Continuum Season 2 Episode 1 "Continuum" fans, rejoice: the hugely popular sci-fi show about a foxy cop from the future is back this weekend with Season 2. Last season's action-packed finale left the show's die-hard fans eager for more. Star Rachel Nichols, who plays main character and cop-from-the-future Kiera, promises that the new season will not disappoint. "Season 1 was calm on the roller coaster scale compared to Season 2," she says.
HuffPost Canada TV pressed Nichols for as many details as possible about what we'll see in Season 2. While she was understandably tight-lipped about the major plot points, she did let it slip that there will be plenty of relationship drama, trust issues and moral dilemmas. Sounds like good TV to us!
The show has been so successful! What kind of feedback have you been getting from fans? What has them so hooked?
The beauty of the show is that it's so multi-faceted that any TV fan enjoys it. There are the sci-fi elements, there's the time travel, there's the procedural element, the crime-solving. It's also very character-based, and I've found in my interaction with fans, they love the characters. There are so many characters on the show. You've got your goodies and your baddies and your in-betweens. Everybody can find somebody on the show they can relate to.
What can we expect from the new season?
Continuum Season 2 Episode 1 The second season is very interesting. Obviously the first season was very centered on getting home. I wanted to go home. I would be friends with the baddies, I would partner up with Liber8, whatever it took to get home. It's obviously still important to me in the new season. However, the theme of Season 2 is responsibility. Kagame had a speech at the end of the last season about how, if you drop a pebble on one side of the world, it will become a tsunami on the other. For Keira that's very, very important, because she wants to get home to her husband and her son. Very early on in season 2, she starts asking questions: what am I going to be returning home to? Am I costing my husband and son their lives? Will they never be born? Will I never be born because of what I'm doing now? It's a lot to wrap your head around! [Laughs]
No kidding! In the first episode of Season 2, other characters refer to Kiera as a vigilante. How do you see her? Is she still a cop at heart?
It's interesting. In the year 2077, where we find Kiera at the beginning of the show, Season 1, she's very clear on who she is, the battle that she's fighting, black and white, good vs. evil, she's on the right side of the law. She comes back and throughout the first season she's shown a different world, and starts to see that even though Liber8's tactics may not be the best, or the most humane or appropriate, there's this grey area that exists in this time period.
How has her relationship with Carlos changed?
I would tell you, but then I would have to kill you! [Laughs] It gets stronger. It changes. She relies very heavily on Carlos in Season 2. She needs him to be her friend, to be her co-worker.
What's going on with Alec this season? He's an interesting character because he's so young and he's going through all of this strange stuff...
Yeah! Imagine someone coming to you when you were 18 saying you're going to become this person, and it may not be a great person, but a brilliant person, a very successful person, a person who runs the free world. He's got a complicated life. We shot his stepfather at the end of the last season, he's got a delinquent, scheming, Liber8-supporting stepbrother. His mom is torn between the two, and Alec is very concerned about what he becomes in the future. Can he still do good things and not become a bad person ... or is he a bad person? He goes through a lot. Kiera needs him very badly, but he is scared that in being there for her, he is becoming the man he doesn't want to become. I try to help, but I'm not super helpful because I do have my own agenda -- I do want to get home. And for me to get home, I need him to follow the same path. It's very complicated! [Laughs]
The Liber8 team seems to be pretty shaken up. What can we expect to see from them in Season 2?
Oh, Liber8! They will never cease to amaze and entertain. There's a lot that went on at the end of the last season. Then there's the Kellog debate, which many fans were not happy with. That's still around. He's sort of the middleman, as far as the crossover between myself and Liber8. And Kellog is very intensely involved in Season 2. I can't tell you why! You'll know within the first couple of episodes.
Has Kiera adapted more to her place in time, or is she still very much a fish out of water?
She's definitely adapted. She's learning more, she's adapting more, but there's still definitely the fish-out-of-water element as well.
I know that sci-fi fans can be pretty intense. Have you had any memorable encounters with fans of the show?
Sci-fi fans are awesome. They're very smart, they like to be involved, they like to ask questions. I've been asked questions I don't even know the answer to. I've never had any aggressive interactions. I've had lovely interactions. At Toronto Fan Expo, a guy actually brought a caricature that he had drawn of Kiera that was so good I had it professionally framed and it's hanging in my house in L.A.

I'm behind today folks; I haven't even watched the episode yet (I was out last night and missed it), and may not get to it until later today, or over the weekend. But I didn't want that get in the way of our popular Friday Scandal talkback sessions, which you guys seemed to like, given your participation last season.
So, while you wait for me to share my thoughts, feel free to jump in and share yours if you watched it last night, picking up where we left off at the end of season 1.
And for those who haven't watched it, and plan to do so eventually, I suggest you stay away from this post, because there are bound to be spoilers in the comment section.
So, I'm passing the mic; your thoughts on season 2, episode 1? Do we find out who Quinn Perkins is? Was the revelation worth the wait? What about all the "secrets" that were promised to be revealed? Are Olivia Pope and the Prez still doing their dance, and if so, is it working for you? When I got home last night, I skimmed my Twitter feed and saw a couple of comments that seemed baffled by the handling of "genocide in East Sudan;" I didn't press for more, figuring that I'd watch the episode myself eventually to get the full story, but feel free to toss your $.02 in on that as well? There was also some concern among techies about the veracity of Huck's occasional technology references as Olivia's go-to technology pro.
“The relationship between Carlos and Kiera, for her, is becoming increasingly more difficult because he is her friend and he does trust her, and she’s going to him everyday and lying to him, essentially,” continues Nichols.
“They’re paired up in Episode 2, Inspector Dylan puts them together after she’s been cleared and then it goes through various oscillations, with him being very suspicious, with him thinking ‘How could I [Kiera] have all this information?’ you know. I think given the finale and given the disappearing act I pull at the end, to go see Crazy Jason, I think in Season 2 Carlos is going to confront me in the a different way from how he ever did in Season 1.
“It’s going to be unavoidable now, given what he’s seen.” Kiera reunites with Carlos to solve a political assassination while trying to reconnect with Alec in order to salvage their strained relationship. When the mayor is assassinated, Kiera and Carlos join forces once again to try and solve the case. Kiera also reaches out to Alec but he hasn't been the same since reading the message from his future self.
Showcase’s number one hit series Continuum returns with even more mind-bending episodes in its World Broadcast Premiere on Sunday, April 21 at 9PM ET/PT. Hailed as an “exciting, action-packed romp” (io9) and a “hot new summer show” (Huffington Post Canada), the sophomore season picks up after the shocking season one finale that saw Kiera (Rachel Nichols) race to stop Liber8’s planned attack. The second season of the Canadian Screen Award and Saturn Award-winning series stars Nichols, Victor Webster, Roger Cross, Stephen Lobo, Erik Knudsen and features guest star Hugh Dillon.
In search for answers, Kiera continues her uneasy alliance with Detective Carlos Fonnegra (Webster), and season two sees her grapple with the big question that closed the first season – why was she sent back in time? While Alec (Knudsen) struggles to understand the implications of the mysterious message he received from his future self, the Liber8 terrorists become more strategic and even more lethal as they seek to ward off what they see as the seeds of a disastrous future.
In the season two premiere entitled "Second Chances," an in-hiding Kiera must resurface and reunite with Carlos to solve a murder when the Mayor is killed in a brazen assassination. Trying to reconnect with Alec in an attempt to salvage their strained relationship, Kiera finds he’s changed since reading the message from his future self.
