Review:

Tonight’s Season 2 Finale Of Alphas Was Powerfully Magnificent! In Tonight’s Episode, Rosen Was Focused On Taking Down Parish. The Team Learns That Parish Placed The Photostims, In Power Boxes. Parish Disguised The Photostims As Power Grid Protectors. The Team Ultimately Shuts Down The Power, City Wide. Rosen Follows Parish To Grand Central Station. The Team Converges At The Station, And Learns That They Cannot Shut Down The Power, At The Station. Ultimately Rosen Decides Not To Kill Parish, As It Is What Dani Would’ve Wanted. The Photostims Then Activate, And Everyone In The Station Collapses. The Photostims Don’t Affect Gary, And He Is The Only Person Left Standing. Gary Begins Wandering The Station, Among The Presumably Dead Civilians. Gary Finds The Team, Along With Parish, Collapsed On The Floor. It’s Not Clear If The Team And Parish Are Alive, As Season 2 Draws To An Epic Ending. I’ve Been A Fan Of Alphas For 2 Years, And The Show Definitely Has Me Invested. Alphas Continues To Surprise, And Keep Me Intrigued, And I Will Remain A Huge Fan Of  The Show. Tonight’s Finale Left Us With A Huge Cliffhanger, And I Hope That The Show Returns For A Third Season. There Is No Official Word Yet On A Third Season, But We Will Inform You, If We Hear Any Word About A Third Season.
