Alphas is coming back on tv this Summer, starting with the second season premiere on July, 23 at 10pm on Syfy.
The season finale saw Dr Rosen standing against the government and revealing to the public the existence of the Alphas. The second season begin height months later with Dr Rosen in prison and his Alpha team disbanded.
Summer Glau guest starred in episode 1.07 "Catch and Release" and will reprise her role as Skylar Adams for three episodes. I took this opportunity to list five reasons why Summer Glau did the right thing by taking on this role.
Warning : this blog contains spoilers.
1) Played by Summer Glau
Every role she plays is Emmys material; she is so talented, driven, and engaged that she excels almost immediately in any part she plays. Her subtile and heartbreaking performance are what makes a character believable, and Skylar Adams is no exception.
2) The Terminator references
I know, i've said previously that those references can be distracting from the main plot and that their main role is to please the fans from other shows Summer played in. But to be honest, if well done, these small homages to previous roles are funny and fans loves them so...
3) The tatoos and the hairstyle
Summer Glau's look in season one episode "Catch and Release" was a bit of a shock but most fans liked it i guess; i aknowledge that this grungy, edgy look fitted with the rebellious side of Skylar Adams, as shown in the first part of the episode.
4) Exploring the character
Here's what Summer Glau said during the Alphas panel at this year San Diego Comic-Con :
She said she was really excited to get to explore what happened to Skylar after she escaped the government at the end of her episode in season one.
5) Showcase for Summer Glau's talent
It seems that Summer Glau is trying to expand the range of her roles and explore other genres, as proven by her guest appearance in Grey's Anatomy or the filming of TNT's drama pilot Scent of the Missing for example.
