TIMELESS wrapped up its run with a television movie, and the writers were able to tie up most of the loose ends.

Getting closure wasn’t just important for the fans–it was necessary for the actors who had portrayed the characters. The cast weighed in on those happy endings…

The main triangle came to an unexpected conclusion.

Though fans were split about whether Lucy (Abigail Spencer) should end up with Wyatt (Matt Lanter) or Flynn (Goran Višnjić). Ultimately, Flynn made the decision for everyone, as he opted to take on a suicide mission to save Rufus (Malcolm Barrett).

“Flynn really becomes a sacrificial lamb,” Spencer acknowledges. “For someone who instigated the entire journey, he is the sacrificial lamb, and he is the reason we save Rufus. That brings a lot of peace between Lucy and Flynn and also Wyatt and Flynn. He also sacrifices himself so Wyatt and Lucy can be together. He really makes that choice for them. There’s something so beautiful about that for Flynn.”

The events of the finale helped clarify for Lucy that she really did love Wyatt, and wanted to be with him. In the ending flash forward, the duo were married with kids.

“I like that future for Wyatt,” Lanter says. “I just want him to find happiness in a way where he releases himself from guilt, and finds an ounce of happiness. If that’s with Lucy and a future with her, I’m happy for him. He just needs to let go of all this guilt he’s been carrying the past two seasons.”

“It shows how much they love each other,” Spencer adds. “[Co-creators] Eric [Kripke] and Shawn [Ryan], they always pitched that at the end of the day it would be a show about the characters. I think having seen the arc in its totality, that holds true. The history lessons are fun, but if it weren’t encased in the people we care about, I don’t think people would be able to digest or be as interested in it.”

Rufus and Jiya (Claudia Doumit) formed an adorable company.

After the duo survived being trapped in different time periods and death, they formed Riya Industries (a nod to their ‘ship name), where Rufus reached out to promising student at fairs…just like Connor (Paterson Joseph) changed his life.

Future Rufus “cares about making a home for himself,” Barrett says. “He cares about Jiya. That’s how he’s evolved: how does he become more of a whole man? What does he do, what is his life, what are his goals? I think he does get a certain amount of satisfaction in terms of his goals and the chances and opportunities he’s given and what he was able to do for others.”

“I think we achieve [a happy ending],” Doumit adds. “What Jiya wants is just to have a happy life. Not be struggling with visions or worrying about her boyfriend dying or anything like that. I think she wants some sense of normalcy and happiness. I think that’s the most important thing.”

Agent Christopher (Sakina Jaffrey) got to save the day!

Prior to the script being written, Jaffrey texted the writers and asked if she’d be time traveling; at that point, they didn’t know yet. But it ended up happening—and being pivotal to saving the Time Team.

“I don’t spend a lot of time in the past, but it happened!” she says with a laugh. “And there was a movement online. I sort of saved the day! And leave it to [finale writers] Arika [Lisanne Mittman] and Lauren [Greer] to have a woman save the day. A lot of time I wasn’t the one who was making things happen—I was, but back at the bunker. But I’m very much driving the agenda and the salvation of the group [in the finale] which feels really good.”
