"London, May 1916" is the second episode of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, and the second episode in season one. It originally aired on ABC on March 11, 1992.

Plot summary[edit | edit source]

Indiana Jones and Bob Traynor are at a restaurant, where they have been discussing Jones' financial situation. Jones overhears a woman's voice, and ignores the words of Traynor. Jones tells Traynor that the voice reminds him of the time he was in 1916 London.

Jones tells Traynor that Vicky was right—they would have been two different people after the war. Jones shows Traynor the train ticket from the experience, which he still keeps in his diary. After Jones finishes his story, the woman and her peers pass the table as they are leaving. Jones recognizes that the woman is indeed Vicky Prentiss, and then calls her name. Prentiss also recognizes Indy and the two are happily reunited.
