'Awake' First Look: The Babysitter Leads a Double Life (Video)

Det. Britten's realities get even stranger on Thursday's episode of NBC's new series.

As if reality could get more twisted on NBC’s Awake, the series throws a new curveball Det. Britten’s (Jason Isaacs) way on Thursday’s episode.

Up until now, most figures in his dreams led similar lives in both realities (just altered by either his son or his wife’s death). But on the next episode, “Kate is Enough,” Britten meets his son Rex’s (Dylan Minnette) former babysitter, Kate (guest star Brianna Brown), and she leads two very different lives in the two realities.

In one reality, she’s a well-adjusted guest at an upscale party. While in the other she’s quite the opposite. So, which one is the dream?

In The Hollywood Reporter’s first look clip below, therapists Dr. Lee (BD Wong) and Dr. Evans (Cherry Jones) try to find some reason for the cop’s two different versions of Kate.

Awake airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on NBC.
