My Thoughts On Sanctuary: Season 4 – Episode 1: Tempus

Click to visit Sanctuary on SPACEClick to visit SPACE channelClick here to visit Sanctuary on SPACEFirst of all, for those of you who haven’t seen this epic season opener of Sanctuary yet, then I’d advice not to ready any further.  I may have some spoilers within my post and I’d hate to ruin anything for anyone.  For those of you who don’t mind, then by all means, keep reading and I hope you enjoy.  🙂

This season 4 opener of Sanctuary was the most anticipated episodes ever.  Especially by the numerous account of fans out there, just waiting to see the continuation from season 3’s INTO THE BLACK.

This episode, Tempus, mainly focused on Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping) trying to stop Adam Worth (Ian Tracey).  You remember him right? The psycho?? LOL  Well it’s nice to see that he hasn’t changed.  He’s just as cynical as ever.  Although, something has got me baffled.  Both Helen and Adam had to have been thrown back in time for a good few days, if not a couple of weeks, how did they get around the tropic cascade failure?  Isn’t it the same thing like in Stargate SG-1: Point of View where we had 2 Carter’s in the one timeline?  How is it that Helen and Adam didn’t feel the affects of having themselves still in same timeline.  Maybe someone from the show who might read this could answer my question.

Well, in any case, Helen had to keep a low profile.  This is a delicate balance of letting the wrong one see her could have a major effect on the future as she knew it.  But she wasn’t going to be able to do this on her own.  That’s when our other favorite, Dr. James Watson (Peter Wingfield) notices her.  They eventually meet up, but Helen is reluctant in telling him what she knows.  Though, she does tell him some things.  But like he said, too much information can be dangerous.  Although, he does have enough information to keep him going for a few decades.  LOL

I mean, the whole point to this episode is for Adam to go back in time to change his daughters fate from a sickness that Helen refused to help cure.  This was the start of Adam’s relentless obsession.  To save his daughter.  Unfortunately for Helen, Adam succeeds and his daughter is cured.  However, because of his hatred for Helen, he tried to kill her with one of the gadgets he took with him.  In the end, he takes a shot at Helen but misses.  The green discharge from the futuristic gun zipped past Helen and hit off an old stone building behind her, in turn causing some bricks from above to fall on Adam’s daughter.  The result?  You got it, the young girl ended up dieing.

Of course Adam had to blame it on Helen.  Oh yeah, sure,, like she’s just gonna just stand there and let the blast hit her.  Duh!  Not likely.  Then another thought came to mind.  What if this was inevitable?  What if the daughter wasn’t meant to live past a certain day anyway.  What if she was on borrowed time as it were.  That she was destined as the case may be to not live like Adam had wanted her too?  Some pondering questions indeed.  Then what will become of Adam.  Will he have a new obsession?

The whole reason for Adam to go back in time was to save his daughter.  Now, in recent events, she gets killed instead.  Then is it correct to assume that Adam will still try to join the Sanctuary team like he tried before?  Will he try have a new reason to get back at Helen and try this stunt again.  To go back in time and stop his daughters death?  It’s an interesting thought for sure.

Even though Helen and James did get rid of all evidence of the future Adam, the next question is what will she do now?  Her first thought was to just end her life there.  It was too dangerous to have 2 Helen’s in same city.  She had to be careful of who would see her.  That’s when James suggested on a vacation.  Albeit 113 year vacation, but least this way, she will get a well deserved break.  Then like James continued to say, she can just start up where she left off.

Hmmm, a 113 year vacation.  What to do? Where to go?  Any suggestions?

All in all, this was a pretty good episode.  One well worth the wait.  Can’t wait to see next weeks episode and see if there are any changes that might have occurred because of the time travel.  So stay tuned for next week when I’ll have another post of “my thoughts on” blog.
