Alphas - 2x06 Alphaville caps and recap


Summer as Skylar Adams

Summer Glau fans were eagerly awaiting her return as Skylar Adams in tonight's episode of Alphas 'Alphaville'; the episode didn't disappoint and managed to deliver great scenes involving Skylar and her daughter Zoe, the Alphas team and a great gallery of villains.
 
Summer did a great job of portraying a single mother struggling with raising a gifted child. Skylar remains her brilliant, sharp-tongued, mistrustful self.  There was so much going on in this episode. It was also closely tied to the overarching story. Alphas is great science fiction and really good story telling, more people need to see this show.
 
Also what a cliffhanger, Skylar's first contact with Stanton Parish was pretty cool on account of being totally unexpected, leaving us very excited to see Skylar Adams back in final episodes 2x12 and 2x13.
 
HD screencaps of the episode have been added to the Gallery.

Just watched Alphas live and Summer Glau was amazing in Alphaville! This show is getting better and better, more people should watch it!

Also can we really talk about a guest appearance when Skylar is in 2/3 of the episode, more than any member of the Alphas team, except Rosen maybe wink

I have to admit I was quite captivated by the pair of them with Dr Rosen. Skylar should be Summer's daughter in real life. I'm sure she might like that.

Acting the part at her age is very good. Summer was sharp, crisp and precise. Impressive.

Did you mean "Zoe" should be Summer's daughter in real life, by chance?

Like in every episode of Alphas, Alphaville had its share of action and fights; though the most important thing here was not the amount of cool stunts but the plot and character development.

First of all Skylar is not (has never been) another Alpha of the Week; we know she'll come in the finals episodes (in a pivotal role?). More, now than Stanton Parish made her an offer, we're wondering if she will embrasse the "dark side" and join Parrish.

It seems like the member of the team are getting more power; it happened for Nina in a previous episode and it happened here with Rachel.

Once again, Dr Rosen's choices in the past, like revealing to the whole world the existence of the alphas, were challenged by the testimonies of members of the Alphaville community. Was it really for the greater good? Also Rosen hiding Parrish device from the eyes of Clay reinforce that he's making questionable decisions and blurrs the line between good and evil. I still think that the Alpha team led by Rosen are the good guys, until proven wrong, but Rosen follows a path that could be seen as equally questionable as Parrish's.

It was a bit disappointed we did not have an straight answer about the real function of the "phonic stimulator" at the end of the episode but Skylar's involvement and possible enrolment by Parrish, Rosen's questionable actions, Rachel's power amplification and Rosen's realisation there's a traitor were enough to draw an interesting episode. As Alex said, this is good story telling.

Some people on the net complained that the story didn't really go anywhere and no issues were resolved; this is because this episode raised questions, that will be resolved in the later episodes, like Skylar's involvement with Parish, Rosen's questionable actions, or the leak within the alpha team.

The fact that this episode was not self-contained could be confusing but this is the only way to tell a story throughout a season. No wonder serialised series struggle to survive on tv, when people complain about story telling.

As mentioned before, there's no engaging shipping in Alphas and Rachel's love story with the tac guy is no exception.

A tweet has just come up from Alphas, giving this quite lengthy youtube of the next ep.
(If anybody wants to alter this link to make it look better, please feel free, as I don't know how to do it here).

Thanks Kevin, but this clip is taken from ep 2x07 (aired last Monday) while next Monday episode is 2x08 (the promo trailer is in the forum : Alphas 2x08 'Falling' promo trailer

Syfy has added this clip because it gives keys to future episodes : Rosen has visual flashes of Parish memories, as well as what seems like foreshadowing images of events yet to come.
I have written a blogpos that includes a slowmotion version and screencaps, which leads to a few revelations : Parish memory flashes
