Eddie uses a genealogy website to track down his biological father. The website provides free genetic analysis to match people to distant relatives, and this, along with the bits of biological information Eddie's mother learned from a sperm bank before insemination, is enough to lead Eddie to an unsuspecting Lawrence.

Eddie goes to meet him, but he's taken hostage by Lawrence instead and discovers a genetic brain disease which will soon kill him has already made Lawrence insane. Even if Eddie escapes, there's a 50% chance he's inherited Fatal Familial Insomnia from his father...
