Tonight’s Episode Of Alphas Was Great! In Tonight’s Episode, The Team Went In Search Of Skylar, To Get Her To Help Figure Out What The Photic Stimulator Was Being Used For. Skylar Helped The Team Learn A Little More About The Device. The Team Has Learned That When The Device Is Used On Alphas, It Intensifies Their Abilities. Along The Way, Zoe (Skylar’s Daughter) Was Taken By Some Of Stanton Parrish’s Henchmen. Skylar Saved Her Daughter, And The Two Of Them Fled. Stanton Approached Skylar, And Asked Her To Join His Movement. Skylar Is Shown Reaching For A Weapon To Use On Stanton, But It’ Not Revealed What She Does. I’ve Been A Fan Of Alphas Since The Series Premiere, And I’m Becoming An Even Bigger Fan, As Season 2 Progresses. I Can’t Wait For Next Week’s Episode. There’s No Official Word Yet On A Third Season, But I’m Hoping That The Show Gets Renewed. Overall, I Would Absolutely Recommend Alphas. Watch Alphas Live: Monday’s At 8/7C. On SYFY.

Side-Note: Be Sure To Remember That Alphas Has Moved Into The 8:00 Time-slot. If You Miss The Episode However, You Can Always Catch An Encore Of It, On The Same Night, at 10/9C.
