Careful, Chuck you don't want to know too much about your future. It might disrupt your destiny as Imperious Emperor of the World!

Yes, this was a very good episode. I was actually beginning to think it was going to be a complete standalone outside of the general saga but it tied in at the end. Since Kagame has arrived it looks like nothing Kiera has done in anyway deters his plans. She is just a hamster running in a wheel trying to get somewhere but it means nothing.

Loved the use of future tech in this episode. If a standard cop's uniform can pretty much control the present day internet, God knows how powerful the future society can run into every facet of your life.

My only fault in the episode is again Rachel Nichol's portrayal of Kiera. In most of her scenes as all business cop she is great but in her two future emotional scenes it just didn't work very well for me.

This episode reminded me of the PS3 game, Heavy Rain. The tech and investigative procedures Kiera uses reminds me of Agent Norman Jayden's "ARI" device, the music was suprisingly similar to that used during certain scenes in the game, and of course since this was filmed in Vancouver ... there were copious amounts of rain in practically every scene!

This was a very good episode. Even I didn't see the end coming (I thought the killer was the assistant), and the reveal about Kiera's husband was a shocking surprise. Sometimes this show goes places I would never expect from a SyFy show. Very interested in seeing how the remainder of the season plays out.

@ Monkeyfoot: It's also made from peeeeople! For once I thought Nichol was great in the emotional flashback scenes. 

@Ryodin: YES! I didn't even thing of that, but you're totally right; the tech is very Heavy Rain!
