'The Passage': Episode 5 trailer teases an unsuccessful escape and Amy's growing superpowers
It looks like episode 5 will be the one where we see Amy become a superhero without turning into a vampire
'Whose Blood Is That?' explored the heartbreaking past of Anthony Carter (McKinley Belcher III) and a terrifying future after Tim Fanning (Jamie McShane), patient Zero, gained full control of him. The scientists and doctors of Project NOAH cannot guarantee the safety of their own lives anymore, so forget Amy Bellafonte's (Saniyya Sidney) protection that Dr. Jonas Lear (Henry Ian Cusick) and Dr. Major Nichole Sykes (Caroline Chikezie) assured.
The teaser for the upcoming episode titled 'How You Gonna Outrun The End of The World?' is both something to worry about as well as an episode to take a seat back and heave a sigh of relief. The genre-bending Fox series 'The Passage,' neatly couples sci-fi with the supernatural to tell a dystopian tale of the good and the bad. Episode 5 executes that and it takes a 30-second trailer to showcase its brilliance.
An ominous atmosphere looms as we hear Sister Lacey (Kecia Lewis) look up into the sky, shed a few tears and say, "I feel something terrible is going to happen," and simultaneously we see Brad Wolgast's wife, Dr. Lila Kyle (Emmanuelle Chriqui), in church praying, when suddenly, she's attacked. Note Sister Lacy and Lila are together, and it looks like the duo has taken refuge in the church because, let's not forget, Lacy was a nun before she turned into a bada** Navy warfare teacher.
As for our favorite duo, Amy and agent Wolgast (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), we see him make a promise he's not going anywhere and comforts Amy, who looks like she is already evolving. From reading minds, to running faster than Wolgast, Amy has now turned into Wolgast's protector. Towards the end of the trailer, the manipulative vampire David Winston (who provoked Paulson to commit a mass shooting) is seen escaping and attacking Wolgast. Amy screams, and it is supersonic enough to throw the vampire off from attacking her "agent."
Concern comes when Carter is heard saying the "hard part is getting her ready for what's coming," and that definitely means Fanning is coming to get Amy, as he did with Carter. However, Amy and Wolgast are now ready to escape from the facility, and we see them making plans. "How do you feel about getting out of this place?" Wolgast asks Amy, who questions, "You got a plan?"
Wolgast looks like he does, because remember when Amy was crystal clear to Wolgast about she not wanting him to "be without a plan"? "We are going to run away as far as we can," he replies. Ummm... smart! Our hope of their escape is immediately dashed when we see Wolgast interrogated and beaten by Clark Richards (Vincent Piazza).
As for the heartbreaking love story, we see Lear embracing his wife, Elizabeth, who looks better than she ever did and gives us hope she is tackling Alzheimer's well. But what's the catch? We see Fanning, who is, after all, the mastermind of everything that is going on.
'The Passage' airs Mondays on Fox at 9/8c.
