1754 - September, Pennsylvania

The team run through the woods with French soldiers in pursuit. A French officer, Lt. Louis Coulon, steps out ahead of them, gun drawn. The next morning, the French discuss what to do with the  “British spies.” Louis, leaves his son Jacques in charge of the prisoners and rides off. Jacques examines Wyatt’s gun, and the trio argue among themselves.

Lucy says that they have to work together, but Wyatt points out that Rufus is recoding them for Rittenhouse. He taunts Jacques with an insult he learns from Lucy, Jacques grabs a gun and prepares to shoot him. Wyatt works free of his bonds, knocks Jacques down, and fights another soldier who charges over.

After a brief struggle, Wyatt ends up shooting Jacques. Once Wyatt frees his teammates, they head back to the lifeboat. Wyatt gets the recorder from Rufus and throws it into a nearby stream, and tells Rufus to claim that he lost it. Lucy tries to work out what Flynn is doing, and Wyatt figures that Flynn has already done whatever he came to do.

They hear voices up ahead as they approach the lifeboat, and see Flynn’s men attaching explosives to the vehicle. They move clear and prepare to trigger the charge, and Wyatt shoots one of them. The other one opens fire and then shoots at the side of ship, blasting open a hole. Rufus runs over while the man runs off for the mothership.

They chase after Flynn’s man but he gets into the mothership and it departs before they can stop it. The team realizes that they’re trapped in 1754.

Louis returns to the camp and finds Jacques dead, and vows to find the “spies.”

Back at the lifeboat, Wyatt figures that Flynn’s plan was to strand them in 1754. As she searches the dead terrorist, Lucy tries to get him to talk to her. He points out that she cut a deal with Denise to try and get her sister back, while his wife stays dead.

Lucy insists that she’s fighting for Amy because Wyatt told her to find something to fight for. Rufus reports that there is serious damage to the circuitry and they need a couple of capacitators. Lucy asks what he needs to build one, and Rufus says that he needs a forge and a blacksmith.. She figures that some of the things he needs are at Fort Duquesne, and Wyatt points out that the French soldiers are from there.

Rufus warns that he’ll have to use the wiring from the nav systems and they won’t survive, and remembers the protocol.

Rufus has Wyatt dig a hole a specific distance from the lifeboat, writes a message, and puts it in a non-biodegradable bottle. He admits that the system has never been tried before, and if it fails then they die violently.

The team head to the fort and Wyatt stops Rufus from eating some poisoned berries. Rufus  admits that he hates the outdoors and figures that’s why they have Wyatt. Wyatt asks who he has, and points out that he’s just one guy. If he doesn’t have someone that he can count on then they’re not going to survive. Wyatt walks off and after a moment, the others follow him.

Louis and his men ride nearby and follow the trail that the team has left. Wyatt leads Rufus ˆ and Lucy through a nearby water to cover their tracks. When they emerge from the other side, they find a dead French soldier. Wyatt removes his uniform and realizes that the body is still warm.

Shawnee Indians surround them, arrows drawn. The Indians take the trio to their village and tie them up. Lucy warns her teammates that the Shawnees aren’t friendly to the British, and they’re waiting for their chief. Wyatt warns that he can’t escape and figures that they’ll be there a while.

Rufus starts talking about Chocodiles, and Wyatt and Lucy start chuckling. He then says that he would give anything to tell Jiya how he really feels. Rufus says that they went on a date once and it was awkward, and they haven’t talked about it since.

Lucy talks about how her mother read biographies for kids to her when she was a child, and she thought she’d have time to read them to her children.

Wyatt talks about how Jessica wanted a little boy, and he’d tell her that they had all the time in the world. Lucy apologizes for saying that Jessica’s death was meant to be, and tells Wyatt that he deserves to get her back. He says that she deserves to get Amy back.

The Indians come in with their chief, Nonhelema. She speaks English that she learned from missionaries, and Lucy recognizes the name. She introduces herself as Dr. Quinn and claims that they’ve come to treat the sick. Nonhelema doesn’t believe her and describes how the French came, built forests, and killed their men.

She tells her men to kill Wyatt and Lucy, but spares Rufus because she realizes that he was forced to be there. They cut him free, and Rufus says that they’re not from anywhere around there. He says that Lucy and Wyatt are his friends, and they’re not supposed to be there and just want to go home. Rufus says that if she kills them then he’ll have to kill him, too. After conferring with her brother, Nonhelema figures that if Rufus is willing to die for his friends then they must not be from around there. She spares their lives for Rufus’ honor, but warns that if he’s proven wrong then she will spare no one.

The next day, the trio goes back to the soldier’s corpse to get his uniform. Lucy thanks Rufus for what he did, while Wyatt puts on the soldier’s uniform. He says that he and Lucy will stall while Rufus gets the parts that they need, and says that he has the fact that he doesn’t speak French covered.

