‘Timeless’ Episode Guide (Oct. 10): Abraham Lincoln’s Assassination Investigated

“The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln” (10/10/16) – Lucy (Abigail Spencer), Wyatt (Matt Lanter), and Rufus (Malcolm Barrett) chase terrorist Garcia Flynn (Goran Višnjic) to the night of Lincoln’s assassination, where they’re horrified to learn that Flynn’s linked up with history’s most notorious assassin, John Wilkes Booth (guest star Kelly Blatz).

Putting aside a tragedy of her own, Lucy speculates that Flynn intends to send the fragile nation into chaos by making a bad thing worse, and a debate rages among the team: should they alter history if it means changing it for the better?

Guest starring in this episode are Neal Bledsoe, Michael Krebs, Terry Lewis and Lucia Frangione.

From Eric Kripke (“Revolution,” “Supernatural”), Shawn Ryan (“The Shield”) and the producers of “The Blacklist” comes this thrilling action-adventure series in which a mysterious criminal steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past. Our only hope is an unexpected team: Rufus (Malcolm Barrett), a scientist; Wyatt (Matt Lanter), a soldier; and Lucy (Abigail Spencer), a history professor, all of who must use the machine’s prototype to travel back in time to critical events.

While they must make every effort not to affect the past themselves, they must also stay one step ahead of Flynn (Goran Višnjić), a dangerous fugitive. But can this handpicked team uncover the mystery behind it all and end his destruction before it’s too late?

The cast includes Abigail Spencer (“Rectify,” “True Detective,” and “Suits”), Matt Lanter (“90210,” “Star-Crossed,” and “Commander in Chief”), Malcolm Barrett (“The Hurt Locker,” “Dear White People,” and “Better Off Ted”), Goran Višnjić (“ER,” “Extant” and “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”), Paterson Joseph (“The Beach,” “In the Name of the Father,” and “Aeon Flux”), Sakina Jaffrey (“House of Cards,” “Mr. Robot,” and “The Mindy Project”) and Claudia Doumit (“Faking It,” “Scandal,” and “New Girl”).

Shawn Ryan and Eric Kripke are the co-showrunners, writers and executive producers. John Davis (“The Blacklist”), John Fox (“The Blacklist”) and Marney Hochman (“The Chicago Code”) also executive produce.

“Timeless” is a production of Sony Pictures Television, Davis Entertainment, MiddKid Productions and Kripke Enterprises.
