When Rufus and Jiya add a fourth seat to the Lifeboat, for the first time ever, Connor Mason joins the team as they travel back to the dusty backroads and smoky juke joints of the Depression-era South to rescue the life and legacy of Robert Johnson, who, legend has it, bought his musical genius from the devil for the price of his soul. Meanwhile, Agent Christopher keeps Wyatt in the present to execute a dangerous raid on Rittenhouse headquarters.
Did You Know?
The urban legend that Robert Johnson
sold his soul to the devil in exchange for his skills as a guitar player is part of the mythology of his song "Cross Road Blues"; as arranged by Eric Clapton
, the live version by Cream
on their album "Wheels of Fire", re-titled "Crossroads", is probably the most famous cover version of the song. See more
At approximately 9:45 into this episode's soundtrack, Jiya (Claudia Doumit) asks Denise Christopher (Sakina Jaffrey), concerning instructions to Wyatt Logan (Matt Lantner), why she's not "sending in the calvary [sic]". In response, Denise answers, "I don't trust the calvary [sic]". The correct word, of course, is "cavalry". Although it's properly rendered in the English subtitles, it's just mispronounced. It's certainly easy enough to do given the similar spellings. But what, perhaps, makes it a little more interesting is that this slight error was made by both actresses and apparently not caught on-set. See more
Hey, I'm glad you and Jessica are enjoying the room.
I know, I feel bad about...
Because that 1950s Kem Weber sofa sleeps like a dream. It's like staying at the Four Seasons.
Yeah, except there's only ever one season, and that season is winter.
