Continuum - Rush Hour
Yes Kellog, people can travel through time.
Stop the presses!
Okay, I'm having a little fun at Kellog's expense. He of all people should know people can travel through time. It's that his current era is time travel challenged at least from a starting point.
Kellog was reacting to Curtis' revelation that the opportunity to send Kiera back home will manifest itself soon.
Kellog is in possession of a device but the rest of the technology so far has been out of his reach.
Well, for one thing, there is the introduction of the Traveler as a major player.
Kellog drops the hint there is something special about the Traveler and it's not that he has experienced time travel or knows something intimately about it. It's that there is something physical about him.
Is he some sort of beacon? Is there something about him that is attuned to time travel much like birds are wired to fly south in the winter and north in the summer?
Is the Traveler capable of time migration?
It seems he can't do it without a device or he'd be flashing about here and now.
What of the opportunity Curtis speaks of? If it's news to Kellog that time travel is suddenly at his doorstep has there been a development?
We all know Alec has a device too and we also know he needs access to Kellog's tech. So what brings all these things together?
Why wouldn't he directly answer Emily's "Am I your mother" question?
I instantly grew suspicious of him. Sure he is a little kooky but I think he is hiding something. He's the wildcard that is going to bring Kellog and Alec together.
I have no doubt it is the mother angle.
What was all the talk about Emily "catching a cold" is it a metaphor for getting pregnant?
Is that what spooked Emily into leaving? She claims she is a lightening rod for the wrong kind of attention but I think it is something more. Perhaps by leaving Alec she'll avoid becoming pregnant. But if that is true then there will be no Jason. Does she want to change the timeline by not becoming pregnant? Is that what Jason wants too? Jason seemed to be deliberately obtuse about the mother question and that is why I think he is hiding something.
How about Emily is already pregnant?
That's the real reason why she's on the run. To protect her unborn child. To protect Jason.
That's why Jason was being so obtuse. He can't alter the timeline by telling Emily too much.
I think she got the hint Jason.
I Owe You Dept.
Dillon saved Carlos. (Hey, Dillon is back!)
Kiera saves Kellog.
Oh, and of course, Carlos saves Kiera.
Do you think all these I.O.U.'s will be called upon? Count on it. It's Karma.
Oh Kiera, too soon, too soon! Don't be gloating yet.
Wrong Alec, you will have to be that asshole again.
That final sequence where Alec watches Emily walk out on his life. It is no coincidence that we see Alec reflected in the glass. Two Alecs. One being that inner asshole that he has been trying to avoid.
You can't escape karma Alec. That inner asshole will come in useful.
Kiera and Alec hear Alec's phone scream in pain. It's his Kellog alert. Hilarious.
This is a bit karmic too. Don't taunt Travis Kellog. You'll see him again.
I got a laugh out of Travis' face too just before Carlos rams him. Yaaaa!
This is bullshit. That little black dress looked awful on Rachel Nichols. You have no taste Kellog.
Rachel Nichols can wear a dress my friend. Try red next time.
Odds and Ends
It seemed to me Carlos was trying to convince Kiera to stick around in his time. Her response to returning to the future was, "In a heartbeat." That's cold Kiera, Carlos was reaching out to you.
What about Brad? Does he make it back to the future with you?
I'm counting the water imagery/metaphors this season. I think there is something to this.
I love how the Continuum Scooby gang get together for beers and food. Other shows have their players split apart. These guys chill with each other. Kiera has a wine, Emily and Julian knock back a brewskie. It's awesome.
Karma Part Two Dept.
