Synopsis:Val reads Nick's horoscope in the morning paper, which says "Someone in your past will return today." Nick pays a visit on Pickman, who's helping him locate someone, and he doesn't want SHIELD involved. The ESP Division picks up "possible danger", sending Nick to a seemingly-deserted warehouse-- and straight into a trap set by Scorpio! Nick's Farrari is destroyed, and Nick is captured. While unconscious, Scorpio creates a face-mask to allow him to impersonate Nick, then goes in disguise to view the test of the latest model of LMD. But as it begins, no one else realizes the robot has been replaced with Nick, drugged so he can't speak! Miraculously, Fury manages to dodge one death trap after another, then faces his would-be killer. Val, trying to save Nick's life, shoots at the "LMD"-- but hits Pickman instead, who found his way in via a secret passage. Nick pursues the escaping imposter, who tears off his mask, revealing his true identity to Nick-- just before being caught in a hail of gunfire from a group of SHIELD agents! After, Nick stands alone on a dock, looking out over the water, wondering if the man who tried so very hard to murder him is still alive.
