I hope this show comes back for a second season....but I don't know what the second season would be about?

Spoiler:
They have cured the virus...so do they now leave the arctice and it becomes a big cat and mouse show with the survivors being chased by the corporation


This episode was okay but I didn't really like the kid assassin. I did love it when

Spoiler:
they capture the kid and after alan punches him the kid says "did that make you feel better?" And alan says "no, but this does" and hits him with the crowbar


I also don't understand at all why

Spoiler:
the son/security guard just walked up there to deliver hte virus? Poor attempt to save his sister? getting back at papa? He already knoew the assassin wasn't going to let everyone live so what was the purpose? Seemed like a stupid decision

If this wasn't the next to last episode, I'd consider dumping it. More "worst father ever" dialogue and a reprise of the "we can't trust him, sister" dialogue.

And then Miksa goes and does something stupid ... and it appears the Scythe can turn invisible and silent (the elevator snatch and dropping a message into the bunker) ... ugh.

The Scythe killed all those people ... They would have survived if they had known he could be incapacitated by poking him in the nose.

So, "The 500" are NOT 500 immortals ... but rather "immortals" who have reached 500 years old.

I think I am going to have to go back and binge-watch this. Either they have switched gears so many times I have lost track of what the hell is happening OR I was paying attention and it wasn't good enough for me to care.

Like the rest of us, I'm guessing SyFY isn't sure what to make of this show either. If they were, we would have had a second season announcement already.

Haven, SyFy's other Friday night show, ended it's season on December 13th last year and was renewed for 2 seasons on January 28th.

SyFy sometimes takes their time making renewal decisions. The ratings for Helix are pretty similar to Haven's, so who knows when they will make a decision. But, not surprised a decision hasn't been made yet.

Yeah, the acting from the secondary characters has always been bad in this show, but this episode went even lower.

Other than that I love how they introduce new plots every other episode.

And now...

Spoiler:

The Mom!!!!


I actually laughed at that scene.

I thought it was clear, the "immortals" are just people with good health. They don't get old, a lot of the diseases come when you get old. Or you get old slower, like Hatake who's 500 years old. But I guess he looked younger, like the kid from this episode, a couple of hundreds ago.

I'm not sure ... it might be better binge-watching the episodes. I had a hard time week-to-week. Not sure if I just didn't pay enough attention or couldn't remember details after 7 days.
