Did Timeless rock your world on Sunday night?

"Hollywood Land," an episode set in the suitably glamorous and romantic setting of 1940's Los Angeles, saw Wyatt and Lucy finally getting together (and then some!) while shacking up at Hedy Lamarr's place, during their quest to track down Orson Welles' lost film footage. (Now there's a sentence you never imagined you'd one day read.)

However, Timeless fans weren't celebrating this couple's union for very long, as a final twist in a mostly playful hour saw the return of Wyatt's until-just-literally-now dead wife, Jessica, from the grave. 

Next week, Wyatt attempts to get to the bottom of Jessica's shock resurrection while Lucy, Rufus and Flynn chase the Mothership to Salem, 1692, at the height of the witch trials. 

There they must prevent the execution of a headstrong young woman (guest star Sofia Vassilieva) who, as it turns out, is mother to one of the most consequential Americans of all time – the yet to be born Benjamin Franklin. You know, that guy who said it was ok to criticise your government?

We’ve seen the episode a little early, thanks to our friends at NBC, and have a number of teasers to share with you below. As always, we avoid major plot-point reveals that would spoil your enjoyment of the live episode. That said, the spoilerphobes among you may want to exercise some caution.

The Puritan Chainsaw Massacre

With Wyatt temporarily out of the picture (Don’t worry, Matt Lanter still gets plenty of screentime), Lucy and Rufus are left in somewhat of a pickle when needs dictate they travel to Salem, circa 1692. 

“A woman and a black man should travel with someone who has more … access,” a frustrated Lucy points out to Agent Christopher. Of course, the only remaining white dude just so happens to be Garcia Flynn, who is practically giddy at the prospect of working with the team, despite the fact no one trusts him. (Seriously, he gets all the best lines this week.)

In the end, Flynn, gets to travel — but on one condition. He must leave his firearm behind.

Of course, this sees him spending the entire episode desperately searching for a weapon with which he can drive his point home. When he does eventually find one, it’s pretty much a case of setting the fox among the Puritan chickens.

Look out, Salem!
