Tonight is the two-hour season finale of the family's odyssey 85 million years into the past. The sci-fi drama recently revealed that diabolical interests from the future Earth are looking to mine the resources of the past. So, this week, the stage is set for a battle between the past and the future - with the fate of the Terra Nova colony hanging in the balance.
