"12 Monkeys" Season 1 Episodes (2015)
Episode #1: "Splinter" - January 16, 2015
In 2043, scientists led by Katarina Jones complete a Project Splinter time machine to stop an apocalyptic plague before it happens. Their best lead is a corrupted 2017 recording from virologist Cassandra Railly which identifies Leland Frost with the plague's origins and prophetically asks for James Cole, whom Jones recruits as a chrononaut. Cole questions Railly in 2013, proving he is a time traveller by causing a scratch to appear on a future version of her watch, but she does not yet know about Frost. Railly investigates on her own and when they meet again in 2015 she has identified Frost as Markridge Group CEO Leland Goines who is working on biological weapons. Cole fails to assassinate Goines and they are captured, Goines realizing that Cole is a time traveller he'd met in 1987 when Cole was looking for the Army of the 12 Monkeys. Knowing he will survive to do this, Cole puts the two versions of Railly's watch together, creating an explosive paradox. He kills Goines but it does not rewrite the post-apocalyptic future. Elsewhere, psychiatric patient Jennifer Goines inherits her father's fortunes and is shown drawing the monkey logo.
#2 "Mentally Divergent" - January 23, 2015
Cole is directed to find information about a patient in a Philadelphia mental institution who is somehow linked to the "Army of the 12 Monkeys." The scientists attempt to send him to 2015, but he winds up in North Korea in 2006, where an interrogator finds Cole's note with the institution's address. After being redirected to 2015 Cole finds the mentally unstable Jennifer Goines in the institution. Railly gets Aaron Marker to take her to hide in her parents' old bookstore, and she tells him there's a cover-up taking place about Leland Goines' death. Aaron brings her information spied from North Korea identifying Cole's presence there in 2006, as well as the address of the institution from Cole's note. At the institution Jennifer tells Cole that she worked for her father, and that she's one of only two people left who know the location of his secret lab, the Night Room. Just as Railly arrives at the institution to get Cole, a mysterious man with a scar (Tom Noonan), who killed Jennifer's coworkers at her father's lab (leading to her mental breakdown), as well as Railly's ex-NSA contact, arrives and kidnaps Jennifer.
#3 "Cassandra Complex" - January 30, 2015
Cole and Railly attempt to track down Henri Toussaint, the only person besides Jennifer to know the Night Room's location, discovering he was murdered by an unknown assailant while working with Railly to contain an epidemic in Haiti in 2014. Cole is sent back to 2014 Haiti, where he locates Henri, but the Pallid Man catches up to them. The 2014 Railly, paranoid that the Haitian outbreak is the 2017 plague, has a breakdown and is relieved of duty. Cole helps Henri escape the Pallid Man, and Henri tells him how to find the Night Room. The Haitian epidemic turns out not to be the plague, and Cole rejoins Railly in 2015. Railly takes a job at the CDC to gather further information on the Night Room. It is revealed (though not to Railly) that Cole murdered Henri to stop the Army from interrogating him. In 2043, Ramse encounters Max, a woman he knew from when he and Cole were members of a group called the West VII. He is suspicious of her claim that she has left the West VII, but lets her go. She reports back to Deacon, leader of the West VII, that she has found Cole.
#4 "Atari" - February 6, 2015
In 2043, the West VII assault the temporal facility where the time machine is housed, entering through a hidden tunnel. Ramse and Jones are apparently killed, but not before Jones sends Cole back in time to 2015. Flashbacks reveal how Cole and Ramse joined the West VII, and how Cole and Max became intimately involved. Some time later, Ramse openly challenges Deacon's brutality, and Deacon asks Cole to kill him. At the last minute, Cole refuses and flees the West VII with Ramse, leaving Max behind. Back in 2043, the time machine malfunctions and sends Cole back just a few days. He is captured by Deacon and forced to reveal the location of the hidden tunnel (his going back in time made the attack possible in the first place). Max frees Cole and they use his foreknowledge of how the attack happened to defeat Deacon's soldiers, saving Ramse and Jones, but Deacon sees the time machine and escapes. Max joins Project Splinter. Cole then returns to 2015, where Railly has discovered the location of the Night Room.
#5 "The Night Room" - February 13, 2015
