On Timeless, Lucy (Abigail Spencer) and Wyatt(Matt Lanter)’s relationship has quickly gained a fandom of its own. #timeless
For all the time-travelling that Lucy and Wyatt have been doing on Timeless, perhaps they never expected to wind up here. Before the show went on its winter break, the pair shared a kiss onscreen. Sure, it may have been a “fake” kiss, meant to validate their disguise as a couple. But could that kiss lead into a romance much more real?
During the episode Last Ride of Bonnie and Clyde, the group traveled back to 1934. There, they came face-to-face with the notorious pair of bank robbers. In order to gain their trust (Bonnie had a key that they needed), Lucy and Wyatt pretend to be bank robbers and lovers as well. Their kiss was a moment of inspiration, making the act that much more convincing.
Naturally, this kind of act doesn’t go quietly among a show’s viewership. Timeless fans immediately began arguing on the validity of that kiss. How real was it? What was that momentary expression of shock on their faces, following the kiss? And is something really brewing between Lucy and Wyatt?
Executive producer Eric Kripke has the short answer: “No,” he told TV Line. “There’s some kind of sexual tension there. I think that first kiss kind of awoke something that was subconscious before,” he explains, before concluding, “It’s just another color in their relationship.”
Despite Lucy and Wyatt eventually turning their focus back to their mission to stop Flynn, their working relationship does maintain its share of complications. The two certainly have their own hands full, without a potential romance elbowing its way into the picture. Lucy has her “fiancé” back in the present; Wyatt is still coming to terms with the death of his wife, Jessica.
