In 2043, Jones tries to get Cole back from 2015, but the time machine is not cooperating, and she has Ramse breathing down her neck. If she doesn’t get him back, Cole will be lost in time forever.
Meanwhile, in 2015, Cassie and Aaron are having a hard time accepting the idea that the mission has ended. So the new plan? Go to Chechnya and be sure.
What Jones needs is a new core for the time machine, and the only place she can find it is in a place called Spearhead. Whitley agrees to go and to take Ramse along.
What’s Spearhead? Well, it was a place where the standing governments went to work on a cure for the virus for 20 years after the plague began.
Turns out the virus mutated, and one of the Generals (General Foster) went a little crazy and staged a military coup. That’s when Jones left and started Project Splinter.
It turns out Cole, who is trapped in a deep dark hole in the ground in Chechnya, has been hurt pretty bad and has to do surgery on himself to remove the bullet in his leg. Gross.
Cassie and Aaron meet with Senator Royce and convince him to put her on the ground in Chechnya to verify whether the virus is live.
Getting the other core from General Foster is not going to be easy, because not only does the General seem a little nuts, he’s also using the core to power a giant computer that’s looking for a cure.
When Ramse storms out of Foster’s office in a huff, he bumps into an old friend named Elena, who introduces him to…Sam. Who is totally Ramse’s son.
When Jones stages her last attempt to get Cole back, the splinter machine is blown up almost entirely by the amount of energy pumped into it.
The problem is that Cole is stuck back in time. And not doing well. And additionally, he only has 48 hours before he’s lost there forever.
While packing for her big trip to Chechnya, Cassie takes a little time to rekindle a lingering flame with Aaron.
Having no other choice but to ask for help from the person she likes least, Jones comes to Spearhead.
General Foster treats Jones and her men to a nice dinner and squares off with Jones about the proper way to end the epidemic. The fight gets pretty ugly until she shows him a photo of his wife.
When General Foster won’t give them the core, there is some dissention in the ranks when Jones’ team begins to ask themselves – is a cure possible?
When Whitley asks if perhaps Jones shouldn’t make a deal with Foster, she tells him to take the core by any means necessary.
Cassie bribes a cab driver in Chechnya to get her as close to where the bombing happened as possible, and starts bribing people to wear masks to protect them from the virus.
Cole is rescued! By the team in Chechnya wearing haz-mat suits and masks. BUT…
Here’s what Cassie sees. Uh-oh. Thing is, when she arrives at the bomb site, there’s no Cole, because he’s splintered. Cassie thinks it’s over!
This adorable Chechnyan girl tells Cole that there’s been a plague all over the world.
It turns out that Cole has jumped to 2017 and the plague is still ravaging everything.
