Cameron didn’t mean to tell Maggie that Kirsten not only knew where Jacqueline was being held, but had been there herself. It just kind of came out, but his intention was no match for his execution and by tipping Maggie off, Cameron effectively put an almost insurmountable distance between Kirsten and her mother. It strips Kirsten of whatever power she had gained since Leslie’s departure, making her more of a government drone than she wants to be while removing the tangible motivation she has for staying in the program in the first place. It’s a lot for a relatively new relationship to deal with and on the next episode of Stitchers, Cameron is still in the dog house.
Understandably so, though. For as good a person as Cameron might be, and as non-malicious as his revelation might’ve been, his actions were a violation of Kirsten’s trust and hit that much harder because she hasn’t exactly had the time necessary to experience such negative emotions. She’s only been in touch with her feelings for a short while and as such, doesn’t have the coping mechanisms necessary to deal with this breach of her trust; granted, even if she had been emotionally hardened by life, this experience would still be extremely hurtful for her, but this is arguably her first real taste of betrayal. While the two waited a long time to be together, so Cameron is going to do whatever he has to in order to prove himself worthy of Kirsten’s trust again, will Kirsten ever be willing to look over what happened and allow herself to be vulnerable around him again?
Elsewhere on Stitchers, Linus finds himself concerned about Camille after she shuts him out, while the team investigates the death of an engineer that leads them to an underground video game ring.
Stitchers airs Mondays at 9:00 on Freeform.
What will it take for Kirsten to forgive Cameron for his (inadvertent) deceit? Will she be able to find her mother again with Maggie breathing down her neck? Just how close do you think the team is to fully mapping the brain and giving themselves a shot at stitching into Jacqueline?
