Fellow Travelers episode 4: A brief recap
During Christmas, Hawk discovered that someone reported him for being a communist and having illegitimate liaisons with a man. Later that night, Hawk paid a visit to Morton for dinner just to show McLeod that he was heterosexual and was going to marry his fiance, Lucy. The next day, Hawk was examined by his interrogator, and surprisingly, he passed the test.
However, much to his fear, he had to appear for a second time for a polygraph test. During the Christmas celebration at his office, Hawk discovered that Addison was the person who reported him to the officials. At night, Hawk visited Tim to celebrate with him and, while leaving, handed over a package to pass on to Schine.
During the polygraph test, Hawk successfully managed to get through it, as he practiced and learned how to counter the device and get hold of his emotions a day before.
Despite his persistent efforts, Roy couldn’t manage to save Schine, as even McCarthy was losing hope over him. Soon, after Schine received the confidential package carrying the evidence against McCarthy of being involved in Homosexuality, he saw the silver lining.
Back to the present, after a heated argument with time, Hawk left the house. After he returned, he was shocked to learn that Tim had been hospitalized due to a mild seizure.
What to expect from Fellow Travelers episode 5 (speculative)
Fellow Travelers episode 5 is titled “Promise You Won’t Write,” which likely suggests that the upcoming installment of the story will be intensely emotional. The episode will also determine the fate of Tim as his health keeps worsening each day.
It is yet to be revealed what Cohn has in mind with the latest information. However, given his dependency on McCarthy, he is likely to blackmail him and use him as a pawn to stop Schine from being drafted.
