Episode Title: Public Enemy No. 1
Original Air Date: February 13, 2017
Episode Number: 1×15
Lucy, Wyatt, and Rufus decide to take matters into their own hands, but are caught off guard when Flynn lands in 1931 Chicago to call in a favor from notorious gangster Al Capone. Hot on Flynn’s trail, our heroes try to enlist the help of famed lawman, Elliot Ness, in pursuit of Al Capone after Flynn aids him in avoiding justice. A clue leads the team to a crucial revelation about Rittenhouse.
Things sure are ramping up now and I am beyond excited for the finale next week (nooooo). NBC better renew this show because I think this show kept on getting better and better as the season progressed and it never looked back. The show started out a bit shaky, but with a lot of promise and then it got better after every episode. The cast has great chemistry together and I have grown to care for the three leads, Jiya, and Agent Christopher. I would be so very disappointed if we don’t get a second season.
Anyway, this episode was another great one with Team Time hijacking the Lifeboat and becoming fugitives in the process just so they can get Lucy back before they have to destroy it. Of course, Flynn ruins this by jumping to 1931 to hook up with Al Capone just so he can glean information from the Mayor of Chicago regarding Rittenhouse. He got the information he was looking for, so I guess we’ll see everyone in 1954 DC in next week’s episode.
Lucy’s quick thinking and the team successfully convincing Al’s older brother to meet with him and to turn him in was pretty awesome. Teamwork to the rescue. I felt for Al’s brother to have to kill his own brother just so he won’t get to kill anyone else. That’s gotta be rough.
We all know Rufus is going to survive so that cliffhanger really isn’t a cliffhanger. I loved the concern Wyatt and Lucy showed for Rufus. They really are a true family in every sense of the word since they have gone through so much within months of knowing each other.
Jiya being her awesome self back in Mason Industries was pretty badass. I laughed at her “I still have to pee” line. My only gripe was the fact that she didn’t do anything to hide the burner phone in a more discrete spot. Instead she left it there for the NSA agent to easily spot. I was a bit confused by this scene because why would she do that? LOVED her calling out Mason for being a coward. He really is.
Speaking of Mason, what is he going to do with all that information from the NSA’s data bank?
Lots of hilarious and great lines in this episode:
“Don’t ‘ma’am’ me.”
“I’m Connery. This is Costner. This here is our driver, Robert de Niro.”
“Are you wearing a woman’s sweater?”
“I’m wearing button-fly jeans from the Gap.”
The last line was made infinitely funnier when Lucy glanced down at Wyatt’s pants after he said that line. I had to pause the video because I was laughing so hard.
