Fans of Summer Glau (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Firefly) and Syfy’s high-octane hit-series Alphas will get a double dose of the actress as she returns as Alpha Skylar Adams in the final two episodes of the season beginning this Monday, October 15 at 8PM ET/PT. The thrilling and shocking second season finale of Alphas airs Monday, October 22nd at 8PM ET/PT.
In the season’s penultimate episode, “Need to Know”, Dr. Rosen (David Strathairn) kidnaps and interrogates an Alpha prisoner forcing the team to wonder how far Rosen will go to avenge the death of his daughter Dani. Meanwhile, Harken (Malik Yoba) and Gary (Ryan Cartwright), desperately search for Skylar Adams (Glau), only to discover that Stanton Parish (recurring guest star John Pyper-Ferguson) has imprisoned her in a twisted form of captivity.
In the Season 2 finale, “God’s Eye”, separated from his team and haunted by vivid hallucinations of his daughter, Dani (guest star Kathleen Munroe), an increasingly desperate Dr. Rosen seeks a final confrontation with malevolent Alpha leader Stanton Parish. Meanwhile, his team of Alphas, with Skylar’s help, battles both the clock and their issues of mutual distrust to try and thwart Parish’s deadly plans.
It was announced at NY Comic-Con that Valiant Entertainment and Sean Daniel (The Mummy) will team with J. Michael Straczynski to adapt Valiant Comics’ Shadowman into a feature film, with JMS writing the script.
Shadowman has sold millions of comics and was adapted as “Shadow Man” for Acclaim’s video game franchise which likewise sold millions of copies, and follows (in the original story) the character who is one day attacked and barely escapes, but then discovers that at night he has supernatural abilities and a desire to rid the world of demons that stalk the night.
The following video shows the storyboarded scene that was never filmed for the mid-season finale of Doctor Who, which addressed the long-rumored departure of the Ponds, and was to feature Mark Williams playing Brian Williams (yes, Mr. Williams played Mr. Williams).
Mr. Moffat, please film this and get it included on the DVDs, NOW. THIS scene has the emotional impact that seemed to be lacking.
