Helix Podcast S2E10 – Mother

Welcome to the Helix Podcast, a fan podcast that dives deep into the SyFy series “Helix.” This week, family matters get even more “complicated” and multiple baby issues ensue. Join us as we talk about Helix Season 2 Episode 10: “Mother.”

We had the privilege to have Alison Louder (Sister Amy) join us for our favorite five and plot discussion. Alison is incredibly insightful, gracious with her time, and fun to talk with. Thanks again to her for joining us.

After each episode, join hosts Ryan Boyles and Tim Arthur as they discuss each Helix episode, share news about the show, interview cast and crew, and bring you predictions on what may be to come.

***Warning: Spoilers Ahead!***


Kyan Krumdieck

Listener and Helix fan from New Zealand that wrote in to explain why we see actors names in the credits that may not actually appear in the episode. Thanks for clarifying that Kyan!

He also shared a potential easter egg. The infamous “Wilhelm Scream” sounds like it appeared in sound mix of the Coast Guard radio static.

For information on the Wilhelm Scream, head to this article.

Music Notes

Brand New Key” by Melanie Safka – our apologies, we incorrectly identified the song as “I’ve got a brand new pair of roller skates” in the episode.
