Timeless Season 1 Episode 12
The Assassination of Jesse James
Wyatt visits with the man that Flynn said killed his wife. Lucy dreams about her missing sister. Jiya is being trained to replace Rufus in six months. The trio follows Flynn back to 1872, on the day when Jessie James is about to be killed by his men. Flynn saves him. Flynn hires James to serve him as a guide to find the person he's seeking. The trio recruits Bass Reeves, the black marshal that the Lone Ranger is based upon. Reeves agrees as long as they capture, not kill, the outlaws. Reeves' fellow lawman, the Indian Grant Johnson, joins them. Flynn and James find themselves surrounded by Indians. The trio and Reeves come upon a group of dead Indians. All three of the trio express doubts about what they're doing. Flynn's target is Emma Whitmore, the first Lifeboat pilot, now living in a log cabin in Indian territory. Jiya has recovered the old mission tapes, including those including Whitmore. Flynn ends up giving James his assault rifle, to get rid of him, as he and Whitmore leave. Rufus discovers Whitmore's old uniform. James opens fire on the posse in the cabin, and Grant gets killed. Wyatt slips out and wings James, but Reeves wants to arrest him instead, before Lucy shoots James. Reeves rides off, disgusted. Mason threatens Jiya for hacking into the mission logs. Wyatt tries to recruit Rufus to steal the time machine and help save his wife.
