Review - Alphas Season 1 Episode 3 Anger Management

Alphas rebounded this week with a strong episode that featured quite a shocking twist, the death of Don Wilson, the guy supervising the whole operation. While the team will remain intact and nothing has really changed, the way in which he died was startling. The alpha releases his pheromones, inducing everyone, except Bill, into violence. This is something that happens on sci-fi shows once in a while, but this scene is all out bonkers--changing colors, camera wildly swinging everywhere, people pounding each other, and finally, Wilson beaten to death with a chair. In total the ordeal lasts less than two minutes, but was stylized in such as way as to be very disorienting and memorable for the viewer.

I'm fairly certain this episode was supposed to be the second episode instead of the third, with the female supervisor last week, so the character development in the episode may have already happened. Still, it's unlikely anything will be notably different.

Score: 8.8/10
