Episode five starts with Faraday remembering how he departed from his family before being sent to earth. The scene quickly moves back to London where Faraday and Justin Falls are having an argument about Justin involving her family as it's vital to the mission. Justin disagrees with him and packs to head out and meet with her family.

Faraday heads to Origen. He asks the team to show him Newton's original designs and that leads him to a research lab. He's reminded of Newton's words about wanting to steal the company back. He instantly gets working with the team to build what Thomas Newton had planned in the 1980s. While Faraday is working on his mission, Justin goes back home to visit her daughter and dad.
