Nowhere Man E02 Turnabout


Nowhere Man is an American television series that aired from 1995 to 1996 starring Bruce Greenwood. Created by Lawrence Hertzog, the series aired Monday nights on UPN. Despite critical acclaim, including TV Guide's label of "The season's coolest hit," the show was cancelled after one season.

Overview


Nowhere Man is the story of photojournalist Thomas Veil, who discovers that his life has been abruptly "erased": his friends claim not to know him, his wife claims not to recognize him and is living with another man. His ATM cards and credit cards no longer work. His best friend turns up dead. His private studio is now owned by someone else. His mother, recovering from a stroke, is incapable of confirming his existence. He is ejected from his favorite restaurant as a total lunatic. In the course of a single evening, every trace of Tom's identity is gone.


Tom believes this is a conspiracy related to a photograph he took a year earlier, depicting four men being hanged in South America by what appear to be US soldiers. The only evidence Tom has of his past are the negatives of that photograph. A mysterious organization covertly pursues Tom in search of the negatives. The series revolves around Veil's attempts to get his life back by trying to find out more about the organization, while also trying to keep the negative safe.

In the final episode, "Gemini", it is revealed that Tom had been captured by the organization prior to the events of the series' first episode, and that all his memories of his life, including his marriage and even his name, had been implanted as part of a brainwashing experiment known as Project Marathon. He learns that he is actually a covert government operative codenamed "Gemini", and is part of a secret task force called "Heritage House", which was formed to investigate the organization and Project Marathon. He also learns that his copy of the "Hidden Agenda" photograph, as well as his memories of having taken it, have been altered, and that the original negative shows that the four men being lynched are actually U.S. senators being murdered by the organization.


Tom finds out the negative "Hidden Agenda" photograph is not real and the whole thing was a set-up. He questions the "number two man at the FBI" at gunpoint, but the man kills himself rather than risk revealing information under torture. The series ends with Tom watching a videotape that had been in the FBI man's possession, a film that finally explains everything; it shows "Tom" sitting in a chair under the influence being brainwashed into believing he's "Thomas Veil" and the life he's been living. The tape reveals that he works for the FBI and this is all a training exercise.

2 "Turnabout" Tobe Hooper Lawrence Hertzog September 4, 1995

After fleeing to Oregon using credit cards stolen from Dr. Bellamy, Veil is picked up by operatives of the conspiracy, who believe that he is Dr. Bellamy. He is transported to a Midwest sanitarium that is secretly operated by the conspiracy and asked to "treat" Ellen Combs (Mimi Craven), a young woman whose identity has also recently been erased by the conspiracy. The supervisor (George DelHoyo) promises "Bellamy" the Veil case file if he can get Ms. Combs to cooperate and Veil agrees to the task. Veil finds that Ellen's story is strikingly similar to his own as he tries to protect Ellen while also trying to discover the secret of his erasure.

We will be interviewing Stephen Kinzer Jan. 23 on Power Hour Nation. He is the author of Poisoner In Chief Sidney Gottlieb and The CIA Search For Mind Control. These events are quite tame to the truth of the matter torture beyond belief, murder, deep secrets of a powerful force embedded in the state apparatus. It's our world. We have to understand it before we can make positive changes.
