I feel like I should probably just copy and paste a paragraph on how amazing Timeless is every week because I honestly feel like a broken record. Just like the past seven episodes, Timeless once again hit it right out of the park in an episode that hit us through the heart and killed us with too many emotions.
I probably sound like a broken record, but Timeless really does get better and better each week. Tonight’s episode in particular was a fantastic example about everything that makes this show work. The beat of the episode was outstanding; the writing, the performance, everything was absolutely incredible and I can’t understand why NBC hasn’t renewed this show yet.
I know, Lyatt fans. I panicked too, you’re not alone. When the episode ended, my first reaction was a big fat “NO. THEY DID NOT DO THAT. THEY DIDN’T. NO.” Fangirlish’s Lizzie (@lizziethat) and I spent the next couple of hours after we watched the screener talking in circles about why they would do that; why would they suddenly set up Lucy and Flynn when this entire season has been about Lyatt?
Lucy Preston is too good and pure for this world. That’s all I have to say about this episode.
Timeless is the kind of show that sneaks up on you. When season 1 first started, I had already heard about how amazing the pilot was from a few friends who had already screened the episode, so I knew I was in for a treat. But I had no idea how incredible this journey I was embarking on was going to be — that this show would be this wonderful miracle that it is.
