Stitchers: A Poll (and a Theory)


EMMA ISHTA, KYLE HARRISIn the time since Stitchers first season ended with Cameron dead and not being revived (while Kirsten yells his name over and over…) there are only so many places to watch old episodes. Hulu has two whole episodes, be still my beating heart (Sorry Cam.).

ABC have an “on-demand” option to re-watch the first season apparently and then there are sites where one can access the show’s first season.  So out of boredom and a need to see who else is thinking of  Stitchers, a poll was created.

For those who had the wherewithal to record the episodes on DVR (And really…why wouldn’t you?) getting that Stitchers fix is a bit easier. By the end of the show’s finale, it looked like the question of Ms. Clark and Dr. Goodkin becoming a couple, aka “Will they, won’t they?” was (pardon the pun) possibly a dead issue. If Cameron does not make it back into the world of the living, who will Kirsten turn to for support?

Sure the show is about so much more than link ups between workmates and colleagues. It has a pretty intricate plot with so many questions that need answering.

For Example:

The whole, is Kirsten’s father (Who turned out to  be C. Thomas Howell…how cool is that?) still alive and if so where is he and what is he doing scenario.

Who was Barbiero talking to, in the car and on that cell phone …And who killed him?

Linus with his, “nobody likes me, everybody hates me” storyline.

Liam’s phone call (To whom?) where he asks about plan B.

Les Turner…

Quincy seems to be doing okay in hospital and Camille is the only member of the team with no real “outstanding” issues at the moment (apart from Linus being totally p*ssed at her for not telling the then live Cameron that he should pilot).  Maggie proved that regardless of any doubts beforehand that she supports her stitchers team. All of them.

While waiting for the Halloween special, it was decided to look at the more romantic side of the show and see who fans think Kirsten should link up with.

Be advised, one answer does kind of depend on Cameron being revived… (Although not necessarily – see theory for further explanation.)

The question for the poll  is…”Who should Kirsten link up with in the show?” In other words who do you think her perfect mate is? But before answering that question by clicking on the below suggestions, or adding your own, check out the theory.

Time for that theory:

Anyone watching the season finale will remember the secret footage of Kirsten’s dad giving her Temporal Dysplasia and “killing” her mother while trying to rescue mom from her coma.

So…

What if Mother did not die? It only looks like the poor woman expired. Perhaps mother is still alive somewhere, not necessarily in a coma (which this viewer believes to be the case). If Kirsten’s mom is alive this brings us neatly to the theory:

What if Cameron does not die and ends up comatose? Could Kirsten then, with the updated technology that Cameron himself structured, talk to him while he is in the coma?  It sounds a little like a variation of the Jennifer Lopez film The Cell (Her character entered into the minds of  others and interacted with them.) This would give the second season a completely different slant and allow Kirsten to be with Cameron although only in the metaphorical sense.

There it is, the  theory. What do you think? Possible, not possible?

Down below is the poll. There is absolutely nothing to be gained by participating. It is just for fun…and to see who fans think should be in the “will they, won’t they” running. Plus, it is a little something to keep minds on the ABC Family show until its Halloween Special. Anyone who has ideas, or an idea, for future polls about other characters…like, for instance, who you would like to see have a bigger role in future (think Tim from engineering…) please leave suggestions in the comment section.

The same holds true for ideas of what Cameron’s fate may be, thoughts and suggestion in the comment section please and thank you.
