Helix - Vade in Pace - Advance Preview

In the last Helix episode, we left off with a shocking and sad twist – Michael did a Jim Jones on his flock and, in a mass murder (not calling it suicide because the victims had no knowledge or choice), wiped out all but a handful of the cult’s congregation that were not yet affected by the contagion - including the children.

The next episode picks up where we left off. Peter, Ann, and Kyle were trying to get into the room where Michael murdered his followers, Amy was trapped behind glass in the garden nursery, and Julia was seen in the future arriving at the destroyed Abbey looking for clues. In classic Helix style, the hour launches with a montage of corny music paired with scenes of death and terror.

Like the last episode, episode 2.08 is strong in pushing the plot forward. Among the developments, the infection spreads off the island, the CDC team’s military escorts return, Alan and Peter are reunited, and we learn what Julia is searching for in the future. We also see a return of Hatake’s sword, and a character gets what's coming to him/her.

This is a strong Michael episode. Steven Weber (Michael) delivers a powerful performance, finally giving the show the gravitas of immortality by conveying the arrogance that Helix didn’t get quite right in the first season with cartoonish villains.

Here are a few quotes from the episode to keep you guessing:

"I’m sorry. I can’t hear you from up here."
"Is this your grand plan?"
"Jeez, don’t. That’s suicide."
"This is payback for all of the hotzone stuff, right?"
"That would make you the queen of nothing."

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
