The Whispers: Darkest Fears Review

Minx and Lena in The Whispers
The Whispers last week ended with the man who killed the first Drill being murdered by the new one. Not before the parents learned how to destroy the alien though and in Darkest Fears Wes Lawrence becomes more than proactive in his hunt for Drill and the goal of killing the entity. The way to take Drill out was highlighted in the previous episode; once he possesses a child, Drill can be killed.

Secretary of Defense Frommer briefed the president about how to kill the alien and he made it clear that the prospect of murdering a child did not bother him in the least. Frommer has always been a despicable character, threatening Sean and attempting to kidnap Bennigan’s son Henry. As cold blooded as Drill is, Frommer (perhaps because he is a human monster) beats the entity hands down in terms of the willingness to do harm.

A young boy, Nicholas, has no friends and his father does not understand or like him. Nicholas’ dad has the one thing that Drill needs, codes which he will use later on. The alien is getting weaker as the energy it is consuming lacks the nourishment needed to survive for a long time period. It is explained that Drill’s eating electricity is like a human trying to sexist on celery.

Claire and Wes come up with a plan to use the Washington D.C. power grid to trap Drill and starve him to death. Drill has made friends with Nicholas Brewster, whose dad has the DSN Code Key list. Henry is ill. The boy has continual headaches and Sean takes his son to the hospital for Dr. Maria Benavidez to examine hm.

Minx is to be taken on a cruise by her mother Lena, on a ship there are no electrical lines for Drill to travel over. The plan impresses Wes and both parents believe that Minx will be safe. Frommer explains to the president about Lawrence’s plan and he approves it.

They begin their plan and start shutting down power grid sectors in order to force Drill into their trap. As the agents, the president and Frommer wait anxiously, without any sign of the entity showing up, Claire gets off a brilliant zinger against the douche that has the commander-in-chief’s ear. After complaining about crime reports coming in from the first blacked out areas, Frommer says, “Question is, how long do you stand around at the dance till you realize that you’ve been stood up?”

Claire responds, “Maybe you should tell me sir…My dates always showed up.”

Touché.

While this was very satisfactory (on a sidenote,David Andrews really has channelled his inner arsehole to play Frommer) this was a light moment before the storm. In short order Drill is trapped, as are Sean and Henry in their return trip from the hospital, as are Lena and Minx, who were meant to be on their way to the Caribbean cruise. Both pairs move to get back home.

Lena tries to call Wes but gets a constant busy signal, after a cab driver refuses to take them into the city, explaining that it is in a gridlock, a kindly older gentleman offers to take them back. Sean works his way out of the blackout induced traffic jam and just as he and Henry share a Peter Pan quote, “Second star to the right and straight on till morning,” a car comes speeding out of nowhere and hits their vehicle.

The FBI and DoD joint plan to trap Drill works. As they verify that Drill is trapped in an old school, Wes and Claire realize that a child is in there with him. Meanwhile, Sean gets help from a fierce acting stranger who assists him in removing a trapped Henry from the wreckage of the car. Lena and Minx are dropped off home by the kind older man. After Lena tries to pay him (he refuses the offer) and then thanks him for not being a crazy, we learn he is something much worse. While it is not spelled out, this chap being there to assist the Lawrence’s was not a coincidence or serendipity. Before driving away, the man takes out a notebook and all the main players names are on it; Claire, Lena (misspelt as Lene), Minx, Sean, and so on.

At the school, Wes and Claire chase down Nicholas and confront Drill who is with the boy. With no source of power, the entity attempts to possess the boy and Wes jumps forward to save Nicholas only to be knocked off his feet. Once Drill appears to be in the child, Frommer demands that the president kill the boy and the alien. The president hesitates as Wes tells him that they should find another way and put the power back on, allowing Drill to escape.

Lawrence appeals to the father side of the president who decides that they will not kill Drill by killing Nicholas. Later the man asks his Secretary of Defense if Frommer thinks he did the wrong thing. Frommer answers categorically that he knows the president made the wrong choice. As predicted before, the leader of the DoD would have no problem slaying a child for the “greater good.”

