Wyatt befriends history professor, Lucy, in the pilot episode (“Pilot”). He likes to flirt with her and he calls her "Ma'am" even though she doesn't like it. They become close friends further into the season and start to trust each other. In the “Last Ride of Bonnie & Clyde” Wyatt and Lucy are undercover as a married couple to gain the trust of Bonnie and Clyde. When Bonnie asks how he proposed to Lucy, he notices that Lucy falters and he ends up describing his proposal story. When he notices that Clyde isn't buying the story, he convinces him of their love by kissing Lucy. It is obvious by how intensely they look at each other, that the kiss meant something to them. Later in the episode they are laying in bed together, talking about Lucy's fiance, Noah. He tries to tell Lucy that she isn't meant to be with him and they both eventually agree to be "open to the possibilities". However, they are unaware that they are talking about each other. At the end of the episode, both him and Lucy brush off the kiss, agreeing that they only kissed to stay undercover. Throughout the season they become closer and eventually trust each other with their secrets and lives. In the Season 1 finale, Wyatt tells Lucy he is not ready to say goodbye to her, and he seems like he developed feelings for her. Wyatt and Lucy almost kiss, but Connor Mason interrupts them. In the season 2 premiere, it is revealed that Lucy was captured by Rittenhouse. Throughout the beginning of the episode Wyatt is worried sick. This is obvious when he is the bathroom, and punches the wall in frustration since it has been 6 weeks since they have last seen Lucy. Right when he is about to lose hope, the Mothership travels to early 1900's France. Rittenhouse went there to recruit Nicholas Keynes, Lucy's great grandfather who fights in World War I in France. Once he and Rufus get there via the Lifeboat, they find Lucy at a camp. Later in the episode, Wyatt learns that Lucy's mother is part of Rittenhouse and that she was the one who kidnapped her.
