You know how every time the Copelands of Syfy’s Aftermath make it through one crisis, there’s four more waiting for them to tackle? A plague? The show’s next episode is a lot like that. So be prepared. Right to the very end of the hour.

After accepting help from an old friend, Karen is tormented by a harbinger of death, and the Copelands learn that no refuge is truly safe.

Sneak Peek

For years, we’ve been inundated with post-apocalyptic movies and TV series. What’s keeping me tuned into Aftermath:

  1. Anne Heche and James Tupper. I adore the fact the Men in Trees alums (they’re also a real-life couple) have reunited for this project. And I really like the dynamic that exists between their characters. Karen’s the tough one that was in the Air Force. She’s a leader, who’s fearless, but she’s not perfect. Heche plays her with this sharp edge I think is great. Joshua’s the sort of hot book nerd researcher guy. But he’s not beyond doing what needs to be done in the face of a world of crazy. I won’t ever forget he used cyanide to off those guys who were after the medicine and weren’t beyond using and potentially killing his daughter. That was so cold and I rejoiced. Is something wrong with me?
  2. The Supernatural. I am not quite sure what’s going on here, but there are a ton of supernatural-type elements making life hell on Earth. Skin Walkers are possessing people. Water demons are making themselves known. Some sort of fever plague turns people into crazy feverheads. Strange monsters are flying around going after horses and cattle. Who knows what else is out there, which makes me curious as to how this happening and where this is all going to go.
  3. Character-Driven goodness. Admittedly, I’m not super attached to these characters just yet. But there are some things that I’m loving like Brianna, who has stepped her game up in the wake of this madness. As opposed to her fraternal twin sister, she’s not the one people think of as having brains. But she clearly does. She was separated from her family and was able to exist and get back to them despite the many, MANY obstacles standing in her way. She already seems to be growing up. And, again, I really love the dynamic between Karen and Joshua. They’re just so interesting. Hopefully, we’ll be getting more for depth for all the characters soon.

Aftermath “A Clatter and a Chatter” continues the relentless nature of the show. Karen has to deal with something supernatural that’s specific to her. The family finds a new shelter, where Dana makes a new friend (this friend is of the male persuasion). The leader of said shelter is someone familiar to one of the Copelands. This is also the chance to see guest star Wayne Brady in a whole different way. The character the Let’s Make a Deal host and Whose Line is it Anyway comedian plays is funny, badass and a little bit shady. Not sure if he’s going to prove to be trustworthy in the long run.

Aftermath airs tomorrow night at 10pm on Syfy and on Space Channel.
