Travelers (2016) s20e07 Episode Script

17 Minutes

1 Previously, on Travelers [MACLAREN]: It could correct your condition.
What about all my memories of the 21st? Obviously, none of that.
[MACLAREN]: I loved you so much.
[MARCY]: They're his memories, not yours.
If something doesn't work out the way you want it to, why don't you just go back and try again? We can only go as far back as the arrival point of the most recent Traveler.
There's no do-overs.
Messengers count.
Messengers cause the same ripples in space-time as Travelers.
She won't be me.
She won't remember the most important part of who I am now.
[CAR DOOR CLOSES] [TYPING ON PHONE] [PUTS PHONE DOWN] [STARTS CAR ENGINE] I'll meet you outside Ops.
Copy that.
[] [VEHICLE APPROACHES OUTDOORS] [CAR HORN BEEPS TWICE] Oh! That's the boss! Road trip.
You're such a kid.
Yeah, on the outside.
What's that? Boop! What a freak, man.
[] What? [KNOCK ON DOOR] Oh Wow.
They're beautiful.
Thank you.
Mom.
[SCOFFS SOFTLY] Mom remembered.
"Happy "anniversary Grant.
" [CARLY]: No service? Not one bar.
Should've called when we stopped at that gas station.
[CARLY]: Told you.
Yeah, then we got lost.
How long till impact? 23 minutes, 6 seconds.
Ish? No, pretty much exactly.
I'll have to call her after the mission.
I don't understand the big deal about anniversaries anyway.
My father missed their 25th a few months back.
And? Gary paid a heavy price, boss.
Fortunately, Kat's a reasonable person.
Ah, reason's got nothin' to do with it.
You're already in the doghouse.
Oh, come on.
No, she's right.
Your window was early this morning.
It's already closed.
How do you know this information? Covered it in training.
"21st-Century Female Behavior.
" Ah.
Well, I'll buy her flowers, then.
What anniversary is it? - 10 years.
- Yikes.
Whoa.
Ah, you're screwing with me now.
No, 10's a big one.
Even I know that.
Okay, well, help me out.
What's an appropriate gift for 10 years? Tin.
- Yeah, 10.
- No, "tin.
" - As in the metal.
- Tin? That's the traditional gift.
I'm supposed to give her something made from tin? [PHILIP]: If you're a traditionalist, yes.
There's a more modern anniversary theme for 10 years, but you're not gonna like it.
Diamonds.
Now I know you're making this up.
Technically, diamond jewelry.
Yes.
- Seriously? - You might've gotten away With flowers, if you'd called.
"Get away with flowers if you called.
" [] [MACLAREN]: Where does it come down? [PHILIP]: 600 meters to our south-southwest, in seven minutes, eight seconds.
There-ish.
It's amazing this becomes a dry lakebed in 50 years.
Do we need to worry about a wave? Nah.
Probably a splash, but it's not too big.
Just extremely rare and important to the future.
More rare than that other mineral what was it? Diamond? That's the one.
[GRUMBLING] All right, all right.
Let's get the recovery gear ready and make sure everything's working.
The Director gave us an important mission.
Let's get it right.
[ENGINE SPUTTERS] [ENGINE STARTER SPUTTERS] [] [OUTBOARD ROARS] [] [MACHINE GUNS FIRING] [OUTBOARD IDLING] [IDLING CONTINUES] [] [WIND WHISTLING] [HIGH-PITCHED RINGING BEGINS] No! [SCREAMING] No! Ah! [RINGING STOPS] [RINGING] [ANSWERING MACHINE BEEPS] You've reached Special Agent Grant MacLaren.
Please leave a message.
[] [RINGING] Wakefield.
[WOMAN'S VOICE]: This is an emergency communication, Protocol Alpha.
Protocol Alpha? Who is this? This is Traveler 5001.
We have less than 60 seconds before signal loss.
I'm listening.
I need armed air assets to the following coordinates A.
S.
A.
P 49.
3506 degrees north, 122.
8599 degrees west.
Can you do this? Possibly.
I have a helicopter already in the air with agents aboard, but they're not Travelers.
I said Protocol Alpha! Can you get them to these coordinates in 17 minutes? Negative.
Best case is is 25 to 30.
What about assets on the ground? 25 minutes is our closest anything.
You're talking the middle of nowhere.
I do have agents on the ground within roughly [BEEP] Hello? [CHUTE FLUTTERING] Give me your keys! Heh.
Right.
How 'bout we just wait till your little brother touches down? It's an emergency! Give me the keys.
They're in the ignition.
[DOOR OPENS] Wait.
