The cliff-hanger episode, guest starring Victor Garber (Titanic), airs Sunday, Feb. 6 at approx. 10 p.m. ET on CTV.

In the shocking season finale “Fault Lines”, Team One grapples with life and death choices and tough decisions that leave viewers wondering if the team will ever be the same again. Dr. Larry Toth (guest star Victor Garber), a military psychologist and ‘team-breaker’, peers inside the heads of Team One individually, exposing deep secrets and faults.

With the fate of the Team hanging in the balance, Ed’s (Hugh Dillon) wife Sophie (Janaya Stephens) goes into labour, Parker’s (Enrico Colantoni) leadership is questioned, Spike (Sergio Di Zio) and Wordy (Michael Cram) stare down the barrel of a life outside the SRU, and Sam (David Paetkau) and Jules (Amy Jo Johnson) must confront whether they’re willing to give up the job for each other. As Parker waits to hear the fate of his team, a devastating call comes into the station, involving one of his own.
