Believe "Beginner's Luck" (3/16/14) SPOILERS!

Well, this ep takes some of the mystery out of Bo's gifts. Not a Divine Intervention, but a defense contractor that isolated a gene linked to telekinesis. A part of human evolution. Like seeing in color. So, why "Believe"?

Obviously, the research facility has the resources of the government as needed, because Uncle Sammy wants a weapon. But, how does Winter's team come up with two police cruisers, uniforms and apparently plenty of cash and safe houses whenever they want? Who is backing them?

And now that we know there are others, why is Bo that special? Especially when they have people like "Lion Builder".

What they said right before showing the "Lion Builder" to the woman from the FBI was that he wasn't nearly as powerful as Bo. Considering how powerful the "Lion Builder" seems to be, that would seem to make Bo very special.

Maybe so. But, would you rather have Bo or an army of Lion Builders? Or should I say, which is more useful?

Maybe she can do the same? Perhaps even on a bigger scale even?

What if all the other kids have 1 thing they are good at and she can do it all, but isn't really showing them yet?

The thing she did with the dice, the stuffed animals and the gearbox of that police cruiser is way more focused than we so far knew she could...

Yes, but even she said that she couldn't always make it work. She has potential, but Lion Boy seemed to be able to do his trick at will.

She's still young and unfocused. I'm thinking that the other Kinetic Kids may be older and more comfortable with their talents as well. We'll see as time goes on.

It's been years since I've seen or read it, so my memory is foggy, but isn't this basically tracking the plot of Firestarter, pretty much?
