‘Resident Alien’ Season 2 Refresher


Tonight is the night SYFY’s hit alien comedy-drama Resident Alien returns with the last eight episodes of season two.

The series is based on the Dark Horse comic of the same title by Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse, which follows an alien who crash lands on Earth with a mission to destroy the human population. Finding a cabin on the outskirts of Patience, Colorado, the alien takes over the person who lives there form and identity becoming the quirky Harry Vanderspeigle, a doctor. Because of a series of unfortunate and deadly coincidences and events, Harry becomes the town’s new doctor, where his out-of-this-world adventure truly begins.

Key Season 2 Moments So Far:

  • Harry saved Max and crash-landed again
  • Harry was able to build a radio to communicate with his people
  • The human Harry killed Sam
  • There is a half-human, half-alien baby that hatched from an egg who is on the loose eating faces
  • Sheriff Mike opens up to Deputy Liv about his previous partner and how he died
  • There was an epic and revolutionary girls’ night
  • New alien powers are revealed
  • Without knowing the truth, Deputy Liv’s belief in aliens is proven right
  • A dog killed Harry’s octopus cousin No. 49, so he ate him at the octopus’ request
  • Dr. Ethan was kidnapped by General McCallister, who thinks he is an alien
  • Ben wants to get a resort built in Patience
  • Kate is pregnant
  • Liv is calling the alien tracker to have him come to the town to help her
  • Harry’s people are no longer interested in Earth, but the reason is not a good one
  • Asta saves Harry, but at what cost to her? D’arcy was also there to witness it

Coming Up Next

Episode 9, “Autopsy,” picks up right where “Alien Dinner Party” left off. Viewers won’t have to wait for long to find out what happens. The residents of Patience, Colorado will continue to be put through the wringer as Asta and Harry “must deal with the emotional fallout of the night all while searching for the alien baby — a search that leads to big realizations for each of them, Sheriff Mike and Deputy Liv solve a big case, Ben attempts to sell Patience on a new resort, and D’Arcy fights the challenge of a lifetime.”
