Alec: “You leave and there is no one else here to stop the others from continuing to change history. There’s every chance that you return to 2077 to find nobody waiting for you, no Greg, no Sam, maybe nothing at all.”
Kiera: “I can’t accept that, Alec, and I won’t.”

Alec and Emily go through some hard times in this episode. It starts out well enough for them, Alec agrees to join Emily as she flees the country. Alec’s decision doesn’t really feel right. He wouldn’t leave Kiera like that, especially after him giving her the speech about if she leaves there won’t be anyone to fight Liber8. By having Alec decide this, it makes him sound like the lovesick fool that Kellog believes he is. There really didn’t need to be the moment of Emily announcing she was running away. The writers could have handled that differently. Do you think it made sense for Alec to want to run away with Emily?
Speaking of Emily, this is a big episode for her. She comes clean to Alec about the truth about how they met. Plus, Kellog announces some information that he found out about Emily, formerly known as Maya. There’s a lot uncovered about Emily, which immediately sets off red flags. As soon as the shootout in Jason’s loft begins, it’s not hard to figure out that someone is going to die, and that person is going to be Emily. Honestly, she is expendable, and since she dies for her love, it is going to set Alec on a certain, most likely dark, trajectory. Will you miss Emily?
Here are quick thoughts on elsewhere in the episode. Gardiner’s body is found stuffed in his trunk, and obviously the number one person of interest is Kiera. What’s interesting about all of this is Carlos is also in the cross hairs. He is believed to be involved in a cover up, which is a strange accusation, especially coming from Dillon. It will be interesting to see how (if) this is resolved in the next episode. Travis is fully functional again. He’s got a super suit and his CMR is up and running. This could mean equal playing field between Travis and Kiera. What’s annoying is that Travis doesn’t seem to be concerned about Garza anymore. He doesn’t even mention her. Travis wants the suit to get to Escher, well at least according to Kellog. What did you think of the episode?
