Let’s do a bit of a character study of Kiera Cameron, shall we?
This came about after a couple of fanfics that I read that kind of described her as very guarded in her emotions… well, she really isn’t. Think about it. Kiera doesn’t hide her emotions. She really doesn’t. When something’s not ok, she doesn’t act like it is. She can reign in her emotions when she needs to, but she doesn’t completely shut them away. She can be a hard-ass because that’s how she was conditioned to be as a protector. She was trained to depend on her tech more than on her gut feeling. But she’s not exactly robotic about it. She was pretty passionate in her future about fighting for what she believed in, which she later realized, in season 3, was the wrong side to be fighting for. She had to wake up to that reality. But even in the glimpses we saw of her doing her job in the future, she did have compassion on people, and she did sometimes follow her gut against orders (saving those two girls from the fire, against orders, for example). But she definitely wasn’t robotic in the sense of not showing how she feels.
Then she came to 2012. She had to hide a lot of stuff from Carlos because, duh, time travel. So in a way she kind of was shutting him out; not because she was afraid to show emotion, but because who, in the year 2012, is going to believe in time travelers? All of the times she hid her emotions from Carlos was because if she didn’t she would have to explain herslef.
And Alec experienced a lot of her vulnerable moments, but not just because he was in her head; she was also able to be more open with him because he was the only one (besides Liber8) who knew and understood where she came from.
As the series goes on you see her open up even more. I was so struck by her reaction to what Brad went through after he used Flash to restore his memory. The intensity in which everything came back to him, his reaction to what he remembered made her cry for him. The way her eyes were so full of tears and she kept apologizing… she was so sorry that what she did (giving him the drug to help him remember) caused him so much anguish, and that it turned out that his wife and daughter are dead.
And it’s not like she’s over-emotional. She can reign it in when she needs to get down to business. But when she’s passionate about what shes doing- doing what she believes in, it’s very obvious. And she’s also not afraid to open up to and share her vulnerability with those close to her.
Just finished season 3 of Continuum. I know their is no official word on renewal yet so if that is how the show ends I have to say it was a fucking fantastic end!
