Episode 4

PrimevalBrought back to modern-day London by force, Helen Cutter is ordered held by Lester for questioning. Helen makes a threat – prehistoric creatures will be unleashed into London unless she is allowed to go back through an anomaly. She leads the team straight to one and then bolts and runs through the anomaly, leading them to a prehistoric hillside where dozens of anomalies lead – the nexus point of time travel. Helen disappears, but there’s a new problem: a small flock of dodos waddle into the present day, bringing with them a parasitic infection that modern medicine can’t hope to contain. One of Connor’s college roommates becomes patient zero.
