Continuum really upped the badness factor on the terrorists this week. They’re just killing security guards all over the place! They’re kidnapping an old scientist guy and slapping him around! They’re not really freedom fighters! They’re monsters!!!!
The move was effective, though. Show successfully got them on my bad side and made Kiera more of a hero than a corporate goon.
Don’t get me wrong. I still don’t give a $h!t about her son and his two tuck-ins. I don’t care about her marriage yet, either. Hubby is obviously hiding something, is obviously part of whatever grand conspiracy the terrorists are part of.
Why else would he have wigged out at the sight of his wife in an otherwise safe execution chamber? Also, Hubby is guilt tripping Kiera hard about being a working mom and I can’t abide by that.
Other Continuum Thoughts:
- Good thing the engineer terrorist wears glasses. All smart people wear glasses.
- Keira’s cop suit is going to get pretty stinky, pretty soon. That fabric doesn’t look breathable. Wonder if it’s dry clean only.
No. It probably has self-cleaning tech built into it.
- I want that self-cleaning tech. My laundry is always stacked up.
- So, our terrorists accidentally went too far back in time, having originally aimed for 2071. Then the time travel device blew up instead of working properly. And the guy in charge of it neglected to pick up all the pieces…..
- Sounds like Glasses Engineer Guy isn’t as good at his work as he thought.
- I was happy to see Kiera’s hasty “I’m a cop from Portland!” lie shatter in minutes (as it rightfully should have) and I can live with the federal agent story planted by Alec.
- How long is Alec going to be able to continue working unnoticed out of his family’s barn? Someone holed up in some agency somewhere is bound to take notice. He can’t be the best of the best already.
- More development has to be done with Alec and fast. Otherwise he’s a featureless, guardian angel figure with a surly stepbrother. And that alone is boring.