What emergency? Carrie, what's wrong? Just tell me what's going on! I'll drive you myself! Carrie! Carrie! Wayne! Your sister just took my car! [BEEP] You've reached Special Agent Grant MacLaren.
Please leave a [BEEP] [] [CARLY]: No service? Not one bar.
Should've called when we stopped at that gas station.
I told you.
Yeah, then we got lost.
How long till meteor impact? 22 minutes, 51 seconds.
Ish? No, pretty much exactly.
I'll call her after the mission.
I don't understand the big deal about anniversaries anyway.
[TREVOR]: My father forgot their 25th a few months back.
And? Gary paid a heavy price, boss.
Luckily, Kat's a reasonable person.
Reason's got nothing to do with it.
You're already doomed.
[] [] Oh, my gosh.
That's a big gun.
Um am I on private property right now? I'm so lost.
You You want me to go back? Okay, I can I can do that.
Um, can you just tell me where Alouette Lake is? Are you telling me the lake's back that way, or are you still telling me to turn around? Okay.
[PANTING] Jesus.
Callahan! What is it? Where did the Fraser meteor come down? A dry lakebed just north-east of here.
Why? It wasn't dry this early in the 21st.
What's going on? I just got off the phone with a Traveler who requested armed assets to the exact same coordinates the meteor was historically found 50 years from now.
We got cut off, but she said it was Protocol Alpha.
How's that possible? What would've happened if Robert Fraser hadn't discovered that element in 2068? There'd be no room-temperature superconductor for quantum processing, no leap in artificial intelligence, no consciousness-transfer technology No Director.
Do we know when the meteor came down? I'm no historian, but I'm about to bet my job at the FBI that it's sometime in the next 15 minutes, and that the Faction is trying to get to it before we do.
The Director overwrote all the Faction members.
Only the Faction members it could get eyes on.
There could be hundreds still out there, or worse, it's somebody else.
[GROANING] [AIR HORN BELLOWS] [GASPING] Hey! What the hell? You all right? [IDLING] [] [WHEEZING] [PAINED GRUNTING AND PANTING] [ROARS] [GROANING] [CARLY]: Amazing to me this becomes a dry lakebed in 50 years.
[MARCY]: Do we need to worry about a wave? [TREVOR]: Nah.
Probably a splash.
Nothing too big.
Just extremely rare and important to the future.
Even more rare than that other mineral what is it again? You mean diamond? That's it.
All right, let's get the recovery gear ready and make sure everything's working.
The Director gave us an important mission.
Let's not mess it up.
[OUTBOARD ROARS] [OUTBOARD PURRING IN DISTANCE] Get back from the water! [WHEEZING] [AUTOMATIC GUNFIRE OPENS] [SILENCE FALLS] [] [HIGH-PITCHED RINGING RISES] [SCREAMING] [SCREAMING] Carrie! Carrie, what's wrong? [SCREAMING] [CAR RADIO PLAYING] Buddy, open your chute Wayne! Open your chute! [] God.
Oh, no.
Oh, no, no, no, no! No, no! Wayne? Wayne! [LARS SOBBING] Oh, God.
Oh, God.
Oh Carrie! What're you doing? Carrie! [] [VICIOUS BARKING] [CARRIE SCREAMING] [] [SCREAMING] Carrie, what's wrong? [SCREAMING] [MACLAREN]: Well, then, help me out.
What's an appropriate gift for 10 years? - Tin.
- Yeah, 10.
No, tin.
Like soup tin? As in the metallic element.
That's the traditional gift.
I'm supposed to give her something made from tin? [] You cut that deployment close.
What happened? We collided.
He's unconscious, but I managed to get his parachute open before we separated.
If he lands like that, he'll break his neck.
Do you have any weapons in the car? - What? - Weapons.
No.
What are you doing? The camera saw a knife in the pickup.
What? Carrie! Carrie! [] [VICIOUS BARKING] [ENGINE STARTS] [] Hey.
This place is where? I'm lost.
Can you help me? O-Okay.
Fine, but this place is where? I need to know.
[CARRIE GRUNTS] [] [CARLY]: Might've gotten away with flowers if you'd called.
Yeah, we established I made a mistake.
[MARCY]: Now you got to get her a diamond-something.
Really? Explain how buying something hard and shiny, and artificially expensive, because it's controlled by a cartel, gets me out of the dog pound.
"Doghouse.
" Were you trained at all in 21st-century male behavior? I think he's nailing it.
[PHILIP: Historically, diamonds have always been a rare and precious gift.
Oh, shut up.
Solve your own problems then.
Yeah, but if it's rare and precious she wants, I'll chip a fragment off the meteor after we recover it.
It could come in handy if Kathryn ever needs a high-temperature superconductor for quantum processing.
