Preview: And old face revisits MacLaren on Travelers

Well, Travelers fans, what did you think of the showdown between Vincent and MacLaren? Pretty great, huh? As Enrico Colantoni told us last week, Vincent’s journey is going to be a fun one.

Monday’s newest, entitled “11:27,” is one heck of a ride too, and marks the return of a character last seen in the memorable Season 1 instalment, “Bishop.” Here’s the official synopsis from Showcase:

MacLaren and the team must help a fellow traveler plan his own assassination while helping an unsuspecting activist complete a deadly mission.

And here are a few more tidbits we can share after watching a screener of the instalment written by Ashley Park and Pat Smith and directed by Amanda Tapping.

Say what?!
We’ll admit that “11:27” sprints out of the gate, leaving us wondering exactly what was going on. It’s meant to put viewers on their heels and is effective in doing that. And, just as quickly, things lock into place.

Bishop returns
Eagle-eyed fans will recognize the profile of Congressman Bishop (Gerard Plunkett) in the main photo. He’s got scathing words for MacLaren and the team, as well as an odd mission directive.

Jenny + Philip
It’s taken us until this week to realize that’s 21 Thunder actress Stephanie Bennett doing such a great job in the role of Jenny, who is helping keep Philip under her power with drugs.

Trevor + Abigail
Paloma Kwiatkowski checks in as Abigail, a mysterious young woman who has a request for Trevor. He follows through but upon reflection has major questions about what he’s helping Abby do. Can he stop her in time?

Travelers airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on Showcase.
