continuum-season-four-dvdOriginally planned as a 7-10 season run by creator Simon Barry, Continuum came to a bit of an unceremonious end in its shortened Fourth, and final, Season. It’s sad as the show, which had struggled doing so much heavy lifting in its First Season in setting up the complicated time travel storyline of future cop Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols), had finally begun to pay off in the show’s Second and Third seasons.

Putting aside Keira’s increasingly nebulous relationship with the future terrorist she came back in time to stop, and the complicated subplot involving the Freelancers, the final six episodes deals primarily with the soldier’s from Brad‘s (Ryan Robbins) time and their plans on changing history to better fit their liking. The highlight of the season is the show’s final episode “Final Hour” but, because of such time constraints, the lead-up to the final episode feels rushed (especially for a show that moved so glacially slow during its First Season).

continuum-lost-hours-1

Continuum begins its shortened final season with a big shift for its heroine. By last season’s finale Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) had finally come to terms with helping to create a better future than the one she was separated from. The arrival of Brad‘s (Ryan Robbins) fellow soldiers from an even bleaker future controlled by Kellog (Stephen Lobo) who knock the Protector into a hallucinatory reunion with her son reignites Keira’s desire to make it back home. It’s a pretty quick one-eighty (even if it may be necessary given the limited time remaining to wrap-up the show’s various storylines), and it also stunts some of Kiera’s growth as a character over the past couple of seasons.

continuum-season-three-blu-ray

The Third Season of Continuum is a promise fulfilled as the show’s central character finally begins to question the role in which she’s been assigned to track down terrorists from the future who hope to remake the world into something more than the corporate oligarchy where she comes from. Alliances would change, friendships would be destroyed, two Alec Sadlers (Erik Knudsen) fight for control of futuristic technologies, and Kiera Cameron‘s (Rachel Nichols) belief in her mission would eventually be shaken to its core.

Highlights of the season include Kiera turning on the Freelancers, an episode set in her past involving Kiera tracking down Kagame (Tony Amendola) and Liber8, the season finale which sets up an entire new set of problems for our heroine, the reveal of the true identity of Kiera’s new friend (Ryan Robbins), Dillon (Brian Markinson) choosing to use his daughter to infiltrate Liber8, the death of a major supporting character, and Kiera choosing which Alec to betray.

continuum-3-minutes-to-midnight

“3 Minutes to Midnight” offers answers and revelations to several characters but no one likes what they learn. Discovering Brad (Ryan Robbins) is missing, Kiera (Rachel Nichols) beings searching for her John Doe time traveler whose memories of his past are slowly returning. By the end of the episode both Kiera and Liber8 will know the truth about Brad and his alternate dystopian future of what Liber8’s “winning” truly looks like. Captured and tortured by Liber8 alongside Kiera, the truth of Brad’s story does far more damage to the terrorists’ movement than any action the Protector has taken over the past three seasons.

Taking the death of Betty (Jennifer Spence) particularly hard, Carlos (Victor Webster) shares the secret of the dead Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) with Alec (Erik Knudsen). Already burdened with the struggles to get HALO off the ground and the fact that Kellog (Stephen Lobo) is suing him for freezing him out and going to work for Piron, Alec doesn’t take the news that Kiera hid the existence of her dead double very well (even though the discovery of the body does help solve one of his problems).

Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) finds herself in the unenviable task of disproving Liber8‘s responsibility for an anti-corporate attack that leaves 12 dead and appears to fit their modus operandi (at least on the surface). Paired with Dillon (Brian Markinson) who is all too eager to pin the chemical attack on Fermitas on the terrorist group, Kiera enlists the help of Betty (Jennifer Spence) to dig a bit deeper and even receives a visit from Garza (Luvia Petersen) who claims Liber8 is being framed for the crime.
