Brian Finch gives supercomputers a run for their money in a new clip from “Limitless” obtained exclusively by TheWrap.

Finch, played by Jake McDorman, is wrapping up a self-defense lesson when Rebecca (Jennifer Carpenter) approaches him with photos recovered from a suspect email address. It turns out the photos are encrypted instructions for a terrorist plot.

Finch is able to decrypt the messages with nothing more than his NZT-enhanced mind.

In Tuesday’s episode of “Limitless,” Brian learns a shocking secret about Rebecca’s late father but worries that telling her will land him in legal trouble.

Also, Brian accidentally meddles in Rebecca’s personal life while learning self-defense from her secret boyfriend, FBI Agent Casey Rooks (Desmond Harrington).

Desmond Harrington reunites with his “Dexter” co-star Jennifer Carpenter when he guest stars as Agent Rooks.

“Limitless” airs on CBS Tuesdays at 10 p.m./9c.
