Keira will turn out to to have history with Liber8.The flashbacks over the first few episodes show her being more and more shocked with things in her time not being as great and fair as she believed, it's not much of a stretch that before the seasons out it's going to show that she was actually involved with them prior to their turn to violence.
Operation Theseus is a Shout-Out to the Theseus paradox.The Theseus paradox says that the Athenians preserved the ship of Theseus by gradually replacing rotten or broken parts over time, which raises the question whether the ship is still fundamentally the same objects after it had all its parts replaced. A later debate also added the question that if all replaced parts got preserved as well and reassembled once the old ship is completely renewed, which of the two ships would be the actual ship of Theseus. The naming hints towards Kagame, who is the only person in the world who isn't unique, but actually exists twice: Once as a newborn and once as a timetravelling old man.
Alec is Sam's father.Don't know if Kiera will hook with the young one, or the old one in the future, but I am definitely putting this one out there.
There is, and always has been only one time-line. The older Alec Sadler is also a high-up in a deeply secretive and underground version of Liber8.Look at the broken statue in 2077 in the first episode, versus in 2012 directly after the bombing. Not only is it broken but it's broken the exact same way, meaning that Kagame's suicide bombing is what always happened. Younger Alec is correct in saying that time can't be changed, but his older self understands that time can be tricked and manipulated and that what you see isn't always all that's there. The older Alec all but comes out and says that he's lived through it all before with his "what made me the man I am today" comments to Kagame. Not much was shown but it's likely he had long, deep conversations with Kagame and possibly Julian (Theseus) as well to make them understand that their fight has succeeded and it's only a matter of time. Alec, despite being the inventor of it seems most of the technology of 2077 and being a very rich and powerful man, might be disgusted at the state of things and the blatant misuse of his life's work. He's secretly a leader of an underground movement that has been building its power and influence for the past six decades at all levels worldwide, and as soon as the Liber8 members and Kiera are sent to the past (completing the time-loop) it'll be time for the millions of members to come out of hiding and essentially take the world back from the corporations / dictatorships. The whole purpose of Liber8 and Kiera in the past is not to change it, but to sow the seeds for the future. Kagame's Liber8 could not win. He was defeated and set to be executed and lost hope, but Alec showed him that he'd actually won with there being millions around the world waiting for the proper time to rise up. Essentially, Kagame saw the fruits of his labor before he'd even did them and it gave him such hope that he was willing to go along with the time-travel plan and later die.
Keira is a descendant of Scarlett from GIJoeThe Time Machine is based on or derived from the MASS Device
The "Freelancers" are people under instructions from Old AlecWhile temporal displacement seems to affect mental stability in some cases, for the most part people who are displaced seem to have all their mental faculties. They were put "in position" prior to the major displacement event pushing Liber8 into 2012 and have quietly banded together to subtly put themselves in positions of ability to aid Kiera if Younger Alec should fail.
Escher/ The Freelancers are From the Early 2100's
Garza is related to Alec.Look at the odd way she treated and reacted around his younger self in general during his (very) brief adbuction. Though this may be due to the fact that his older self was responsible for their time-travel, she was still the only one to react in that manner which seems suspicious. Given that we still know next to nothing about Old!Alec, this might be possible.
The entire universe is a stable time loopThe wave that sent people back in time kept propagating. Everyone alive on earth is either a "Freelancer" or descendant from one. The wave sent the entire planet (and all other planets, and stars, etc) back in time, and was essentially the big bang.
Escher is really Sam Cameron or one of his descendents. Emily is his daughter and Kiera's granddaughter (or later descendent).And he got into temporal "freelancing" as a way of searching for and trying to rescue Kiera. Considering he took the name "Escher" in the first place, he might have considered it ironic with all the brain-bendy time-paradox stuff going on.
Garza is the one responsible for nice Young Alec turning into the ruthless bastard Old Alec isAs of 'Seconds', there's a strong possibility/suggestion that Julian becomes Theseus because Kiera "intensively" interrogates him, before pulling her gun on him before she gets stopped by Carlos. The thought crosses my mind, Garza's been sent back to stop Alec from turning down the path which leads to him presiding over a series of factory gulags staffed by permanently mind controlled slaves , so what happens when she tries again, only to be permanently stopped by Kiera?
Kiera really does have a military CMR. She just doesn't know it.What if, without her knowledge, Old Alec asked the CPS to specifically earmark her for an experimental CMR not normally available to police? Possible indirect evidence is the fact that Liber8 people call her "Protector", and Travis's CMR can link up with hers. That capability would make complete sense in a military context, where troops would need to instantly communicate in fluid, highly dangerous situations. BUT it makes no sense to allow it for police officers, so Kiera's CMR in 2077 was set by default to disable the cross-CMR communication capability.
The ARC program Alec developed will become The Machine.After all, it views things through cameras, and has high predictive and analytical power.
Escher is Alec Sadler.The only question is whether he's a younger version of Original Timeline Alec, or an older version of Current Timeline Alec.
There was no corporate bailout of the governments of North America.It makes no sense whatsoever for businesses to directly take over government, and they know it, nor does any business entity, or even all of them combined, have the resources to bail out governments that not only have gargantuan debt, but can print more "assets" at will. The "bailout" was in fact an elaborate paper shuffle and fabrication. Every use of the word "corporate" (corporate congress, etc.) and their crushing mistreatment of the populace is a ploy to redirect the heat and pave the way for the eventual triumphant return of the statists, who will benevolently save them from their evil corporate masters and confiscate everything to "punish the malefactors".
Alec will create a split timeline.One of the freelancers note that he isn't their problem in THIS timeline.
Season 3....Will focus on Carlos and Betty with Julian's crew fighting against a prototype CPS run by Dillon as Kierra teams up with the freelancers
The Time Travel Device is an Ontological Paradox.Every group of time travelers, even those who have more advanced technology than 2077, is trying to get hold of the device. The design of the device doesn't match up with any of the other 2077 tech we have seen, and doesn't bear the hallmarks of Sad Tech. This makes the most sense if nobody knows how to make it, only how to use it - in which case, where did it come from? Maybe it appeared when the first time travelers did, and has just been reused over and over again.
