Forever 1x02 Promo "Look Before You Leap" & Forever 1x03 Promo "Fountain of Youth"
Dr. Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd) is a New York City medical examiner who studies the dead for criminal cases and to solve the mystery of his own immortality. Since his first death 200 year ago as a doctor in the African slave trade, whenever he dies Morgan returns to life a few hours later, emerging from a nearby body of water completely naked and with no memory of the intervening time. Having also stopped aging, his long life has given Morgan remarkable observation skills which impress most people he encounters, including NYPD Detective Jo Martinez (Alana De La Garza). Flashbacks depict events from Morgan's life, during which he has been married, fought in wars, dissected, and hanged for heresy; whenever his secret has been discovered, Morgan has fled to somewhere else in the world. Only Abe (Judd Hirsch), whom Morgan and his former wife Abigail found as a newborn in a German concentration camp during World War II, knows that he is immortal; in the first episode Morgan learns of an unknown murderer who has learned his secret, and claims to share the same "curse".
