The Time Team travels back to 1981 Washington D.C. on the day President Reagan was shot, only to discover that the Sleeper's target isn't the President - but a young rookie police officer - none other than Agent Christopher, who brought the time team together and kept the Lifeboat from getting into Rittenhouse's hands. The Time Team must save Agent Christopher's life and prevent her from making a mistake that set her on a different path that would forever change her own future, the future of the team -- and the future of the world.

Did You Know?


While explaining changing history to Denise, Lucy uses the choice of turning left or right as an example of where history can change. Doctor Who: Turn Left (2008) was a 4th season installment of Doctor Who in which Donna Noble was made to turn right at an intersection when the original history had her turning left. The consequences cascading from this change led to the thermonuclear destruction of London and the collapse of the British economy, as well as numerous unchecked extraterrestrial invasions. History was restored when Donna was sent into her own past and succeeded in causing herself to turn left after all. See more »

Lucy Preston: You won't, I promise. Here, take this.
[hands her the thumb drive containing info on her future family]

Just like so many recent series that have so much potential but losing it, this one is losing me.

I have the series rated "7", but might reduce it after this vapid episode.

I'm imagining the writers agreeing on a social agenda issue, then writing the script around that. That's all this episode was, nothing to do with the main plot.

Hollywood writers - can you give us a break, already?! Every day, almost every Hollywood series!

---> Just give us entertainment without your social messages! <---
