Ah, the shifting sands of alliances, partnerships, and coalitions continues to swirl about Helix as the strange bedfellows that go inside and outside the sheets begins to heat up.
Hmmm, shifting sands in an Arctic setting? Things "heating up" in that frozen wasteland?
Sure why not?
After last week's sexual romps during "Aniqatiga" it looked like we were in for much of the same once Sergio and Constance were left alone. Naturally, they fell into each others arms. It looked as though Constance was going to beat something out of him but it turns out he just likes it a little rough. Sergio has gained an ally and a powerful one at that. Things looked pretty dim for our Brazilian friend as he was brought handcuffed and humiliated before Daniel and his security team. As it turns out this was just an avenue to create a new alliance between Anana her long lost brother, Miksa.
The power couple that ended the last episode in each others arms seems to have tempered a bit. Alan and Sarah were just a bit self conscious over their deed and felt it better to stay focused and opt to find a cure.
Was this a mistake to split? Shouldn't have Sarah kept Alan close? As we were to find out later it seems to be a mistake.
Hatake's relationship with Julia may come in handy as his power base was seriously deteriorated by Daniel finding out the true nature of his relationship with Anana and that of Hatake. Daniel professed earlier he just wanted to be trusted. Now that need for trust has surely evaporated. Add to this the disapproval by Constance Sutton and her willingness to slap Hatake in every manner means Hatake's little empire is sure to crumble.
Is there a loser in all these goings on? As mentioned earlier Sarah may have misstepped when she went all professional with the post coital Alan. Now she is on the outside looking in. Her one card to play is the secret pact she made with Alan to keep the cure a secret. She just needs to move Julia out of the picture. Hatake for his part can dangle a cure in front of Sarah. Okay, all is not lost for our "pretty" just a little dim at the moment.
The Silver Eyed Club
What's the most powerful group of them all and they don't know it yet? How about our silver eyed friends? Julia has now joined the ranks with Hatake and guess who else is a memeber?
Constance Sutton has that moonlit glow to her peepers which means she has also fallen victim to the virus and it's semi-effectual cure.
Did I say cure? Maybe I should have said curse. Judging by Hatake's tears he may have saved Julia but also doomed her. Stabbing headaches may only be one symptom of the silver eyes. Something salved and hidden by contact lenses. I fear there is something alot worse to come.
Sutton grinding down her teeth is our best clue. Silver eyes, stabbing headaches and the ability to ward of rampaging vectors is all very useful but is there a downside?
How about sharpened fangs for teeth? I think that is what Sutton was doing in order to hide her condition. I'm guessing anyone with the silver eyes also manifest strange other physical attributes. The fangs may be just the tip.
Are we ready for this show to take a supernatural turn? Will our silver eyed friends take on the appearance of something vampiric or that of the werewolf?
Raise your hand if you are ready for that.
Hiyo Silver is all I say! It won't be long before they are forced together for the good of the greater population. Will their alliance last? As long as they need each other it will.
What was that old saying about keeping your friends close but your enemies closer?
Oh, Helix, where are you taking us next week?
