I thought it was quite good, considering they packed about three planned seasons into six episodes.

Spoiler:
Poor Kira! To come so far, to be so close to getting her heart's desire. And so many deaths to get there.

I wish this final season were longer ... seems like a lot to wrap up in just one more episode.

Yeah, I give them props for treating the end with the right amount the various emotions, I knew what I needed to see in an ending and I got that, and we got good updates on other characters we didn't see, I was satisfied.

I did love the running theme of Kellog telling folks not to trust Kellog.
Spoiler:
Him killing his daughter was an AWESOME twist I didn't see coming, gutsy move.

I found the ending very bittersweet. She got what she wanted, but can't actually have it. And the future looks to be a bright and happy one.

Good finale.

One item left me puzzled, can anyone enlighten me?

In the last episode, Jason gives Kiera a note, to give to his father (old Alec) if she made it back to her time. It seemed important, but Kiera never delivered that note. Did I place too much importance on that moment?

yes


They didn't mention it, I suspect there's a deleted scene referring to it.

Jason said the note was for the man who sent him back in time, because they were all hoping that she would be sent back to her original timeline, knowing it may not exist anymore but still hoping. I think considering the time line has changed, and that Alec (old evil corporate overlord) doesn't exist anymore, the contents of the note are no longer important to story.

Yes. Jason shouldn't have even been born, right?

One thing that bugs me about the way the show evolved is that it started off being really, really smart about time travel, and became dumber and dumber. To the point where their actions changed the future decades hence dramatically, yet not only was Kyra still born, but she still had exactly the same child.

Didn't really ruin it for me, since the show had become dumb enough (about time travel) long enough ago that I didn't really expect better. And other than the (ongoing) time travel silliness, it was a very nice wrap-up.

I kept waiting for some reveal about the identity of the Traveler. I had been thinking it was Brad, but now I think it might be Kellogg, depending on how far back Alec sent him.

Or maybe it's no one we've ever seen because his identity really isn't important.

The Traveler was from the far future, and he made a change that wiped out his utopian future and caused the dystopia that we saw Kira come from. He is a far-futurian marooned in the altered timeline, he is not any other character.

His story is the repair of the timeline and presumably Kira was the tool that accomplished his goal.

(If he were Kellog it would be interesting to learn how he gained six inches in height.)

That is not what Jason said, but perhaps what he meant.

Not born in the new timeline, but Jason and young Alec had many more years to spend together.

Jason claimed his mother was the waitress at the diner. I always thought that was suspect though.

But old Alec in the new timeline said he and Emily were together "everyday until the end", she had died by the time Kiera returned.

I thought it was odd that Kiera stopped giving a crap about her husband. If I remember correctly, she was married and had a son in the show's pilot. She's only mentioned her son since then. What have I misremembered?

Kiera's husband, Greg, worked for SadTech (future Alec's corporation), and if I remember correctly, Kiera found out he was not a very good guy.

Future old Alec Sadler is a lot taller than past young Alec Sadler
