So for this whole month I haven’t gotten to really sit down and celebrate Halloween, and at the rate things are going, I don’t think I’ll get to do much on the actual holiday either. To make it up to myself, though..well, you see what happened. 4 times. ..With 13 characters.
Anyway; had a huge amount of fun doing these! Don’t count out the chance of another one showing up before the holiday’s over!
Just in case anyone was as in need of closure as I was. Zack Penn made up a post-season 2 finale story for Alphas. It was vaguely sarcastic, but at least he didn’t Peter Van Houten us. If you missed it, here is the story:
“Dr. Rosen lived. Hicks and Nina ended up together. Rachel went back to civilian life. Bills kid was an alpha. Gary ends up the leader of a reconstituted, less violent Red Flag. Parish dies of a viral infection that targets his peculiar chemistry. Rosen ends up getting back together with his ex wife. They move to Binghamton, NY, where he gets tenure in the psychology dept.
Alpha abilities continue to evolve. The next generation can communicate with each other through non traditional means. It turns out that they are heading towards a communal, hive like consciousness. It has its pluses and minuses. Gary can’t stand it.
Nothing wraps up too neatly. Being an alpha ends up neither blessing nor curse, simply different.
Hicks and Nina’s kids are really good looking but a handful. Hicks falls off the wagon a few times. Nina pushes him back on.
Zooey emancipates at age 12. Skyler disappears one day and is never seen again. Dr. Rosen figures out the mechanism behind Kats memory. She gains a long term memory, but loses her alpha ability. Ill equipped to deal with normal life, hers ends tragically.
Zooey becomes a Senator, with help from Rosen. Later she turns on her own kind.
Rachel dumps John, ends up marrying an Orthodox Jew named Barry Shapiro. He is quiet and smart and clean. Rachel cheats on him a few times.
Bill starts meditating and goes back to the FBI.
Hicks’s brother in law clears up his gambling debts. Cley gets a job as a high powered lawyer/lobbyist for a big energy company.
A guy named Barry Shump assassinates Gary Bell at a rally. Gary is 47 years old.
None of the “bad alphas” reform their ways– Most end up dead or in prison.
It turns out that donut shops are part of a vast alpha conspiracy.
Sullivan has a long affair with a General who keeps promising to leave his wife. He never does.
Bill and Rosen stay in touch. Rosen helps Bill with his alpha kids.
Gary accomplishes a great deal in his life. “Bellism” is coined to refer to underestimating people because of their neural differences. Gary never does settle down, and he resents it when people suggest that he needs to be in love. That’s their opinion.
An alpha named Mike Werbe ends up inventing a form of zip up one piece clothing that makes him a billionaire.
Dr. Rosen dyes his beard blue in solidarity with an alpha who is extradited to South America. (An all alpha country exists there.)
Also, to clarify, Hicks’ brother in law is from his first wife. He has serious gambling debts.“
From Zack’s twitter account. Here’s where it starts!
Why did Alphas get cancelled? I just finished the first season. Alright so the first few episodes weren’t that great. I get it. But eventually the characters grow on you and you’re not able to read that book you’re reading…and no longer using the show as background noise…and are actually interested in what is going on
On top of this…it’s another show I’m watching on Netflix that is going to end without “an end”. No closure :O why do I do this.
