Stitchers Boss Breaks Down Biggest Twists From Season 3 Premiere

Stitchers returned for its third season on Monday with an appropriately mind-bending premiere that put Kirsten’s entire team on a new — not to mention extremely personal — path.

For starters, we now know for sure that Kirsten’s mother is still alive. Her brain “evolved” as part of Project Grasshopper, and Blair is now determined to find her so he can figure out what makes her tick.

That said, I can’t imagine Kirsten will be too eager to help him — especially after stitching into his son’s memory revealed that he intends to kill Kirsten’s mother. (I mean, she also discovered that her father killed Blair’s son, but let’s focus on what’s important here, OK?)

Now that we know Mama Clark is still alive, tracking her down is going to be “the big drive for Kirsten this season,” showrunner Jeffrey Alan Schechter tells TVLine. “Everybody has a vested interest in keeping her mom alive and stitching into her — but can they perfect their stitching technology quickly enough for Kirsten to finish the rescue mission she started with her dad when she was a little kid?”

Generally speaking, Schechter says we’re entering the “warrior phase” of Kirsten’s journey. “Now that [the Stitchers team has] figured out how to be family it becomes: How do I fight for this family?”

As for Kirsten and Cameron’s relationship, Nina may be out of the picture, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be smooth sailing for Stitchers‘ OTP.

“As much as they want to be together, it’s going to be a delicate dance,” Schechter says. “How do they manage their relationship now that it’s clear that Cameron’s ex-girlfriend is out of their lives? There should seemingly be nothing stopping the from being together now, but it turns out there’s a very compelling thing that keeps them from acting on their relationship to the extent that they want to.”

    If Kirsten stitches into her mother (a living consciousness) does that mean her temporal dysplasia will return?

  2. Sheldon Wiebe says:

    Cameron is better off without Nina. I mean, she bugged out after three days? THREE DAYS!?!

    That’s pretty pathetic (but since she’s gone I’ll take it…)

    • Alyssa says:

      I hated Nina so much so anyway to get her to leave is fine with me. But really, she knows he works for the NSA, shouldn’t she know he might be busy?

      I would’ve liked to see Cameron break up with her, but she’s gone so that’s good enough!

  3. Sheldon Wiebe says:

    Nina bugged out after three days? She definitely doesn’t deserve Cameron.

    • Sheldon Wiebe says:

      It took three minutes for my initial post to appear, but Nina’s flakiness deserved to be noted with emphasis so I’m not apologizing for the second one…

    I just hope the delay in getting this season out doent hurt the numbers — last night was great its just been too long a wait

    • ndixit says:

      I am not going to look at the numbers. They are bound to be bad. So many people were surprised when they found out Stitchers was airing season 3. I bet a chunk of the audience still thinks it got cancelled. A year plus break is a death blow to any show.

      • ScottJ says:

        Its been 10 days over a year, and that’s after the second season started 3 months early. There’s no rule that says seasons should be every year on the dot. HBO has delayed Game of Thrones by 3 months and no-one is claiming that as a death blow. British and European shows routinely break for 18-24 months between seasons, and some of their shows have been running for years.

    this was very interesting episode so apparently Kirsten dad and Kirsten when she was small return her mother and dr stinger wife back to life and it looks that Kirsten dad didn’t know so government and that evil agency stole his wife body and did something bad to her she probably doesn’t even know who she is and by calling her an asset I think she is doing something for them like some programmed who knows what. Also we found out that Kirsten dad dr stinger/blair and admiral know each other and it looked from that picture that they were friends, something bad happened between them. I think that they stole Kirsten dad technology and his wife body, but one think which doesn’t make sense her dad created technology so only he knows technology the best so how would government know all this without his training something stings here big. Also we now know that Kirsten da did searching for his wife and probably has for all this years and he is probably working on something to heal her. Also Kirsten dad looked terrible with long beard and it was great to see C.Thomas coming back as her father as he is great, but hitting with the car Blair’s son just to pass Kirsten message it make sense after what they’ve done to his wife and the real question is did her dad killed all the others as well it looks to me that Kirsten dad is fighting for his wife and has been all this years and that they are his enemies.
