Now that we are further through the series in the UK, I agree with the earlier comments to keep watching. A TV series can balance many more story threads up in the air than a film can, and they have really done this now with the ex-boyfriend paramedic, FBI agents, schoolteacher with a secret, several different Terminators and Resistance Fighters on different missions, the Turk, and the uncle.
However, I'm disappointed that the comments about the final episode don't make it look so good.
