It took some time (about a month), but the team is back together.
All that was required was a Lifeboat trip back to 1893, during a seminal event in American history on Timeless Season 1 Episode 11.
A frustrated Flynn abducted Lucy back on Timeless Season 1 Episode 10, after she thwarted his attempt to kill young John Rittenhouse, in order to stop the organization literally in its infancy.
Apparently, Flynn had forgotten about the only rule set in stone on this series: No going back where you've already been.
He stupidly goes back for another stab at killing the young Rittenhouse, but (surprise) history has changed and he can't get anywhere near him.
So the only thing that's protected Lucy and her team so far is that Flynn is convinced that they're meant to work together someday. But now he's started to doubt what's written in her journal.
Maybe we're not meant to be a team after all, »

With the help of the pause button and a pot of strong coffee, we’ve picked through Sherlock’s series four finale The Final Problem to seek out the nerdy references and painstakingly added background details. (You can find the same for the previous episodes here and here.)
1. Starting with the obvious, The Final Problem is of course the title of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s 1893 short story in which Sherlock Holmes and Professor Moriarty appear to tumble to their deaths in the Reichenbach Falls. Andrew Scott’s Moriarty references the title several times in series two finale The Reichenbach Fall. »

Whether they're about violent British prisoners, Los Angeles models or Bangkok gangsters, Nicolas Winding Refn's movies are reliably low on dialogue and high on saturated, sometimes unnerving images. That style is likely to continue in Refn's next movie, which is described as an action thriller about a mute spy on a mission in Japan.

The Danish director's been saying for over a year now that he wanted to make some kind of spy movie, and although some of his projects have inevitably struggled to bear fruit in the past - his planned remake of Logan's Run »
With The Neon Demon now (almost completely) exorcised from Danish auteur Nicolas Winding Refn‘s system, he is already deep into preparing his next project. On the docket for the director is The Avenging Silence, which will apparently sate Refn’s desire to make a “big extravagant action film.” Refn also said over the summer it is loosely inspired by “Dr. No,” Ian Fleming‘s classic Bond novel, as well as William Burrough‘s “Nova Express.” An extended synopsis has now been released for the feature, which hopefully will make its way to screens by 2018.
While he has dipped into action in sections of Drive, Bronson and The Pusher Trilogy, The Avenging Silence sounds like a big step for Refn into pure spy/action genre fare. However, fans of Refn’s stylistic choices should rest assured as he has already stated his protagonist won’t say much. This time, that »

Last year, director Nicolas Winding Refn’s latest film “The Neon Demon,” about an aspiring model (Elle Fanning) whose beauty and youth generate intense jealousy within the industry, opened to polarizing reviews and a poor box office performance, grossing a little over $3 million from a $7 million budget. But the director clearly isn’t discouraged from future projects and is set to produce a remake of the giallo film “What Have You Done To Solange?” and expressed interest in a Batgirl movie. But his next project will be large scale crime drama entitled “The Amazing Silence,” which he described on his Twitter as “Ian Fleming + William Burroughs + N W R = The Avenging Silence.”

Nicolas Winding Refn tends to play it close to the vest when it comes to his upcoming movies, but the details he’s dropped so far about “The Avenging Silence” have been tantalizing. Bond veterans Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (“Casino Royale,” “Quantum Of Solace,” “Skyfall,” “Spectre“) are writing the script for the film, with the director saying early last year that the project was borne out of his desire to make “a big extravagant action film.” Then over the summer, the filmmaker teased that the movie would be inspired by Ian Fleming‘s seminal Bond book “Dr.
