EXCLUSIVE | 'War of the Worlds' Episode 6 sneak peek reveals Sarah Gresham has been contemplating suicide
An exclusive sneak peek released to MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) by EPIX shows Sarah confess to Helen that she has been contemplating suicide because of the constant despair caused by the alien invasion
Since the beginning of the alien invasion in EPIX's 'War of the Worlds', those who survived have lived in a constant state of fear and tension. Gone are the days when people could sleep in peace or step outside their doors secure in the knowledge that they would return. Considering the sheer amount of stress these characters are under on a daily basis, it's a miracle none of them have had a heart attack. Or worse.
An exclusive sneak peek released to MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) by EPIX shows Sarah Gresham (Natasha Little) confess to Helen Brown (Elizabeth McGovern) that she has been contemplating suicide because of all the constant despair caused by the alien invasion. In the clip, Helen consoles Sarah and reveals that she herself almost killed herself and that the only reason she didn't was because she knew Bill Ward (Gabriel Byrne) wouldn't be able to take it.
The sneak peek also reveals that the women are planning to throw Sarah's son Tom Gresham (Ty Tennant) a birthday party. It's pretty much a yell of defiance in the face of their doom but there's always the possibility that the aliens may end up being attracted to the noise, which would cut the festivities short and may even lead to some casualties.
A trailer for the episode that's available on the EPIX website shows Emily Gresham (Daisy Edgar-Jones) stopping one of the killer alien cyborgs from attacking, seemingly by telepathically communicating with it somehow. We also see Bill and Tom analyzing the aliens and discovering that they are scanning human DNA for some unknown purpose.
Here's the synopsis for the upcoming episode: "The alien’s connection to certain survivors raises difficult questions. Bill makes a startling discovery. Sacha’s behavior is increasingly erratic. And Tom’s birthday proves cause for celebration. But at what cost?"
The cast list for 'War of the Worlds' Season 1 includes Daisy Edgar-Jones as Emily Gresham, Bayo Gbadamosi as Kariem Gat Wich Machar, Aaron Heffernan as Ash Daniel, Ty Tennant as Tom Gresham, Gabriel Byrne as Bill Ward, Natasha Little as Sarah Gresham, Elizabeth McGovern as Helen Brown, Adel Bencherif as Colonel Mokrani, and Léa Drucker as Catherine Durand, along with Stephen Campbell Moore, Mathieu Torloting, and Stéphane Caillard.
