Helix "Level X" (2/28/14) SPOILERS!

Okay, when Hatake said "You have your father's eyes", my first thought was Rosemary's Baby! But, that seems unlikely. Julia is probably his clone. And what the hell is Hatake anyway?

After seeing all of the germs they have down in the vault, it reminded me that the CDC stores that type of thing as well. I'm now thinking that there may not be enough security around that place. They should have troops. And tanks. And submarines. Like Fort Knox.

BTW, the woman in that half picture looked exactly like Julia. Can a clone come from two different sources? I'm not up to date on my cloning techniques.

I'm back to having no idea what's going on. Well, other than Balleseros and Anana will be doing it pretty soon.

Clone? I just figured he is here actual father. After she got infected, Hatake injected her with something that brought out her latent abilities and "cured" her. Hmm, ok, maybe clone isn't so implausible.

I'm surprised they have equipment that allows them to be outside but not to survive the temps in the base without power.. /s In the Helix world heat-sinks do not exist.

He's 'much older than she could possibly imagine'. I wonder how old he is?

This episode felt dumber than usual to me. Shutting down the power and the building cooling down so quickly. Vectors paralyzed by the cold. Nobody tells head CDC guy that there's going to be a bazillion vials and he'll have to search them all. Vectors scared of Julia, allowing our heroes to safely escape.

They had all of the vectors in one spot and effectively neutralized for 20 minutes. Just sedate them all, warm the place back up, and confine them at your leisure. Then you can go hunting for vials of viruses without vectors to worry about.

(though my plan would never work, as you can't confine anyone in this place without them immediately escaping)

Arrrgh! This show depends so much on what are supposed to be extremely intelligent characters acting incredibly dumb! I had such high hopes for the show, but I have to stop watching or I'm eventually going to throw something through the TV screen in frustration.....

That was exactly my thought at the time. I looked at my wife and said, "She's obviously extremely distraught, I think I'll creep her out as much as possible."

I've been thinking clone all along. She doesn't look very Japanese to me. Then again, Mr. Twins and their sister don't look Eskimo to me either. *ducks sucker punch*

I'm not sure where you guys are getting Clone from, unless you're trying to predict a twist which is of course totally possible for this show.

On the surface I think it's been pretty straightforward that he is her real father. His unconditional care for her from the beginning. The episode where Sutton actually referenced her as his Daughter, the photo, and in the last episode, where he told her that she has his father's eyes (duh she has glowing eyes and he does too).

Hatake is more likely a clone than his daughter at this point.

Remember Hatake has the ability to "repair" himself, I'm sure his ability to "repair" also grants him long life and anti-aging. Perhaps even immortality.

Too bad Julia didn't know about this sooner--she could still look 19.

I wouldn't call it "sleep"....copulation would be more like it. But, yes, they DID "sleep" together.

I just figured she was referring to a previous time when maybe it was in a bedroom location. (previous in their history not the shows)
