Everybody pay attention that Alphas ratings are going down way before Summers episode! There is no way that she influenced the ratings in any way!

So if Alphas gets cancelled it would be solely the fault of the show and not Summer or any of the guest stars. Besides if Alphas gets cancelled then Alaina Huffman is at two big cancellations also but I don't think that these are her fault.

I think everybody should be warned of this before somebody gets a "funny" idea.

This episode has definitively lots of potential; i'm sure the part with the special abilities will be handled very professionally by the writers but i hope the story underneath Summer's abilities and her the way her characters evolves (if so) will be strong too.


I agree. The character should get sufficient backstory and character development. Besides if Summer gets good material she usually turns a character into one of the most brilliant characters in sci-fi history so its worth working on her character. If that is the case then she should get a recurring role(if everything goes well) in the show I think.


Summer Glau is so awesome, it isn't even funny!

I admire your dedication Blazius but i'm afraid this is a lost cause. The internet if full of doofus, you and me cannot changed that.
Trying to give them reasonnable arguments is useless...but that doesn't mean we cannot write them anyway whenever it's needed.

I just thought that because we are in the process of the cancellation not after its better if we can show everybody step by step the process and show them that Summer has nothing to do with it. Besides this would be the best time to examine what really caused it.

Maybe its too early to bury the show just yet but the signs are not good as fa as I can tell.

There are some thumbnails here http://www.nbcumv.com/mediavillage/networks/syfy/alphas/photos

Sadly one need to be member of the press to download highres. The picture info says Summer character is named Skylar.

Summer Glau's character in Alphas is named Skylar, according to NBC, which is a clear reference to Sylar, played by Zachary Quinto in Heroes.

Quote (Wikipedia)
Gabriel Gray, more commonly known by his assumed name of Sylar (a name obtained from a brand of watch he encountered as a watchmaker), is one of the primary antagonists and antiheroes in the NBC drama Heroes. Portrayed by Zachary Quinto, he is a superpowered serial killer who targets other superhumans in order to steal their powers. He served as the primary villain of the first season and then as a recurring antagonist. After being rescued from a mental prison by Peter Petrelli in "The Wall", Sylar has now identified himself as a hero in "Brave New World".

It seems to me that she has to protect its content and has to deliver it somewhere while fighting her way through bad guys.

BTW she doesn't seem to be 100% again but thats the legacy of River Tam I guess.

Interesting you used the word "deliver" : could a member say if this weird red/yellow bag is used by courier for example. When i saw it first i thought it was a pizza delivering bag.
Alphas, especially if they're young as says the synospis, always seems a bit 'lost' because of their abilities but Dr Rosen would not agree with you wink
