"How will this end?"
"In fire."

So that's what Kosh was talking about.

Agreed. I only really started caring in the last two eps.

Unresolved? Umm, those are called cliffhangers, or continuing plot for (the likely nonexistent) next season?

I don't expect every season of a show to have a pat ending.

That was a cliffhanger? The main plot's been resolved, and all the loose threads are just minor threads that won't carry it for another season. I'm certainly not antsy to see another season just to have those resolved.

No, if they wanted a real cliffhanger, they could've had the shipping truck drive off, halt and catch fire (see what I did there?). The scene closes with Joe stepping out of the burning truck.

Now THAT would be a cliffhanger - WTF just happened here...?

Interesting. I wonder if Lee Pace will be back and if so, how they'll write his character back in. Since we don't know whether Gordon knows it was Joe that burned the shipment, maybe Joe could just show back up after his walkabout and would still be in good standing.

To me, this is a show that needs to start season two a few years after season 1. Maybe at the start of the internet age (early 90s perhaps?) I don't think there's anything interesting to talk about with clones and even that company. It could start say, in 1992, with the new software company that was started by Cameron now a successful dot com company, maybe an early ISP, or browser developer like Netscape, or an AOL type company. Lee Pace's character could still be trying to find his niche, maybe he's a recovering alcoholic trying to get back "in the game" (someone like Don Draper who I always thought the character was trying to be like). Gordon could be running Cardiff and working on some new amazing OS to compete with Windows and Mac. I think doing that would give this a fresh look instead of going back to the same stale story that's been told already.

One of the main characters at a completely different company isn't a cliffhanger?

I was under the impression that Joe is going trespass and break into someone bussiness. I think he had a map, and knew where he was going.

I think the story now is going to be about Cameron and Gordon's wife and what they develope.

They will need Gordon's company in order to sell it.

Everyone will need whatever Joe steal.

Season Two.

Season Two.
He pulled up to that gas station and asked about the Fiske Observatory (so he's in Colorado). During the conversation, they mentioned a woman who lives up there and only comes into town occasionally for supplies. We get the sense that Joe knows the woman, probably his mother or a former wife/girlfriend. He's not going there to steal something. I think he's on a bit of a walkabout to do some soul searching and figure out who he is and what he wants because clearly the track he was on leading up to that didn't accomplish what he had hoped. Clearly he thinks that visiting this woman will help him with this quest to find himself.

I'm just not sure how they re-incorporate him back into the show in S2. Gordon isn't going to want Joe anywhere near Cardiff. Cameron and Donna, assuming they know what Joe did, aren't going to want Joe anywhere near their company. So is S2 about Joe competing against Gordon and/or Cameron?

No. They simply mentioned a woman lived at the observatory and it seemed clear that Joe knew the woman and that's why he was going to the observatory. Given all the stuff throughout the season about his relationship with his mom, I think we can speculate that he's going to see his mother. But it was never stated.

could be that he'll end up joining Cam's side and then it'll be them vs. the IBM machine, making the next "apple"

Well, that's why I said I "thought". I don't have the recording anymore.. I just remembered that while watching it, it seemed _to me_ that he was going to find his mother.

I liked how it ended and the concept of the "girls vs. the boys" next season is a great premise to me.

How would it be "girls vs. boys?" I see the "girls" part since Donna joined Cameron's company. But Joe quite literally burned his bridge with Gordon and Cardiff, so I'm not sure how they're going to get Joe and Gordon back on the same team.

I finally spun through the last four episodes. I actually liked them. I guess I'm keeping the SP through next year.
