Surprisingly the issue of Kiera not being Linda Williams from Portland comes up in this episode. The writers could have let this go on for an episode or two, but it’s actually better that they have moved onto the next cover. Now Kiera is operating under her own name, and she is a federal agent who gets basically ushered into the taskforce that is going to be hunting the terrorists from the future. Do you think this means that Kiera’s identity is safe for now?
There is a little couple scenes that take place in the future. Not much happens in them, but honestly if too much did it would be distracting. It’s great to get a little bit of an explanation of all the tech that Kiera has, as well as how cops or protectors are told to operate. The guy who gave Kiera her tech and orientation on her first day as a protector says “Instincts are good. What’s going to make you a great protector is the tech.” Hopefully this means that the writers are going to show either Kiera relying on the tech too much or a time where she will have to rely on her instincts instead. That line is too great not to be used to show more of what kind of cop Kiera is, especially when she is trapped in the present. Would you like to see Kiera operate without the tech?
Here are quick thoughts on elsewhere in the episode. Alec and Kiera’s relationship is becoming one of the absolute best things about this show. He helps her not only protect her cover but also interprets the present day lingo and teaches her how to use a car. Their relationship gives moments of humor and of heart. Right now the scenes spent with the terrorists are mostly informative and not the most interesting thing in the world, but the viewers need to see them. Kiera temporarily joins forces with the terrorists in order to get herself closer to home (even though she would still be a couple years in the past in terms of where she started). This isn’t surprising, but what this storyline does start to set up is more of an acceptance in Kiera that she is never going to make it home. Does anyone else love Alec and Kiera?
