How Eli’s Despair in Austin Led Him to an Old Flame

In Episode 3, Eli and Phineas drive ten hours to Austin to meet with a banker in the hopes that they’ll receive funding to kick-start their oil business.

Shortly into their lunch, they learn the banker has no intention of giving them money. The man simply wanted to meet the infamous Eli McCullough.

“Eli is the 1915 version of a rockstar. He’s royalty,” explains Executive Producer and Showrunner Kevin Murphy in the exclusive behind-the-scenes video.

Disheartened by the failed meeting, Eli pays a visit to an old, mysterious love, Ingrid.

“They’re modern people living in this mangled, cruel world,” Pierce Brosnan says.
