BWW Recap: Chat LIVE as We Recap TIMELESS 1/23 at 10pm ET
The gang is clearly growing restless after last week's World's Fair incident (you know, the one where H.H. Holmes almost murdered everyone and Houdini was hitting on Lucy). Who can blame them? Rebellion has been hinted at for quite some time now, and that's (finally) starting to come to fruition. Rufus is done helping Rittenhouse, and he doesn't care who knows it.
But what about Flynn? A few episodes back, when we first learned about Rittenhouse's history, we started to think that maybe Flynn isn't as bad as we all thought he was initially. Now, though, it seems like everyone's forgotten that. Whatever happened to "the enemy of my enemy is my friend?"
Still, it'll be fun to see how Lucy, Wyatt, and Rufus take to Jesse James. If I had to guess, I'd say that he's probably going to hit on Lucy, too. Get in line, Jesse. Get in line.
Join me right here tonight at 10 PM ET as I live recap tonight's new episode of TIMELESS!
10:03: Wyatt, starting the episode off strong, looking for closure.
"Not unless I had a time machine." Let's see if this inmate really would change things if he could.
10:05: Poor Lucy. She's going to be plagued by these missing sister thoughts for the rest of her life. Unless, of course, she can fix the timeline.
Mason's making Jiya the new Lifeboat pilot when Rufus is gone in six months, and he's not happy about that. At all. And, as Mason reminds him, a second pilot makes Rufus expendable.
10:08: In a strange twist, Robert Ford is dead. Flynn saved Jesse James. One outlaw saving another. Let's see if either man is truly as bad as everyone thinks.
10:13: Jesse James would make a deal with Flynn (even though he thinks Flynn is stupid for being patriotic).
10:17: Rufus's face when he sees the Lone Ranger is absolutely priceless and it should be cherished.
10:23: Jiya's literally a day into her training and already she's starting to notice the sketchiness of some of Mason's practices.
10:28: Jesse James and Flynn are an interesting duo. Not quite as good as the Lone Ranger and Tonto, but still entertaining nonetheless.
Also, let's take a moment to pause and enjoy the scenery. Those mountains are beautiful.
10:37: Meeting Jessica's killer has clearly been wreaking havoc on Wyatt's insides. Flynn may have helped Wyatt out by passing on his name, but this idea of going back in time to prevent the prisoner from murdering anyone is a bit extreme.
Like Rufus says, how far are we willing to go?
10:40: Oh, boy. A noose, skulls, this place looks super inviting!
Woah. Whoever this lady is, she definitely isn't from that time period. I may not know a lot about history, but I'm pretty sure frontiersmen (or frontierswomen) didn't have Nokias.
10:50: So that's what happens when you give Jesse James a machine gun!
Oh shoot, so Lucy killed Jesse James! Whaaaat?!
10:55: The Lone Ranger reward money is going to Grant's family. Good call, Lucy, good call.
The Lone Ranger is without a doubt my favorite character in this episode, and possibly my favorite character in the entire series. He's really the only character we see who is truly good, who has convictions and sticks with them. Good on ya, Lone Ranger.
10:57: Why does Flynn want another driver, especially Anna? I'm guessing we'll find out.
11:00: Wyatt's still focused: his goal is to save his wife. But can he convince anyone else to help him?
We've learned a bit about Wyatt's motives this episode, but there's still not been a whole ton of development about Flynn, which is weird considering he's the main villain of the entire series. Hopefully that'll change over the remaining few episodes.
