So Jennifer Goines is in charge of Markridge, Ramse is about to take part in some kind of event, Jones is still smoking all the cigarettes left in the world, and Cassie and Cole are falling in love because…
…of this guy. Aaron Marker betrayed them, and is now working for the bad guys. And Cole and Cassie want to know what's happening next which he tells them: the next big move for the Army? Going after the splinter machine.
When Aaron Marker escapes from the beating given to him by Cassie and Cole, he makes his way to a storeroom, where he uses fire to defend himself, but ends up trapped under a shelving unit as the flames engulf him.
Cassie and Cole attend the Markridge Annual meeting to hear what Jennifer Goines has to say. As expected, it is completely nut-job bonkers crazy. She’s going to resurrect the dodo. And possibly unicorns. So…
So Cassie slaps her. And that, actually, seems to work a little bit. Jennifer calms down a bit and tells them the truth: that the person they’re looking for is a guy named Ethan, who is actually...Ramse.
In 2043, Deacon and those people covered in silver paint enlist the help of a guy who brings a truckload of angry birds. The birds jam up the core, and that’s about it for the Splinter Compound’s electricity supply. This just proves what we already know to be true: in the future, birds will be weapons.
What Cole finds is Ramse, who turns out to be using the machine to send himself forward in time to SEE his son – he’s not interested in destroying it at all! Also, he reveals he's not the Witness which...wait what?
All of this while the end of season one leaves us with this: nutsy ol’ Jennifer Goines, on a private jet, skittering off with a bunch of packages and claiming she has work to do. Is she going to spread the virus?
