While Alice was upset with Elliot for abandoning them in their time of need, Kat seemed initially more welcoming. However, a kiss between Kat and Elliot revealed that there was still lingering hurt between them.

Despite their complicated history, Kat and Alice had agreed to stop time traveling and live in the present. However, the discovery of a painting from 1814 changed everything.
