"Judgement Day" is the sixth and final episode of the third series of the popular science fiction fan series Time Agent. It was written by Jaime Carroll based on ideas by Billy Treacy. The episode was due for release on 11 December 2011, but due to the previous episode being postponed, this episode was, also, postponed. It was broadcast on 8 January 2012.
Being a little over 45 minutes in length, it is currently the longest episode of Time Agent to date.
Judgement Day is finally upon us. Agent Liam, Agent Mortis and Dr. Robin Turner battle the executive and his Flower Alien legion, as they try to alter the timeline and change the course of human destiny. Our fate is in their hands...
The 'Flower Alien God' is rampaging through Dartchester. The Executive searches for Agent Liam in the vault. But Liam, now with some 'Flower Alien' instincts, chokes the Executive to death. Liam then learns that the Executive always respawns when he dies. After taunting Liam, the Executive shoots himself to escape from the vault. Robin Turner confronts Colonel Radcliffe-Naismith at a secret U.N.I.T. base where they agree to help defeat the Executive and the 'Flower Alien God'. Robin flies a jet aeroplane attacking the 'Flower Alien God', but narrowly escapes with a parachute when the plane is hit. Meanwhile, Agent Mortis has been handcuffed to a fence by Scarlett Brooke so she can get photographs of the 'Flower Alien God' which will help to keep her job as a reporter.
Outside the Vision-X building, the Executive plays mind games with Liam by repeatedly killing himself and respawning elsewhere. Liam finds Mortis and frees him, however, Liam is acting more aggressive and agitated than normal. Mortis realises Liam isn't acting normally and a fight breaks out. As the two fight, the black 'Flower Alien Leader' attacks them both. Robin arrives just in time and shoots the 'Flower Alien Leader'. The three, now reunited, confront the Executive outside the Vision-X building. They are interupted by a phone call from Colonel Radcliffe-Naismith. Liam tells him to 'go ahead' and a missile crashes in to the Vision-X building, destroying it. The Executive taunts that his plans have only just begun and that he will bring even more terror the next time they confront. The Executive then kills himself once again. Liam is sure that he will return.
The team then continue their plan. Liam and Mortis go to stop the giant 'Flower Alien God' while Robin goes to find Zoey and save her. With Liam struggling to keep his head together, Mortis comforts him and reassures him that everything will be alright. Liam then remembers that Colonel Radcliffe Naismith had a Zakatron spaceship at U.N.I.T. headquarters. Mortis gives him Agent Obadiah's vortex manipulator so he can teleport there. Before Liam goes, he whispers a message in to Mortis' ear. Meanwhile, Robin discovers that Zoey has been converted in to a 'Flower Alien' and he breaks down in tears. Liam flies the Zakatron spaceship in to the 'Flower Alien God' killing it, supposedly killing himself in the process.
In the aftermath, Robin leaves Dartchester to travel the world as he can't face staying after what has happened. Scarlett Brooke meets Mortis on a roof-top. Mortis explains that the 'Time Prison' the 'Flower Alien God' was trapped in was time sensitive, meaning that everyone on Earth wouldn't be able to remember what had happened. The only reason they can remember is because they were at the epicentre of the events. Mortis then reveals that Agent Liam is alive due to the fact that he teleported away using Agent Obadiah's vortex manipulator before the Zakatron spaceship hit the 'Flower Alien God'. Mortis is sure that Liam is somewhere out amongst the stars and that he'll come back one day. When Scarlett asks what Mortis is going to do, he explains that Liam told Mortis to "follow in [his] footsteps". Mortis explains that Dartchester is now at the epicentre of the universe and anything could come through the cracks and splinters in space and time, which were caused due to the 'Time Prison' opening violently. He says that he'll need to build up a team to continue defending the Earth.
