Timeless “The War to End All Wars” Season 2 Premiere Review
After an enthralling recap of the previous season, we start right in the middle of World War I in France where things aren’t entirely as they should be as a captain pulls out a cell phone device amid the gunfire. Rufus and Wyatt can’t find Lucy when all of a sudden Mason Industries explodes, and we flash forward to six weeks later, and Rufus, Wyatt, Conor, Jiya and Agent Christopher are in a warehouse. They’ve been working to fix the ship to get it in working order and hopefully do something to find Lucy. Conor struggles to come to grips with what has happened and find his purpose again. Through his struggles, they may just find a way to get back in the game.
Lucy, unaware that anyone is alive or had survived the explosion at Mason Industries, is with her mother and Emma working for Rittenhouse in WWI France. Their mission is supposed to help Rittenhouse in the future. Emma continues to be unsure of Lucy’s loyalty and puts it to the test many times. In a turn of events, Lucy and her mother come face to face with one of the greatest scientific minds of all time and puts them in more danger than they should’ve. Back at Mason Industries, they discover what they believe Rittenhouse is doing and need help from a very unlikely source. The episode ends just as the last season did, with a HUGE revelation.
The episode is spent wondering and hoping if our team will ever be reunited and trying to figure out what exactly Rittenhouse wants with what they’ve found in WWI and how that is going to impact history as we know it. The team is back and better than ever. Rufus is the usual humor in the episode with great jokes about sneakers and porn, while Wyatt provides us with some engaging action and fight scenes. What is, so spectacular about Timeless that has continued into the second season is its ability to mix science and history with heart and making it a story about people and not just facts. The season two premiere of Timeless is gratifying and will undoubtedly satisfy the craving we’ve all had in this long long, long hiatus.
