'Stitchers' Season 3 Finale Twist Ending Wasn’t in Original Script

The Stitchers season 3 finale “Maternis” ended with a shocking cliffhanger. Kirsten was able to save her mother, but apparently it caused memory loss. Supposedly Kirsten couldn’t remember the last couple years.

However, in the last scene of the finale, Kirsten said to someone “I will never forgive you for what you’re making me do to him”. So Kirsten was lying to Cameron about her memory loss. Who was Kirsten talking to and why would she pretend to have amnesia? Stitchers actor Kyle Harris explained how that brilliant twist ending came about.

Kyle Harris talked to TV Line about the shocking twist ending that led us to believe Kirsten is faking her memory loss. That ending actually wasn’t in the original script. The shocking twist was added after they already started filming the episode.

“The episode was supposed to end with Cameron leaving and Kirsten just sitting there, not remembering anything. As we were shooting, I think we had three days left, our showrunner Jeff [Schechter] had this idea: What if someone came into the frame, but we don’t know who it is, and suddenly it goes from Kirsten not having her memory to doing a total 180 and dropping that line? That was the one-two punch I think we were missing.”
The Stitchers actors were left with the same question that the fans had. Who was Kirsten talking to? Kyle said the cast sat down with Jeff Schechter and asked him that very question.

“Is it Maggie? There are so many different ways you could go with this. It has to be someone who means enough to her to do this for them. But she’s also doing this to protect Cameron. Why does she need to protect him?”

Freeform hasn’t announced if they will renew or cancel Stitchers, so at this time we don’t know if there will be a season 4. Kyle Harris has some potential season 4 plot ideas if the show gets renewed.

“It would be cool to see how the program has protect Kirsten now that she’s essentially a weapon. If she fell into the wrong hands, [there would be consequences]. I’d also love to see the program go public, watch Maggie give a press conference at the White House. We could play celebrity for a moment, since the team is like a group of superheroes in a way. But that could easily take a turn — I could see people getting angry that we have access to all these private memories,” he said.

Hope Freeform will renew Stitchers for season 4! Who do you think Kirsten was talking to at the end of the Stitchers season 3 finale? Leave your thoughts and theories below!
