Trivia

This episode takes place in Baltimore, Maryland on February 21, 1861. See more »

Goofs

Most of John Brown's men had been killed or captured before 1861. The few who remained at large would have been too weakened and demoralized to take part in a high-profile act of terrorism that could easily have led to their capture, especially when war was already almost inevitable. See more »

Tony flees with Jeremiah and his brother Matthew while Doug is arrested by Pinkerton's men.

When Jeremiah discovers that Lincoln is at the depot with Doug, he decides to blow up the spot; Tony tries to save his partner by is tied up to a chair in the brother's house.

"The Death Trap" is another flawed but engaging episode of "The Time Tunnel". Doug and Tony are involved in a doomed conspiracy to kill the President Lincoln. Maybe the greatest curiosity or attraction is the young Tom Skerrit in the role of Matthew Gebhardt. My vote is seven.
