HEY, GUYS! I got a copy of an early draft of the #Timeless Pilot! Interesting changes! Amy was April. Connor Mason was Mason Lark. Lucy is teaching at UCLA. The auditorium is the Carol Preston Auditorium. Lucy was having an affair with the guy who tells her she didn't get tenure.
She kisses him before he tells her why she was rejected. The committee didn't like her all-too-true curriculum, namely, (in addition to "Jumbo"), "George Washington grew cannabis, James Buchanan was probably the 1st gay president, & Catherine the Great loved porn."
The Lucy & Wyatt meet-cute is described as: "Wyatt finally opens his eyes, looks at her. She's not what he expected to see. A flirtatious smile. But Lucy just ignores it." Wyatt after seeing the LB: "You said this (thing) rides 3. Me, the Professor. . . who's playing Gilligan?"
Agent C takes Wyatt aside & tells him that his mission is to kill Flynn, even if Lucy, Rufus, & he, himself, have to be sacrificed to do that! (How could you, Bunker Mama?!) Hence the moment when Wyatt shoots Flynn while he's holding Lucy as a shield.
After Wyatt shoots Flynn's henchman in the hangar, he wants Rufus to help him with the corpse. Rufus refuses with: "Maybe dead bodies are, like, a regular Thursday for you, but not for me." The walkie-talkie really is a walkie-talkie, & Rufus makes it into a tracking device.
It leads them into a high school back in town. Flynn watches them from a phone booth & makes a call. Rufus opens a closet door, & a janitor's body falls out. The cops barrel in & arrest them for his murder. On Hindenburg, piano is playing "Popeye,the Sailor" not "Big, Bad Wolf."
Rufus's distraction speech: "I hope you live to see Brown Vs Board of Education, the March from Selma. The Presidential Election in 2008! I hope you hear every good modern song ever, see Michael Jordan dunk! 'Cause the future is not on your side, you racist pile of crap!"
Bra scene described thusly:"Wyatt can't help but stare. Lucy catches him. Just a touch of sexuality--as she hands the bra to Wyatt." Wish we saw this one: "Lucy glances at Wyatt as he snags his Glock back. He grins. She smiles back. Perhaps even a moment of respect between them."
To distract the baggage guy so they can get on the H-burg, they open a bunch of suitcases & scatter the clothes. He retrieves them as they scramble on board. Bomb is in the Purser's Cabin, not in the Galley. Wyatt defuses the bomb before the henchman bursts in. Fight ensues.
As they tumble out of the burning airship, Rufus spots Anthony Bruhl & tries to get him to come over. Anthony looks at him sadly & melts into the crowd. After Wyatt shoots Flynn, Flynn runs away to a warehouse marked,"Sherwin Metal Reclaiming." Where've we heard that name before?
Wyatt watches them escape in the MS. The very end has the vision of ponytailed Future Lucy watching Carol & Lucy thru the window of the Preston house. Oh, & they all live in Los Angeles, not in the SanFran/Oakland area. So, what do you think, Clockblockers?
So sorry, forgot this the 1st time around. There's a scene where April (Amy) is in an ambulance with a dying Carol rushing to the hosp. She's on her cell, frantically trying to contact Lucy, begging her to call back. Think of the scene this could lead to: #Timeless #SaveTimeless
The drs. & nurses are scurrying trying to bring Carol around. Finally, they give up & she's pronounced dead. The main dr. goes out to tell April (Amy) but she's disappeared. Orderly goes in Carol's room to take her to the morgue & is shocked to find . . . #Timeless #SaveTimeless
. . . a very lively Carol asking for her clothes to go home. Orderly calls for the drs. They rush in & stare in disbelief. Would've been great, but it was never written, nor was the ambulance scene in the episode we saw. #Timeless #SaveTimeless
