Resident Alien: Season 2, Episode 2 Recap – “The Wire”
Whoo-ee! I’m still trying to make sense of everything that happened in tonight’s new episode of Foreign resident on SYFY? We’ve got you covered with a quick video recap of all the main plot beats. Harry’s doomsday bunker? Yeah! Max’s out of control hair? You bet! The latest on the murder investigation led by Sheriff Mike and Deputy Liv? Oh, most certainly!
“The only way to keep this relatable on a human level is to just ground every element of it as much as possible, including the extraterrestrial, and really try to make his journey as an extraterrestrial reflect the human challenges that we all have,” showrunner Chris Sheridan said in our in-depth interview about the new season. “And, feel connected to a regular audience who may or may not be interested in extraterrestrials. Or they may be, but would like to see a bit of themselves in it.”
A big shake-up this season sees our favorite alien receive a new power-up that allows him to take the form of other Human being. This will come in handy when the best of Patience returns with an arrest warrant for Doctor Vanderspeigle. Still, one has to wonder if this growing suspicion will affect his slow-thawing attitude toward humanity.
“We wanted to take the next step in Harry’s evolution towards a more complete concept of humanity,” Sheridan said in an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette dedicated to the season opener. “We’re trying to deal with empathy a bit more this season. He’s starting to see that other people are upset and feeling upset because of those emotions from someone outside of him.”
The first two episodes of Foreign resident Season 2 is now available to stream on the SYFY app. New episodes — airing on SYFY every Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST — will arrive on Peacock the day after they air. Buckle up because there are plenty more alien shenanigans to come!
