What if I don't want to go home?
Yet, I mean.
Why the change of heart?
You ever play football?
Yeah, I didn't think so.
the best feeling I ever got from being on the field
wasn't when I made a great play,
or we won some game.
It was when one of my teammates took a tackle for me,
and I knew they were gonna make sure I was safe,
that nobody got to me.
Watching all of you rush back to the ship,
even those two knuckleheads,
to take on Chronos?
Made me feel the same way.
I like being part of a team, man.
What's the point of us even giving this a second thought?
Rip has already seen the future.
He knows exactly what's in store for each of us.
Might as well have stayed dead,
'cause the world doesn't need any of us.
You're just a lost assassin.
You're just a pair of good-for-nothing criminals.
I can live with that.
Well, I can't.
Can't live with somebody putting a cap on my destiny.
Spent my whole life working to be something greater
by becoming something smaller.
Then some guy comes along and tells me
that being the Atom is as insignificant
as an actual Atom.
That's not what he said.
Rip said that in his future
but this mission is about changing the future.
I mean, if we have the power to change the world,
don't you think we have the power to change our own fate?
For better or for worse.
That's a very good point.
What do you think, Gideon?
I calculate a less than 6% likelihood
that they decide to go on with the mission.
I meant about the repairs.
And there has been another unfortunate consequence
of Chronos's attack.
- Care to hear about it? - Not really.
Our son--or, our son from our previous life.
It's all too confusing.
I'm very sorry.
Actually, you don't get the blame for this.
This was my fault.
If I hadn't insisted on bringing him back here,
he might have died peacefully, in his sleep maybe.
Don't torture yourself with recriminations.
One of the great lessons of time travel
is that many things cannot be changed.
Time wants to happen.
Chronos, even Vandal, won't be the only enemy we face.
Very often, it will be time itself.
Whether it wants to happen or not,
we're gonna change time,
erase Savage's future,
and earn our rightful place in history.
Dr. Palmer is correct.
We may not be legends in your time, Captain,
but we are going to decide our own fates.
I don't give a damn about being a legend,
as long as we end Savage once and for all.
I can get down with that.
And our malcontents?
I like killing people.
So how do we find this guy?
Professor Boardman had a theory about that.
I've already had Gideon plot a course.
You know what this is?
An instrument to make this world a better place.
History teaches us that the cause of humanity
is only advanced through strife.
There's no Renaissance without the Dark Ages.
Man had no interest in splitting the atom
until World War II.
I'm just trying to make this world a better place,
one war at a time.
