Taking a year off teetering on the edge with grief, she's back to resume her training. Hannah remains fragile, so when she starts glimpsing strange events in the hospital and unsettling behavior from her ex-boyfriend and star surgeon Nick played by Stephen Campbell Moore, she's unsure what to believe.
