WARNING: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
Now that Olivia knows that Team Splinter is searching for a weapon that can destroy Titan, she seeks out an old Army of the 12 Monkeys operative to help her find them and bring them to justic: Zalmon Shaw. All he wants is to relive the glorious times in his past, and she'll provide that if he completes a mission.
The gang find a clue from the past. A hotel room in 1966 with the words "Climb the Stairs. Ring the Bell" on it. That's what the Primaries keep saying leads to the weapon! Since it turns out the dead guys in the photo were looking for a "weapon" …
Cassie and Cole get all gussied up in the grooviest duds they can find. And head back to the 60's. The problem is (as Cassie rightfully points out): every time they go, back in time, something happens and, surprise surprise, they're in a time loop where they cause the accident. Sure enough...
And then a tricky few things go down. Cassie keeps an eye out for the 12 Monkeys but has a painful headache that looks almost dangerous. And Cole, upstairs in the hotel room charms a Russian into giving him the weapon.
Cole goes through with it all over again. Cassie has a conversation with Zalmon Shaw about how great the Red Forest would be, and is taken hostage by the Army. It turns out that the poison was administered to them both, by the Zalmon and his son, who is an eccentric little fellow. Cassie was saved by the antidote, but Cole wasn't.
So back in 2043, Jones and Jennifer Goines start thinking about all the ways they can go back and help. And it turns out that the report that sent them back to the 60s was filed by the incredible and awesome…
So, Jennifer Goines gets all gussied up 60s style and goes back to figure out how to help save her friends. But she and Agent Gale end up, yep, being the reason that the words are on the wall and the dudes are dead. Causality as a loop! Once more!
Gale has a plan to save Cole and sends Goines in as he confronts the Zalmon, which leas to Gale shooting the Zalmon in front of his son,who scurries off into the night. While upstairs, Jennifer Goines enters with the antidote to save Cole.
Cassie and Cole have a chat about how they probably won't survive this. And Cassie remembers what Zalmon Shaw told her. That the Red Forest means the ability to be with ALL time at all times. And frankly, that's starting to sound pretty good to her.
