Shouldn't Katrina be considered the demon not James? She's the one that broke time by inventing the machine and sending James in. And ending her earlier in the cycle seems like it would've prevented the problems they claim are created by James' travels.

I'd been sure that Jennifer was going to turn out to be Cole's mom. Guess I was wrong.

Great show. All four seasons were excellent.

That said, my least favorite episode from all four seasons was the big finale at the end of season four. I thought it was a stinker. I was literally screaming with frustration at the screen when Cass debated for what seemed like forever (4min 50sec) whether or not to push the button. (“Get On With It!!”) I mean, we all Knew she was going to push the button. No show ends with, ‘And they all failed and died.’

From that point on the episode turned into a sappy, sentimental snooze-fest. Cass and Cole spent 10 minutes of show-time saying good bye to each other, then two minutes later they were back in each other’s arms again. The whole premise of the story was that Cole must be erased from time to save reality. There is No Other Way! That was why they were all so sad! Then Katarina fiddles for twenty seconds with the most complex computer program the world has ever seen and – Presto! – Cole doesn’t have to be erased after all! Yay! Love wins the day!

We all want happy endings, but that ending felt more like a lazily written fairy tale than an adult oriented science fiction show.