At the fort, Rufus and Lucy bring Wyatt in claiming that he’s a wounded soldier, and Lucy does the talking in French. Rufus then moves off and gathers the bottles and metal that he needs to build capacitators.

Rufus finds a forge and goes to work hammering the tin and copper into foil strips.

Meanwhile, the camp surgeon comes over to check on Wyatt. Lucy says that he’s a nurse and he’s fine, but the surgeon doesn’t trust her and insists on examining Wyatt personally. He says that Wyatt has too much blood and plans to inject him with mercury to get his humors in balance. Lucy tells Wyatt to knock the man out, and they join up with Rufus... just as Louis rides into the fort. The guard confirms that the people that he’s looking for are in the fort, and the soldier begins searching for the team.

Wyatt leads Lucy and Rufus over to the wall, moves a wagon into position, and helps them up and over. They return to the lifeboat and Rufus hooks up his makeshift capacitators while Wyatt patches the hole and Lucy stands watch.

Rufus warns that without the navigation ˆ system, they could land anywhere, and they need Jiya and Mason to help them land if they got his note.

Lucy and Wyatt figure that they’re going to die either way so they might as well risk the faulty navigation system. The French soldiers close in and the team gets into the lifeboat. They seal it just as Louis and his men ride up, and the soldiers open fire on the lifeboat. The engine doesn’t start up, and Rufus fixes the wiring.

The lifeboat departs as the soldiers stare in shock.

1780 - September 25th, West Point
(‘The Capture of Benedict Arnold’)

Once the team land, the trio goes to Benedict’s house. As they enter the yard, British soldiers surround them. Washington steps out and figures that they’re traitor, and Lucy curtsies to him.

The soldiers take the trio inside, and Flynn comes in and holds a gun on them. Wyatt goes for his gun, and Flynn says that he has a man in the next room and if shots go off, the man will kill Washington. He tells them that he needs their help, and to follow his lead when Washington comes in or he’ll have Washington hang them for treason. Washington comes in and Wyatt hides his gun before Washington can see it. Lucy quickly agrees that they’re who Flynn says that they are: spies in the Culper Ring.

Flynn is posing as Austin Roe, the renowned Prussian spy. Washington explains that Flynn warned him about Benedict’s betrayal, but Benedict still escaped. He then tells them that they’re heading into Redcoat territory and capture Benedict, claiming to be traitors as well. Flynn assures him that there’s no problem and Lucy agrees.

Once they’re alone, Lucy explains that Washington and Roe never met. Flynn says that Roe is dead in a ditch, and figures that Lucy will know how to find benedict. He explains that he’s going interrogate him about the key he took from Bonnie and Clyde. It opened a clock and revealed a scroll. Flynn gives it to Lucy, who discovers that it’s a letter Benedict wrote about a Rittenhouse meeting.

Flynn says that Benedict was a founding member of Rittenhouse, and if they destroy the organization then they’ll end it before it starts. Rufus says that they can’t talk about it, and Flynn says that he knows about the recorder. If the trio helps him then he’ll hand over the keys to the mothership. Either they keep chasing him or they end it once and for all. When they hesitate, Flynn hands over pages from Lucy’s future journal and says that she can see in her own words how bad Rittenhouse is.

Wyatt refuses to help him, and Flynn says that if they help him then he’ll give him the name of Wyatt’s wife’s killer. There was blood on the scene and Flynn knows who it belongs to.

The trio goes outside to discuss what to do. Rufus realizes that Lucy and Wyatt are considering helping Flynn. Lucy reads the journal and confirms that Rittenhouse was involved with some of the greatest tragedies in American history.

However, they’re supposed to protect history, even the bad stuff. Flynn comes up and says that there’s a British garrison up the road, and they’re going to defect. To make things look convincing, the Colonials chase the group toward the British garrison.

The Redcoats let them in and they ask for a meeting with Benedict. Lucy says that General Clinton sent them, and Flynn claims that their loyalists and have covert information about Washington’s troop movements. Benedict hasn’t received word from Clinton, and Lucy whispers to him that Clinton can be a bit erratic. She then claims that Wyatt fought with Benedict before under Colonel Lamb. Benedict vaguely remembers well, and Benedict takes them to Earl Cornwallis. Lucy says that they prefer to talk with Benedict alone because he inspired them.

Flynn has enough, draws his gun, and kills Cornwallis and his guard. Wyatt subdues Benedict when he tries to run, and Flynn dismisses the change as nothing. Once they tie Benedict up, Flynn tells Benedict that they’re time travelers from the future.

Benedict assumes that Flynn is insane, and Flynn says that it doesn’t matter because they need to know about Rittenhouse. When the captive says that he doesn’t know about them, Flynn shows him the letter from the clock. In it Benedict says that he’s meeting with someone who is recruiting great men.