Cole and Railly break into the Night Room, finding the Army of the 12 Monkeys has gotten there first after getting its location from Jennifer. The Pallid Man tortures Cole for information on how to break into the Night Room's vault, revealing to Railly that Cole had killed Henri. Later, Cole explains to Railly why he killed Henri and reveals more of his past to her. In 2043, Ramse discovers that Jones had sent other chrononauts into the past before Cole, some of whom had died. He confronts Jones, but grudgingly agrees to go along with her after she promises to protect Cole. In 2015, the Army manages to cut open the vault door, revealing the source of the plague virus: a centuries-old preserved human torso. The Pallid Man tricks Jennifer into deactivating the vault's final failsafe, but Cole and Railly incinerate the viral specimen. Railly is captured by the Army and Cole splinters away, finding himself in an alternate 2043 where the West VII have taken over the temporal facility.
#6 "The Red Forest" - February 20, 2015
Cole learns that in the alternate 2043's history, Railly was killed in 2015, causing drastic changes to the timeline: the plague emerged earlier and was linked to an event called Operation Troy. Cole convinces the leader of the West VII--who, in this timeline, is Ramse--to let Jones send him back in time so he can prevent Railly's death. After being shot in an argument, the dying Jones sends Cole back to 2015, telling him to ask his version of Jones about "sacrifice." In 2015, Cole kidnaps Aaron Marker and forces him to help him rescue Railly. The Pallid Man drugs Railly with a hallucinogen, and an unnamed female member of the Army (Alisen Down) guides her through the hallucinations, saying that she is taking Railly to meet "the Witness." Cole and Aaron track down and free Railly, and Cole splinters in front of Aaron. Aaron apologizes to Railly for not believing her, and they resolve to investigate Operation Troy. Back in 2043, Cole finds his timeline has been restored. He asks Jones about the alternate Jones' last words, and Jones admits that traveling through time is slowly destroying his body and will eventually kill him.
#7 "The Keys" - February 27, 2015
Railly and Marker investigate Operation Troy and the artefact fragments Cole found, and deduce that Markridge Group's M5-10 is being used to kill CIA-leaker Adam Wexler in Chechnya. Cole splinters away and hours later calls Railly from Chechnya, explaining that information she and Marker will give him one week in the future allowed him to take possession of the virus before the Army of the 12 Monkeys. However, mercenaries capture Cole and Wexler opens the case, exposing them all to the virus. As the mercenaries begin dying, they offer to trade Wexler for medical aid and Cole convinces Wexler to open fire on the mercenaries. Before dying, Wexler tells Cole that the Army of the 12 Monkeys were involved in a 1987 yakuza war in Tokyo. Cole calls Railly, allowing the CIA to trace his location to burn the virus with Predator drones, and begs her not to tell him of his fate when they meet in a week. Marker threatens the CIA with exposure to gain his and Railly's release, and Railly follows-through with Cole's wishes to not let him know he's going to his death.
#8 "Yesterday" - March 6, 2015
In 2043, Jones sends Ramse and Whitley to Spearhead, a military colony, to ask for help stabilizing the time machine's energy core. It is revealed that Jones and Whitley once lived at Spearhead, but left after its current leader, Colonel Foster (Xander Berkeley), took power in a violent coup. Foster declines Jones' request, saying he needs the resources to work on a cure for the plague. Ramse encounters Elena, an old flame, and discovers he is the father of her son, Sam. When a failed attempt to retrieve Cole destroys the energy core altogether, Jones personally comes to Spearhead to request the use of their core. Foster eventually agrees on the condition that Jones return to Spearhead to work on the cure. Ramse suggests accepting Foster's offer, but Jones remains convinced that the virus is incurable and resolves to obtain Spearhead's energy core by any means necessary. In 2015, Railly travels to the site of the airstrike to determine if Cole is truly gone. She concludes that he has been erased from the timeline and the plague has been averted. It is revealed that Cole is alive, but stranded in 2017, where the plague is well underway.
#9 "Tomorrow" - March 13, 2015
In 2043, Jones orders her team to seize Spearhead's energy core. She kills Foster, and her group captures the core and reenergizes the time machine, but at the cost of many lives, including Whitley's father. Ramse takes Sam and Elena to safety; the latter claims Foster had a cure for the virus and suggests Jones is lying. Jones is seen destroying a page from Foster's research showing that the 2040 virus was cured. Flashbacks to 2041 reveal how Cole and Ramse met Jones, and how Ramse coerced Cole into joining Project Splinter. In 2017, Cole is brought to the CDC to see a dying Railly. She tells him that a lot happened between them after 2015, and gives him an important address before dying. Jennifer appears, preaching to a group of refugees about "daughters" and an "army." As Cole splinters away, the scratch he made on Railly's watch in 2013 disappears. Back in 2043, he argues with Ramse, who says Jones lied about Foster's cure, and wants to end Project Splinter to ensure his family is not erased from the timeline. Cole retorts that the project is the only way to stop the virus and save Railly, and the two come to blows.
