Character History

Six Months Ago

Hal tracks down his daughter Niki at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. Afterwards, he expresses his desire to re-enter Niki and Micah's lives.

Later, Hal comes to visit Niki and D.L. at their house. Hal gives Micah a new laptop as a gift. Niki and D.L. discuss finances, specifically how Micah could use a private education. When Hal brings up his poor fathering and irresponsible past, Niki says she does not remember. Hal, referencing Alcoholics Anonymous, tells Niki, "You're only as weak as your secrets."

Afterwards, Hal goes into Micah's room. There he finds that Micah has taken the case off of the laptop and is poking at its internals. Hal yells at Micah for "breaking" it, telling him it cost $2,000. When D.L. and Niki confront him about the yelling, he hands a blank check to Niki, saying, "I have no business being here ... I owe you more than an apology can ever do". He then storms out of the house.

Later, at his hotel room, Hal lets Niki into his room, but she tells him she's Jessica, not Niki. Jessica throws Hal against the dresser, bloodying his nose and accusing him of accidentally killing Niki's real-life sister Jessica. Jessica tells Hal that for all the years that Hal has abused her, Niki's personality was never aware; Jessica's personality took all of the hits, and bottled all of the rage. She throws him down on the bed, and shoves his gift check into his mouth. Before leaving, Jessica threateningly tells Hal, "You're going to go away and never come back."


D.L. tells Niki that she didn't turn into Jessica, she turned into her old man, and that he'll die before she does to Micah what Hal did to her.

One of Us, One of Them

Hal's name and biographical data are found on Niki's birth certificate, for which Micah tells his computer to search.


  • Niki and Hal use more formal names for each other: Niki calls her father "Hal", and Hal calls his daughter "Nicole".
  • In .07%, D.L. refers to Jessica's takeover of Niki more like Niki "turning into [her] old man".
