Previously on The Survivor ...

Ambulance driver: We’ve got someone here! Theres a person here!

Radio: Police say the small private plane crashed at 10 p.m. There were three people on the plane. Two people are dead. One person is in the hospital.

Nurse Bryson: My name is Jenny Bryson. I’m your nurse ... You’re very lucky. You were in an aeroplane crash. And here you are. You’re alive!


Two months before the plane crash ...

Agent Sanders: Welcome to the FBI Bank Robbery Department. I’m Agent Sanders. Are you ready? Yes? Good. Come with me, please.

Agent Kowalski: Yes, thanks. This is not my first day.

Agent Sanders: I know. Your name is Nick Kowalski. You were in another department of the FBI for five years. You worked in an office. But this is different. We don’t work in an office in this department. We work on the street.

Agent Kowalski: Yes, Agent Sanders. I’m happy to be here. Who am I working with?

Agent Sanders: You’re working with me. I’m your boss for now. Are you OK with that?

Agent Kowalski: Yes. Yes. Of course, I just didn’t think …

Agent Sanders: What?

Agent Kowalski: Nothing. So, what’s our job?

Agent Sanders: Good question. What is the name of this department, Kowalski?

Agent Kowalski: The Bank Robbery Department.

Agent Sanders: So, we are going to catch some bank robbers.


Nurse Bryson: Good morning, Jane! And how are you this morning? ... You have a visitor, Jane. Agent Kowalski from the FBI. He said he had to see you. Is that OK? I said you were very tired ... Now, Agent Kowalski, she’s asleep, OK? She can’t talk.

Agent Kowalski: Thank you very much, ma’am. I’m sorry. But I have to see her. Only for five minutes.

Nurse Bryson: Well. Be nice to Jane.

Agent Kowalski: Jane?

Nurse Bryson: Yes, Jane Doe. It’s the name we gave her ... We don’t know her real name.

Agent Kowalski: How is she?

Nurse Bryson: Ask the doctors. I think she’s very lucky to be alive. She’s in a coma, but she is getting better.

Agent Kowalski: Can she hear us?

Nurse Bryson: We don’t know. Some people in a coma can hear everything. Other people can’t hear anything. We don’t know.

Agent Kowalski: Where are her things? Did she have a bag?

Nurse Bryson: She only had her clothes. No identification or purse. No phone. No bag.

Agent Kowalski: Hmm.

Nurse Bryson: So ... was she on the plane?

Agent Kowalski: We found her very near the plane, yes.

Nurse Bryson: But was she a passenger? The doctor told me there were only two people on the plane. They were both men. They are both dead.

Agent Kowalski: I can’t say. Well, that’s enough. Thank you, Nurse ...

Nurse Bryson: Bryson. Nurse Bryson.

Agent Kowalski: Well, Nurse Bryson, that’s all for today. If she wakes up, can you call me?

Nurse Bryson: Of course.

Agent Kowalski: Oh. One more thing. Can you give my colleague some information? Your name, your phone number, you know ...

Nurse Bryson: OK ...

Agent Kowalski: Go outside for a moment and see my colleague. His name’s Scott. He’s outside.

Nurse Bryson: I can’t leave Jane here alone ...

Agent Kowalski: She won’t be alone. I’ll be here, I need to write some notes.

Nurse Bryson: OK, then ... 

Agent Kowalski: ‘Jane Doe’, huh? You can hear me, can’t you? ... I know your real name, Agent Sanders ... I’ll see you around, ‘Jane’. Wake up soon.

Yes, sure. I guess in the next episode we will hear about what happened at that unlucky night. Maybe Jane will wake up this time and inform us about all details.

I really like this episode because it has a lot of mystery and I think in the next episode Jane will wake up and forget her whole life and she is going to lose her memory. :(

I think it will be revealed that the nurse is behind all this. She's too anoying to be innocent.
