Traveling back, Colter Stevens is alone and confused. On this mission, he fails and repeats the whole ordeal again once the bomb goes off. Goodwin, the man who he had met earlier tries to explain to him that someone else took over his consciousness during the final minutes of his life. Rutledge the scientist accompanies them and even tries to to help Colter understand all of this. Colter questions them why he canâ€™t stop the bomb every time he goes back and tells them to put him in the exact moment to determine the bombers identity.
