‘Timeless’ Heads to the 80’s in “Karma Chameleon”

Oh, Timeless, how I love you so. The time-traveling drama is heading back in time to the 80’s where Wyatt and Rufus go on a rogue mission to save Wyatt’s wife and stop her killer from being born. He’s been talking about this for quite some time and even though Lucy has advised him not to on multiple occasions, why would she get to save her sister and he can’t save his wife?! I mean, it’s a great question. But also, how is his wife going to affect the future? But how does the Hindenburg change the fact that Lucy’s sister wasn’t born and her mother is healthy? We’ll never know. Or will we? God, I hope so.

Meanwhile, Lucy has to find a way to stop them from doing something catastrophic but how can she when they left in the lifeboat without her? She has to cover for them as long as she can before Agent Christopher (Sakina Jaffrey) does something about it and Anthony Bruhl (Matt Frewer) makes a crazy confession.

Also, what’s happening with Rufus and Jiya? I can’t believe Rufus would tell Rittenhouse that he refuses to work with them and help them on future missions when he KNOWS that they’ll just replace him with someone else. And that someone else is none other than his now girlfriend and co-workerm Jiya! I mean, he knew she wanted to learn to pilot the lifeboat, what did he think would happen?

Would you risk the future and history for a loved one? Make sure to tune in and let us know what you think!

Timeless airs Mondays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
