The Timeless movie event wrapped up the show with a tidy bow—and though it didn’t make everyone happy—was there any way it could have?

Regardless of how you feel about it, no end to Timeless was ever going to make everyone happy. Fans of the series have been especially averse to the word “ending” so nothing that even resembled a conclusion would have made them as happy as a third season. Still, the two-hour movie event did about as good of a job as possible under the circumstances.

To backtrack a little, the circumstances surrounding the movie deal weren’t ideal. The show had been canceled twice before and fans had to fight just for a two-hour movie. Talk about surviving against great odds.

But to wrap up things—even if they did leave open a possibility of more in the future—the producers and writers onTimeless had to make some tough choices. Those decisions involved sacrificing characters who might have received much better endings had the show continued.

Still, was there ever any question that Lyatt ended the show? And was a happy ending ever in the cards for Flynn? As someone who lost everything made many mistakes, and ultimately, proved himself a tragic hero, was he always destined for this fate?

While we’ll never know what could have happened with more time, we do know that the end result wouldn’t have changed. The time team going on one last mission—Lucy and Wyatt getting their happily-ever-after—Jiya and Rufus changing the world together—Denise and Mason, always the Bunker Parents—and Flynn with his family—one way or another.

Sound perfect? Nothing ever truly is. But considering the circumstances, this was about as close as we were going to get to a happy ending.
