    Good start to the season.

    So immediately after the events of last season, Rittenhouse blew up Mason Industries and Lucy assumed Wyatt and Rufus were dead so she plans to work with her mother to infiltrate and destroy Rittenhouse.

    Meanwhile, we find out Wyatt and Rufus were not killed, but the whole Mason Industries team has been hiding out at an undisclosed location while trying to repair the Lifeboat. Once the Lifeboat is repaired, they can see that the Mothership has gone back to 1918 France in the middle of WWI so Wyatt and Rufus jump in the Lifeboat to hopefully go find Lucy.

    Now we've got Rittenhouse sleeper agents seeded throughout history, the mastermind of this Rittenhouse plan brought 100 years into the future, and Garcia Flynn in the custody of Mason Industries and potentially willing to work with them if he can talk to Lucy.

    Great setup. Excited to see where things go this season. Ratings for the premiere were not great so I think we can probably assume that S2 will likely be the last.

    Thanks for the recap. I didn't remember how it ended last season, and got a little confused. It's funny how they meet someone famous, like Marie Curie and act all starstruck around her. :D (not that I wouldn't do the same thing)

    Too bad they couldn’t convince her that radiation IS bad for you. Of course, by that time, it was probably already too late.

    I am impressed with the budget for this show. All those period set pieces, extras in uniform and weapon rentals don’t come cheap.

    I’m afraid we’ll end up with a cliffhanger ending and the series won’t get picked up again. They’ll end up lost in time.

    Great start to the season. Is this the first time Lucy had to kill an innocent person? I’m pretty sure she’s had to kill before, but as Arnie said in True Lies, “they were all bad.”

    I think this is the first time Lucy had to kill someone. I agree on a great start to the season and lets hope it continues for more than one more season

    I know Rufus has had to kill someone. I guess I just assumed Lucy had to as well.

    I remember Rittenhouse blowing up Mason Industries but I assumed the lifeboat and key personnel were there and destroyed or killed. Apparently that didn't happen but it almost seems like a "deus ex machina" event!!

    It certainly raises the question how Agent Christopher could get the damaged Lifeboat and a bunch of injured people out of the blast site and stashed away at a secure facility without anyone from Rittenhouse knowing the Lifeboat and those people survived the blast.

    I was thinking the same thing, and as Wyatt was standing in the hatch of the Lifeboat when the bomb went off how did he only have comparatively minor injuries on his back?? Also, the Lifeboat had no apparent interior damage even though the open hatch was facing the bomb

    Yeah, at least if he had closed the door, which I was expecting him to do, it would have been more believable.

    Ack. I hate stand-offs with guns. So why the heck didn't Wyatt just shoot Emma before she knew he was even there? Instead, he gives away the upper hand and threatens the soldier? Then lets them go in the time machine to go do whatever they want? Really? Utter stupidity.

    A thought on that, I wonder how much of it is CGI?? I know I was surprised when I found out that Sanctuary was 98% CGI and even after knowing that there were only a few scenes where it was obvious

    I was just looking at it again and you can spot the CGI sections pretty easily. The aerial dogfights and the shot where Lucy and mom look down in the valley at the war, pretty obvious.

    The camp scenes, day and night, with the period costumes, vehicles, horses and extras, that’s all live action.

    It wasn’t quite as impressive as the first viewing. They could have probably shot the location scenes in a couple of days or less. Maybe 50-75 extras, tents, weapons and equipment rental. It would somewhat expensive, but much less so that creating the background atmosphere in a computer.

    But still, it was quite a bit of effort for a tv show, considering all the setups and even a full blown fire gag.

    Yeah, but then you’ve lost that whole storyline about the soldier brought into the future and whatever high jinks he gets into.

    In the "previously on", they showed Rufus' GF (Jaya?) go throw a time change or something like that (the world changed because someone/something changed the timeline). I don't remember what that was about. Can someone recap that part?

    Is she going through time or something?
