Travelers Season 2 Finale Preview: Simon and 001

Travelers

Tonight, Travelers finishes out its really strong second season with a two-hour, two-episode finale that answers some questions and asks even more. We better get a Season 3.

[Warning: General spoilers ahead for the finale.]

In “Simon,” we find out more about Marcy’s fellow patient at the institute (Chad Krowchuk), who’s now out on the street painting those murals she recognizes. Philip wrestles with what he knows and his inability to act on it, but that doesn’t preclude him from trying to steer the boat away from certain catastrophes.

Grant is just as devastated as Kat about their loss, and she steps up to propose a way for both of them to heal.  Carly has to deal with a spiraling Jeff, Trevor finds a little closure, and Marcy and David figure out what this newest version of her means to them. The episode was written by Jason Whiting and directed by William Waring.

In the second hour, “001” the team finally takes on Vincent, who says one thing and does another. More importantly, he challenges them to violate their protocols as he tests those nearest and dearest to them. It’s a taut, emotional hour for all involved, including Simon, who finds himself no closer to the truth.

The finale was written by Ken Kabatoff and directed by Eric McCormack. Over the course of both episodes, look for the return of Ian Tracey (yay!) and Amanda Tapping plus a guest appearance by Van Helsing‘s Rukiya Bernard.

Travelers airs tonight at 9pm ET/PT on Showcase. You can catch up on the first ten episodes of this season on Showcase’s website. Season 1 is running now in the U.S. on Netflix, with Season 2 arriving on 12/26. Click here for all of our Season 2 previews and interviews.
