Although we didn’t get a death or potentially fatal injuries in this finale, “Safe” sets up every major character for a significant amount of action in the upcoming final season. To recap:

  • June is escaping the evil Canadians by train with Hawaii as her hopeful final destination
  • Luke has been arrested and will have to go to trial for killing the man who attacked June
  • Nick has been detained after smacking Commander Lawrence at his wedding reception and tipping his hand about his attachment to June in front of Commander Mackenzie
  • Janine has been arrested by the Eyes after mouthing off to Naomi and gossiping with one of Commander Lawrence’s marthas
  • Aunt Lydia has been left shattered by Janine’s arrest and her disillusionment with the system she’s dedicated her entire belief system in
  • Moira and Rita are still in Toronto and probably won’t have much to do next season, at least not on screen.
  • Fred is still dead.
  • Serena is escaping the evil Wheelers by train (also Canadian) and trying to bum newborn diapers off other passengers
