Super excited to have this back after the winter finale, although I probably won't get to it until later in the week.

I thought was a good episode for a return. Great ways to blend the historical figures and the event.

Nice return episode. All actions seemed to flow from the story and were believable. The integration of Houdini into the teams predicament was very well done.

Really liked how Rufus "choose a side". Nice move. Maybe John Getz will return soon. Wonder about the inevitable discovery that he is Lucy's father.

Glad to see this one return.

Glad it's back but felt like 'filler' to me.

Great episodes. I loved the inclusion of the murder hotel and Houdini.

I think there was a Supernatural episode about this murder hotel. The hotel is still standing, abandoned ruin, and the killer's ghost is still after people. Sam and Dean discovered he buried all his victims in a vacant lot next to the hotel.

Really fun episode. Enjoyed seeing Houdini.

Wasn't familiar with H.H. Holmes until I looked him up. I was amused how no one at that time knew what serial killer meant.

Agreed this was a good episode back. Did a great job to show the urgency of Rufus and Wyatt to get Lucy back. They did a great job too at the end. You could see the horor in both their faces when she was abducted, again, only to call out in the same panicked manner.

I thought it was funny how multiple people throughout the episode kept questioning what a serial killer was.

Nice double cross by Houdini on Flynn!

Has Rufus had the most character development to date?

Interesting dilemma at the end for Wyatt!

Damn, this was good. Definitely my favorite episode so far.

Excellent chemistry between Lucy and Houdini. Had no idea about the Holmes story. Will definitely read more about that.

I wonder if they're going to delve more into Lucy's backstory. In the pilot when they get in the Lifeboat Lucy mentions she doesn't like small spaces. Then when she was trapped here she muttered the same thing hing under her breath. Great consistency and callback by the writers.

Great episode. The guys who played Houdini was excellent. Rufus continues to be the main reason to watch the show.

I keep thinking they might touch on how the people that either survive or die due to their involvement have and effect on history... but mostly nothing. In particular it seemed like they went into the backstory of the woman in the hotel such that they would note something specific in the future that she created. That's the one thing that would improve this series.

Yeah, I've seen that complaint a few places on the internet. Aside from the major change during the pilot, and anticdotes at the end of some episodes there hasn't been any major ramifications from their trips.

I am getting a bit worried. I think we only have 5 episodes left, and unless iTunes, on demand, app streaming or DVR are stellar I'm worried we won't get any more. I hope they can use those episodes to do some really good stories and advance the main plot.

I am too. Timeless is one of the few new broadcast shows that I like. Some of the DVR numbers have been good. I do wonder about NBC app or Hulu streaming numbers. There were a couple of early episodes I saw on the Top 10 iTunes chart.
