It seems everyone got the same memo to start this showdown with Escher. There is so much double crossing and secret deals happening. Seriously, everyone is making a deal with someone, and it is a deal that not even the viewers really know about. Now, normally backstabbing and deals coming to light are exciting and create some suspense. This is still true in this episode, but only to an extent. There is too much confusion in this episode because viewers are trying to figure out all the deals that were made. A couple of the deals could have been shown to the viewers, and it would have helped. Did you get confused?
There’s a bit of time travel at the end, and surprisingly it doesn’t involve anyone going to 2077. The flash forward scenes set the stage for Kiera going back at the very end. It would have made sense, but instead, the writers go a different direction, creating a great twist. Alec takes the device and goes to save Emily. What’s really interesting about Alec’s decision is that he does what he accuses Kiera of: being selfish. As he points out, Kiera has been doing everything for her family, even though sometimes that is not the best decision. In the end, Alec makes a choice to save his love, Emily. Hopefully the writers will bring this fact up whenever Alec and Kiera are reunited. Did Alec surprise you?
Here are quick thoughts on elsewhere in the episode. Carlos making the decision to join Julian makes great sense, and it is one of those things were you are ashamed you didn’t consider the possibility. He has always been the moral compass of the police department, but now he realizes being a cop doesn’t mean the same thing now as it did when he joined. It will be interesting to watch his relationship with Julian. Right now, it’s hard to figure out what Escher being Alec’s dad, and Jason being Alec’s son means in terms of the alliances. One of the biggest twists is that Dillon has a handbook for CPS aka City Protective Services. Kiera was CPS in 2077. Now is this on schedule or are things speeding up?
