  • When Joshua and Mole are forced to take refuge from the sector police at Jam Pony, Max and Alec are exposed as Transgenics to their work colleagues. Meanwhile, Ames White and his special task force surround the building ready to make their move.

    Although this season has been fairly hit and miss, the show\'s co-creator James Cameron makes sure it goes out with a bang by not only coming up with the story but by directing it too, for the first (and sadly last) time. It\'s a good job this final episode runs longer than the others (clocking in at just over the hour) because, unless it was split into a two part finale, it would feel too rushed for a standard 45 minute episode. It was unclear at the time of filming whether or not this would be the season or series finale, and so instead of packing in all the answers to long running questions (which may have been attempted if it was known to be the final episode), what we get here is a perfect summation of the show. The series strong suit has always been it\'s theme of discrimination and prejudice within the city, and so in the final episode we see things finally come to a head as Max and Alec are found out at Jam Pony leading to them joining their fellow Transgenics in Terminal City. No longer are they running and hiding but instead resolve to take their stand as one. united group. It may not provide absolute closure, the type that a series with so many unanswered questions such as this needs, but it is a satisfactory ending, one filled with hope for the future
