The Nevers Episode 2 Spoilers
The pilot episode of ‘The Nevers’ sets up many diverging plot points that will likely be covered in the rest of the season. It also enlightens the viewers about the arrival of the spaceship and how the Touched have received their powers. Episode 2, titled ‘Exposure,’ might make use of flashback scenes to showcase what happens immediately after they begin to find out about their powers. Maladie and maybe Amalia seem to be the only two people who remember everything that happened to them on that fateful day.
The episode might showcase how that played a part in their metamorphoses to what they are now. The exact relationship between Detective Frank Mundi and Mary, the girl kidnapped by Maladie and her gang, might also be revealed in episode 2. We might also learn what they want from Mary. The pilot gives some hints on what transpires at Hugo’s exclusive gentleman’s club, The Ferryman. It appears that Mundi arranges the girls for the club that is frequented by some of the wealthiest and most influential members of British society.
In a strange chain of events, Hugo takes photos of them in compromised states and uses them to extort money. The second episode might shed more light on the scheme concocted by Hugo and Mundi by showing some of their victims. Augie might go to the club to keep his promise to Hugo to attend the opera. Episode 1 also depicts a group of hooded and bandaged men who tries to abduct a Touched girl, but Amalia and Penance foil their plan.
Episode 2 might reveal more information about them and their maniacal leader, who conducts barbaric experiments on the Touched. Faith seems to be a major theme in the story; both the protagonists and antagonists feel that God was involved in their transformation. This notion might be further explored through the perspectives of various characters in the next episode.
