Clockblockers are counting down the days until we see how the Time Team saves Rufus. Ever since the epic and gut-wrenching cliffhanger in the ‘Timeless’ Season 2 finale, loyal and hardworking fans have put big bucks, sweat, and tears into saving their beloved show. They most recently advertised the two-hour movie on a massive billboard during the televised Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Times Square.
We have the schedule for the billboards! We will be running on 128 (McDs) and 130 (Disney Store) from midnight – 5pm and again from 9pm – midnight eastern tomorrow. @TimelessSPTV @TheTimelessRoom pic.twitter.com/FkhfrqCkcm

Cast members and fans flocked to the site, taking photos and spreading the Gospel of Timeless. With each passing day, new scooplets drop, teasing the highly anticipated Christmas movie that is guaranteed to answer some of our biggest questions.
Consider this your go-to page for all the latest updates. I’ll add news as it is released. For now, we have a compilation of cast interviews and episode photos that we can eagerly scour over for juicy details. Buckle your seatbelts!
Time Team Teasers
The ‘Timeless’ cast has us hanging on every word. They are clearly emotional after filming the movie and their teasers are giving us all the feels. Here are the highlights I’ve gathered from everything published by mainstream media outlets:
- Goran Visnjic was moved to tears and is very happy with Flynn’s storyline. He assures Garcy fans that they’ll be satisfied.
- Malcolm Barrett is basking in all the fan love and believes we’re in for some feel-good Christmas cheer.
- Although we assume Rufus is saved, showrunner Shawn Ryan keeps fans guessing by raising suspicions about alternate timelines and possible flashback sequences.
- Abigail Spencer said Lucy is not present in the final moments of the movie. Others later revealed that no one from the Time Team is in the final shot. Knowing co-creator Eric Kripke, he’s probably leaving the door open for a bigger picture narrative that will blow audiences away and allow ‘Timeless’ to continue.
- The story will span across three centuries and two continents. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly we have narrowed that clue down to the year 1950 in North Korea. Previously released images also revealed their journey to the Gold Rush.
- Update 12/7: According to the latest issue of TVGuide, the Time Team will visit Brasil. This must mean we’ll see Lucy and Flynn’s highly anticipated journal hand-off. Right????
A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words
Time to take a deep dive into the episode photos.
“The Miracle of Christmas Part I”
Rufus is alive and the Time Team has traveled to the Wild West during the 1840s Gold Rush. Is this a flashback sequence? Does it take place after they save Rufus? Are they on another mission to stop Rittenhouse?
Moving on to “The Miracle of Christmas Part II”
The next series of images are full of some surprises. Agent Christopher is with Lucy’s dad. Emma seems to be cooperating with the Time Team. Judging by overall appearances, two different time periods seem to be represented. Now, for a closer look…
Pointing out the obvious: Where is Flynn??? Is he in Part II? He better be! Also, there are no signs of Jessica, but she must be addressed in some form. Right??? Ending on a high note: Squee!!!! Lyatt is engaged! (Okay, so there is no official confirmation that they are engaged. We may just be jumping to conclusions. Still…shippers will squee!)
Here is NBC’s synopsis:
“THE MIRACLE OF CHRISTMAS PART I/II”
12/20/2018 (08:00PM – 10:00PM) (Thursday) : Series Finale
As Christmas arrives in the Bunker, the Time Team is inspired by a visit from their future selves to find a way to try to save Rufus (Malcolm Barrett). But when the Mothership jumps to 1848 California, they’re forced to put those plans on hold and chase Rittenhouse back to the Gold Rush, where they encounter one of the era’s most dangerous villains. Then chasing the Mothership to Korea in the winter of 1950, our team helps a stranded, pregnant refugee attempt to escape a tragic fate. Stuck with no way out, our team faces its toughest challenge yet, and in the process, come to terms with their feelings for each other. Also starring Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Goran Višnjic, Sakina Jaffrey, Paterson Joseph and Claudia Doumit.
