WARNING: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
We pick up where we left off last week, with everyone unconscious after the Blink Drive malfunction. But when everyone comes to, we discover a new wrinkle. They've been transported 600 years into the past.
With limited options, and limited supplies, they head to the only place they know there are people, and where they discover another Blink Drive: Earth. More specifically, Wisconsin — circa early 21st Century.
Everyone's covers are kinda great in a ridiculous way. Two is Elaine, a soccer mom. Three is Mitch, a "slob" and Elaine's husband. Five is their "goth chick" daughter, Apple. Six is a "salary man" named Malvik, and Android is an "upwardly mobile suburban professional" named Rihanna - who is married to Six.
Anyway, they move into the suburbs where they're immediately greeted by their neighbors and spied upon by the neighbor kids who definitely have a Stranger Things vibe to them. The kids think they're spies.
Everybody splits up to try to find the Blink Drive and to buy ingredients for chocolate chip cookies so they can bring something to the neighborhood party. Two gets kind of adorable, all smiles, running into chocolate shops, wanting to adopt a dog.
Three notices her new, lighter attitude and tells her that he misses seeing her like this. He points out that, even though she's the boss she doesn't have to carry that weight alone. They're a team. It's sweet and slightly out of character for him.
While Two and Three go to investigate the professor's house, Five takes some time to hang out with Jake, one of the kids. He is impressed with her gaming skills. We can't tell if he's staring at her because he thinks she's an alien, or because he thinks she's pretty. Probably both.
More bad news back at the party where Android tells Five and Six that the Marauder's proximity alert has been triggered. It might be nothing but they need to check it out anyway and with no car, Six has to find an alternate means of transportation.
He used to work on the Blink Drive project but realized that the project was dangerous and would put him and his fellow scientists in danger as well. He escaped to the past and now he's gonna use it to go even further back.
Five's trap works, clearing the way for them to board the ship and head home. But first, she's got to say a goodbye to her new friend Jake who adorably professes his love for her. She lets him down easy and they head back to the future.
They make it back and Two decides it's too dangerous to keep the Blink Drive operational. The recall could be used again and they don't want to end up stranded in the past. They'll only use it for emergencies.
They also discover that they didn't break history but they were responsible for inspiring Jake to become a sci-fi author which in turn inspired his great-granddaughter to invent Faster Than Light travel. Go figure.