Lucy says that she knows all about Benedict’s life, and how he was passed over for promotion to Major General and Washington did nothing. Because of that, Benedict betrayed his former friend. Benedict insists that Washington betrayed him, but Rittenhouse is going to give him the future that he deserves and no one can stop them.

They realize that Rittenhouse is one man, and Benedict says that the man he’s talking with is David Rittenhouse. Flynn says that the fact it was one man isn’t in the journal, and tells benedict to introduce them to David. When Benedict wonders why he would do that, Flynn tells him that Washington is holding Peggy. If they don’t return with Benedict in three days, Washington will execute Peggy.

Out in the hallway, the trio discusses what to do. Rufus says that he’s in, figuring that all they have to do is kill one guy. He points out that Wyatt has done it before and so has he, and if killing David will free his family then he’s in. Wyatt agrees as well, and Lucy warns that history will change if they kill David. When she hesitates, Wyatt says that it’s saving one man to save hundreds of lives. He figures that Lucy believes in helping people.

Flynn and Benedict come down, and Wyatt asks if Lucy is ready. After a moment, she nods in agreement. The group takes a carriage back toward Colonial lines, and they stop to water the horses.

Lucy notices that Flynn is comfortable with the horses, and he explains that he wanted to be a cowboy when he grew up. He says that the journal said that they would work together, but Lucy doesn’t want to hear it. She asks what Flynn will do if they kill David, and Flynn says that he’ll go back to his family because they’ll be alive again. After that, he’ll say goodbye and walk away forever. Flynn admits that he’s become something horrible chasing down Rittenhouse, and he won’t bring that into his home.

The group continues on and arrives at the Rittenhouse manor. Benedict suggests to Flynn that just the two of them go in, and Flynn says that they’ll leave Rufus behind.

After doing so, they approach the manor and the guard lets them in. The group goes inside and David’s son John greets them. There are clocks on the walls, and John explains that David built them and is fascinated with time. While they wait, John sits down to try and work on his clock, and Lucy approaches him. She assures him that he’s doing a good job, and John talks about how peasants can’t choose their own path.

The boy says that the Rittenhouses will choose their path because no one else is suitable. He talks about how control is best administered from the shadows, and peasants want the illusion of a voice. Lucy says that what John is describing is tyranny disguised as democracy, and John insists that his father says there is no other choice. She asks him what he believes, and John admits that no one has ever asked him that before.

David comes in and greets Benedict. John says that they want to join their cause, and David points out that Benedict has ever brought him recruits before. He asks to take a better look at them, and John escorts Lucy to David.

David checks her body and asks if she has reproduced, and then nods to his guards. They raise their guns and David says that they’re there to kill him. He’s noticed that Lucy is sweating and Wyatt is holding a hand near the pistol in his jacket. However, he tells Lucy that they’ll find a good use for her in his bed chamber.

Rufus approaches the manor, feigning illness, and knocks out the guard when he comes over.

David examines Wyatt’s pistol and says that he’s never seen one like it. Benedict insists that he just wants to serve the cause, and David tells him to shut up. David talks about Benedict’s flaws, and dismisses him as an idiot. Benedict insists that it’s a friend, but David figures that he can’t trust a traitor and shoots him dead with Wyatt’s gun. Once Benedict is dead, David says that he’ll figure out where the gun came from eventually. He then tells John to watch because it’s important that he see what will happen next.

The guards force Wyatt and Flynn to their knees, and John begs his father not to kill them in front of him. David says that he has to see the world as it really is, and John agrees. The guards take Lucy to David’s bedchamber, and he prepares to shoot.

However, Rufus arrives and fire, and Wyatt and Flynn jump the guards while David crawls away. Working together, Flynn and Wyatt take out the men while Lucy runs back. David is hiding behind a chair, and Flynn aims his gun at him. When David says that what he is doing will outlive all of them, Flynn shoots him dead. He then realizes that John escaped.

Flynn says that they need to kill John, and the others object. After a moment, Flynn leaves the room, locking the door behind him. By the time they break through, Flynn is gone. Rufus and Wyatt go after Flynn while Lucy looks for John.

Flynn goes into the woods and finds John. The boy begs for his life, but Flynn aims the pistol. He hesitates and then breaks into tears. He turns and starts to walk away, but then turns and aims. Lucy is there blocking his shot, and says that she won’t let Flynn kill a child.

She reminds Flynn that he wanted to be a cowboy when he was a boy, and people change. Lucy tells him that he has a choice to be something different. She begs Flynn not to do it, saying that he can still be a father... but not if he kills John. Flynn shoves her out of the way and realizes that John has run off. Furious, Flynn drags Lucy away.

Rufus and Wyatt hear Lucy yelling and go after her. Flynn takes Lucy to the mothership and takes her inside. Wyatt and Rufus get there just as the mothership departs.
