Balthazar Getty plays Pete Dayton, a young mechanic who wakes up in a death row prison cell despite having committed no crime. Pete is released into his parents care, while being trailed by two detectives who want to know how he came to end up in Fred Madison's cell.

* TheVerse: If WordOfGod is any indication, that may just be [[DavidBowie Agent Jeffries]] singing "I'm Deranged" from [[TwinPeaks inside the Black Lodge]], and Phil the mechanic is probably Pete Martell's twin or something.
