In the previous episode, “The Murder of Jesse James”, Flynn found the person he was looking for in the 19th century – Emma Whitmore, a former pilot of the mothership who had supposedly died in an accident, according to Anthony. She said that when she found out what Rittenhouse wanted to use the time machine for, she faked her own death and essentially hid, and that even Anthony doesn’t really know what they want to do with it. Rufus had recognised her name when they found her uniform, and told Mason about it, and Jiya, whilst poking around on the servers, had also found out about Whitmore’s death. At the end of the episode Wyatt asked Rufus to, basically, steal the time machine so that they could go back in time to prevent the murder of Wyatt’s wife, Jessica. A pretty big ask really, as they can’t go back to the time of the murder – or even particularly close (as in decades out).
