The second and final hour of the Awake finale airs tonight! “Awake” says goodbye to both timelines forever this week with this week’s series finale (Thurs., May 24, 10 p.m. ET on NBC), but not before we get some answers.
Last we saw Britten, he was running from a gun-wielding Det. Ed Hawkins (Kevin Weisman), leaving a trail of blood behind him. Now he’s one of the LAPD’s most wanted.
As Britten starts to realize the truth behind the accident, a conspiracy threatens both of his realities; Britten goes after Detective Hawkins; Dr. Lee and Dr. Evans come together in a debate that forces Britten to choose a path.

In Part 1 of the two-part Awake Series Finale (Two Birds), truths about Britten’s (Jason Isaacs) life-altering accident begin to surface as menacing conspiracies jeopardize both of his worlds; and Britten becomes a target when he turns vigilante and pursues Det. Hawkins (Kevin Weisman.) Meanwhile, Vega (Wilmer Valderrama) worries about his captain’s intentions and Evans (Cherry Jones) and Lee (B.D. Wong) force Michael to choose a path.
Tune in to NBC at 10PM/9C for Part 1 of the thrilling conclusion to Awake!
Actor Kevin Weisman, best known for his role on the ABC drama ‘Alias’, will be joining the as-yet-to-be-scheduled NBC drama Awake that will chronicle police detective Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs) who will live in two alternate realities: one where his wife (Laura Allen) perishes in a car accident and one in which his son (Dylan Minnette) dies.
Weisman will have the recurring role of a mysterious character called Mr. Blonde, who will haunt Detective Britton and will play a role in his parallel worlds. According to Entertainment Weekly, Mr. Blonde will be a “man with unclear motives, but he has revealing information about the car accident that changed Britton’s life”.
Besides his work on ‘Alias’, Weisman has appeared in episodes of TV shows like ‘Moonlight’, ‘Chuck’, ‘Fringe’ and ‘Human Target’. He has also been in the box office films ‘Clerks II’, ‘Flipped’ and ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’.
Again, NBC has not scheduled a debut night for ‘Awake’ as of yet, but be on the look-out for it, hopefully, sometime this Spring.
