Timeline: Takes place during episode 6.
Lasky: How long is Cole overdue for return?
Adler: Four hours, 23 minutes.
Rachelle: All systems check out. From a technical standpoint, there is no reason why he shouldn't be back.
Lasky: Then why isn't he?
Adler: Could be anything. Solar interference. Coil fluctuations. Perhaps the solenoid actuator is half a degree off axis. Who knows?
Rachelle: Maybe he's dead...
[Lasky and Adler turn to look at Rachelle.]
Rachelle: What I'm saying is, maybe we have to trust that the machine will pull him back when it's ready. When he's ready.
Adler: Not this mystical nonsense again!
Rachelle: You have to admit, what we're dealing with here, isn't strictly speaking, 100% science.
Adler: I have to do no such thing.
Lasky: This doesn't make any sense.
Adler: What is it?
Lasky: Cole's tracer signal. It's putting him in 2043. He should be standing right in front of us.
Adler: That can't be right.
Rachelle: Unless there's been a divergence in the timeline.
[The screen starts flickering, inter-cutting the scientists with a grubby looking man standing in the same spot... a member of the West VII.]
Adler: That's impossible. You're talking about an alternate...
[Adler is cut off as the screen switches to the other man.]
