Jiya figures out a way to track the stolen ship in the modern day, but they are too late to catch Garcia Flynn before he heads back to Nazi Germany. In this next episode of Timeless, the gang has to travel back to Nazi Germany on December 7th, 1944. The Nazis are getting ready to launch a bomb into Belgium, and the group thinks that Garcia is going to try to get the atomic bomb on there. In an attempt to reach the right contact, Lucy tells them that she’s heard they can find some Allied help at a tavern. They attempt to find this help when they run into a Nazi Captain. This man just happens to work for MS 8 and is none other than the creator of James Bond, Ian Fleming.
After they devise a plan and get into the Castle Varlar, they must try to stop the Nazis from setting off the bomb and also protect Von Braun, a person of great historical significance.
The group faces many moral dilemmas that are addressed in this episode. They talk about why and how they can continue to do this, how you can keep lying to the ones you love and whether or not someone who created a bomb that killed so many should be saved. They find out that Garcia Flynn is not there for the reasons they previously thought and must rework their plan to escape a Nazi Party and save Von Braun at the same time.
At the end of the episode, we find out what Anthony and Garcia Flynn wanted with the plutonium core and how they plan to use it. The group comes back and talks about Bond movies, Rufus and Lucy both stand up for what they believe, and we will see how that plays out in the next few episodes.
As usual, the set design and costumes are incredibly meticulous. The scenes in the castle are some of the most breathtakingly beautiful set designs. It is just phenomenal what they do with it. The visual effects are improving in each episode, and the show seems to be finding its groove with pacing, acting, visual effects, etc. I can’t wait for the next journey to The Alamo.
