As the series opens, life at OI has been moving along at a regular pace. Mac and Stephen, backed by Joseph, are regularly called in by the Boston police department when someone "jokers" after taking Destiny. They use their powers to subdue the person, as they try, but usually fail, to keep the person alive. Elliot would like to be able to test some of these jokered individuals to determine if there is a way to reverse the effects of Destiny, but they are so violent that they generally can't be captured.
