NBC's Timeless rounds out its ten episode second season on May 13 with two back to back installments that take the team from South Carolina in 1863 to Chinatown in 1888 for an explosive, heartbreaking and jaw dropping conclusion, that should the series continue to a third season, will change the landscape of the narrative dramatically.
The action kicks off when Rittenhouse attempts to alter the outcome of the American Civil War by providing one of their own with a modern day military encyclopedia (and a cheeseburger) outlining all key campaigns in the war. In the wrong hands, Union spy and military leader, Harriet Tubman – AKA “The General," would be unable to persuade freed plantation slaves to join her cause, placing the outcome of the war in jeopardy.
Meanwhile in hour two, Jiya finds herself trapped in San Francisco's Chinatown in 1888, not only unable, but unwilling to return home.
We've seen the finale episodes a little early, thanks to our friends at NBC, and have a number of teasers to share with you. As always, we never reveal major plot points or character developments that might ruin your enjoyment of the live episodes.
That said, so what you will read below falls into the ‘teaser’ rather than the ‘spoiler’ category. However, we suggest a modicum of caution proportionate to your feelings on spoilers in general.

Births, Deaths and Everything in Between
Honestly, we haven’t enjoyed a finale like this in a long time. It seems Timeless is determined to go out with a ending that gives fans everything they could possibly want.
Expect to have your heart wrenched by multiple deaths.
Expect to have the rug pulled from under you with enormous plot developments.
Expect to see the team finally learning what it means to be a family.
Expect bust ups, break ups, get togethers, and dust ups as each character is put through a personal wringer that not only tests their mettle, but forges their resolve.
A word to the wise: Don’t go searching for big plot spoilers online from less scrupulous fan sites because it will ruin the final moments for you if you do.
