Why does a 79th century criminal released Stormcage named Krasko carry an old battered leather suitcase full of temporal displacement equipment with the initials G.F.B.?
One possible explanation is that Krasko is a descendent of the bus driver who called for Rosa Parks’ arrest for failure to surrender her seat on the bus he was driving to a white passenger.
After Ryan and Yaz’s conversation about how things for people of color have changed though problems remain, it is discouraging to discover that a racist like Krasko would exist in the 79th century.
Krasko is undoubtedly a racist but his motivations could also be personal. He could possibly be trying to deliver his ancestor from the infamy he earned from the bus incident.
James F. Blake, J.F.B.; that’s a striking similarity to the G.F.B. initials on the suitcase.
It would be distressing to the Blake family to suggest that one of their descendants becomes a racist criminal in the future so perhaps this could possibly be an abandoned plot thread.
Time will tell whether or how this G.F.B. mystery is resolved.