Wes promises Drill that he will hunt him down and not stop until he has killed him. After his emotional rant, the electricity crackles and fluctuates. Back at the Lawrence home, Lena calls out to Minx that chocolate sundaes are coming up. Minx is in bed already and as Lena goes to check on her, water is shown flowing steadily from the refrigerator’s ice maker.

The floor is covered with water and a barefoot Lena goes to the fridge and, with one foot in the fluid, she touches the door and is electrocuted. Drill has responded to Wes and his threat by punishing the man with his wife’s death. Unfortunately he has also punished Minx who stands outside the house crying and glaring up at the sky later while inside the Lawrence home, Wes cradles his dead wife and screams.

The Whispers has made another turn into a deeper darker area. Last week and the week before were both deadly in nature, a backstory of child murder and the follow up being another child murdering the now grown Thomas Harcourt. In terms of violence and “self defense” Drill has (pardon the pun) taken off the kid gloves.

The episode title of Darkest Fears is very appropriate. Two darkest fears, if not more, are broached. The, almost, murder of a child being possessed by Drill, their inability to kill the entity, Henry almost dying (on top of his health scare), and Wes losing his wife to an extremely vengeful Drill. On top of these issues is another, newer one. Who is the “kindly” gentleman with the list?

Perhaps the darkest fear of all is the one where the adults, Claire in particular, feel they cannot talk to the children as well as Drill can. The entity accuses Bennigan of lying to the children and not telling them the truth. Drill actually does this by telling the kids what they want and need to hear. Certainly he rewards them if they perform as asked but he just a quickly becomes deadly when things do not go his way.

Kudos to Barry Sloane as Wes Lawrence this week. This episode was his showcase full stop. Can there be anyone who did not get emotional when Wes desperately cradled Lena’s unresponsive body saying “it’s alright, it’ll be alright” and then screaming? Powerful stuff this and worthy of an Emmy nod surely.

The death of Kristen Connolly’s character is a blow and now it seems there will be a race to see who can be the biggest monster, Secretary of Defense Frommer or Drill. It feels like the alien has made a huge miscalculation in killing Minx’s mother, this young lady was eerily adult-like in her thought process already, it is not too unbelievable to think that young Ms. Lawrence may be instrumental in Drill’s death.

The Whispers airs Mondays on ABC and this compelling science fiction thriller continues to draw the viewer into a fascinating and frightening world.

The Whispers: A Hollow Man (recap and review)

Sean, Claire and Thomas in The Whispers
Last week in The Whispers Sean and Claire went on the run after apparently “killing” Drill and Frommer ordered Jessup to kidnap their son. In A Hollow Man, things heat up as all roads lead to a man named Thomas. Secretary Frommer proves yet again that he is a man drunk with power. The rock being destroyed almost sends him over the edge and he initially threatens Wes Lawrence with charges of treason.

Jessup ignores his orders and takes Henry to Claire and Sean, although Bennigan punches his wife’s former partner at first. After their son is returned, Claire starts to tells Henry that Drill is dead. To their shock and dismay, the boy tells them that the alien entity is not dead, he just spoke with him. Sean tells his wife that regardless of whether Drill is dead or not, they all need to stick together.

Wes tells Lena that Drill is dead and once he explains the time frame, his wife responds that she spoke to Drill around an hour before he came home. Lena then confesses that she had been playing with Drill via Minx. They go into their daughter’s room and Wes asks Minx about Drill. She tells her father that she was pretending all along, that she was not playing with Drill. “I was just trying to make you feel better mommy,” she says. Lena is upset that her daughter is lying to them.

Wes prefers to believe Minx, as this backs up what they did at the black facility. He recommends they all get some rest and talk about it later, Lena looks shocked and is visibly disturbed.

Claire and Sean are in a motel room. They put Henry to bed and Claire plugs in the untraceable phone that Jessup can reach them by. As she goes into the bathroom to clean up, Sean and Claire talk about the last time they shared a hotel room together. The memory consists of food poisoning, laying on the bathroom floor of the other hotel room, and talking. Claire asks what Sean wants and he reveals that he wants them to be a family again.

Jessup calls his former partner. He has been going through the case studies from outside the FBI database that Claire ordered about kids with invisible friends. One child, in the files, reportedly had a friend named Drill who spoke to him as well. The kicker is that this took place in 1982 and the entity is referred to as a “malevolent” presence.

