Out of nowhere, a woman carrying a bad-ass stun-rod goes after him …

… yes, I did say out of nowhere. That’s how disjointed the episode is.

Annnnnyway, a fight ensues …

… and while falling, gets struck by lightning:

Um, yeah.

He’s found on a dock, taken to a hospital, is dead for about a minute (which lasts only a few seconds of screen time!), and winds up with …

I won’t be watching more.

Same-day update: I wound up finding the theme visuals on Vimeo. The series is nowhere as good as the titles:
