Is Timeless season 2 episode 3 the best one of the entire season? At the moment, it’s starting to feel as though that could be the case. This was an episode stuffed full of drama, but beyond that there was one of the most romantic moments of the entire season — though it may have been wiped away by the big twist at the end of the episode.
In the closing minutes, we learned for the first time that due to changes in the timeline, Wyatt’s once-dead wife Jessica is no longer dead. He got a text message during the episode and following that, he took off from their super-secret base in order to see her for the first time.
Now, we’ve got ourselves a love triangle and a rather devastating one at that. Lucy and Wyatt were together in an intimate way for the first time back in Old Hollywood, and it seemed as though that connection was carrying through to the present. (After that romantic scene for the two of them, how could you not root for the two parties to be together?) Yet, it was after that Wyatt first learned the news when it comes to Jessica; ironically, it was right when he stopped trying to bring her back that it actually happened. The ripple effects of time are an interesting thing when it comes to the series.
As for the case itself, it was a fun little romp in order to preserve an old version of the classic Citizen Kane that was previously stolen by a Rittenhouse sleeper agent. The team was successful in their quest, but beyond that what we learned historically within this episode is that actress Hedy Lamarr was so much more than just a performer — she was a scientist! She and Rufus bonded in this episode (at least after Rufus tried to pass himself off as Langston Hughes giving a performance of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song), and over time he encouraged her to retain the patent for one of her greatest inventions — which laid the foundation for many other things and eventually made her one of the wealthiest people on Earth.
Could we complain about the Time Team making so many moves intentionally that could change history? Certainly, but most of them are well-intentioned and out of a desire to actually make history better. With Hedy, this is absolutely the cast given that there is so much to admire about who she is as a person and what she has contributed to the world as a whole.
Oh, and we should also mention that Garcia Flynn broke out of prison, a necessary evil for some of the team due to his information on Rittenhouse.
Timeless season 2 episode 3 was virtually everything that you could want from this show, at least in terms of delivering on some of the things that you could possibly want from it. There was a little bit of action, and to go along with that you had some opportunities to see some romance, history, and also a twist that really changed the game for the remainder of the season.
