Timeless s1 ep 7

We’re dropped straight into the action, with Lucy, Wyatt, and Rufus chasing Flynn in 1754 during the French and Indian War. About which I know, well, not much at all. However, there doesn’t seem to be any reason, Rittenhouse-related or otherwise, for Flynn to be there, except to sabotage the LTM and disappear, thus leaving the gang stranded forever. Unless, that is, Rufus can bodge together a repair, while also leaving a message buried in a bottle for Mason to dig up in the present day. And, apart from some vicious Frenchmen and forgiving Shawnees, that’s kind of it.

As it turns out, then, this episode isn’t about altering (or not) history; it’s about the intra-team relationships. The boys are bickering, and Lucy gets drawn into it: recording, journal, sister, wife, etc. Meantime Rufus’s message-in-a-bottle, which provides clues as to how they might be rescued, has been more or less destroyed by the time Mason digs it up; but Jiya works it out anyway, because she and Rufus are totally into each other, which is actually quite sweet. They will kiss before the end of this watchable but underwhelming episode.
