Great recap and well deserved praise for Sean’s performance which was brilliant.
A guest-star spot has got to be one of the toughest gigs in the acting biz, the way an actor has to hold his own among any number of established characters, so I must give big props to Sean Maguire (one of those been-around-forever character actors; geez, anyone else remember Off Centre? The Class?) for inhabiting his part so deeply and naturally. I dare say I reacted to his magnetic onscreen presence much like the Scooby Gang did, with my stomach slightly aflutter. Never has a line on Timeless felt so historically accurate as when Wyatt insists, “That’s Ian Fleming. The Ian Fleming.”
