86 years B.McD. (before McDonald's) in the year 1868, Ravona Renslayer arrives in Chicago looking for Miss Minutes. Ravona is instructed to deliver a package into a window to complete He Who Remains plan to safeguard the timeline. Inside a young boy opens the package and reveals the TVA handbook.
Trying to locate Renslayer, Loki and Mobius travel to 1868, but unable to locate her they travel to a new branched timeline in 1893. The new branch was created by Miss Minutes interference in 1868. They quickly locate a confidence trickster called Victor Timely who is advertising a way to harness time, through his Temporal Loom prototype.
Victor sells his fake invention scam to an investor named Robber Barron, but soon has four interested parties after him. Loki and Mobius, need his aura to fix the Loom; while Renslayer and Miss Minutes, want him to take his variant's place with them at his side; while Sylvie has arrived to kill him to prevent his rise to power but is thwarted by Loki; and Robber Baron wants his money back.
Victor manages to escape most of his suitors, as he takes a boat to his Wisconsin laboratory with Miss Minutes and Renslayer, but Renslayer is sent overboard in a lifeboat on the advice of Miss Minutes after she looks for a partnership with Victor. But Miss Minutes fairs little better after she professes romantic love for him and is deactivated by Victor using a TemPad.
Victor is not alone for long as Renslayer, Loki, Mobius, and Sylvie arrive at his laboratory. Sylvie gains control of the situation threatening Victor with her blade but allows Loki to take Victor back to the TVA, then sends Renslayer to the Citadel at the End of Time.
