Forever episode 10 review: The Man In The Killer Suit

3 December 2014 4:18 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

There's a case of mistake identity in this week's episode of Forever... but then isn't there always?

This review contains spoilers.

1.10 The Man in the Killer Suit

The latest Forever story suits up to prove the pen is mightier than the sword.

It’s always a curious thing when crime shows cover identity fraud, because by definition everyone involved in the performing side of a TV show is doing exactly that. That’s the subject this week, when Henry is called to unravel the untimely death of an English noble, only to discover he’s neither of those things.

There’s a repeating narrative thread from the outset about how a man’s suit can present him in a specific way, selling an idea, and it’s woven right through the story. There is also an early parallel drawn between the fraudster and Henry, who is hiding his true identity »

‘The Flash’ Preview: Meet Robbie Amell as Ronnie Raymond (Exclusive)

21 October 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On “The Flash,” Grant Gustin’s titular hero isn’t the only character with special abilities, and in the Oct. 21 episode, we’ll meet another DC Comics icon: Robbie Amell’s Ronnie Raymond, aka one half of Firestorm — DC’s “Nuclear Man.” In the series, Ronnie is an engineer on Star Labs’ particle accelerator, the device that imbues Barry, Ronnie and many other bystanders with unforeseen powers after it malfunctions. He’s also the fiance of Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), and this week’s episode will flash back (no pun intended) to the night when the accelerator exploded, supposedly killing Ronnie even as it gifted Barry with super speed.

Amell is no stranger to super powers — having headlined Greg Berlanti, Phil Klemmer and Julie Plec’s “Tomorrow People” for The CW last season — and it’s safe to say that heroics are in his genes, given that his cousin is “Arrow” star Stephen Amell. »

Does 'The Tomorrow People' deserve a second season? -- Poll

6 May 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Last night, The Tomorrow People ended its first season with a complete shift in the world we’ve come to know. But with its renewal status still up in the air, one question remains: Does it deserve a season 2?

In my opinion, the answer’s simple one: Yes. Tomorrow had me semi-hooked from the pilot. I enjoyed its first few episodes, but I wasn’t immediately convinced that I couldn’t live without it. But every time I started to think I might skip an episode or two, the show would throw a new twist my way – and I’d be hooked once more. »

‘The Tomorrow People’ creator promises death, evolution in finale

5 May 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) At the beginning of "The Tomorrow People’s" freshman season, the CW drama’s creator Phil Klemmer promised a coming of age tale. And now with the season finale, the writer is looking to press the show into a more grown up action adventure. After 21 episodes of double crosses, family revelations and battles between the titular evolved teenagers and the clandestine organization known as Ultra, series lead Stephen (Robbie Amell) is set to make up for the mistakes of his scientist father all while his uncle Jedekiah (Mark Pellegrino) uses his newfound power to tear the world apart. And while that conflict has been brewing for a while, Klemmer promised even more big changes as the show turns the page towards what he hopes is a very different, adult Season 2 pickup. In advance of tonight’s season finale – the aptly titled “Son of Man” – Spinoff spoke to the executive »

'Tomorrow People' Ep pitches major time jump for season 2; plus, an exclusive clip from tonight's finale

5 May 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

The Tomorrow People’s first season has been a year full of our favorite T’s: telepathy, telekinesis, teleportation, and twists. From people we never thought would have powers — Marla! — to those who lost them — John! — it’s safe to say that the end of the season looks nothing like the world we were introduced to months ago. And now, after last week’s big shocker, The Tomorrow People finale is shaping up to be an event all its own. What will Jedekiah do now that he has powers? Will Roger survive The Machine? And which characters will die?

31 March 2014 8:46 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Jedekiah Price: Hero or villain? That’s the question every Tomorrow People fan is asking — and one will soon be answered, more or less, according to star Mark Pellegrino. But first, Jedekiah is going on the run, and we’ve got a lot to learn about his relationship with Roger. Plus, what fun would the end of the season be if it didn’t include Jed making a few bad decisions?

We caught up with Pellegrino to talk about Jedekiah’s arc as this season comes to an end, from his “James Bondish” moment to what’s next for him and Morgan. »

Last week, The Tomorrow People’s Stephen Jameson discovered the thing he’d suspected all along, that his father wasn’t cremated after all. But whether that means Roger can come back, and where The Founder fits into all of this is yet to be seen. So with the war between Jedekiah and The Founder coming to a head, what’s going to happen to our favorite telepaths?

