At the end of Season 2, Alec had to make a choice, and it created consequences for everyone. Now there is semi-evil Alec and semi-good Alec, although it isn’t always clear which one is the good guy and which one is the bad guy. And other entities are interested in time travel for their own purposes.
Episodes That I Liked
The episodes that stand out for the season are E01 where Keira is looking for any sort of connection with anyone, feeling lost and alone; E09 where a new time traveller appears, feeling much like John Connor from Terminator; E11, where you see that the “real” future isn’t really as great as Keira might have been deluding herself into believing; and E13 where the two Alecs have to face off against each other. But are they changing the future? Or merely fulfilling it?
Episodes That Were Watchable
I rated 5 episodes as 4 stars (E2, 3, 6, 7, & 8), mostly ones having fun with double the Alecs and double the Keiras, and the introduction of the Gleaners as one of the other entities.
Episodes That I Didn’t Like
Three episodes fell to the “3/5” rating for me, and I didn’t think they really did much for the series. E04 had some student protests turning violent, E05 had Travis shifting tactics to go on national TV, and E12 had people asking who has Alec? And which Alec do they have?

The Bottom Line
