Not having seen many previous episodes and only having read up on the prior season, I can’t say that the reunions of past and present characters are as appreciated by me as they probably were by those of you who have followed along from the start.
Helen Magnus has traveled back in time in pursuit of Adam Worth. Once an acquaintance, he developed Jekyll/Hyde personality traits after his daughter died. He blamed Magnus for not trying harder to save her. After having developed and perfected his time dilation machine (after the destruction of Praxis) he was successful in traveling back in time to 1898 in an attempt to save his daughter’s life regardless of the implications to the timeline.
Following Worth, Magnus reunites with her detective friend, James Watson, who discovers soon enough that she is from the future, ya know, cause he’s a detective. She is cautious in teaming up with him, not knowing the implications on the future.
I sense that this reunion is probably really great for long term watchers and fans. I also sense that this episode may be better appreciated by those that have watched the flashback episodes on the inceptions of Sancutary and the original group.
What I loved about the episode was that it felt that at the end of the day, no one succeeded or failed.
