All The Big O released episodes
In the pilot episode, Roger Smith is introduced as Paradigm City's top negotiator. As the episode begins, he is delivering the ransom for a girl named Dorothy, who had been kidnapped from her father, a rich industrialist named Saldano. After the exchange, Saldano arrives and reveals that the Dorothy Roger they had obtained was actually an android fake. When Roger realizes Beck isn't playing fair, he activates the briefcase carrying the ransom and it flies out of Beck's car. When Roger arrives home later, the android Dorothy is there and wants protection. Roger turns her down, but when Roger goes out to search Saldano's plant, Dorothy tags along. They discover Saldano on the verge of death and he tells them that he created something deadly, a giant robot called Dorothy One which was the Dorothy that he was ransoming apparently. After Saldano's death, Dorothy and Roger are ambushed by missile wielding criminals and Dorothy's android strength and speed provides the diversion for Roger to summon Big O.
In the previous episode, Major Dastun and Dorothy looked like they were going to be crushed by Dorothy One as it fell. However, when the dust cleared, Dastun was fine and Dorothy had disappeared. Roger took Big O back into the subway to escape Dastun's rage over the destruction of the fight. Then, he began to search for Dorothy. He received a tip about a nightingale in the city, which led him to a club called Nightingale. There Roger found Dorothy along with a man named Waynewright who said he was her grandfather. Dorothy sang in the club after which Beck arrived, shot Waynewright, knocked out Roger and kidnapped Dorothy. When Roger came to, he found that Beck had managed to restart Dorothy One. Roger called up Big O and went to fight Dorothy One again at the Mint. After punching a hole in Dorothy One's face, Roger discovered that Dorothy was being used to bypass the damage from the earlier fight. Roger managed to put down Dorothy One long enough to jump over and pull Dorothy out to safety.

Episode begins, Roger and Angel are trapped in a building buried under the sea, one of a string apparently created by the Event. Three days earlier, Roger is trying to negotiate to bring down the price of fish for the people outside the domes. He learns that the reason fish is so expensive is because the fishermen won't go out to fish because they are scared of a sea titan in the water. To check out the claims, Roger finds a man who has built a submersible and tries to hire it, but is told it needs to charge up. While there, he sees the â€˜servants of the sea titan', who are actually divers with masks and flippers, but they run away. When he returns later to use the sub, the owner tells him it has already been rented to a woman.

The kidnappers call back, recognize Roger's voice and agree to return the son if Roger brings the ransom. Roger finds Francis at the cabin he was directed to, but the police arrive believing that Roger was the kidnapper.

A piece of the bomb is found to have the word 'Fin' written on it and when Dastun goes to investigate, he catches a glimpse of the woman in white. Afterward, Dastun goes to a committee meeting of the Paradigm Group and tells them that he thinks the attacks are being committed by someone from outside the city. They dismiss his suggestion. Alex Rosewater, the head of Paradigm, watches this and talking with Angel says he has no problem with the citizens learning there were foreigners in the city. Placed on suspension, Dastun tries to jog his memory of the woman in white, while more bombings occur.
