Only one more episode of "Traveler" to go, and I'm beginning to accept that I'm not ever going to understand everything that happens in this show. But "The Reunion" was yet another fun ride with yet another major twist at the end, so let's get to it.
Lots more, so read more
As "Traveler" hurtles toward its season finale, the episodes are starting to be more closely balanced between Jay and Tyler's story and Will's, leading me to believe that there's going to be a massive smackdown between the three of them. So I'd just like to go on record now as saying that if they just hug and make up, it will be the lamest series ending ever.
But I'm getting ahead of myself. This week's episode starts with Jay and Tyler heading back to New York, where Jay ever-so-helpfully reminds us it's dangerous to be because people haven't forgotten about the Drexler bombing. Well, maybe they shouldn't be talking about it in public, then, huh? There was lots more wacky logic in this week's episode, so read more
This week's episode of "Traveler" was the most action-packed hour yet, and for the first time, I'm actually a little sad that this show will (presumably) be ending for good in just a few weeks. I've grown attached to Jay and Tyler, but this week also featured a heavy dose of Will, the reason I liked this show in the first place.
This week jumped back and forth between Jay and Tyler's story and Will's interrogation, so there was a lot going on. Here's my take on what happened:

I realized last night that I no longer have a clue what's happening on "Traveler." I don't know who's good, who's bad and who's just creepy; I don't know who's telling the truth and who's lying. And in that way, I guess the show has managed to put me in the shoes of Jay and Tyler, as their lives start to feel even more unhinged.
But what I love most about "Traveler" at this point is the final two minutes of every episode. In the first episode, Tyler's dad reveals that he's been on the phone with someone mysterious. In the second, the scary Homeland Security guy appears. In the third, we learn that Will's alive. And in the fourth ... well, I'll get to that in a second. First, here are a few of my thoughts on "The Out":

Last night's episode of "Traveler" left me with one big question (and a few smaller ones, but more on those later) --- how the heck are they going to keep this show going? I mean, beyond one season sounds impossible, but even just after three episodes I'm confused as to how the writers are going to keep the story going. Anyway, here are some notes on the episode:

One thing I noticed watching last night's second episode of "Traveler": That show moves fast! So much happens that I could hardly believe every time it was time for another commercial break. The downside of that is that too much seemed to happen on this week's episode, and it was hard to keep track of all the twists and turns. Still, "Traveler" is a mystery that I'm having fun trying to solve.
In case you missed the first episode, here's a quick rundown: Jay, Tyler and Will were grad school friends and roommates who decide to take a road trip before starting their professional lives. At an art museum in New York, Will encourages the guys to pull a prank by rollerblading through the museum. He says he'll be behind them filming, but instead, he tells Jay he's "sorry I had to do this" just before the museum blows up. The two end up as suspects in a terrorist plot, and nobody can find any trace of Will, not even a photograph. Jay wants to reason with the FBI while Tyler wants to run; in the end, thanks to help from several mysterious characters and following the death of a few FBI agents, the two set off for Tyler's rich dad's house somewhere in the country.
That's where the second episode picks up, so to talk about it, read more
