For those who watched last week’s episode of Timeless, we learned a lot about Rittenhouse’s operations and history (read my review to refresh your memory). One of the pieces of information was that Rittenhouse was founded in 1778. If it was founded in America, we were in the midst of the Revolutionary War at that point. It was also the year that President Lincoln’s father was born, which is a strange coincidence considering that the Assassination of Lincoln was the second episode of this season.
Here is the episode summary for “Stranded” from the official site: The team faces a true test of time when they follow Flynn to 1754. The team chases Garcia Flynn (Goran Višnjic) to 1754, but after he reveals his true intentions, they’re forced to scramble through hostile territory. Now, if they want to survive, they’ll need to learn to trust each other. Meanwhile, Agent Christopher (Sakina Jaffrey) quietly investigates Connor Mason (Paterson Joseph), and Jiya (Claudia Doumit) has a hunch that Rufus (Malcolm Barrett) might be resourceful enough to open a line of communication with the present. Also starring Abigail Spencer and Matt Lanter. Guest starring Chad Rook, Hector Hugo and John Getz.
For the non-history majors reading, 1754 had a few historical events but the one that rings my bell as being the conflict is the beginning of the French-Indian War. Unless the trio can come up with impressive French accents, they are going to end up on the wrong side of the French guns and Indian arrows. Plus, as the title says, the trio are going to be stranded after what appears to be a member of Flynn’s team shooting up the time machine.
Hopefully Jiya and Rufus can get in touch with each other to get a rescue!
My biggest question is about that blood on Wyatt’s neck scarf thingie – I hope it’s just a flesh wound and not something serious. Ever since “The Alamo”, Wyatt has jumped up to being my bae on this show – sorry Rufus – so I’m just a bit protective of him now. I guess we will have to wait and see. “Stranded” airs on Monday, November 21st at 10/9pm CST.
