Helix – “Plan B” Review

The island is going to be burned. It is time for some aggressive burning of everything living on the island in order to purge the virus. The CDC is holding nothing back. The fact that there are a lot of people on the island alive and not infected, it’s rather unfortunate. They’ve got hours to live. That is unless Alan figures out a way to create a cure. There are far too many things getting in the way.

Helix - "Plan B"I’m really not a fan of evil Peter. Watching Peter play Kyle like a fiddle was disturbing and unsettling. He’s the kind of lost it. I don’t know what it was about banding with that baby that made Peter go from a guy who might have been a bit of a dick to an all out murderer. The slaughter that he perpetrated on the guard made me cringe. The tablaeu he left was even worse. This is a sick situation that doesn’t make sense other than that he’s lost it entirely.

Amy is so disturbing determined to be immortal. It’s a sign of how naieve she really is. Rather than move on with her life she wants to be ade immortal by an immortal. She doesn’t seem to realize that becoming immortal isn’t necessarily the answer she is hoping. This is because she doesn’t know the full scope of being immortal. She doesn’t realize that she can be killed. I was really glad that at the end of the day she was duped into believing that she was immortal by Julia and Sarah. With only an alteration to her iris, she was led to believe that she was immortal. In reality she wasn’t and suffered the effects of the toxin like all the other soldiers.

The real big downer of the episode was that even though Julia rushed to get Mother, the toxin came to soon. The toxin destroyed all life. The problem is that included mother.

One of the things that I’ve noticed this season compared to last is that a lot of the technical science talk has been dropped. I wish there was a bit more of it. Not nearly as much as they had previously, but sometimes it’s easy to forget that these are scientists with a very specific goal.

What did you think of the episode?
