Impulse is the third book in the Jumper series and follows a young teenage girl named Henry Coles. Henry discovers she has powers behind her comprehension. Here is the synopsis of Youtube Red’s Impulse:
A young woman finds she has the extraordinary power of teleportation.
The trailer begins on a cold winter night as the main character, Henry; a 16-year-old girl walks a dark and deserted road. A voiceover says “I told you to stop and you didn’t stop.”
Henry is the outsider, new girl in town. An array of scenes are shown depicting a plethora of characters. Henry is shown back on the deserted road, disrobing her clothes. The voiceover suggests finding other outlets. A classroom is depicted showing the class experiencing a tremor as the teacher’s nameplate on their desk vibrates itself to the edge.
The voiceover explains Henry’s father isn’t who she thinks he is. Henry is shown trying to break free of a chained door. The next moment, Henry is discovered on the ground screaming. A cluster of scenes shows a car running off the road. Henry being stuffed into a car trunk. Finally, another scene where Henry is disclosing to a friend that she can’t account for lost time.
A final scene shows Henry on top of a cliff with a friend overlooking a lake deep below. As Henry leaps down to the lake, her friend screams her name in horror. Henry crashes into the lake and is motionless until she awakes in a splash of water landing back in her room. Henry sits up breathing in massive shock trying to comprehend how she just teleported back to her room.
