Look, it’s been 84 years since the Timeless finale and we still have no news about renewal. We’re way past ansty, and we’re now at the eat everything in sight stage. The writers have been kind enough to try to keep us engaged (and happy) by providing us with deleted scenes, but we’re out of those now because IT’S BEEN SO DAMN LONG.
Deep breath. Deep breath. In, out. In, out.
So, yes, since we’re now onto script pages (don’t you just love these writers?), it seems like as good a time as any to go over all the deleted scenes we got. For reasons, and science and because it’s our job to keep talking about the show, lest NBC forgets about us.
And, of course, we HAVE to start with:
The Jewel of the Crown
Thank you loyal #Clockblockers for working and tweeting to save our show! Here’s a deleted scene for you as we keep the fight going to #RenewTimeless! @abigailspencer @MattLanter @Lesdoggg @kelly_clarkson @WilliamShatner #Lyatt pic.twitter.com/ssmn6UsgW8

The deleted scene we were all waiting for, and the one that has garnered the most buzz. Spencer and Lanter have electric chemistry, and in a season filled with angst, it’s no wonder people have watched and re-watched this scene over and over again.
Today’s deleted scene was cut to make time & also because we worried it advanced the #Lyatt romance too quickly before events of the next two eps. Sweet scene near end of #201 of Wyatt w/an exhausted Lucy after safely getting her back home. #RenewTimeless pic.twitter.com/g8t0zawKrk

Actually, we’re posting two deleted scenes today, but they would have aired back to back. These are from #203, our Hollywoodland ep. Originally the sleeper’s dad stayed in the story, but we had to cut this sequence for time. #RenewTimeless pic.twitter.com/I63PFWqXSe

Today’s deleted scene: Not going to lie, not our juiciest. But Wyatt lovers will get some good brooding Wyatt. From #201, stung by the disappearance of Lucy, this was going to serve as our transition to the Mason Industries explosion flashback. Cut for time. #RenewTimeless pic.twitter.com/FZrheBg4Pq

Oh, the Lyatt of it all. The writers leaned hard on their chosen OTP and gave us, arguably five scenes that advanced the relationship in some way or another, out of 11 deleted scenes. Now, if they’d only given us more than three episodes of happiness! But that’s what Season 3 is for, isn’t it? (YOU HEAR ME NBC?)
Today’s deleted scene: We chose to cut this for A) Time and B) We felt it worked better to keep it a mystery longer what happened between Lucy and Flynn the night before. Our actors nailed it though. Enjoy! Keep tweeting to #RenewTimeless! pic.twitter.com/tfy32hx7Ak

Depending on what goggles you’re using, this scene can be interpreted many different ways. It seems clear, however, that within the context of the story the writes were telling in Season 2, it’s there to set up Wyatt seeing Lucy walk out of Flynn’s room. It also does a good job of setting up Flynn as something other than the antagonist he’s been for most of this show’s run.
Here’s today’s deleted scene. From our Salem episode. We wanted to show our new Time Team stealing clothes, but @malcolmbarrett‘s performance made the scene unusable (actually we had to cut for time and wanted to open on a more serious tone with Proctor’s Ledge). #RenewTimeless pic.twitter.com/wdufEoXkGh

Our last deleted scene: From the Salem episode: Was supposed to end our Teaser. Jiya and company watch as the new Time Team with Flynn disappears, with Jiya’s visions of Rufus killing a pilgrim still haunting her. Cut for time. Missing some Lifeboat Takeoff VFX. #RenewTimeless pic.twitter.com/OvcokQejVV

We just didn’t get enough Rufus in these deleted scenes. But is there ever enough Rufus? The answer to that is probably no. But here are a couple of team-specific scenes, and if there’s one thing we love about Timeless, it’s the team-as-family aspect.
The Crazy Family
Thanks #ClockBlockers for your continued support and advocacy for the #RenewTimeless movement. Here’s today’s deleted scene as your reward. Keep tweeting and supporting the show! pic.twitter.com/HieGWwGYSA

This was a nice backstory scene, and one we kinda wish had stayed in. Lucy as a Rittenhouse descendant is both creepy and it adds a certain layer to every interaction with Emma.
Here’s the original scene of #208 where Lucy and Jiya meet the person in charge of the investigation for the FBI. Cut for time and we were worried a little bit, with recent events, it might be a little distracting during an emotional moment. #RenewTimeless pic.twitter.com/vACb4NslLB

Way to hit 500 retweets so quickly! Today’s deleted scene is from “The Day Reagan Was Shot” ep and was (unfortunately) cut for time. It shows young Agent Christopher (@KarenDavid) contemplating a big question. Enjoy! #RenewTimeless pic.twitter.com/dbe768lvWP

Episode 2×08 was one of our favorite episodes this season, and any extra-time with the beautiful Karen David, who did an awesome job at portraying the younger version of our bunker mom, is something we want to see!
The Bad Guys
Today’s deleted scene from #207: After Wyatt destroyed Rittenhouse HQ in the previous episode, this scene was showing Emma (@Wersching) setting up the new HQ before being summoned by Nicholas. Cut for time. #RenewTimeless pic.twitter.com/BxfbGmCRrA

Emma became a more compelling character in Season 2, to the point that, right now, we’re looking forward to any little tidbit the writers want to throw our way about her. See, NBC, more reason to give us a Season 3 – we’re just dying to see Emma as the head of Rittenhouse!
Timeless aired Sundays at 10/9c on NBC. It has yet to be renewed for Season 3.
