Sonya: “I've told you that you are important and that you’ll do great things, but you don’t seem to believe me.”
Julian: “That’s because most of what you say is psychotic.”
“The Dying Minutes” is the June 20 episode of "Continuum." Warning: this article does contain spoilers for tonight's episode. Be sure to check out the slideshow for more quotes from the episode. The season finale of “Continuum" airs next Friday night at 9 p.m. CT on Syfy.
Let’s take a minute to appreciate the fact that we finally get some Curtis answers. He was somehow cured or well “merged” by the original time traveler, you know the one who traveled all the way back in time to start the freelancers. Side note: the original time traveler looks a little like Kellog. Am I crazy or do you see it to? Anyways, we don't know much about this original time traveler. It is a little annoying that the episode that we find out about him, we also learn that somehow Kiera has pieced it together too. When did she figure that out?
We see such a softer side to Sonya in this episode. I only wish we got to hear more of her talking about why she is doing what she is doing, but of course, that would take away from the shock factor. I’m glad that we got to see her with Julian being honest about him and the future. Her chat with Kiera is great because there isn't any venom in Sonya's words like there normally is, so it is a very different dynamic between them. It would have been great if there was a one on one scene with Kiera and Sonya before Dillon strolled in.
There are still some things I do not fully understand. Sonya seems to have been preparing for her final moments with Dillon. I doubt she wanted her Piron trip to fail, but maybe she was going to turn herself in afterwards. It’s unclear, just as it is that Dillon is dead. Okay, so it didn't look good for his survival, but the reaction is very quiet. For me, I was still confused as to whether or not he was alive (we did see a guy wheeled out that was not in a body bag) until Kellog made a comment about being down a board member.
Kiera and Future!Alec are reunited at last, and they spend the entire episode breaking my heart. Seriously, I want to go rewatch the show from the beginning just to relive the days when Kiera and Alec were best buddies. There’s a nice chat where Kiera tries to explain herself, and Future!Alec just shuts her down. The idea that Future!Alec and Emily are actually going to run off in the sunset is nice, but come on, we know that’s not going to happen even if we didn't see the Alec showdown in the finale preview.
Brad and Kiera are getting closer and holding hands and things, and I don’t like it. I just don’t buy their romance. I see more of a spark between Kiera and Kellog, honestly. Brad is someone that Kiera can go up against the Freelancers with, so it is nice that she doesn't go in there alone. The Brad and Kiera teaming up, though, is taking away from the Carlos and Kiera scenes. Their partnership is a great part of the show, and it is sad that we only really see them touch base in this episode, and not really work anything out as partners.
What did you think of the episode? I can’t believe the finale is next week. Leave me your thoughts in a comment below.
