At the end of Season 1, Keira found another time-traveller, one who has not fared so well. Everyone thinks he’s crazy, in fact. But most of Season 2 is about her trying to get home still, yet more on an advanced technological plan with Alec to find a way for him to power the device. She is also dealing with more of the separation from her family, including her husband.
Episodes That I Liked
Episode 8 (Second Listen) shows flashbacks to when she met the future Alec Sadler while in the company of Garza posing as a prostitute. Equally, the second last episode E12 (Second Last, yep) is pretty good as it basically looks like everything is coming together for Keira, just before it all goes to crap. Both EPs are outstanding, and I rated them both 5/5.
Another 9 episodes are solid 4s for me on the rating scale, and my rating of the season overall…E01 has Alec getting a message from the future; E02 is a prison break; E04 introduced another time-traveller, one of Keira’s partners from the future. Except she was sent WAY farther back in time and is now old and dying. E05 went in a different direction, with the suit and internal “implant” triggering a psych eval for Keira by hologram. Very Star Trek-like, actually, but quite cool. In E06, Keira finally decides to share some truths about her origins. Not that she is believed. E07 deals with some data nodes for info, E10 has Garza getting captured, and E11 has Lucas going a bit nutty. Liber8 is falling apart with a less-than-clear mission anymore.
And the final episode lays the groundwork for S3 and 4 — that there are other entities using time travel to either preserve time or profit from it.
Episodes That Were Watchable
E03 deals with free will and Keira, and whether drugs can be a temporary escape. But E09 asks questions about the original Theseus starting a revolution, and whether one should kill him in order to stop Liber8 from ever starting. The EPs weren’t exactly bad, but they never quite fit the rest of the storyline as well nor advanced the plot much.
Episodes That I Didn’t Like
Again, as with Season 1, there weren’t any episodes that I didn’t like. The series just continued to rock.
