WE WERE BORN TO DO GREAT THINGS - Stephen (Robbie Amell) is still walking a fine line with his Ultra partner Hillary (guest star Alexa Vega), who continues to be suspicious of his loyalties. When the Tomorrow People and Ultra learn that there is a new break-out doing good for humans, they both want her on their side.
Meanwhile, Morgan (guest star Carly Pope) takes a risk and betrays Jedikiah's (Mark Pellegrino) trust to help the Tomorrow People, but what Jedikiah discovers from Morgan is an even bigger surprise. Luke Mitchell, Peyton List and Aaron Yoo also star. Dermott Downs directed the episode written by Micah Schraft and Alex Katsnelson (#116).
They are the next evolutionary leap of mankind, a generation of humans born with paranormal abilities - the Tomorrow People. Stephen Jameson stands at the crossroads between the world we know and the shifting world of the future. Up until a year ago, Stephen was a "normal" teenager - until he began hearing voices and teleporting in his sleep, never knowing where he might wake up.
Now, Stephen's issues have gone far beyond the usual teenage angst, and he is beginning to question his sanity. In desperation, Stephen decides to listen to one of the voices in his head, and it leads him to his first encounter with the Tomorrow People - John, Cara and Russell - a genetically advanced race with the abilities of telekinesis, teleportation and telepathic communication. The Tomorrow People are being Hunted down by a paramilitary group of scientists known as Ultra. Led by Dr. Jedikiah Price, Ultra sees the Tomorrow People as a very real existential threat from a rival species, and the outcast group has been forced to hide out in an abandoned subway station just beneath the surface of the human world.
Trading in secrets, Jedikiah offers Stephen the chance for a normal life with his family and best friend, Astrid, if he will help in the struggle to isolate and eradicate the Tomorrow People. On the other hand, Cara, John and Russell offer Stephen a different type of family and a home where he truly belongs. Unwilling to Turn his back on humanity or the world of the Tomorrow People, Stephen sets out on his own path - a journey that could take him into the shadowy past to uncover the truth about his father's mysterious disappearance, or into an unknown future with THE TOMORROW PEOPLE. The series stars Robbie Amell ("Revenge") as Stephen, Luke Mitchell ("H20: Just Add Water") as John, Peyton List ("Mad Men") as Cara, Aaron Yoo ("Disturbia," "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist") as Russell, Mark Pellegrino ("Lost," "Supernatural") as Dr. Jedikiah Price, and Madeleine Mantock (upcoming "All You Need is Kill") as Astrid.