#10 "Divine Move" - March 20, 2015
Cole appears in 2015, shocking Railly and Aaron. He and Railly find the journal of Dr. Oliver Peters, the plague's creator, which points them to 1987 Tokyo. After Cole returns to 2043, Railly tracks down Peters, who was forced to recreate the virus by the Army. He begs Railly to kill him, but she lets him go. The unnamed female Army member (Alisen Down) meets Aaron and asks him what he would do to protect Railly. In 2043, Ramse destroys Jones' research on the history of the plague and steals the drug that allows Cole to splinter. Fleeing, he encounters the Daughters, an all-female sect led by an aged Jennifer. She tells him about the Witness and says Ramse will be a friend to them. In pursuit of Ramse, Jones' men kill Elena. Ramse returns to the temporal facility and tries to blow up the time machine, failing but killing Max. Trapped, he injects himself with the time-travel drug and splinters to 1987 Tokyo. Before sending Cole after Ramse, Jones warns him he must complete the mission this time as his body can only take one more jump before failing; Cole vows to kill his friend should the latter interfere.
#11 "Shonin" - March 27, 2015
In 1987 Tokyo, Cole tries to stop Leland Goines from acquiring the plague virus, but is stabbed, apparently fatally, by Ramse. During his imprisonment for the stabbing, Ramse is contacted by Olivia, the mysterious member of the Army of the 12 Monkeys. Upon his release in 1995, he is initiated into the Army. Flashbacks cover events from the 1990s to 2015, revealing that the Army invested in Markridge's development of the plague virus and that Ramse, believing he killed Cole in 1987, used his knowledge of Cole's actions to help the Army foil all of Cole's attempts to stop the plague and ensure that all events happened as he remembers them from 2043. In 2015, Aaron loses his job and becomes involved with the project that will become Spearhead. He sees that Olivia will direct that project. Jennifer is found by the Army and taken in by Olivia. In 2043, a desperate Jones sends the injured Cole from 1987 to 2015, stranding him in that time. Jones' subordinates abandon her, believing Project Splinter is over. In 2015, Cole gasps to Railly that the identity of the Witness, who has helped the Army remain one step ahead of them, is Ramse.
#12 "Paradox" - April 3, 2015
In 2015, Railly finds the 2015 version of Jones using the address she gave Cole in 2017, and convinces her to help Cole, who is dying from the effects of time travel. To cure him, they need a blood sample from the young 2015 version of Cole, so they bring Cole's father and young Cole to see the adult Cole. Aaron gives the Army Cole's location in exchange for ensuring Railly's safety. When the Army comes for Cole, Cole's father dies defending him. Cole injects himself with the blood sample, causing an explosive temporal paradox that cures him and drives off the Army. Cole, Railly, and Jones leave the young Cole in foster care, and Jones tells Cole that the cure has removed his ability to travel through time. Jennifer stages a hostile takeover of the Markridge Group and installs herself as the new CEO. In 2043, Jones is attempting to rebuild Project Splinter, when an unknown group of 12 individuals, guided by Deacon, assaults the temporal facility.
#13 "Arms of Mine" - April 10, 2015
In 2015, Cole and Railly interrogate Aaron about the Army; after attempting to flee, Aaron is caught in a fire and apparently killed. Acting on information gained from Jennifer, Cole and Railly break into Raritan National Laboratories, which houses the operational time machine, and come face-to-face with Ramse, who plans to return to 2043. It is revealed that Ramse is not the Witness, and both Railly and Ramse are shot. Cole uses the machine to send Railly to 2043, in the hope that Jones will be able to save her, and helps the less-gravely wounded Ramse escape. Olivia readies 12 mysterious newborn infants for the Army's plans, which will come to fruition in 28 years. Jennifer embarks on a plane trip, apparently to spread the plague virus around the world. In 2043, Deacon and the group of 12 he is guiding storm the temporal facility and attempt to seize the time machine. By threatening to blow it up, Jones negotiates the release of her subordinates and then turns the machine over to the group of 12, just as the injured Railly arrives from 2015.

