Britten insists on maintaining his double life in order to keep both of his wife and son alive on "Awake", but one of his loved ones will be put in danger in the second episode. Rex is held hostage by a guy, who tells Britten to do what he says. Taking a benefit from the connection between the two worlds he lives in, Britten tries to get a clue as to where his son is taken by meeting a man in prison in another world.
Meanwhile, Britten finds that the two cases he handles in different realities are both linked to a "small guy." When his sudden interest in the height of the suspects he's investigating draws concern from his captain (guest star Laura Innes), she will be monitoring him.
Also in the upcoming outing, the events surrounding the fateful accident that changed Britten's life come into question and throughout, his two therapists, Dr. Lee and Dr. Evans, continue to present their dueling theories on Britton's condition.
"The Little Guy" will air Thursday, March 8 at 10/9c on NBC.
