The Travelers try to assimilate

Last week, the Travelers team detonated the device in hopes that would change the course of Helios and affect the future for good. But as MacLaren said then, he wasn’t sure it worked because they all still existed. Wouldn’t changing the future mean they’d fail to be born? That’s just one of several questions raised during the first six episodes.

With Monday’s new instalment, “Protocol 5,” representing Episode 7, the team goes back to their “normal” lives. After all, with the mission completed—theirs anyway—there’s nothing to do but live in this time. It’s a struggle for everyone, and all isn’t as it seems.

MacLaren
Forbes needs MacLaren’s help, desperately, and what looks like a dangerous, covert operation turns into something completely different and threatens to blow his cover.

Marcy
We’re not sure what’s going on with Marcy, but it involves soft music, a bathtub and some very sharp things. That causes David to draw a line in the sand with regard to her behavior.

Carly
With no mission to complete, Carly’s life as a single mom—and no MacLaren—is a depressing place.

Trevor
He seems to be the happiest about having a new life during this time period. But hanging out with Rene isn’t the bliss he was hoping for.

Philip
Now that the adrenaline rush is over, Philip needs one from the drugs. That, obviously, leads him down a dangerous path. Cue a visit by Ray, who steps in to help out his gambling genius.

Travelers airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on Showcase.
