4. Episode 2 Recap

Ben’s next leap is to 1998 into an astronaut named David Tamura. He makes the leap just as David is aboard the Atlantis and taking off into space. Since David is one of Ben’s personal heroes, his memories come back sooner this time.

Addison turns her apartment upside down after receiving Ben’s video message. She locates a hidden flash drive but it turns out to be password protected. She asks Ian for help in gaining access to the files.

Later, Addison finds out about Ben’s connection to Janis Calavicci. Magic asks the team to maintain Ben’s memory loss as that would be the only safeguard they can put in place in case Ben and Janis secretly planned to put the operation in jeopardy.

Once the team locates Ben, Addison visits him as a hologram and tells him that he’s probably here to save David as he died on this mission. Ben makes a dangerous decision that ultimately leads to him saving the crew’s lives.
