The second season of Helix wrapped up this week. We got some answers but like the end of last season someone has an unexpected new job and a new set of questions arise. Spoilers ahead.
There's a new leader on the island and Julia's reaction on meeting him says it all. Also Peter and Anne step up their relationship, Julia continues to be clever and Sarah finds a target for her anger. Spoilers ahead.
I mean, that really got out of hand fast. And by "that" I mean a lot of things happening on the island of St. Germain. Winger has her worst day ever, Julia does what she has to do, Anne and Peter take care of business and Amy...well, I'll tell you about that in a bit. Spoilers ahead.
We already knew Amy was crazypants and Anne was not too far behind. But this week we see the depths of their craziness. We also find out what was going on in the abbey's basement. But that's not the only WTF moment from the episode. Spoilers ahead.
Like most characters on Helix, Dr. Kyle Sommer alternates between acting sensible and doing stupid stuff as required by the plot. This week Kyle carries the Stupid Ball over the goal line and scores big time. Plus an unexpected character returns (sort of). Spoilers ahead.
No, not this moment shown though Peter and Anne should just go ahead and get a room. On this week's episode of Helix Kyle finally gets a clue, Amy takes some bold steps but Michael is the one with the big moment. Spoilers ahead.
Brother Michael deals with unruly followers. Peter makes a friend. Sarah does something sensible, but quickly reverts back to form. And several characters on Helix would benefit if people talked to each other and shared information. I'll share plenty of spoilers ahead.
The revelation about Brother Michael's personal project wasn't unexpected but I had harbored a small hope that characters had been speaking metaphorically and not literally. But instead the show managed to make me feel a little sympathy for Amy. Plus some dots are connected back to the first season.
With the obligatory Fifty Shades of Grey reference out of the way let's consider this week's episode of Helix. Secrets are revealed, Sister Agnes makes a dangerous discovery and Sister Amy's hand is magic. Spoilers ahead.
On this week's episode of Helix parents and siblings cause all kinds of problems. But the plot is moving forward and some questions are answered though in a way that raises even more. All this and a twisted Andy Griffith Show moment. Spoilers ahead.
In this week's episode of Helix someone may be having mental issues and Sister Amy takes matters into her own hands. Plus lots of handwavy science. Did this episode address any of my questions? Spoilers ahead.
The new season of Helix started off with a lot of unresolved issues from the first season and introduced a few more. How have they been addressed so far and how will they be addressed this season? Spoilers ahead.
Some say he's an immortal assassin. We just know... He's called the Scythe.
This week's episode of Helix "Survivor Zero" introduced Jeri Ryan as high powered corporate honcho Constance Sutton, who is a dark mistress of Corporate Speak (among other things). I'm all about the added value so there will be plenty of spoilers ahead.
This week's episode of Helix introduced new characters and new mysteries on top of the existing ones. Plenty of spoilers and the first few minutes of the next episode ahead.
subject to change without notice.
I don't know what to say really about that double pilot. I mean, I came away with the oddest feeling... like i'd just taken a bite from the softest, sugary warm donut you ever saw but found it tasted like a cinnabon instead; not the worse taste in the world but only if you're expecting it.
The next episode of Helix (The first two were shown together on Friday so this is episode 3) is streaming on Syfy so I watched it. The title above is my short assessment. More involved and spoilery stuff follows.
