Friday night is often a dead zone when it comes to finding good TV, but thankfully Ron Moore’s Helix has given our DVRs something productive to do with the first night of the weekend. The fourth episode of the show’s initial 13 episode run premieres tonight on Syfy, and you can bet things are only going to get worse up there in the Arctic. Never mess around with creepy black fluids, man. Mulder and Scully could have told you that.
Tonight’s episode is called “Single Strand,” and the synopsis is unsurprisingly vague:
Alan and the team deal with secrets and suspicion as the crisis heightens and deadly consequences follow. Meanwhile, Walker tries to survive on Level R.
