I hope everyone had a good weekend. Yippee, it’s the start of the work week! While some people might be upset about the debates taking over our televisions tonight, I’m actually thankful for the breather. It gives me an extra two hours that I can use to catch up on my backlog from last week and not be trying to swim against the tide as more new episodes flood onto my TiVo. If your DVR is already empty, check out our suggestions on what to watch during tonight’s single hour of primetime.
Tonight, the second season of Alphas comes to an end. Last week, Kat and John were transporting Mitchell, when they were attacked by the firestarter, Cipio, and some other bad Alphas. While Parrish got his human hard drive back, the good guys had taken Cipio captive. Dr. Rosen first tried having Nina push Cipio in order to extract information on Parrish’s plans. When that didn’t work, he had Hicks threaten Cipio’s girlfriend. Finally, he resorted to torture, injecting Cipio with adrenaline so that he would start burning himself. Meanwhile, Gary contacted Skyler, helping her out of her drug-induced fantasy state, where Parrish had tricked her into working on blueprints for some evil doomsday device.
I really enjoyed the line last week when Skylar’s daughter asked her mom (played by Summer Glau) if she was some kind of Terminator. That’s one thing I like about this show—no matter how heavy the subject matter, they still take moments to add some levity and lighten the mood. That said, I’m looking forward to tonight’s season finale, which should be action-packed. What is Parrish’s ultimate plan, and will the good guys be able to stop him?!
In tonight’s episode, “God’s Eye,” a desperate and slightly delusional Rosen becomes determined to confront Stanton Parish over Dani’s fate, while the team races against time to keep the Alpha leader’s deadly plan from happening.
Don’t miss the season finale tonight on Syfy at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Alphas @ Clicker.
