Timeless: The Miracle of Christmas Part 2 - A Thrilling Finale for a Beloved Series
Timeless is a science fiction television series that premiered on NBC in 2016 and ran for two seasons before being canceled. The show follows a team of time travelers who try to stop a mysterious organization called Rittenhouse from changing history for their own benefit. The series finale, titled \"The Miracle of Christmas Part 2\", aired on December 20, 2018, and wrapped up the storylines of the main characters and their enemies.
In this episode, the team travels to the California Gold Rush in 1848 and the Korean War in 1950 to rescue their friend Rufus, who was killed by Rittenhouse in the previous episode. They also have to deal with the consequences of their actions in the past, such as Lucy's journal that was given to Flynn by his future self, Wyatt's relationship with his wife Jessica and his feelings for Lucy, and Jiya's visions of her own death. Along the way, they encounter historical figures such as Joaquin Murrieta, Benjamin Cahill, and Young-Hee, and face off against Rittenhouse's leader Emma Whitmore and her sleeper agents.
The episode was well-received by fans and critics alike, who praised the emotional performances of the cast, the satisfying resolution of the plot twists, and the homage to the show's history and themes. The episode also featured some surprises, such as Flynn's sacrifice to save Rufus, Lucy's reunion with her sister Amy, and Wyatt and Lucy's happy ending with their children. The episode ended with a hopeful message that history is not fixed and that everyone can make a difference.Timeless was created by Eric Kripke and Shawn Ryan, who also served as executive producers along with John Davis, John Fox, Marney Hochman, and Neil Marshall. The show starred Abigail Spencer as Lucy Preston, a history professor and the leader of the time team; Matt Lanter as Wyatt Logan, a Delta Force soldier and the team's protector; Malcolm Barrett as Rufus Carlin, a programmer and the pilot of the time machine; Paterson Joseph as Connor Mason, the head of Mason Industries and the creator of the time machines; Sakina Jaffrey as Denise Christopher, the Homeland Security agent in charge of the time team; Claudia Doumit as Jiya Marri, a talented programmer and Rufus' girlfriend; and Goran Visnjic as Garcia Flynn, a former NSA asset turned terrorist who later joins the team.
The show featured two types of time machines: the \"Mothership\", a large and sophisticated device that was stolen by Flynn and his associates; and the \"Lifeboat\", a smaller and less advanced prototype that was used by the team to chase them. The show also explored the concept of Rittenhouse, a secret society that has been manipulating history for centuries and that has members in various positions of power. The show's title refers to the idea that some events and people are \"timeless\", meaning that they are essential for the course of history and cannot be changed without causing serious consequences.
Timeless was praised for its blend of action, adventure, drama, humor, and romance, as well as for its historical accuracy and diversity. The show also had a loyal fan base, known as \"Clockblockers\", who campaigned for the show's renewal after it was canceled twice by NBC. The show's finale was a gift to the fans who supported the show throughout its run and gave them a satisfying closure to their favorite characters' journeys. aa16f39245
