Yes they are "end justifies the means" Timecops. I did not predict that being their role. Aren't they messing things up themselves? They killed Gardiner. There must have been a cleaner way to stop his investigation.
Did we actually see what happened with Jason's encounter with the Freelancer? Is this how he went back?

The thing is the Liber8, if they didn't use such terrible means, could be the heroes in their story. The time in the future is not a utopia. There are a lot of bad things then and Sadler was trying to fix them.
I think most watchers before this episode suspected that Jason really was Sadler's son. It was nice to see that confirmed.
It was also nice that Carlos finally figured out what Betty was up to, but didn't turn her in. And then he goes to join Theseus?
Now I know how Kiera was put as public enemy #1, though it doesn't much matter at the moment. She might have been better off telling more of the truth to Dillon. I think the Freelancers would still have grabbed her, but at least some of what Carlos was saying (and she might have said) would have been born out.
So, Alec went back in time to save Emily. That was a wild twist. I wonder just when he went back? How it is going to work with two of him if it is in his past?
And why was that Freelancer who had infiltrated LIber8 still alive? And why hadn't he stopped them in the first place?
How many cliffhangers?
1. Liber8, Kiera, Jason (and Escher?) trapped by the Freelancers
2. Carlos working with Theseus
3. If Kiera does get out, what will be her and Carlos' status in the 21st century?
4. Sadler's trip to save Emily
5. Is Travis dead? It looked like he was also trapped and on some device by the Freelancers
6. The fate of Dillon's police group?
7. Betty's fate?
