Especially since he has found Lucy. It would be great, for instance, to have Connor Paterson Joseph or Jiya Claudia Doumit in the field; Jiya because that character has so much potential that is as yet untapped, and Connor, because he would be completely out of his depth. Her motivations, like those of many of the accusers, are today unclear. Rufus comes up for a bunch of excuses for what she might have seen. Scarface does, only to get flattened by a runaway carriage — a plot twist I definitely did not see coming.
We can all agree that Wyatt just reacted, right? Back at the bunker, they are waiting for the lifeboat to arrive back. In 2018, by Wyatt's reckoning, Jessica had been dead six years. The publishing schedule for our recaps may be a little bit slower in the coming weeks as we strive to track down screener copies of future episodes. Find out her mother is also one of the heads of said evil organization? There they must prevent the execution of a headstrong young woman who, it turns out, is mother to one of the most consequential Americans of all time — the yet to be born Benjamin Franklin. So from Jessica's perspective, Wyatt's basically been replaced by a stranger. It is very impressive that is consistently able to select historical settings that compliment the character arcs each episode is exploring. By Jessica's reckoning, though, Wyatt had been a terrible husband, possibly an alcoholic, possibly cheating or at least acting in a way to make Jessica paranoid about cheating.
Rufus and, to a lesser extent Lucy, are not really sure if Flynn is trustworthy. But with a growing family at home, Abiah likely had her hands full and would likely have been too busy to make the roughly 20-mile trek from Boston to Salem Village to protest witch hangings. Furthermore it adds some details which make the stories even more exciting. Wyatt seems torn between wanting to assist poor, battered Lucy, and his wife, whose mind has just been blown. Yes, Jessica is alive again. No one else remembers them or mourns them; they're just completely, utterly gone. In episode discussion threads, you do not need to spoiler tag your comments.
Panning back to the future — on the same day Wyatt Matt Lanter finds out Jessica Tonya Glanz is no longer dead, she also serves him divorce papers. The American playwright presented the 1953 play as a parable about the dangers of McCarthyism, when the government ostracized suspected Communists who often lost their jobs or were even imprisoned. Did they just drive their car over there, park it outside, and climb on down seamlessly? By the following year, she gave birth to the first of 10 children two would have together. Wyatt recuses himself from time travel while while he tries to rebuild his life with Jessica. Carol turns up and accuses Lucy of being a witch.
Needless to say, the two of them have a little work to do. The team discovers that Rittenhouse took the mothership to San Diego in 1980 for an hour while they were in 1941 in Hollywood. I loved the look Jiya shoots Rufus as she confirms — colonial times! If this is where shows are supposed to have their lull, Timeless missed that memo. This makes me think of two possible theories. See the sidebar for further information on tagging comment spoilers. Lucy ends up in the cell with the other women sentenced to die. For the first time, we get to find out that despite all efforts to change the premonition, part of it still came true.
As a viewer, you never really know what he might do to accomplish his goal of ending Rittenhouse which adds a nice bit of tension to his interactions with the other characters. Jessica figures that Wyatt was either on a military m… Guest Cast. New Items will be listed at the top of the article. Then said mother tried to break her out, but only if she would come back with her in the Mothership and take her rightful place as Rittenhouse royalty. This of course brings up a number of questions about free will and destiny that the writers will surely expand on in the coming episodes. Lucy believes that Bathsheba was feuding with the Corey family over a property line dispute, but that seems to be a plotline borrowed from The Crucible; it's unclear how based in history that is. It is a nice moment for the show and the character, and I am glad the writers took the time to include it.
Denise agrees reluctantly but firmly puts Lucy in charge. After all, he did get that burn when they went to 1955. In the present at Gilroy's, Wyatt asks Jessica what she's doing there. In this case, the show takes a moment to address the reasons the Puritan women this episode features are targets of a literal witch-hunt. The mothership has already jumped. Years later, he would go on to be involved in a controversy involving the Franklins, specifically Ben's older brother James, publisher of the New England Courant. There is a super-awkward homecoming as Lucy sees Jessica and Wyatt sees Garcia.
For those of us not in control of such things, Timeless is delivering week after week without fail. Carol comes to Lucy in the jail. Then her own mother accused her of witchcraft, sentencing her to death. If you were thought different, you were frightening and therefore must be a witch. And if that is really the case, then things are even worse than we previously thought. And that begs the question — is everything she is seeing something that is bound to happen no matter what? From the perspective of the people in the Lifeboat, they could come back to a present in which their loved ones never existed i. An injured Lucy, rattled Rufus, and forever badass Flynn make it back to the Lifeboat, where Flynn gently buckles Lucy into her seat, just as Wyatt always does.
Or that her return will cause Wyatt to quit the Time Team? Sewall backs slowly away—and is promptly run over by a convenient speeding carriage. The most famous modern depiction of the events that transpired in Salem is Arthur Miller's The Crucible, a stunning work of literature but one that took some significant historical liberties. Unfortunately for all our memories, it looks like he was right. How many bunk beds do they have down there, any way?! Whichever is the real reason, and it could easily be both, this is a slightly different take than many time travel stories, as the majority of the time no pun intended , the preservation of an existing timeline is paramount. So to sum up, Lucy had her heart broken, was betrayed by her mother again, was nearly hanged in Salem and got stabbed. She goes back to her work without responding, and finally tells Wyatt that he's ignored her texts for the last two weeks.
When Wyatt finally picks up the phone and tells her about Jessica… God, my heart broke in a million little pieces for her. Once again, Lucy is demonstrating a more ruthless outlook on defeating Rittenhouse. This opens a philosophical debate about whether those events are pre-determined, or by him knowing about them, causes them to occur. In 1689, the freshly widowed Josiah Franklin, who already had at least five living children, married Abiah at the Old South Church in Boston. Will the Bunker be gaining Jessica as their latest roommate? Lucy is more concerned about Abiah — and the possible erasing of Benjamin Franklin than she is for herself! But what better way to break the Time Team by bringing her back? Wyatt would either live happily ever after with her or he would lead her straight to the bunker — which he stupidly did.
