TIMELESS Scoop: Lucy Makes a Personal Stand in “The Salem Witch Hunt”
BY Alan Mann
Published 4 years ago
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.

A Self Fulfilling Prophecy?
It’s a week for coming clean, apparently. The hour will see a concerned Jiya admitting to Rufus that her recent visions are in fact premonitions.
(As you may recall from previous episodes, Jiya is worried because her last vision saw Rufus taking an unarmed man’s life, and being pretty cut up about it afterwards.)
Jiya does all she can to forewarn Rufus about the event, in the hope he can change the outcome.
But while Rufus is initially skeptical that Jiya’s visions point to a predetermined outcome, he is given pause for thought when he finds it difficult to escape his fate.
