Nothing like driving in the fast line back in the 1950's to get your blood pumping right?
This week's episode takes our #TimeTeam to Sept. 4, 1955, where the Mothership is Darlington, South Carolina, thanks to Flynn's tip-off about a Rittenhouse-affiliated address. That's where they discover that Rittenhouse is after a NASCAR race driver Ryan Millerson, who is to race at the Darlington 500.
But at the track, they realize that Millerson is one of the sleeper agents for Rittenhouse and just before getting into trouble again with Emma, black race car driver Wendell Scott saves them from being killed. The team finds a bomb in Millerson's car and learn that it's intended to murder the automotive executives that are attending so that Rittenhouse could take over the auto industry.
But when they get Wendell to sneak them back into the track to stop Rittenhouse, Wyatt kills Millerson, not before the bomb is armed and drives the car with cops on their tails back to Wendell's garage. With the cops passing by, Rufus defuses the bomb.
Meanwhile, back in the present, Mason makes a bold move of making a public appearance that's against Agent Christopher's orders. She comes in just before he goes on and makes sense of his arrest and takes him back to the compound. Along with that Jiya as been seen visions of what the future may be looking as she saw Rufus's arm looking burned, but when he gets back from 1955, his arm was burned. But Keynes reveals his vision to make perfect humanity by cutting away the flaws.
"The Darlington 500" was an amazing storytelling episode of not only what NASCAR was back in the day but what it's like for a fan, like Wyatt. You see Wyatt's character light up with excitement as a fan would when meeting their heroes. I couldn't get enough o Wendell Scott in this episode but also learn about him as well. It still gives that thrill and intense with the car chase, the surprises of Millerson being a sleeper agent and what's to come next that give this show something to look forward. The writing was good, and the performance was strong. Overall, I give this episode a 9/10.
