He finds himself in 1985, in the body of another person with his memories gone. The man next to him refers to him as Nick, puts on gloves and a mask, and steps out of the car to commit a robbery.

Addison appears to him as a hologram and explains what’s going on. She helps him maneuver the getaway car after the robbery. Ben is obviously shaken up but maintains the facade of being Nick.

Later, Addison explains to him that if he saves Ryan, who dies after committing the robbery in the original timeline, he might be able to leap back to his body.
