    The show is begining to change with this episode. We feel the loss of Wade to a Kromagg breeding camp on another Earth. Quinn is captured by the Kromaggs while helping Rembrandt escape. At the detention center Quinn is reunited with the woman whom he believed to be his mother. She reveals to him that she is not in fact his birth mother. His birth parents were doubles from another Earth. They had left Quinn with them for his safety because they were attempting to perfect a weapon that would defeat the Kromaggs. They had returned for him two years later, but they hid him from them. This gives the sliders hope that the Kromaggs can be defeated, and prompts them to continue sliding even though they had found Earth Prime. His mother also gave him a micro dot made by his real parents. In this it is revealed that Quinn has a brother that was hidden on a parallel Earth. It also includes the numerical sequence of this Earth. This is the begining of a new era for sliders. Wade is no longer sliding with them, and they will eventually find Quinn's brother. The Kromaggs start to be in many more worlds that they visit. This is the begining of the new era.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Quinn and Maggie seek Rembrandt and Wade at the Chandler Hotel - but since they were back on their own world, it seems more likely that they would be back in their own homes.

    • Trivia: The Kromaggs seen in this episode and throughout the fourth and fifth season are significantly different from the Kromaggs seen in "Invasion". Their faces are less ape-like, and they now wear clothing resembling Nazi uniforms rather than the skintight black uniforms they wore in "Invasion". Their weaponry is also different. They now use larger rifle-type laser weapons, where in "Invasion" they used small handheld lasers.

    • Trivia: As of this episode, the vortex is now funnel-like. Also, the beam from the timer is now lightning-like instead of straight.
