HELIX on SyFy- Season 2 (SPOILERS)

I'm very, very confused.

The top CDC guy [played by Billy Campbell]...

Didn't his brother (infected with the virus from the start)...

Didn't the other virus victims re-infect him after he'd been nearly cured?

Wouldn't he have died when the place was blown/burned?

How in the world is he alive and well in episode 1 of season 2?

Can someone jog my memory? What am I forgetting?

They got me with the rescue fakeout. As I was watching I was thinking "it's two different places, a la Silence of the Lambs - what an overused trope" but was blindsided with it being the same place at two different TIMES, and 30 years different no less. That was enough to hook me back in for season 2.

You're forgetting what happened between the end of last season and the beginning of this...

Please, tho'. Was the brother still infected or not (and apparently blown up/toasted) at the end of season one? I do NOT remember him getting out of there, let alone being cured a second time.

Well, that's the whole point of an in media res beginning...we don't know what happened in between. Presumably, we'll find out as they fill in the gaps.

You did it again. I asked if someone can remember how the first season ended regarding the brother.

I still don't get how the brother survived. The last I remember, the "zombies" had re-infected him. How did he get cured completely?

When? At what point did that happen and how did they get him out of the facility so he didn't turn toasty? I don't recall any of that.

Maybe they were losing me towards the end.

I honestly don't remember either, I think I'll need to go back and watch as well.

They had a cure so I'm not in arms over him being cured, however I'm not so sure if I recall him getting out before the explosions and what not. I also can't recall otherwise though.

Okay. At least it's not just me, then.

I blame Bonnie Hammer.

I think this show did the "a lot of stuff happened between seasons and you'll just have to fill in the missing pieces yourself." Now, if they had really good writers they could show us what happened when it fits going forward, but based on what I've seen so far, I don't see that happening except with a few pieces.

With the cult plus Billy Campbell, I was having The 4400 flashbacks.
