A misfire is apparently when overwriting a host doen't go well. We have a family being overwritten but one of the kids doesn't... take. And then- it's always bad when you're driving and get side smashed... by a semi. The team wakes up imprisoned- by some unknown party- and their comms were cut out. Well, the whole team except Mac. He's still free. And before the hit they were talking about how misfires were 30% of transfers in the early days- a little bit of Traveler lore.
They're cathetered too.
So their captors ask questions like When are you from? That isn't creepy. Marcy gets questions like- Does David know? They have a camera in David's apartment. Philip, meanwhile, was dosed with something that makes him talk. A Helios tidal wave is mentioned.
Mac desperately contacts another agent who, rather ominously, tells him that she's seen entire teams disappear- taken out. By other teams under orders? Boyd tells him maybe he's next. Mac relates that they have a pending mission that requires six people, minimum, to do.
I like her.
She hopes it's not the Director.
Philip gets shot on screen and Marcy goes into a seizure.
The Traveler Mac is supposed to meet arrives and Mac has to cancel.
Wait... would that work, really?
Mac gets a ping on the network and finds everybody- and they wonder was the mission they canceled the point of it all?
