    This was a great episode and probably the turning point in the series with Will taking a more active role from here on out. The interview scene was pretty suspenseful and the episode was pretty good over all. Although I'm not quite sure where Will walked out to after he left the room. This is by far the best show of the summer.
  • Loved to see Will in action!

    I am really enjoying this new show, it is offering something different than what's already on.

    In my simple viewer's opinion, it reminds me of Daybreak without the "groundhog day" twist. They have to figure out who is framing them, and why, while running for their lives.

    Don’t get me wrong! I am not complaining! I loved Daybreak and, I‘m loving Traveler… Especially this episode, which was so amazing I didn’t even realize the time had passed!

    So I hope it doesn’t go the same way and get cancelled!

    I don’t understand why all these good new shows are being dumped!!!!

    I hope it comes back after the 8 scheduled episodes!moreless
  • an episode of will.this episode tells a lot about will.jay and tylor were looking for him after accidentally saw him at the railway station but to no avail.

    i really loved this episode!it is definitely the best episode so far after the great pilot of course.this episode revealed to us the hidden secret of will and most importantly,what really happened on the bombing day.what truly great about the mystery revealed was the fact that will actually a good man!he was being a good friend despite his agreement with the other party by not letting jay and tylor die in the bombing.This information made this series even intriguing as we know that the three buddies should work together in order to save their lives.I loved the way they told the events before and after the bombing.all the flashbacks were interesting and surprising!Can't wait for the next episode.this series is getting better!moreless
  • The best episode of Traveler yet, and the episode that pushed the show as entertaining but with weak potential, to entertaining with tremendous upside given the chance.

    I've enjoyed Traveler, but I knew that it was riddled with more problems then one can count, and if it wasn't for the fact it was summer who knows if I'd watch it. This episode however was by far the best one yet, as Will Traveler finally got his time to shine, and he aced all of his parts. This show is about him, and its just sad that it took half the season for Will to be the star of the show he is. This episode could be the turning point of Traveler into being a halfway decent show, but we probably will never know as it will vanish in the summer abyss.moreless
  • We learn more about Will and what he has been doing. Tyler and Jay travel to Boston.

    So Will seems to not be as bad as we all figured, it seems he really likes Tyler nad Jay, I mean he was supposed to kill them in the Drexler. His interogator was very good, kind of upset he killed, she would have made a good villain, although in this show, who knows.

    So Will was supposed to let Tyler and Jay die so that they would be blamed in the Drexler. It is clear that he did like them, but I feel Will is in more trouble then we are led to believe.

    The FBI is starting to catch on that there is more here than they suspect.

    I still don't get the guy in the jeep, the hotel bell boy....whatever, what is his deal?

    I cannot wait until ther next episode this is a great series.moreless
