I havent yet watched the final eps. I think the show got confused with season 3 ( I am). Season 1& 2 led us to believe it was all about people traveling back in time then season 3 comes along and suggests its all about alternative universes - the the guy who "travelled back in time" came from the alternative universe and killed an innocent person and those who travelled with him are misguided also? It seems they just wanted an extra season so messed it all up. should have ended at season 2? Maybe the last few eps of season 3 will clarify?

Ya, that's exactly how I felt. It felt like a proper ending for a series finale. The first question you have to ask yourself is whether or not there's enough story left to justify more. The next question is whether or not Epix will want it. The network will make significant changes in the new year, including a rebrand to MGM+. If this is indeed the end for WOTW, then you should feel satisfied that you got three seasons' worth of story for this H.G. Wells adaptation, which has really tried to be both big and ambitious in its storytelling.
Oh, I do feel satisfied, I just felt like they could do more if they wanted. But I can totally live with this being the end. :)

Finished season 3. Not a perfect season, but good!

Lukas Haas played astronaut Richard and was the Amish kid in my favorite Harrison Ford film, Witness (1985). He looked weird then, still does and is now perhaps too chubby to be in the space program.

Too chubby?! :lol:

Here's an image from last year, probably shortly before they were filming the season.

My favorite scene from S02E08
00:07:25
(Emily wakes up on ship. Sacha recently killed her mother in order to get help from one of their descendants for Emily recovering from viral reaction. Bill created and she voluntarily took the virus which will have a cascade reaction on her progeny.)
(TEARFULLY) Leave me alone.
-We're gonna die on this ship.
-At least we'll be together.

00:07:30
You think we're gonna be together?
I hate you.

00:07:37,440 --> 00:07:40,240
We have time, Emily.
We have plenty of time.

The REAL ALIENS are those two astronauts, real weird looking as if from the Midwich Cuckoos.

Lukas Haas played astronaut Richard and was the Amish kid in my favorite Harrison Ford film, Witness (1985). He looked weird then, still does and is now perhaps too chubby to be in the space program. I guess they do let chubby guys go to space if they have the experience and specialized skillset under their belt. Lizzie Brocheré played Juliet.

Bill figures out that they are from the future but how did they get there i.e. on that planet they showed? Wouldn't there have to be some point in time where humans built those ships on earth and left to explore space, find and occupy that planet and then at some point in the future they figure out how to time travel to the past?


There's both a time travel and alternate universe concept at play which is mentioned in season 3. You have to suspend disbelief to really enjoy any good SF or fantasy. I find it more fun to speculate away any points which don't seem well explained. A show can get dull if over explained. You replied very quickly! I was still editing and revising my post so take another look at the finished version.
There's nothing to indicate the ships were made on earth.

An even bigger stretch, is that particle beam exposure and slipping into a coma lands you safely across the blackhole, on that 2nd furture alternate devastated earth.

Normally they'd needed a large population to have created such ships or with a smaller population, the colony world would have alien tech they could learn from. With the time loop and causality, the colony began with the single safely landed Emily/Sacha ship which originated from their own future!

I binge watched Season 3, ahead of the release dates using Canadian CBC Gem app and it's premium 1 month trial.
Excellent Season 2 time travel paradox, Emily colonizing a world by traveling in a ship built by Emilians :) and good acting.

Gabriel Byrne excels at moody troubled characters. I thought season 2 was a great finale and was pleasantly surprised to have season 3. The only fail is the idea of the two astronauts keeping secrets from mission control and perhaps the physics of black hole vs wormhole. I doubt that would be possible. There's no real privacy on a government owned space craft and if your on a Bezos owned ship, ditto.

For season 4, we could have the 2 astronauts rescued in a new future alternate world or they could explain how just two people could create a technologically advanced fanatic society. I guess tech in the ship helped.

Ok but can you explain this:

If Emily and that creep boyfriend of hers where the original seeds to the race of humans in space that came back from the future, how did those humans get here with those ships in the first place meaning how did they get out into space before the Emily story so that they could come back and kill billions of humans on earth? Did they come from another reality via a black hole? They never explained this.

Bill figures out that they are from the future but how did they get there i.e. on that planet they showed? Wouldn't there have to be some point in time where humans built those ships on earth and left to explore space, find and occupy that planet and then at some point in the future they figure out how to time travel to the past?
