Name of the Episode: “Party at Castle Varlar”

The episode will be focusing on the events of Nazi Germany and their plans to launch a rocket. In the present, Anthony is trying to engage the bomb so it will be active for travel. He is successful as the Mason squad tears into the hideout spot. Flynn and his group jump into the mother ship and speed off to Nazi Germany. If Flynn gives the atomic bomb to the Germans, it would make their atomic plans come sooner. At Mason’s headquarters before launch, Mason shows the team their wardrobe that spans decades and geographical areas. Looks like a lot more adventures are on the horizon.

Wyatt knows German so he can be extremely helpful on the mission. A German soldier sees the team come into the forest, but is shot before he can call for help. Wyatt shoots another soldier without a thought, while Lucy hopes they were not a big part of history. Lucy and Wyatt infiltrate a bar to hopefully find more information about the launch of any missiles. A German captain approaches Lucy and Wyatt and commands them to exit the bar. He is Ian Fleming, a part of the allied resistance, MI6 spy; and most importantly, the creator of James Bond.

The target of the bomb is civilians and allied troops. They all plan to work together to stop the Nazi’s from sending their weapon into battle. A spark is seen between Ian and Lucy while they’re forming their plans. The team sees the atomic weapon is not in the rocket and they begin to wonder if they were wrong about Flynn’s plan. Flynn had donated to Werner Von Braun’s research; and the Germans showed him the rocket in return. Von Braun is very important to history, but Lucy is having a hard time adjusting to the thought of being undercover as a Nazi German.

Moreover, she only puts herself in situations she can control. Each time she enters the time machine, she cannot control her surroundings. Ian and Lucy sneak into the party to celebrate the rocket launch; Wyatt has his own plans and shoots the Nazi guards in front of the rocket. Rufus opens the latch and begins to configure the wiring structure. Flynn’s plan is to give Von Braun over to the Soviet’s so they can win the cold war and the race to space. Flynn anticipated Ian’s involvement and tipped off the Nazi’s to their plans. Lucy and Ian are taking by soldiers to a back room; Rufus decides not to disarm the rocket because it might save his team.

They set off a major explosion, Flynn loses Van Braun in the chaos; they end up in a room with no doors and no windows. Lucy suddenly remembers the value of the castle; they have a secret exit to escape once again from Flynn. The team was able to save history and become featured characters in a 1960s Bond film.  Anthony used the bomb to make an eternal battery for the mother ship. His calculations show the battery will last 300 years, now headquarters will not be able to track their whereabouts. Rufus declines to keep recording the team on their missions; and does not want to help Mason with written house anymore.

Lucy also demands Mason’s team work on getting her sister back to the timeline and providing an adequate cover story, otherwise she will not participate in the time jumps anymore. Rufus gets a direct intervention from written house on his drive back home. His family is threatened unless he cooperates with their plan.

On next week’s episode, Remember the Alamo! Seems like Flynn’s plan is to be rid of the Alamo to discourage the idea of Texas. If Texas doesn’t exist, Mexico would hold more of North America than before. Stay tuned for more after takes!
