The thing is- we assume Alec went back in time to save Emily- for all we know he could have gone forward to make "corrections" too.

Carlos is now siding with Julian? What a mess!

We must assume Alec went back to save his girlfriend, he told Kira he was sorry. He wouldnt say that if he was gonna make corrections. He doesnt care to change the future that much. He is a teenage kid who lost his girl because of his mistakes.

Maybe he wants to help Kira too but its clear he is emotionally invested to save his girl just like Kira want to protect the future so she can go back to her family.

We then also get into the whole two versions of a person in the same timeline problems if he goes back to save Emily? There is so much potential to where they can go with it next season.


The timeline change i like how dark the ending was for this versions of Kira, other time travelers. The two versions of a person in the timeline Alec wasnt sure about. We know for story reasons there cant be two Alec dramaticly when he goes back, enters a new timeline. We cant care about two Alecs. Its would take the focus away from the future story, the continuum and into time travel paradox issues.


I liked how the freelancers wasnt worried about Alec trying to change time, they were sure they would go after him instead of Kira in this new timeline. I wonder how they can know who does the changes, who is the danger? What and who are they are they really? They cant be simple 2077 sect.

You're probably right- I'd like to go back to get the GF I had when I was 19 biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

This show frustrates me. If the entire season was as good as the finale, Continuum would be one of the best shows on TV. Instead, it feels like the writers dragged out the season and then piled on the answers all at once, because they couldn't think of a way to extend the crux of the plot over a dozen episodes.

Anyway, it would seem that Alec is going back in time to save Emily after all, although his attempt may not pan out. That scene did bother me, though: in the time that he was chatting with Kiera over using the device to save Emily instead of letting Kiera go home, the freelancer had plenty of time to shoot. Instead, he waits until after Alec activates the device to start shooting, even though a) it was obvious from their conversation that he was going to use the device, and b) it's futile to shoot after it's been activated. For a finale that was otherwise tightly written, that part seemed overly sloppy.

Although we don't know which moment Alec set the device to send him to, my guess would be that we'll end up on the roof or in the apartment before everything spun out of control. Then again, maybe he won't end up at the moment he intended to reach, just like his son got sent farther back than Kiera.

It would seem that Alec changing the timeline is the only way to get Kiera out of the freelancers' prison, but the next season could open any number of ways. It might follow Alec after he makes the jump, it might follow Carlos as he works with Julian, or it might skip over recent events and show us the "new" timeline that Alec created by going back to save Emily, and then start doing flashbacks to that period, just as the series has done flashbacks (forwards?) to Kiera's time.

Speaking of the scenes set in the future, did Kiera's husband look different in this episode? It almost seemed like he was played by a different, older actor, or something. I couldn't put my finger on it.

Boy, hope Kiera can get "out of jail" ... just wondering how she became drugged (on the cart) as her suit is bulletproof and could have presumably gotten away from the freelancers' ...
post #667 of 738
Wasn't there a similar scene with her being drugged on a cart at the beginning of the season or the end of the last one? I got the feeling that I'd seen a scene like that previously.

I remember clearly similar scene like this one earlier this season. I thought this maybe happened before Kiera getting caught by Freelancers or they were just showing us what will happen later.


It would be trippy if she got caught several times like this in different timelines. How can Alec even save her from that prison? If he helps her by going back with short time jump and changes the near future that will never even happen.

The very first scene of Season 2 ep 1 showed her drugged, on a cart and thrown into the glass cell. Then she awoke in her bed in 2077 with a splitting headache - bad dream?????

Those two Freelancers previously used a version of her [sonic screwdriver] to turn her suit off at the demonstration before Liberat8 caught her.

I thought it was interesting that the other Liber8 fellow was apparently resurrected, as was Travis. Although she did not confirm Travis' death, and he did not get the usual return from the [Not Quite Dead].

Wasn't Travis on a cage on life support or something?

Yes, he certainly looked like he was a bit under the weather, not even conscious from what I recall.

Not really, if you think about it. biggrin.gif

Most of the denizens of this thread are Yanks. They just have access to the Canadian feed. The rest of us without such technological know-how (or a justifiable fear of contaminating our computers) will just have to wait, just like last season I guess. frown.gif

No spoilers.. I will just say "Wow" ...great start to a new season.
post #684 of 738
I just wish AVS had a hide thread feature so I son't see the 1st words of a post giving away key story elements when a series has differing airtime's like this one.

Agreed!
Almost a reboot.
Looks like the CGI budget got a boost too?

Ya, that is a problem at times. Before I get caught up on a show, some on that text reaches the eyeballs.

The last post column can be a major spoiler source.
post #687 of 738
Yep, much better then then season 2 start, however once you start to Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
mess with the time lines like this, it could be a turn off for some viewers. See "Lost"
post #688 of 738
Wow, that was awesome! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. This show has really raised its game. I wonder if the entire season will cover re-living the events of the last week of the second season? Considering how much events have changed already, I'd be all for it. I'm guessing that not everything we're seeing will be set in stone, though.

Loved it. Almost felt like a reboot. Loved the multiple timelines in the same episode, and wouldn't have minded them continuing the two branches another episode or so before bringing them back together. Kira 2.0 is certainly a little more badass and ruthless, judging by how the episode ended. (Assuming she did the deed herself? Or was it Alec's trigger happy girlfriend?) Going to be a fun third season.
post #690 of 738
I don't see any reason for Kiera to have offed herself, but I do find it particularly interesting that Emily was willing to partner with Kellog to take out Escher. That really opens up the possibilities for this season.
