Do you ever see someone’s list of OTP’s and it’s so straight and you have this moment where you remember that not everyone delves into fandom and shipping to be submerged into the gay content you’re deprived of in conventional media
Because of this ask I received, I was inspired to find the clock in Mason Industries at the end of each mission to see how long they were gone. The clock starts the second they leave for the past and stops when they return. It is not visible every time (especially not in later episodes), but I’ll share what I can find or derive.
So, for anyone else curious just how long the team was in the past each episode, here you go.
1.01 - Pilot
15 hours, 8 minutes, 46 seconds
1.02 - The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln
23 hours, 48 minutes, 56 seconds
1.03 - Atomic City
13 hours, 48 minutes, 18 seconds
1.04 - Party at Castle Varlar
21 hours, 29 minutes, 26 seconds
1.05 - The Alamo
N/A *This timeline is a conundrum.
Historically, the Alamo falls early in the morning on March 6th. Jiya says Flynn jumped to March 2nd. Lucy says the Alamo is not supposed to fall for four more days, so March 2nd. And yet the date that the title card flips over from in the beginning of the episode says, “03041836″: March 4th.
Considering the long shadows coming from the tents in Santa Anna’s camp, Flynn does not first meet with him at midday. It is morning or afternoon. Enough happens during that day (also the team would arrive later than Flynn and did not do so at night) that I’ll assume it’s morning and Flynn interrupts Santa Anna’s breakfast. That night, Flynn kills William Travis. Most of the episode takes place during the second day, March 3rd. I see no evidence of a second night, but for the title card to say March 4th implies that is when the battle takes place. (Even though the displayed date is usually the first day they jump to. However, 1.07 is another exception to this.) The conclusion for this trip is indeterminable. Perhaps the title card date is wrong, confused by the fact that their interference made the Alamo fall prematurely. I will ignore the title card and remark on what I see. Flynn arrived in the morning. There is one night. The Alamo fell in the afternoon of the second day.
This trip lasted two days but less than 48 hours.
1.06 - The Watergate Tape
N/A *Given Flynn’s time limit of five hours + any time before/after it until they returned, this trip most likely lasted 8-10 hours.
1.07 - Stranded
*NOTE: This screenshot is taken at the beginning of the episode, three hours after Flynn returned. The team remains in the past another night and day.
This trip lasted four days.
1.08 - Space Race
N/A *Flynn arrived late at night and left the next afternoon. The team was there for a lesser amount of time.
This trip lasted less than one day.
1.09 - Last Ride of Bonnie & Clyde
N/A *They arrived during the day, stayed the night, and left early the next morning.
1.10 - The Capture of Benedict Arnold
58 hours, 46 minutes, 38 seconds
*Blurry but the best shot I could get. I could be reading it wrong. I know the adventure itself lasted two days, and, logically, Wyatt and Rufus would then have to travel back to where they left the Lifeboat. 58 hours is a reasonable length of time, though it pertains only to Wyatt and Rufus. Flynn and Lucy would have been there less than 48 hours (perhaps 36 hours). They arrived on the morning of September 25th and left early in the night on September 26th, just after sunset.
1.11 - The World’s Columbian Exposition
N/A *After the episode first came out, I calculated that Lucy was with Flynn for at least 18 hours. Then she escaped.
Lucy and Flynn arrived, presumably, at night (if not before) and left at night. They were there a full day. Wyatt and Rufus were there for a shorter amount of time. We don’t see them until the next day.
This trip lasted one night and day for Flynn and Lucy, around 24 hours (or possibly more). Wyatt and Rufus were there 20 or less hours.
1.12 - The Murder of Jesse James
N/A *In the original timeline, Jesse James was killed by his partners in the morning. The time travelers were there that entire day. They camped at night. Spent the next day traveling. Made it to Emma’s cabin that night. Left the next day.
This trip lasted three days and around 48 hours.
1.13 - Karma Chameleon
N/A *Don’t hold me to this, but I believe Claire’s plane landed at around 1pm. I think the clock on the screen with the flights says 13:17. Last call for bars in Ohio (when Joel’s shift would end) is 2am. Shortly after that time, Joel and Claire went back to her hotel room, and later Wyatt interrupted them. After Joel’s death, Wyatt and Rufus leave. In the present day, it goes from being late at night/early in the morning to nighttime again in the end.
This trip lasted around 14-16 hours.
1.14 - The Lost Generation
N/A *Charles Lindbergh was supposed to land after 10pm. Flynn must have intercepted him in the late afternoon. The rest of the episode takes place at night without ever seeing morning.
This trip lasted several hours of an indeterminable count. Probably no more than 12-13 hours for the team.
