Following the review is a roundup of questions and answers, as well as a detailed recap of the episode.
I quite enjoyed this week's episode of Helix
, there was quite a lot going on. It was great not only to see more of Balleseros, but also to see him and Julia in the present (or near past). It's great to now also know that Julia has not gone over to the dark side. It's unclear if Balleseros is completely on her side, but that's not unexpected with him.
The pieces are starting to connect. We now finally know the reason for NARVIK - to thin the herd so the world will sustain life for just the "essential" people that Ilaria chooses. Obviously, not all the members are on board. This also leads viewers to believe that NARVIK C could potentially be the disease that ended up killing off many of the immortals.
The new storyline with Mademoiselle Durant also seems connected, as she mentioned the rogue immortal that is working on something that can stop Ilaria - obviously leading viewers to believe this immortal to be Brother Michael, which is probably why Balleseros sent Peter to the island (this is assuming these scenes took place before Peter arrived). It doesn't, however, sound like this person though is necessarily doing it to help humanity.
