Kiera: “Do not do this.”
Kagame: “Have you forgotten your history lessons? It’s already done.”
“Endtime” is the season finale of Continuum. Warning this article does contain spoilers. To refresh your memory on what happened last time, click here. Continuum airs on Syfy, channel 60 for Houstonians.
As it turns out, there are other time travelers present in 2012. Kiera meets one named Jason, who apparently landed in 1992. He mentions other “freelancers” that also traveled back. This is an interesting twist that complicates the situation that Kiera is in. The writers made a good call by expanding the world of 2012 because otherwise Liber8 could have become overused and tired out. Now the writers have new agendas and people to manipulate. It’s unclear what role this freelancers play, whether they are just there accidentally and trying to survive, or if they came back with a purpose like Liber8. One thing is clear, this Mr. Escher is looking out for Kiera. He is high up in some government agency, making sure that Kiera’s cover stays intact. What are your theories? Do you like this new twist?
So maybe Julian isn’t Kagame. Honestly, it’s all a bit confusing, but in a good way. The writers are clearly playing with the viewers, giving them snippets that make them believe they know who everyone is in both the past and future, and then changing it all by revealing something else. Sonya goes and meets Kagame when he is born, so it is clear that Julian isn’t Kagame. Also, apparently Kagame is carrying out Alec’s plans, and from the prison scene in the flash to the future, Julian is working with Kagame who is working with Alec. Are you confused yet? Hopefully the new season will work on revealing more of who everyone is and what their alliances are.
Since this is the finale, let’s do a bit of a season one evaluation, shall we? First off, this show surpassed my expectations. It isn’t flawless, but it didn’t fall into some obvious traps. Carlos and Kiera don’t end up having this romantic entanglement, and it’s great that the writers are using Carlos to help Kiera make connections in 2012, by having him as a friend. It’s really interesting that he doesn’t earn her big secret in the finale. By no means does he need to know, but it wouldn’t have been shocking if somehow the finale showed him finding out. Hopefully in the next season, the writers will work on expanding more of the other characters. They gave viewers an episode centered on Carlos and Alec, and so it would be nice to get to know more about the people who work at the precinct or maybe just continue to develop Carlos’s life outside of work. What do you hope for in season two, and what are your thoughts on season one as a whole?
