding officer thinks that Steve should talk to him. The only problem is that Steve has not really spoken to him since his mother died twenty years ago. Steve agrees and while on his way to meet his son, he runs into Jaime. They have an uneasy reunion that ends with Jaime throwing him through the window, and into his son. Although things between Steve and his son are a bit rough, Steve agrees to be at his son's first solo flight. While there, someting goes wrong and his son crashes. He is severely injured. The doctors say there's nothing that can be done. Steve asks Oscar to authorize Rudy Wells to operate on Michael and he'll accept the assignment. Oscar says no, because Rudy's already on his way to operate on his son. After the operation, Rudy tells Steve that the operation was successful and that his son's bionics are better than his. He'll be able to run faster than Steve or Jaime and his eye has a laser. Jaime, who's now a therapist, tries to help Michael deal with his changes. Steve, in the meantime, commences with the assignment and begins tracking the terrorists. He learns that the leader, Lyle Stenning, has escaped from prison. Later at the hospital, Michael and one of Jaime's patients is abducted. Rudy is also abducted. One of Jaime patients identifies one of the abductors as John Praiser, an OSI official. Steve, Jaime, Oscar, some trusted OSI agents and some Michael's Air Force friends raid the location where they are being held and everyone is caught. Finally, Steve tells his son that they need time to reconnect, while Steve also tries to reconnect with Jaime.