Cole and Railly travel to 1944 to stop two of the Messengers from murdering a scientist, Thomas Crawford. They are unable to prevent Crawford's death, but deduce that the Messengers' real target is his son Tommy Jr. (Erik Knudsen), who, like Jennifer, is a "Primary" with a special connection to time. They manage to get to Tommy first; he addresses both of them by name and says he is fated to be killed by the Messengers. One of the Messengers (Scottie Thompson) takes Cole hostage and tortures him, forcing Railly to surrender Tommy. The Messenger kills Tommy in a ceremonial ritual using bone taken from his remains in the future, triggering an explosive temporal paradox that renders her, Cole, and Railly unconscious and strands the latter two in 1944.

A Messenger holds Victoria hostage, and Ramse kills him and frees her. Slade tells Cole his victims were Primaries whom he killed to stop the Army from sacrificing them and leads Cole to his lair, where he is holding captive a man he claims is the Witness. Cole recognizes the man as a Messenger, not the Witness. Realizing Slade is completely insane, Cole and Ramse kill the Messenger, then Slade. Upon their return to 2044, the temporal anomaly has partially receded. In 2016, Railly sees the Witness, who appears to her in a vision as Aaron, then as Cole.

Eckland sacrifices himself to prevent the time machine from destroying the facility. When Cole and Ramse try to power down the machine, Railly takes Sam hostage and holds him at gunpoint to stop them. Cole and Ramse realize she is under the influence of the Witness, who used her to sabotage the machine. To snap her out of her trance, Cole has Ramse shoot him, knowing she will not let him die. Ramse shuts down the power, but Sam is struck by a backlash of temporal energy and splinters.

With help from the Jennifer of 2020, they break the loop and return to 2044. They explain to Jones that her creation of Project Splinter was fated and attempting to alter that fate caused the loop. To escape it, they saved Hannah and gave her to Jennifer's Daughters to raise, letting Jones believe she was dead so that she would start the project. They then reunite Jones with the adult Hannah (Brooke Williams). Cole tells Railly about his feelings for her, but she rebuffs him, fearing that they stand to lose too much if she reciprocates.

