Tonight’s Episode Of Alphas Was Magnificent. In Tonight’s Episode, The Team Learns That Nina Has Gone Rouge. They Must Find Her, Capture Her, And Help Her In Any Way Possible. Tonight’s Episode Also Focused More On Kat, The Alpha That Can Remember And Master Anything, Within A Matter Of Seconds. I Continue To Love How The Show Gets Me Emotionally Attached To The Characters, And Ultimately Gets Me 100% Invested In The Show. For Fans Of The Hit Series Heroes, Alphas Would Be The Show To Watch, As The Two Are Closely Related. I’ve Loved Alphas Since The Series Premiere, And I’m Becoming An Even Bigger Fan, As Season 2 Progresses. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Alphas. Watch Alphas Live: Monday’s At 10/9C. On SYFY.
