Doc visits his counterpart in the asylum

The County Asylum was a sanitarium in Hill County.


On November 5, 1955, Otis Peabody reported an alien that crashed into his barn, however he was assumed to be insane and was taken away to the asylum.

On May 2, 1983, in the timeline that Biff controlled Hill Valley, an alternate version of Dr. Emmett Brown was declared insane and committed to the asylum.

On October 26, 1985, in the timeline where the alternate Emmett Brown had been committed, Doc disguised himself and traveled to the asylum. Posing as his counterpart's distant cousin, Mr. Von Braun, he bribed the asylum nurse to allow him to talk with his alternate self. Upon seeing his counterpart, Doc believed that, at some point after being committed, he had been lobotomized.

Doc's assessment of the situation proved to be incorrect, however, as it turned out that Doc's counterpart had used a practice used by some Eastern religions which allowed him to shut off certain higher functions of his brain. He did this to protect the secret of his time travel chamber, which was in the possession of BiffCo.