In 2163, Railly is brought before the assembled Army where The Pallid Man hails her as the mother of The Witness.
"12 Monkeys" Season 3 Episodes (2017)
Episode #1: "Mother" - May 19, 2017
After months of searching in 2163, Cole finally finds Titan, just before it travels to 2047. Before he can attempt to rescue Railly, he is splintered away by a future version of himself. Future Cole tells present-day Cole only that he must abandon the search for Railly and look for Jennifer in the early 20th century. After present-day Cole splinters back to 2046, a future version of Railly briefly speaks with future Cole about the path that present-day Cole must travel. In 1917, Jennifer has a vision of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse--four members of the Army, carrying a mysterious box. In 2163, a pregnant Railly is in captivity, being cared for by Magdalena, a member of the Army whose task is to ensure she stays healthy to give birth to the Witness. Railly escapes with the help of a maid, Arianna, and leaps off a ledge, hoping to destroy herself and the Witness. However, Magdalena uses a miniature personal time machine to splinter back a short period in time and warn her past self of Railly's intentions, allowing her to kill Arianna and preempt Railly's suicide attempt. Several months later, Railly gives birth to the Witness.
#2 "Guardians" - May 19, 2017
In 1922, Jennifer enacts one-woman shows in a Paris theater, hoping Jones will notice them in the future in historical records and rescue her. When one of the Horsemen tries to kill her, Cole and Jones splinter in and kill him, then search for the other Horsemen. In 2046, Olivia takes Ramse to an adult Sam, who is near death from an attack by the Witness's men. Sam makes Ramse vow not to undo his death via time travel and to help Olivia kill the Witness; then Ramse euthanizes him. In 2047, Railly watches as her infant son is placed in the mysterious box--his cradle--and splintered to 1922 with the Four Horsemen. In 1922, Cole and Jones kill two of the remaining Horsemen, and Cole comes upon the Witness's cradle; however, the fourth Horseman, Magdalena, splinters back in time to warn her past self of Cole and Jones's intervention, allowing her to reset the timeline and undo everything that happened after Cole and Jones arrived in 1922. Cole, Jones, and Jennifer then splinter back to 2046. Jennifer accepts Cole's offer to stay in 2046. Ramse brings a captive Olivia to the temporal facility, shouting for Cole.
#3 "Enemy" - May 19, 2017
In 2046, Jones has Olivia imprisoned and interrogated. When the latter fails to talk, Jones tortures her by locking her into a time loop where she is splintered repeatedly in and out of existence. Seeing it is not working, Cole instead travels three months back in time with Olivia and confines her in a dungeon reminiscent of the "box" she grew up in. Afterwards, a seemingly broken Olivia agrees to tell them how to find the Witness. In 2047 in Titan, Deacon is brought back from the brink of death by Mallick, one of the Army's enforcers. While he recuperates, he argues with a hallucination of his dead, abusive father about his life, his brother, and the person he became. When he is fully healed, Mallick has him free Railly from the Army. Back in 2046, Jones sends Cole and Ramse to 2007 to kill the Witness. It is revealed that Olivia told Ramse about the Witness's parentage, and that she turned herself in to Project: Splinter in order to manipulate Jones into sending Ramse to 2007 so that he can fulfill his true, secret mission: killing Railly.
#4 "Brothers" - May 19, 2017
In 2046, Jennifer has repeated dreams of a unidentified dying man in a church, and begins sketching her visions. Becoming suspicious of Olivia's motives, she questions the woman about her real reasons in coming to Project: Splinter. In 2007, Ramse maintains the charade that he and Cole are there to kill the Witness, while secretly plotting to kill Railly. After a first failed attempt, Cole inadvertently gives him information on her location. Ramse slips away from Cole and goes to the location, only to find Cole waiting for him, having deliberately misinformed Ramse after deducing his real target. Ramse tells a stunned Cole that the Witness is his and Railly's son. The two argue, and Cole mortally wounds Ramse. Before he dies, Ramse reconciles with Cole and pleads with him not to use time travel to undo his death. In 2047, Railly and Deacon escape from Titan with Mallick's help and make their way back to the temporal facility, finding it totally destroyed. Noticing a sign from the past left for her, Railly unearths time-travel tethers that allow her and Deacon to splinter back to 2046, where they reunite with Cole.
#5 "Causality" - May 20, 2017
In 2046, Cole and Railly decide to keep the identity of their son, Athan, secret from Jones. Jones agrees to Jennifer's elaborate plan to obtain the Word of the Witness by splintering her to 1989 and posing as her own mother at an auction so that Cole and Railly can get access to the Word and make a copy, then return it to its hiding place in order not to disturb the causal chain. The plan goes awry when Jennifer exceeds her bidding limit during the auction, causing Leland Goines to intervene and forcing Deacon to take the bidders hostage. When Cole and Railly fail to find the Word, Jennifer manages to track it down and make a copy, briefly confronting her father and her 1989 self. Upon returning to 2046, Cole and Railly fear the Word will reveal the Witness's true identity, but it is revealed Jennifer deliberately blotted out that portion of the Word when copying it.
#6 "Nature" - May 20, 2017
In 2046, Jennifer's visions intensify, and on Deacon's advice, she begins conversing with them. Following a lead from the Word of the Witness, Cole and Railly splinter to 1953, where they recruit FBI Agent Gale to help them. Gale learns that several locations mentioned in the Word are sites of disasters, and that people in those sites are disappearing. Railly poses as a woman widowed by a mining accident to lure out the Army; a mysterious man (Christopher Lloyd) makes contact and invites her to a revival gathering. Railly tells Gale that she and Cole will be responsible for his death in 1961. At the revival, Cole and Railly learn the mysterious man is a missionary; his wife is the female Messenger, Mantis, and his son is the Pallid Man. There, Athan, in this time a young boy, is revealed to be a Primary. He chooses one of the audience members to be initiated into the Army, then gasses the remaining audience to death. Cole and Railly steal a personal time machine from a Horseman and escape back to 2046. Railly tells Cole she cannot kill their son, even after seeing what he is; Cole replies that he can.

In 2046, Jones learns how to disrupt the personal time machines and prevent the Horsemen from resetting the timeline. She sends a team to 1953 to kill Athan.

The elder Railly concludes its author is deeply uncertain of himself and loathes killing, reassuring Railly Athan is not a monster. She returns to 2046, finding Jones has traveled in time to learn that the Witness is her and Cole's son. Furious at her betrayal, Jones imprisons Railly, who steals the personal time machine and splinters to 1953. In 1953, Jones's team assaults the Army's hideout in pursuit of Athan.

Before Jones can catch her, Jennifer splinters away. In 1899 London, Cole and Railly attend a masked ball which was mentioned in the Word. They find Sebastian but are captured by Jones, Deacon, and Hannah. Cole unsuccessfully tries to convince Jones that Athan can be saved. Jennifer appears and creates a distraction, allowing Cole, Railly, and Sebastian to escape. Sebastian says he and Athan parted in 1879, but gives them the address of Athan’s old home.

When Eliza is killed, he repairs the machine and uses it to prevent her death, but she dies of another cause. Despite hundreds of attempts to avert her death with time travel, she always dies on the same day. Athan splinters to the 2000s to see Railly for advice. Having just lost her first patient, she suggests time is a “thief,” wishing for it to stop forever; Athan then decides to embrace his destiny as the Witness and destroy time so that he can be reunited with Eliza.

It is revealed Olivia had conspired with Mallick to manipulate the members of Project Splinter into finding and killing the Witness. Unexpectedly, Athan splinters in.
