La Brea said goodbye to a long-time series regular during, "The Road Home, Part 1," in which, finally, the group may have gotten some answers about Eve's mysterious location. But, first, of course, they had to deal with various monsters and a betrayal.
The show's third season has been slowly edging toward its finale, as every episode teases a piece of the bigger picture. But due to Eve, Josh, and Riley's absence, La Brea's third season never had the capacity to run full steam ahead.
Rather than being able to allow La Brea's final season to surround the final question of whether the group of survivors will ever return home, it has surrounded the mystery of Eve's disappearance and Gavin's past with his sister, Helena, who he is only now beginning to remember. The final season also introduced Maya as its new villain, a woman who is willing to sell time-traveling planes to the highest bidder and risk massive potential dangers.
"The Road Home, Part 1" starts putting the pieces of the ending together, but, there is nothing about the cliffhanger of this episode that suggests a massive series-ender. However, killing Levi does offer some emotional breakdowns for Gavin and Izzy as a man they viewed as a member of their family died trying to protect them, with one final piece of information: he knows where Eve is.
Is there a chance that Eve, Josh, and Riley have all been together in 1965 this entire time? It would make sense, and quicken things along if all three were shown to be together.
Officially revealing Maya to be a villain was not entirely surprising, and La Brea allows Gavin to understand when she accidentally reveals herself by joining Gavin right after the connection to the mysterious person claiming to have Eve was cut.
Otherwise, Leyla was the other big betrayal of the episode, not that it seemed to lead to much anyway. With only one episode left following this, it was a bit late to have Leyla's betrayal, or the reveal of it, hold that many stakes, especially as she was only directly connected to Izzy.
Leyla's betrayal is further determined meaningless when she quickly helps the rest of the group unlock a code to give them the upper hand. Leyla's motive was wanting to get out of 10,000 B.C., but, that was everyone else's larger goal too. So, why did she feel the need to team up with the military opposition?
Leyla's explanations and motives do not go beyond that, and while she had been spying on the group and giving them up, it is not entirely clear why that was necessary, especially with Maya being present and watching them most of the time.
As the group splits up to rescue Eve, Josh, and Riley while the others stay in 10,000 B.C., clearly, this must all come to a head in the series finale, "The Road Home, Part 2."
Will the group finally go home? Will they all be reunited but continue to live their lives trapped in 10,000 B.C.? Or, will they all end up in a different timeline entirely? La Brea needs to finally answer its biggest questions in the series finale.
