Timeless season 2 episode 8: Rittenhouse targets Agent Christopher

Timeless season 2 episode 8What’s coming on Timeless season 2 episode 8 is a story that is different from any other that we’ve seen so far this season. For most of this season, we’ve seen Rittenhouse install sleeper agents within the past in order to completely change the future. This time around, though, they seem to be going specifically after a member of the Time Team in Agent Christopher. They feel like going after her will, in turn, keep there from being the same sort of threat within the present.

The more that you think about it, the more we wonder why Rittenhouse hasn’t just done this before. While we imagine that there are some characters who could in theory be replaced, we’re not sure that anyone would be anywhere close to as effective as the precise combination of people who have been assembled for Agent Christopher and her team already.

Below, the Timeless season 2 episode 8 synopsis below offers up a little bit more in the way of insight as to just what is coming up next:

05/06/2018 (10:00PM – 11:00PM) (Sunday) : The Time Team travels back to 1981 Washington D.C. on the day President Reagan was shot, only to discover that the Sleeper’s target isn’t the President – but a young rookie police office – none other than Agent Christopher (Sakina Jaffrey), who brought the time team together and kept the Lifeboat from getting into Rittenhouse’s hands. The Time Team must save Agent Christopher’s life and prevent her from making a mistake that set her on a different path that would forever change her own future, the future of the team — and the future of the world. TV-14 D, V

by the end of this episode, our hope is that we will have seen a really fantastic episode that puts Agent Christopher front and center just like what we saw with the Connor Mason story earlier this year where he traveled through time. Hopefully, there will also be a few other surprises within this episode when it comes to Jessica, Wyatt’s wife who may just happen to also be a part of Rittenhouse in some shape or form. While it’s not clear if she is per se a part of them, signs do point towards her having a larger role to play in the story to come.
