The Taskers turn their guns on each other in the final real lies never, and yet their marriage – and the Omega Sector – is intact by the end of the hour, a seed of trouble is planted that would have really ruined the spies’ mission in Season 2.
Alas, we will never know exactly how things would have turned out; CBS canceled the action comedy-drama in early May. So let’s check in one last time with Harry, Helen, Luther, Maria, and Gib as we go over the highlights of the two-hour series finale, “Lying Truths/Waking Dream.”
In the first episode, Krypsis – the organization that targets the Omega sector – steals a computer that will be the key to unlocking all information on all Omega agents worldwide. But Krypsis has to break it first, and they enlist the help of a hacking collective. This is where Max, the teenage hacker from a few episodes back, comes in: he consulted Omega and can help them infiltrate the collective and gain access to the missing computer.
He is also dating Dana, Harry and Helen’s daughter. And when they FaceTime, she uses a sign in the background of her shot to follow him to where Harry’s team is set up, supporting Gib. Harry realizes that there is no longer a hiding place: although Helen protests at first, they tell Dana the truth about their work with the spy organization. She is, understandably, shocked.
The confession comes just as Harry has to rush, along with Luther and Maria, to save Gib from the very creepy Krypsis boss who has just shot everyone in the room except the tech expert. Harry chases her around the back, where a helicopter awaits. It destroys the computer – yay! – but the leader of Krypsis drugs him and loads him onto the helicopter, which takes off just as the rest of Harry’s team runs to the back of the building and can do nothing but watch him go.
The second hour begins with a short story about our Russian villain (played by Americans‘ Annet Mahendru): Her father was a guard who worked for a party when she was a child, and he was collateral damage in an Omega Section action there. So while Helen also brings her son Jake into the fold and the rest of the team tries to find Harry, the Krypsis woman has tied Harry to a stretcher and injected him with scary drugs. He warns her that her training renders the truth serum impotent, but she retorts that the substance she gave him will cause him immense pain.
We soon see that she means physical And psychological harm: the drugs, along with some hypnagogic suggestions, cause Harry to hallucinate that his friends and loved ones have turned on him and are trying to kill him.
So by the time Luther, Maria, Helen and Gib get to Harry, he shoots them before they can get too close. (Meanwhile, the Lady of Krypsis sets a few bomb timers and hurries off, unnoticed.) But Helen knows she can get to her husband, so she puts down her gun and slowly and calmly approaches him, remembering their love and family. It works, and Harry wakes up just in time for them all to get out of the building before the bombs go off.
So it’s all good, right? All Taskers are aware of the secret of the Omega Sector. Maria agreed to turn down a new position and stay with the team, much to Luther’s relief. What could go wrong? Welp, at the very end of the episode, we see the Krypsis boss parked across the street from the Tasker house, talking to someone on the phone.
“They think the danger is over,” she said. “We are taking them apart now, piece by piece. Begin phase 3.” Harry Tasker, sleeper agent? The world will never know.
