Continuum - Split Second

After a recent prison riot in which Travis (Roger R. Cross) kills six prisoners, Inspector Dillon (Brian Markinson) decides to move the Liber8 member before things escalate any further. To do this Kiera (Rachel Nichols) and Carlos (Victor Webster) will have to find a way to work with Agent Gardner (Nicholas Lea) who has been reassigned to the Liber8 task force. Despite not wanting Travis saved, Sonya (Lexa Doig) organizes a Liber8 extraction during the prison transfer who don’t fall for the decoy convoy, putting Kiera and Carlos in serious danger and making everyone wonder if there isn’t a mole inside the department (who Gardner wrongly suspects is Kiera).

Holding off the first attempt to rescue Travis, things get infinitely more complicated when Garza (Luvia Petersen), suspecting the truth that Sonya doesn’t really want Travis freed, empties the Liber8 weapons cache and makes a play for him on her own. With Garza and Travis reunited, Sonya’s control of Liber8 is destroyed and she is forced to go on the run with Lucas (Omari Newton). Dillon also has to take the heat for loosing their prisoner. Given his constant attacks on her, and the fact that the mole knew just enough to make both Kiera and Carlos look bad, Kiera begins to question whether or not Gardner is Liber8’s mole inside the department.

“Split Second” includes flashbacks of Sonya and Travis’ relationship to remind viewers how close the pair once were and how Sonya once sacrificed everything for the man she loved.  How times change. In the episode’s B-story Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen) is approached by Kellog (Stephen Lobo) who offers the genius an alternative to his new wage slave job by coming to work for the Liber8 deserter and his new technology company. Although initially declining the offer, Alec reconsiders after getting a good hard look at his present form of employment and comparing it to the endless possibilities that Kellog offers. I have a feeling we won’t have to wait long to see how quickly the fallout of their partnership begins to threaten Kiera’s future.
