  • What happens of Caleb or Julia in the future?

  • Will Kyle and Sarah manage to get the cure for “Mycosis” off St. Germain?
  • Does Soren make it off the island? Is his biology still a key to replicating the Mycosis cure along with the bleeding tree?
  • If Peter/Eli and Anne get control of the Bleeding Tree cure for Mycosis, can they really hold the world for ransom?
  • What would Peter/Eli and Anne do with millions of dollars on St. Germain?
