I'm kind of happy where they are taking the story.
As I understand it:
Young Alec is the young version of the head of the big corporation in the future.
Young Alec's step father is a crazy hippy dude who Alec does not like.
Having to listen to his crazy step father likely pushes Alec to be the way he is in the future.
He sends the Protector Kiera and the other guys back into the past (likely because he knows it was supposed to happen because he already experienced it in his past.)
I'm still waiting for them to pull a Judge Dredd with Kiera. I cannot imagine them keeping everything status quo in the future. I wonder if Kellogg is going to be the Catalyst.
Also, according to IMDB this series is Canadian and was aired earlier in 2012 and has another season slated? I am avoiding looking up any other info about it because I don't feel like reading a spoiler.
