Liber8 attempts to eliminate Kiera by killing her ancestor, while Kellog’s duplicity complicates events.
The interplay between Kiera and Lily worked reasonably well, and I wish we had seen more of it. I also liked that the show began to further explore some key questions. Did someone plan to send Kiera to the past? And can the future be changed?
People, within and outside the police department, take an awful lot on faith from our protagonist.
Originality: 2/6 The episode even references Terminator directly– and Terminator was already derivative.
Story: 4/6 The writing is uneven, but this week’s plot had better focus than some of the previous episodes.
Emotional Response: 4/6