[MACLAREN]: You shut up, too.
[PHILIP CHUCKLING] [AIR HORN BELLOWS] Hey! What the hell? Asshole.
[] [HORN BLARING] [] [PHONE RINGING] You've reached Special Agent Grant MacLaren.
- Please leave a message.
- [BEEP] Hey, it's me.
Just giving you the benefit of the doubt here.
I know you're probably busy on a case and I married an FBI agent, but I'm assuming, when you write "won't be by tonight, work" in a text, it just means that you're gonna be late, because tonight, of all nights, we should spend some time together no matter what time it is.
Hint, hint.
[DEEP BREATH] Okay, so I'm gonna plan something for later, nothing fancy.
You just need to let me know roughly when that will be.
You can even text me.
I'll be here.
Bye.
[WHEEZING] MacLaren! You're in danger! MacLaren! [MACLAREN]: All right, well, let's get the recovery gear ready, make sure everything's working.
The Director gave us an important mission.
Let's not screw it up.
[CARRIE, IN DISTANCE]: MacLaren! Did you hear that? What? Your team is in danger! MacLaren! Run! Carrie? Get off the beach! What're you doing here? - Traveler 500 - [GUNSHOTS] [AUTOMATIC GUN FIRING] [FIRING] [] [] [SCREAMING]: Oh, God! [GASPS AS RINGING STOPS] Carrie, pull your chute.
Carrie! What happened up there? [WEAKLY]: We collided.
Then Wayne must be unconscious.
Give me your keys.
- Wait, what? - Your keys.
No.
You're hurt! I need to go.
No, no, no.
You're not going anywhere.
You're staying right here.
The future is at stake.
No, you got a concussion.
But the faction is gonna win if we do not act.
Okay, whatever.
Just Just don't move, okay? Your brother's in trouble.
[CARRIE GROANING] He's gonna break his neck.
[WHIMPERING AND GROANING] [] [PANTING WEAKLY] [] [SCREAMING] [RINGING STOPS] [GRUNTS] [GROANS] [] [] What happened? Did you crash into each other? [SPUTTERING WEAKLY] Too much strain on the host.
What? What? There are five people on a remote beach.
It's not far Who? Doesn't matter.
Listen.
You need to help them.
I can't make it.
You're not making any sense.
[PAINED GRUNTS] Everything is at stake.
You need to do this.
Do what? Do what? I-I don't understand! The coordinates.
Y-You need You You need to [SOBS] Carrie? [SOBBING] Carrie.
Oh, God Oh, God.
Oh, God! [MACLAREN]: Well, if it's rare and precious she wants, I'll chip a fragment off the meteor after we recover it.
It could come in handy if Kathryn ever needs a high-temperature superconductor for a quantum frame.
[MACLAREN]: You shut up too.
Are you sure this is it? [PHILIP]: This is the place.
[MACLAREN]: It sure doesn't look anything like the pictures when it was found.
This is beautiful.
Yeah, it's nice.
Nice? This is like seeing Niagara Falls before it went dry, or the Great Valley before the domes were built.
Yeah.
I said it was nice.
She's not wrong.
[HIGH-PITCHED RINGING] [] [OUTBOARD ROARS] [GUNS BLASTING] [HIGH-PITCHED RINGING RISES] [SOBBING] Car keys! Give me the keys! [SOBBING] Oh, my God.
Wayne, she's dead.
Give me the keys! [LARS WEEPING] [] [DOG BARKING] [ENGINE STARTS] [MOTORCYCLE ROARING] [ENGINE STARTS] [] [PHONE RINGING] You've reached Special Agent Grant MacLaren.
Please leave a message.
[BEEP] Hello, Special Agent Grant MacLaren.
This is your apparently-not-so-special wife of 10 years, as of today.
10 years, Grant.
I left you a phone message and I sent you a "Happy Anniversary" text before that, but neither really cover the range of emotion that I'm feeling at the moment.
All I can say is, you bloody well better be shopping in a jewelry store right now that happens to have shitty cell phone reception.
Call me back when you get this.
Yeah, I said it was nice.
She's not wrong.
This is 026.
Inbound with a full load.
About an hour out.
[DISPATCH]: 026, copy.
See you then.
[HORN HONKING REPEATEDLY] Piece of shit.
[HONKING] [] [GUN BLASTING] Got a sec? Yeah.
Is everything all right? If you mean with Kat and the pregnancy - The pills you gave me - This isn't the time - Or the place.
- No, I know.
I was going to ask about you.
I'm fine.
I don't think you are.
Part of the team leader's job is to have some inkling about the general welfare - I said that I was fine.
- You're not fine.
