Synopsis for "Confessions of a Demolished Man!"
Storming off, the human clone of Luther Manning finds that his computer half was copied over as well, so even with his healthy living form he's not free from his life as a machine. When Hellinger's radioactive Manning clone arrives and attacks Luther Manning, a mind-link Luther shares with his original Deathlok body calls him to help. With Hellinger's threat defeated, Deathlok agrees to help the CIA clean up the mess Ryker left while Manning takes a job transcribing Deathlok's memories for archival purposes. The CIA creates an exact medical replica of Deathlok that links to the original so they can monitor from their base his status on the field.

Synopsis for "What to Do After the Apocalypse! The Deathlok Transcripts"
On one mission, Deathlok is fighting former goons of Ryker's when he's assisted by a swashbuckling man wearing only a loincloth and armed only with a bow and arrow introducing himself as Godwulf, whose principle is to sabotage. Deathlok accidentally trips one of Godwulf's traps, souring his opinion of the cheerful mystery man. They part ways, but Deathlok decides to follow Godwulf to his hideout. He only catches a glimpse of Godwulf plugging wires into his chest before Godwulf notices him and makes Deathlok vanish in a flash of light. As the CIA notices the replica go inactive, they figure there's nothing they can do as they have no clue where the original could have disappeared to. With no more transcriptions to record, a frustrated Luther Manning wonders why he's even still alive. Director Devereaux bemoans that she feels guilty for her (as the government's) part in creating Deathlok and letting the blame all fall on Ryker.
