Alphaville (Alphas)

Alphaville is the sixth episode of the second season of Alphas, an American science fiction dramatic television series created by Zak Penn and Michael Karnow. It follows a group of people with superhuman abilities, known as "Alphas", as they work to prevent crimes committed by other Alphas. In episode "Alphaville," Summer Glau plays a rogue Alpha with an ability for inventing stuff nobody ever seen before.  She is somekind of super-MacGyver, but her stuff is much cooler than Richard Dean Anderson could ever imagine. She has a past with Doctor Rosen’s team.
Plot Summary: Determined to find what the ability-enhancing device (photic stimulator) is fully capable of, Dr. Rosen brings the team to a small community for refugee Alphas, in order to request help from Skylar Adams. Dr. Rosen's daughter compromises everything when she exploits her relationship with Hicks to feed Stanton Parish information. During their visit, Skylar's daughter Zoe gets kidnapped by Parish's men, who want the device back, which amplifies both Scipios and Rachel's abilities. Zoe is rescued by Hicks, Bill and Skylar. In the end, Dr. Rosen tasks Bill with finding the mole in their midst, and Skylar is approached by Stanton Parish.
