"Noosphere Rising" is the seventh episode in the series' first season, and aired on April 26, 2012.


Martin attempts to find Teller's mysterious workshop and winds up aiding another professor, Logan, to win big at poker. Meanwhile, a young Italian man creates a viral video to track down the love of his life, whom he only met in passing, and a city slicker who plans to sell off his dead father's ranch, winds up learning a lesson from a horse that makes him appreciate the rural life his father chose. Then, Martin's sister-in-law, Abigail Kelsey, visits Clea and Jake at the board-and-care facility, much to Martin's dismay.
