La Brea Review – Ella’s Identity is Revealed (1×09)

La Brea has figured out the formula for keeping audiences invested. 

But, unfortunately, as with every time-traveling show, it’s also gotten increasingly complex. To make sense of the shocking developments, you have to keep in mind the one thing Dr. Rebecca told the sky people in the clearing: time is a circle. 

The past, the present, and the future are all happening at once, somehow. 

And the rule of thumb remains true — if you change something in the past, it ripples down into the present and ultimately, the future. 

After the revelation that young Isaiah is actually Gavin, much of the episode focused on Eve, Levi, and Josh’s plan to find Isaiah and safely get him to the top of a mountain that housed a sinkhole connecting to 1988. 

Yep, that’s a thing. 

Of course, they couldn’t just outright tell Isaiah that he was Eve’s husband in the future, but it’s a big ask to want a kid to leave his home and jump into a portal that takes him to a different timeline. 

Unfortunately, they didn’t have a choice since Izzy and Josh’s lives were on the line. 

And though they never said it outright, my guess is that Gavin would also cease to exist or would at least exist in a different reality if Isaiah didn’t go through the sinkhole. 

The mission has now changed from “how are they getting out of this time period” to “how can they save Eve’s whole family while hopefully saving themselves in the process.”

While we don’t know how this is going to pan out, their fate doesn’t only hinge on Isaiah/Gavin. 

In this week’s shocking twist, it’s revealed that Ella is Lily… yes, Veronica’s Lily, the one that was kidnapped. 

Now, if you’re like me, you’re probably wondering how this is possible. 

After all, Lily fell through the sinkhole with Veronica and Aaron (who was killed moments into his time in 10K B.C) from 2021. 

How does she exist in both forms as an adult and a kid in the present?

It’s possible I’m missing something or I just don’t understand the idea of traveling through space and time. 

Either way, in the present day, Gavin, Izzy, and Dr. Sophia have dedicated themselves to convincing Ella, who was found wandering on the side of the road with Isaiah in 88, that she’s also from 10K B.C. 

It’s a wild thing to tell someone, and she’s obviously hesitant to believe it, so Gavin breaks into the dig site to find proof. 

Eventually, Ella taps into some memories from her time in the past and digs up a map that we see Dr. Rebecca give her. 

The map includes all the sinkholes and the exact dates they opened/ are set to open, including one in Seattle that is scheduled for the following day. 

Rebecca stole this map from Silas, Isaiah’s grandfather, so it’s really suspicious.

Why does he have this in his possession?

I’m deeply intrigued by Isaiah and Silas and want to know more about them. How did they get here? Where did they come from? Why is Silas so hellbent on keeping Isaiah in this timeline?

And how does he know Rebecca?

Considering all the information Rebecca has and the fact that Silas recognized her, I’m still running with my theory that Rebecca is Gavin’s mother. 

It’s also a mystery as to how Rebecca was able to escape this time period, though, I agree with Sam and Riley — if there’s a sinkhole to 1988 then there has to be a sinkhole back to 2021. 

The option to go to 1988 was given to the sky people in the clearing, and while Veronica and Lily decided to take it, I also wonder what that will do if someone who existed in the 80s arrives in that time period. Is that possible? And how does their arrival in 1988 change the present?

Scott, on the other hand, decided to stay behind to unearth more mysteries in 10K B.C. After finding a cow, he saw that it was branded with a UPC code which means that more sky people are likely not too far behind. 

I can’t believe no one else wanted to help Scott scout for the cow. She’s a source of dairy and meat, it was the only logical thing to do! 

There were a lot of moving parts to the episode. Elsewhere, Ty and Para kissed in the midst of all the action, and it was so cute. 

I love Ty, so I hope that his illness is cured by traveling back in time. Plus, I’m seriously shipping them as a couple. 

Josh also found out about Levi and Eve’s relationship from Isaiah — talk about awkward — and confronted Levi about it after they were taken prisoner by Silas. 

Honestly, Josh has every right to be mad, but he shouldn’t just hold it against Levi. His mother was just as responsible. And, let’s be real, even he’s aware of how disappointing Gavin was during those times. 

He might be taking “father of the year” now, but that wasn’t always the case. 

At least now Gavin’s visions have proven useful, and since he knows where he comes from, he no longer has to wonder about his childhood or who his family was. Losing his family to the sinkhole might have been the worst thing to happen to him, but it has also allowed him to fill in the pieces about his past. 

And hopefully, he keeps filling them in. 

What did you think of the episode? Were you shocked that Ella turned out to be Lily?

Do you want to know more about Gavin’s past? Who is Rebecca Aldridge and why is she so connected to all of this? Do you think anyone should travel back to 1988?

And now that Gavin, Izzy, and Sophia have the blueprints to the sinkholes that are set to open up, can they intervene and stop them before more people get swallowed up?

Can they use the map to reverse-engineer a way to bring everyone back home?

Will Isaiah make it to the mountain so that Josh and Izzy are spared? Will Eve find a way to save Josh and Levi from Silas?
