“The Lost Generation” is another amazing episode and story builder as we reach the last couple of episodes of the season.
With Wyatt arrested and taken to a secret undercover blacksite, Lucy and Rufus still has to deal with Flynn as he travels back to Paris 1927 the day that Charles Lindbergh completed his trans-Atlantic flight, in this case almost did.
During this episode, Lucy gets a little understanding of what her dad tells her about Rittenhouse, that it’s not only a legacy, it’s in her blood. She threatens to take down it but he doesn’t believe that she would, hell he even said that he said and did at the time he learned about Rittenhouse.
Just before the mission, Rufus learns about Lucy’s dad, gets a bit upset, but they move on to the next mission along with a new solider ( I rather call it a new companion), Bam Bam (as Wyatt calls him). They go back sees that Flynn has been around and tat Lindbergh had crashed his plane. As they got word they bump into another famous face, Ernest Hemingway at the time a journalist and author of one book. I don’t know about you, but I would probably enjoy having Hemingway as a life coach after this episode.
Another famous face was Josephine Baker, back then she was the Beyonce at that time which was the best description. They asked for her help in finding Lindbergh and soon later Bam Bam spotted Emma with Flynn’s hitch-man along. Soon they followed them outside where then gunfire was exchange, hitting Bam Bam and dying.
Lucy, Rufus and Hemingway search for Lindbergh, they come to an abandoned house, as Hemingway asked for help (he was about to punk), Lucy looks around by herself and gets caught and taken to Flynn. There Flynn and Lucy talk: about Rittenhouse, her father and of course, Lindbergh. Lindbergh is one of Rittenhouse and Flynn wants some answers and Lucy offered a deal if she can get him to talk about them in exchange for his safety. Flynn agrees and hears the name Cheviot, as one of the members and soon went to meet him to have a chat about Rittenhouse.
Rufus and Hemingway had some nice scene together one of them Hemingway trying to spark up Rufus that got him motivated and found both Lucy and Lindbergh. But on their way out Emma was there and after Rufus gave her the option to either come along or let them through and not get shot; she let them through.
Meanwhile, while all of this was happening, Agent Christopher gets word that she is no long in command that the NSA has taken over. She goes to Wyatt about it and discuss why there are over a dozen of people just like that to come in and take over. It all made sense when it all connects to Rittenhouse. Christopher offers him a deal but Wyatt denies it but after she left, she leaves him with a paperclip to escape, which he did and soon meet with her, Lucy and Rufus back at their secret location (Warehouse).
Just before the episode ended, Lucy talks with her mom about meeting her dad. She tells Lucy that she wouldn’t have anything different knowing what a fine woman she has turned out, but also gives her a gift something to express her feelings when she’s upset about something: which happens to be the journal that Flynn has been holding and getting his information.
I enjoyed this episode so much. The writing was strong and the cast from Spencer, Barrett and even Brandon Barash as Hemingway was amazing and so much fun to watch. Even Wersching was good and she only had a couple of scenes in the episode. As I said before I loved that scene with Rufus and Hemingway talk about fighting the good fight. It really made me want to do something bold that I never done before. Overall, I give this episode a 8.5/10.
