‘Timeless’ goes on a last, fan-powered mission, but has the clock really stopped ticking?

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. – On a November afternoon on the missile-silo set of “Timeless,” it’s as if no time has passed since May’s Season 2 finale. 

Time-traveling heroes Lucy (Abigail Spencer) and Wyatt (Matt Lanter) are just where viewers last saw them, facing future versions of themselves – actually, stand-in doubles – as they learn there’s a chance to save their late friend and colleague Rufus. That discovery sets the show’s two-hour finale (Dec. 20, 8 EST/PST) in motion.

For the actors facing doppelgangers, “it’s a little weird,” Lanter says during a break. “We’re literally interacting with ourselves. I don’t think I’ve ever done that, having to talk to myself. It’s unique.” 

As the scene ends, future Lucy tosses off a “Merry Christmas,” a seasonal theme that plays out throughout the finale. 

But Lucy, Wyatt and their colleagues, Flynn (Goran Visnjic), Jiya (Claudia Doumit), Agent Christopher (Sakina Jaffrey) and Connor Mason (Paterson Joseph), are hardly in a holiday mood. Christmas itself is on hold, maybe even canceled, until the Lifeboat team can find their friend and bring him back to life.
