Ready to remember the Alamo? “Timeless” is headed to Texas in Monday’s (Oct. 31) episode, to the infamous Battle of the Alamo.
The Alamo was one of the bloodiest fights in the war for Texas independence, and Lucy (Abigail Spencer), Wyatt (Matt Lanter) and Rufus (Malcolm Barrett) will arrive in 1836 right in the middle of the siege of the famous fort. Once again, the team will have to sit on their hands if they want to keep history intact, even knowing that everyone inside the fort is fated to die.
In this exclusive sneak peek, we get to meet the famous Davy Crockett (Jeff Kober), and Lucy and Rufus are understandably starstruck. Who wouldn’t be after hearing Crockett tell the story of his one-handed bear wrestling?
However, if Flynn (Goran Visnjic) has his way and changes history again, the results could be catastrophic.
Outrage at the bloody slaughter of the Texas troops in the Alamo invigorated the remaining Texan forces and the war for their independence was won about a month later. If the events of the Alamo are changed, Texas may never secede from Mexico and subsequently never join the United States. Who knows what kind of damage that could do to the present timeline?
We just hope no one accidentally changes the rallying moment when William B. Travis drew a line in the sand, choosing to die fighting rather than surrender to the Mexican troops. Can you imagine a world without the saying “draw a line in the sand”?
“Timeless” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
