The Tomorrow People #1.16 – Superhero
By Anna – 17 March 2014
A new breakout is in town using their powers to save humans and leaves a rose as her calling card. Ultra wants to find her and kill her. She is a superhero and is being called the Red Avenger. She will also have ties to Russell and his past in the Vegas days.
Cara and John are back together as a couple reconnecting.
Stephen has TIM analyse the device that is reacting to him which seems to be a key of some sorts which is bound to Roger’s DNA. Stephen believes that Jedikiah is lying that he didn’t cremate his father and that he is still alive. Stephen would like to have Jedikiah’s mind read but Cara is against the idea.
Russell takes Stephen to a bar for the night to get drunk to forget about Cara. When Russell hears about the breakout it sets us back to a flashback 4 years ago in Vegas to a casino where Russell meets Talia. The both of them used to hustle the casinos until one day she took off and wanted to start using her powers to help others.
Stephen confronts Russell about him knowing the Superhero, Talia (Melissa Roxburgh). Russell would like to find her as they have unfinished business.
Morgan (Carly Pope) goes to John advising that Stephen will never get inside Jedikiah’s head to find out where Roger is. She wants to try as Jedikiah should trust her. John says it is not safe to be in Jedikiah’s brain. He will cover for Morgan while she goes topside from Cara.
TIM locates the Superhero in a bar in Little Saigon, so Stephen and Russell go looking for her. Stephen gets paranormal vibes that she is under them in the bar. She is going after a Vietnamese money laundering gang. The boys get knocked out by the Superhero but learn that she is not Talia but Mallory going by the name of Red Avenger. Mallory is following the legacy of Talia to help humans. She doesn’t want to hide and wants to stay topside to continue her mission to help humans.
Morgan goes to see Jedikiah to make love to him so she can get into his head.
Cara senses Stephen that he is using his powers aboveground and that he is having fun. With Russell and Mallory they save a Federal Judge and his family from the Vietnamese gang. Cara and John teleport to the house to see what is happening when Hillary and Ultra arrive. Hillary notices Stephen’s wristband from the bar on the kitchen bench, he’s in trouble now.
Cara is not happy with what went down. Russell wants to change and reconsider their position for The Tomorrow People and go topside and do some good instead of playing defence. He says to Cara “We were born great, so that we may do great things, so chooses greatness.”
John tells Cara that Morgan went topside to go see Jedikiah. We find out that Morgan is pregnant.
At Ultra, Hillary is working out on the punching bag getting her frustrations out. She doesn’t want Stephen to lie to her about the wristband that was found at the Federal Judge’s house. Hillary tells Stephen of her past when she was 10 years old when escape convicts broke into their house and her mother and brother were killed while she hid under the bed. When she broke out with her powers she swore that she would help people and this is why she joined Ultra to kick ass.
Morgan seduces Jedikiah and then proceeds to read his mind, but he senses it. He is angry and starts to strangle her, but John teleports in and puts a gun on Jedikiah to let her go. John convinces Jedikiah to let Morgan go as he would be killing the woman he loves and is carrying his unborn child. Jedikiah shocked.
At the Federal Courthouse the Vietnamese gang have taken hostages. Russell, Stephen and Mallory are going to save the hostages. Mallory suggests that the boys wear tights to hide their identity. Unfortunately, Ultra is onto them as well and is going after them. Stephen warns John and Cara about what is going down to get Russell and Mallory out. Ultra misses the superhero.
Mallory leaves and passes the mantle on to Russell. Talia returns to see Russell and is happy that he has become the person she wanted him to be in saving people.
Morgan lets Stephen, Cara and John know that she didn’t read much in Jedikiah’s mind only some memories. One was going to a butchers shop with Roger. John remembers that it is an Ultra front. Cara tries to read John’s mind to see what she can find out. She finds out Broadway and Bedford Streets where the shop is.
Hillary goes to see Stephen at his house. She feels that working with Stephen is making her soft. She realises that he never wanted to capture the breakout but to overt the operation. They have a steamy kiss. She plans to debrief Stephen further. Could the two of them be getting closer? If Cara is connected to Stephen how will she react when she feels Stephen and Hillary being together?
Stephen takes the key device to Bedford Cuts where it homes in on Roger. On entering the shop Stephen finds his father in cryogenics. Jedikiah finds Stephen by his father’s side and says he loved him too. Jedikiah figured out that Morgan read his mind and told Stephen and it was all deceitful.
So Stephens’s father was never cremated. What stories will both of them tell each other? Will Jedikiah realise that Stephen is a double agent?
