In true finale fashion, Season 1 of Stitchers ended with Kirsten Clark (Emma Ishta) dealing with one shocking revelation after another. There’s no doubt that she and the rest of the Stitchers team will be affected by the ramifications far into next season. Not only did Kirsten discover more about her family’s history, and that of the Stitchers program, but she also learned that she and Cameron’s connection may be due to the fact that they met as children. Speaking of Cameron (Kyle Harris), he and Detective Fisher’s (Damon Dayoub) lives both hung in the balance as the season ended.

As if all of that wasn’t enough, Kirsten also discovered that she didn’t always suffer from temporal dysplasia. Her father was actually responsible for it. “I think it’s difficult for her to deal with because as she’s gone through this season, she’s been on this emotional journey where she’s become a more emotional human being,” Ishta explains to The TV Junkies. “But it’s not something that she’s always enjoyed. She does feel emotions now, but she doesn’t really want to show them to people. She doesn’t really want to share them with people,” the actress tells us.

One person she had felt closer and closer to as the season progressed was Cameron. After stitching into him in the finale Kirsten discovered their previous meeting, but as of yet hadn’t shared what she saw with anyone else. “I have a feeling that she’ll end up sharing it with Cameron, but not for a while. That’s my guess,” teases Ishta. However the finale certainly did one thing for the pair. She says that “it nicely illustrated the connection that they have and why she feels comfortable with him on a subconscious level. They are able to challenge each other and make each other better people.”

What about the other Stitchers’ team member with his life hanging in the balance? Could Detective Fisher and Kirsten grow closer in Season 2 as well? “I would be really interested to see that happen. I do hope so,” says Ishta.

Overall Ishta hopes that Season 2 will explore more about the Stitchers program mythology as well as give some insight into other characters. “I’d also like to really explore other characters’ backstories, how they got involved, who they are and where they come from. Up until now so much has been focused on Kirsten, but it would be really interesting to find out about everyone else,” she says.
