WHO IS DOC BROWN? Marty McFly thought he knew, but now even Doc himself isn’t sure. The mystery of the “Continuum Conundrum” deepens — as Marty and Jennifer’s lives are thrown in upheaval again!
On March 3, 1986, Marty McFly and Jennifer Parker are trying to get an amnesiac Doc Brown to remember them. They are concerned, as they are not sure that he even has met them before, as he looks relatively young, which means that he is either from 1955 or from a time period after he received a rejuvenation treatment in 2015.
Doc doesn't even know what year it is, and he is confused about Marty calling him "Doc", as he thought he was just talking like Bugs Bunny. He wasn't even aware that he is a doctor, and thought that he was a deep sea diver, as he was wearing a diving suit. All that Doc remembers is that he was being chased by the men in black, and that he escaped in his car.
At that point, the police arrive, leading Marty to guess that they must have tripped a silent alarm. They get into the unmodified DeLorean DMC-12 and Marty drives right through both the garage door and the fence protecting the secret lab. The police attempt to track the car by checking the license plate, but this car doesn't have any. Marty arrives at the Hill Valley Courthouse, and Jennifer tells him to slow down, as they had managed to outrun the police.