You're unhappy.
Look, Marcy, you can't possibly remember this, but I didn't want to be reset? Someone told you? We should just get back to the mission.
No.
There's plenty of time.
Let them take care of it.
Look, I didn't see the good in telling you that information, and maybe I was wrong, but it's pretty obvious to me, and probably everyone else, that the new Marcy is different from the old one in ways she wouldn't approve.
She? That's your word.
Well, hers.
[] I just [DEEP BREATH, SIGHS] I just can't help but feel that I'm not really What? Whole.
That, when Grace sent my consciousness to the future, repackaged it, and then sent it back again, that she left out what made me "me".
[] That very day, you told me you were afraid of losing the most important part of who you had become in your short time in the 21st.
How do I even know what that is? I don't think it's my place to say, but I can give you a hint.
After that plane crash that should've killed me, when you and a million nanites were trying to put me back together my own consciousness took refuge in the memories of Grant MacLaren.
Well, that's not possible.
There are none.
Only a few.
Disconnected fragments.
[] Of what? Of how much Grant MacLaren loved his wife.
Memories even his death couldn't erase.
How do I possibly access that? You're the doctor.
[] Where does it come down? 600 meters to our south-southwest.
[FIRING] [GUNS FIRING] [] [CARRIE]: Killer day, huh? [MACLAREN]: Yeah.
Yeah.
It's killer.
What's are you guys up to? Uh, heading up to a lake, do a little camping.
- Fishing! - Fishing.
What about you? What are you up to? About 15,000 feet.
We're going skydiving.
Oh! That sounds terrifying.
You know, it's Oh, yeah.
No.
It'll clear up.
You know, statistically, it's actually safer than driving.
So people tell me.
You should try it sometime.
No.
I'm not I'm not so good with things in the sky.
Okay.
- [THUMPS ROOF] - Gotta fly, Carrie.
See you later.
Yeah, have fun Carrie.
Isn't she a little young for you? And I'm married.
I know.
Uh, speaking of which your wife just texted you, saying "Happy Anniversary".
What? Shit! You might wanna give her a call.
Didn't have any fresh fruit like you asked, so I got you something called a "fruit pie" instead.
Has the word "fruit" in it.
Sure does.
Thanks, Trev.
That's great.
[PIE HITS GARBAGE CAN] Whoa! Turn it up! This is my favorite part! No, you'll just sing louder.
[] [SINGS ALONG, OFF-KEY] Don't roll your eyes at me! [] Back to where I was before Bye-bye, baby [] Well, the problem is, when I said turn, you didn't turn.
The GPS said there's no road.
Well, there's one on the map.
So we'll turn around.
- Okay.
- There's lots of time.
Thank you.
[] [] [HIGH-PITCHED RINGING] [GASPS AND SCREAMS] [RINGING STOPS] [BRAKES HISS] [MARCY]: Are you sure this is it? This is the place.
Sure doesn't look anything like the pictures when it was found.
This is beautiful.
[DOG BARKING] [ENGINE REVS] [] Marcy, you can't possibly remember this, but I didn't want to be reset? Someone told you? We should just get back to the mission.
No.
There's plenty of time.
Let them take care of it.
Look.
I didn't see the good in telling you that information, and maybe I was wrong, but it's pretty obvious to me, and probably everyone else, that the new Marcy is different from the old one in ways she wouldn't approve.
[] That very day, you told me you were afraid of losing the most important part of who you had become in your short time in the 21st.
How do I even know what that is? I don't think it's my place to say, but I can give you a hint.
[GUNSHOT] [] After the plane crash that should've killed me, when you and a million nanites were trying to put me back together my own consciousness took refuge in the memories of Grant MacLaren.
But how do I possibly access that? You're the doctor.
[WAYNE, IN DISTANCE]: MacLaren! Did you hear that? [THUDS] [WHEEZING INTENSELY] Ohh! [] MacLaren! [GUNS FIRING] [CLICKS] [WHEEZING] [CARLY]: Identify yourself.
Traveler 5008.
I'm on a Protocol Alpha mission We know, it's all over.
Marcy, all clear! No, one more down the road.
I had to go around him.
I took care of him first.
We did it.
Thank you both.
That was close.
You don't know how close.
[WHEEZES] We weren't the first.
We had to keep trying.
[PHILIP]: How many times? I was the ninth volunteer.
Jesus.
If the element ended up in the hands of the Faction, the whole Traveler program might never [BOOM] See? Just a splash.
Our mission is to recover and secure the meteorite upon impact, so We'll stay here and watch your back till you're done.
I'll have him patched up by then.
There's one other thing.
We have your next mission.
[OUTBOARD ROARS] []
