Timeless premiered last night, and it was a good one. The show is one of our Top 5 pilots of the fall.
The photos and synopsis for the second episode have been released and we’re traveling back to one of the most important moments in history, “The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln.”
THE TEAM CAN SAVE THE LIFE OF ONE OF HISTORY’S GREATEST MEN — Lucy (Abigail Spencer), Wyatt (Matt Lanter), and Rufus (Malcolm Barrett) chase terrorist Garcia Flynn (Goran Višnjic) to the night of Lincoln’s assassination, where they’re horrified to learn that Flynn’s linked up with history’s most notorious assassin, John Wilkes Booth (guest star Kelly Blatz). Putting aside a tragedy of her own, Lucy speculates that Flynn intends to send the fragile nation into chaos by making a bad thing worse, and a debate rages among the team: should they alter history if it means changing it for the better? Also starring Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey and Claudia Doumit. Guest starring Neal Bledsoe, Michael Krebs, Terry Lewis and Lucia Frangione.
“The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln,” airs October 10th.
