Tonight, NBC will air the third episode of it's new series, Awake
. The series follows Detective Michael Britten, played by Jason Isaacs, who was recently in a car crash where someone he loved was killed. The thing is, Britten doesn't know whether his wife, Hannah, played by Laura Allen, or his son, Rex, played by Dylan Minnette, is the one who survived. In one reality, Britten mourns the loss of his son with Hannah. Then, when he goes to sleep, he awakens in a reality where his son is alive and his wife is gone.
In tonight's episode, entitled "Guilty," Rex is kidnapped in one reality, while Hannah wants Michael to attend a speech she is giving in their son's honor, in the other.
Allen and Minnette recently talked to the digital media about the new series.
