The Stitchers team is on the defence when Cameron and Detective Fisher are targeted in a shooting. Kirsten's stitch leads them to Robert Barbiero, a security expert who has worked with Maggie in the past and was close to Kirsten's mom. As Kirsten follows the clues that Ed Clark left her, she finds unexpected answers to long-held questions.
Kirsten is a young woman recruited into a covert government agency to be 'stitched' into the minds of the recently deceased, using their memories to investigate murders and decipher mysteries that otherwise would have gone to the grave.
Working alongside Kirsten is Cameron, a brilliant neuroscientist whose passion for the program is evident in his work. The secret program is headed by Maggie, a skilled veteran of covert operations, and includes Linus, a socially immature bioelectrical engineer and communications technician. Kirsten's roommate, Camille, a gifted computer science grad student, is also recruited to use her skills to assist Kirsten in her new role as a 'stitcher'.
