The Tomorrow People Season 1 Review “Thanatos”

In Greek mythology, Thanatos was the daemon personification of death. He was feared by mortals and hated by the gods. In the realm of The Tomorrow People, they may have given that designation to another scientist, but I’d say Jedikiah pretty much fits the bill. He is feared by humans and (although they aren’t gods) hated by the tomorrow people. Yep. I’d say it’s a pretty good analogy. This episode pretty much focused on Jedikiah, and it was a rather interesting character study.

Stephen told John and the others about his vision of his father, and he wanted them to help him figure out what Thanatos is. Somehow or other the braintrust of Stephen, Cara, and Russell came up with the idea of sneaking into Jedikiah’s house and reading his mind. I don’t know at what point that sounded like a good plan, but they were all gung ho about it; over John’s strenuous objection. Naturally, things didn’t go as planned. Jedikiah woke up and Russell accidentally teleported Jedikiah back to the hideout. Instead of immediately getting him out of there, the braintrust decided to keep him there to question him about Thanatos. Seriously. Why does John keep letting those three come up with the plan? At any rate, Cara kept trying to read his mind, but Jed has apparently learned a few tricks to keep people out of his head.
