The 4400 are back; the world has changed. The next chapter takes place 15 years after the events of season four with our heroes in a very different Seattle. Struggling to readjust to life in the present, some have taken the opportunity to pursue the American Dream, others have found solace in the world of technology. Meanwhile, a new generation has emerged – the children born with the 4400s powers which were previously thought to be merely an urban myth.
-The season opener introduces us to one such power child as he is just coming into his own and beginning to understand the magnitude of the abilities that will be his to command.
-In the present, a group of the 4400 are struggling with memories from the future – and trying not to change them. One such memory is the first meeting between Tom Baldwin and Jordan Collier, where Collier lays out for an incredulous Baldwin his plan to bring down the Company.
The show follows the lives of the people who were abducted from Earth in the near future. In this episode, a new generation has emerged – children born with the powers that were once thought to be merely urban legends. And the future of the 4400 may depend on them.