5 March 2014 1:20 PM, PST | | See recent news »

The CW drama series The Tomorrow People follows a generation of humans born with paranormal abilities, who are the next evolutionary leap of mankind. Up until a year ago, Stephen Jameson (Robbie Amell) was a “normal” teenager, but then he learned that he is part of a genetically advanced race that is being hunted down by a paramilitary group of scientists known as Ultra. In Episode 15, “Enemy of My Enemy,” Julian (James Mackay) is back and hell bent on revenge against Cara (Peyton List) and striking a deal with Ultra to help him get it, while Astrid (Madeleine Mantock) is plagued by nightmares after her near-death experience and turns to her new friend John (Luke Mitchell) for some comfort.

'The Tomorrow People' Season 1: Betrayal, death and romance coming before the finale

5 March 2014 11:15 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"The Tomorrow People" has been bringing on the twists and surprises in recent Season 1 episodes, but the show is far from finished. Executive producer and showrunner Phil Klemmer talked to Zap2it about what would be coming in the final episodes of the season and teased major deaths, unexpected romances and a whole lot of betrayal.

Zap2it: After revealing Marla's powers and kicking John out of the Tomorrow People lair, where do you go next?

Phil Klemmer: We haven't even scratched the surface of our complications and our reveals. These decisions tend to have ripple effects. I feel like once you blow people's minds, they kind of begin to become desensitized so you have to wheel out some bigger surprises and some bigger heartbreak. I feel like we've done all that. This season is kind of like an avalanche -- it starts with a pebble, and by the »

5 March 2014 9:30 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Another week with The Tomorrow People means another secret will be revealed. Last week, we found out that Jedekiah is still in possession of Roger’s body (and maybe hoping to steal his brother’s powers). So with the show inching toward its season finale, what other secrets do the writers have in store?

We caught up with executive producer Phil Klemmer to talk about Tomorrow’s love triangle, all things Jedekiah, and that Marla twist we still can’t let go. Turns out, neither can Klemmer’s mother. “Moms Klemmer thought that was the coolest,” Phil Klemmer tells EW. »

After last night’s episode, things are already starting to shift in the second half of The Tomorrow People’s premiere season. Stephen’s father is stuck in limbo, Cara is now first in command, and Marla’s new boyfriend appears to be a highly powerful telepath. So where does the story go from here?

'The Tomorrow People': Changes come to 'The Citadel'

15 January 2014 10:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The return of "The Tomorrow People" in 2014 signaled a lot of changes. With "The Citadel" bringing a whole new aspect of Ultra, Cara's leadership instead of John's and some unpleasant revelations about Roger, change was inevitable.

A change in leadership

Obviously, John wasn't going to keep his position of authority once everyone found out that he a) could kill and b) did kill the guy they've been waiting for as a savior for years now. He's lucky that a vote of no-confidence was all that happened.

Thus, Cara is now in charge of the Tomorrow People. What kind of a leader is she? "She is totally like a hawk," executive producer Phil Klemmer told Zap2it in a recent interview. "She goes from being reluctantly taking the reins, to basically a warrior queen ready to take the fight to the doors of Ultra in the course of an episode."

Is John Ok with this? »

'The Tomorrow People': Stephen's loyalties and challenges in upcoming episodes

15 January 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"The Tomorrow People" will be big when the show returns with new episodes on Wednesday (Jan. 15). According to executive producer Phil Klemmer, the stakes will be "the future of life on this planet."

It doesn't get much bigger than that.

Warning: There are a few spoilers in this article. Tread carefully.

Stephen (Robbie Amell) does get to be the hero throughout the rest of the first season, but there will be a lot of hurdles on the way. "You can only play double agent for so long before you're going to be found out," says Klemmer. "Stephen's worlds are on a collision course ... For the back half [of the season], it's definitely much messier. His alter-ego and his ego get all scrambled up and a lot of secrets come out."

Does this mean that Jedikiah (Mark Pellegrino) and the Founder (Simon Merrells) will find out that Stephen has been a double agent for all of this time? »
