» » Timeless The Watergate Tape (2016–2018)

Short summary

As the team goes after Flynn in 1972, tensions rise among the team as secrets are revealed.

When Rufus and Lucy go to the Black Liberation Army office, Rufus tells her to wait outside and avoid eye contact with anyone. In "Timeless: Pilot (2016)", she tells him the same thing upon seeing bar patrons staring at them after arriving in 1937.

The Twin Towers in Rosslyn Virginia are visible in the view from Capitol Hill. They weren't completed until 1980.

This is the first time we hear Rufus speak his full name, Rufus Carlin, and he does so in a payphone booth. This is very probably a reference to George Carlin, who plays the character Rufus in the time travel movie Bill and Teds Excellent Adventure. In that movie, the time machine is a payphone booth.

When Rufus enters the D.C. branch of the Black Liberation Army, he uses the alias "Kanye" after pop singer Kanye West.

The character "Rittenhouse Agent", played by John Getz (I), gets a name, "Benjamin Cahill", in this episode.
