This Episode was awesome. So much goodness, I dont know where to start at this hour. Except, Itīs On!
This is the first time I noticed that Lucas is supposed to be crazy, so far I always thought of him as possibly missunderstood, but he made very clear tonight what his objective is and it sure aint rational. You couldnt save my mother, therefor I will spent the rest of my life destroying you and proof that I am better. Sorry, but thats a pretty idiotic reasoning for a Genius, though as they say the border to Nutjob is not that far off.
I am very happy to see Skyes mother alive. She will possibly not survive the Attack on Terra Nova, but still it is awesome that Taylor came through for them and now they also have a new cure to a serious illness.
What do you guys think? Will Hope Plaza protect Terra Nova? I kind of doubt it, at least logically no "normal" human being would reject the possibility of making their own World better. Even at the cost of another World. There is a reason Humanity has been described as parasite in many Stories so far.
There may be some in the future that wish to protect terra nova, on the other hand.....they also likely see the project as exclusionary and likely a bunch of people that used/abused connections to get a 'fantastic future while i'm stuck here in hell'...in other words resentment and a 'i want a piece of that' feeling.
there is a very definite amount of power in the hands of those that want to 'own the future by controlling the past'. They want access to riches and wealth by, quite literally, raiding hte past. 'I don't care if it ruins the planet, i want to mine oxygen or gold or diamonds and make myself richer'. And I'm willing to bet these folks have a lot of control and power. Heck, they were able to rig a whole pilgrimage.
I do think the only way terra nova can survive is if there are no more pilgrimages. Taylor destroys the portal. saving their future by cutting them off from the future and locking them into the past.
If they destroy the portal, couldn't they just connect again? An tought, if it is permenently shut, i believe that it would affect only this reality. Shouldn't they have to reconnect? What are the chances of they reconnecting to the same alternate reality?

maybe he meant just the "receiver" device would be destroyed and that like the 4th pilgrimage, they could still come back through, but maybe end up in the lake again....
He could have been bluffing, but if he didnt that puts up a new question. Why wouldnt Taylor want to be cut off from the Future? Pilgramages and supplies are nice and well, but by now they have enough People to build stuff on their own. At this point I would try everything to get that fracture shut one way or another.
Great episode. I can't wait to see what goes down in the 2-hour finale.

the way I see it they are going to have to find a way to cut themselves off permanently from the future to avoid the new world being mined for resources from the future.. They have no choice and I agree that they should have enough people now to start a new civilization on their own. As stated above they'd be cut off from supplies from 2149 but they won't want for food whatsover, they'll just be more low tech but that might not be a bad thing. How many people do they have now, anyway?
Really liked this one! Also noticed that the writer was Barbara Marshall who wrote ''Sabotage'' of SGU. Looking forward to the SEASON (HOPE!) final next week!
1. Skye has been wrapped up - fairly straightforward though I can't blame Taylor for being po'd.
2. Lucas Taylor - completely insane!
3. Nice save of Skye's Mum!
4. Now we have a rumble.
Ah finally, a real good ep. Took long enough. Hopefully it won't be a one off and they can keep it up. Skye finally became an interesting character in the last couple eps. But now that they found her out and she has no secrets I wonder what they'll do with her now. I hope she doesn't go back the way. I don't know if it's just me but Josh is just annoying being there. Don't really like that character one bit. To me he has no redeeming qualities. Taylor was awesome as always I was always kinda wondering about Lucas's mental state. He really is nuts.
Now that the show has finally stepped up a notch or few, I hope they can keep it up.
