I originally assumed the name “Rittenhouse” was just a coincidence but after the final scene of the Bonnie and Clyde episode, I think it must refer to David Rittenhouse (1732-1796), one of the first and most prominent American astronomers. He was famous for being the first American to build orreries and precise clocks – just like the clock we saw Flynn access in the final scene! Rittenhouse built orreries for the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University) and the College of Philadelphia (now the University of Pennsylvania.) Here is a photo of the Rittenhouse orrery at UPenn:
Great call, I always think it is fun when someone is exactly right.
don’t like that they are changing the timeline and pretending it wouldn’t have catastrophic effects. It just doesn’t really make sense as a premise and nothing is happening
This is what is most frustrating to me also. Sorry but if you change one little thing it should change a slew of other things.
I think the show wants us to care about the romance between Wyatt and Lucy while I don’t care. I care more about Flynn who is doing all this to get his wife and child back. He is by far the most complex character and therefore the most interesting. It would be even better if we got some flashbacks about these characters’ lives with their loved ones so we could feel invested in their lives. At this point I am just hoping that Flynn’s wife is actually Lucy and he somehow changed history enough to get her back alive but not enough for her to remember their lives together or their daughter. I know this has huge plot problems but other than that I am not really invested in any of the character’s past lives so I am just watching because I enjoy the history part of it.
