The Ultimate Guide for any fan of the Continuum TV Series

This episode was formally known as 2 Minute Warning.
After the massive curtain drop last week, Continuum was obviously on the precipice of yet another massive change, but did anyone expect so many casualties as it made its way back down? It was like it took a zip line as it continued its trek north and tossed most of the characters off to splatter onto the forest floor.
It wasn't minor characters, either. An entire faction has been completely wiped out, and a couple of the most loved characters in the series decided to make sure they left in true style. This is definitely not the changes I had in mind when Brad broke the news last week.
Honestly, I can't stand it when writers kill off loved characters in the fashion, especially with the frequency we have been seeing lately. This is part of the reason I can't stand Game of Thrones and refuse to ever touch certain books. I understand that death brings a sense of realism to the story, especially when dealing with violent situations like Continuum has, but did we really have to lose so many characters so quickly? How are we going to have the time to grieve for them? Even the surviving characters didn't even flinch at what happened, yet. It's like everyone is in shock.
With so many huge characters dying, it almost feels like yet another reset is on its way. It doesn't help that even more characters are heading off into different directions. And here I thought Brad's news was finally going to reunite them... I am very disappointed.
At least Piron and their malicious plans are going to be hurt from all this. While I think seeing the evil Alec Sadler create a zombie apocalypse by releasing a bugged Halo would be entertaining, I would be just as satisfied with another Alec vs. Alec standoff that tears everything asunder. I'm sure our "heroes" probably have another method to rock Halo with fear, too, so it's very likely that the company is doomed to fail.
Then there is the partial reveal of the quantum man (until we know who he is, that's what I'm calling him) which leaves us with more questions than answers. When is he from? Could he be a soldier in that time war that Katherine mentioned? Could that war be why the future is always doomed to be full of destruction, pain and death? I hope we will get more information next week and not have to wait until a yet to be announced season four to find out.