1.15 - Public Enemy No. 1
N/A *I believe the clock above the hotel’s front door when Flynn first meets Capone says 11:10am. (But he would have been there a few hours already to steal all of the evidence he presented. Maybe since around 9am.) The team arrived four hours after him. When they go to the hotel later with Capone’s brother, the clock says 1:29am. They parked the Lifeboat in a field outside the city so travel needs to be included.
This trip lasted 14-16 hours.
1.16 - The Red Scare
N/A *They arrive during the day. The exact time is unclear, but with the Rittenhouse summit being that night, Flynn wouldn’t have risked waiting around for Lucy and Wyatt to show unless he had time to spare. He probably arrived in the morning or midday. The summit and climax occur that night. Don’t know what Flynn, Lucy, Wyatt, and Ethan spend the rest of the night doing, but they don’t drive into the warehouse with the Lifeboat until early the next morning.
This trip lasted two days but less than 24 hours.
There’s no real purpose behind this list besides curiosity. However, if you are interested in setting a fic during any of the episodes, here is the time span you have to do it in. Maybe that will help someone somewhere.
like obviously its not up to the person who sees someone is doing something wrong to inform that person if they dont want to but if you DO and you have the energy to explain i dont understand doing that. if you do not then block and move on
oh god get rid of the superiority complex tbh. why do yall hate it when people have fun? so what if someone has a faq page and reblogs "unaesthetic" landscape pics? it doesn't make you any better than them.
its not that deep? im sure that irl there are incredible people who do the things on that post but like… if you’ve got a community of 70 million users like tumblr then its only kind of natural that people start categorising other users in ways that make sense to them. anyway i think its kinda funny but obviously i dont think im better than them. mayhaps u should chillax and jump to annoying conclusions about another user lmao
there’s something about even’s little nod in this scene
because even knows. he’s not oblivious, he notices the way isak reacts to his presence, to him. he’s been noticing him for weeks, weeks before they first met. he saw the way isak was when he came over to his place the previous week, he saw the look in his eyes, the light in his eyes, he saw the way he smiled and laughed, he noticed the changes in his voice. he probably memorized his facial expressions and the things he said last friday. kept replaying them in his mind every single day, in class, before going to bed, when he was with other people
earlier in that episode, when he came to give isak his snapback, in a matter of seconds, he understood that isak hadn’t told his friends he had gone to his place, he understood that he didn’t want them to know. because he sees and understands. he remembered the cardamom on the cheese toasties five weeks later, how they were sitting on the floor of his room as they ate them, he remembered isak saying he had a drop of water in his throat, he remembered isak talking about parallel universes. because he pays such close attention to isak and the way he looks and moves and speaks and all the things he says
do you think that even, who saw this boy on the first day of school, who was probably looking forward to seeing him even when it was just at school, in public, in rooms and hallways with other students, would not notice how isak was acting? notice the way he’s been looking at him the moment he showed up at his place for the pregame? the way he starred at him when he kissed sonja and looked at him straight in the eyes? how tensed he was as he told him about sonja and how they’d been together for years? the intonation of his voice as he said his okay’s (been together since we were 15. okay. can’t dump her. okay). do you think that even who’s been desperately trying to spend time alone with this boy he was falling for would not notice the smile that spread all over isak’s face when he realized that even was messing with him, the smile he was trying to stop it, in vain? do you think he would not sense his attraction to him? the vulnerability?
of course even notices. and since he came to see isak in his kitchen, he’s only been kidding, pretending not to be serious. but with that little nod, he grows more serious. with that little nod, it’s like he’s saying i see you, i see it, i’ve seen you for a while. it’s reassuring. it’s okay. it’s understanding. i know, isak. i know. me too
Imagine if they had stuck with the original Unaired Pilot. Maybe the show wouldn’t have been as quality, but we wouldn’t be in this Neverending Hell because you know for a fact that they would’ve been fucking by episode three.
can u believe they Did That™ and kelly got to talk about and mourn her very long, very meaningful and loving marriage to her late husband while still being romantically involved w/ a girl and end up happy w/ her?
can u believe her bisexuality wasn’t erased but actually reinforced by the narrative and made very very clear?
can u believe this interracial bi/lesbian relationship ended happily, with them literally driving off into the sunset like we’ve always dreamed?????
i cant wait for dnp to get married and make a golden future for themselves just… lying in bed wrapped in soft blankets and love warmer than anything listening to quiet music and watching the clouds move by their window bc they have to be floating at this point..
“Do you remember what I said to you when you told me you were a lesbian?” “’Thank god you finally said it’?” “After that.” “…’You better find a girl who deserves you’.” “Yes! That! And this might be so shocking to you, but a murderous vampire isn’t what I had in mind!!”
