Lucas: “Here’s a tip. Take action. Man up. You are the author of your own destiny. Act like it.”
“Power Hour” is the September 25 episode of “Continuum.” Be sure to check out the slideshow for more quotes from the episode. The final season of “Continuum” airs Friday nights at 10 p.m. CT on Syfy.
Remember how Alec said there needed to be a game plan? There still isn’t one.
Kiera is still looking out for herself while the rest of the team is focused on destroying Kellog. Alec’s shock over Kiera’s focus on her own mission was weird. He has talked to Kiera about getting her home, and he knows how much she wants it. Alec really shouldn’t have been surprised.
What was surprising is how Carlos has been kicked out of the group. When did we stop trusting Carlos? Sure, the police have always been held at arm’s length but not Carlos. He’s trustworthy, certainly more trustworthy than Brad.
Brad, Brad, Brad, it’s basically impossible to trust you. Sure, the fact that Kiera does earns you some points, but you haven’t really done anything to win anyone else’s trust. It was interesting to hear everyone’s view on the Brad issue. Travis even agrees with Carlos about Brad, and that’s just plain shocking. What’s your take on Brad?
Garza and Kiera went on a mission together, and during it, the differences in how the two of them operate became very clear. Garza is all about destroying danger onsite, while Kiera wants to think things out and worries about all the civilians, no matter if they are innocents or evil foot soldiers. Should Kiera have allowed Garza to blow up the building?
After spending most of the recon mission expecting Garza to die, Lucas death came as such a shock. This is Lucas! He is an adorable puppy dog. His death was just gut wrenching, and it added another reason to the “don’t trust Brad” column. What will you miss most about Lucas?
Hopefully, his death will mean something. There needs to be something that comes from this, whether it’s Kiera finally realizing the threat at hand or Kellog learning that he can’t trust the future him. Killing Lucas off just for shock value is not an option.
One thing Lucas’ death has already done is it brought Travis and Kiera closer together, which was awesome but strange. Their conversation felt forced and stiff, but still, it was cool to see Travis mentoring Kiera. He gave her a pep talk. The line between Liber8 and Kiera has been blurring all season, and this one conversation just about wiped it away.
It’s not easy to always make the right choices or do what’s best. Often times you sit and debate if you really should be working at this job or if you should maybe branch out and do something different. Worrying about the choices you make is part of life.
Alec and Julian are struggling with these same issues, except they know how it could turn out, and it’s not pretty. It’s almost an “East of Eden” type scenario where they are trying to forge their own path while worrying about inheriting the sins of their fathers, but they are actually worrying about the sins that they committed in another future, another timeline.
Alec and Julian working on trying to better themselves and the future not only provided great character moments, but it reminded us of what the future looked like back when this all began. As much as “Continuum” is about Kiera and Liber8 achieving their goals, it’s also about Alec and Julian trying to decide what future is best for them.