Wes calls Claire to relay that he is working on Frommer. She tells Lawrence that the secretary is the least of their problems, “Drill,” she says, “survived.” Wes stammers back that Lena tried to tell him the same thing. Bennigan tells Wes about the address they have for the 1982 lad and Lawrence immediately calls Lena to relay what he’s learned.

Lena is huddled in a closet and Minx tells her mother that she is sorry she lied to “daddy” but Lena was not supposed to tell anyone about their games. Minx also points out that Drill is mad at Lena and her mother responds that they should not be friends with Drill any longer.

Minx tells her mother that Drill has an important message for her. Downstairs, the two sit either side of a coffee table and Lena has some letter squares in front of her. She asks why Drill cannot just tell her what he wants. “Drill says it is a secret message,” Minx replies, “just for you.”

Minx also says that if Lena does what the letters say, Drill will give her what she wants. Lena rearranges the letters and the first three are K-I-L. She grabs the tiles up and after Minx asks if it is fun, Lena says no and that she will not be playing…ever.

Claire, Sean and Henry reach the address for the boy from the case file. Mr. Harcourt, the boy’s father, answers the door. When he learns it is about his older son (Thomas), he asks the FBI agent to leave. The agent responds that she is there as a parent and Claire explains that their son Henry talks to Drill, Harcourt replies that his son’s imaginary friend was called that and she tells him that Drill is real.

Secretary Frommer is grilled about what happened at the nuclear plant by Capital Hour, a news based program, and the man says that he will not comment on rumors. Wes comes in to tell him that Drill is not dead s they thought. Frommer is not pleased and fires Wes, he takes away Lawrence’s clearance and takes him off the case. “Go home,” Frommer says, “and look after that family of yours.” A not so thinly veiled threat from the king of douchebags.

At the Lawrence home, Minx has been sent to the roof by Drill, the entity has told the girl that there is a kitten there. Lena sees her daughter on the top of the building and a sparking electric wire is just over her head. Asking if Drill will leave them alone if she does what the tiles requested, the sparks stop and Lena agrees to his task.

Harcourt explains about his two older sons and that he worked as an astronomer at NASA in 1982. His sons were fascinated about a narrow band radio signal received from the Chi Sagitarii star group that he told them about. He tells the Bennigan’s that his son Thomas came in two weeks later and said that the alien who sent the signal was here, in his head.

Claire asks what Thomas did next and Harcourt reveals that he killed his brother Eliot and that Drill told him to do it. Wes arrives home to find Lena gone and he goes upstair to speak with Minx. He puts cameras and other equipment on his daughter’s bedroom floor and tells her that he knows Minx lied about Drill.

After Wes tells Minx that there are to be no more secrets in “this family.” She tells Wes that he needs to know what Lena is doing. “I think she’s gonna do something bad,” Minx says. Meanwhile Harcourt tells Sean and Claire about Eliot’s death and Wes discovers that Lena has taken a gun.

Harcourt brings out some home movies of the two boys and the bit that Sean and Claire watch contains footage from the day of Eliot’s death. In the movie the two boys head to the pond, Eliot goes first and just before Thomas starts through the fence to Hanger’s Pond, he faces the camera and mouths “I’m sorry.” Claire spots it and shows Sean.

Claire calls Jessup and asks if there are any other addresses for Eliot or Thomas. He finds one for Eliot and Bennigan explains that Thomas has taken on his brother’s identity, it is a coping mechanism and that they will find him there. Sean and Claire go to get Henry and drive to the address. The projector showing the home movie flickers, Drill is there and he burns the film with Thomas on it.

Wes comes in to see Jessup and after telling the FBI agent that Frommer is not pleased with him, he asks Jessup to help him find Lena. He realizes that his wife is going after Claire and Sean because “that’s what Drill wants her to do.” The Bennigan’s reach the address and ask Henry to stay in the car and lock all the doors.

Sean and Claire go into the house and find that there is no electricity in the house or electric appliances. They find a door with a symbol that Sean recognizes. Claire does also as she saw the same thing on the tree house where Harper’s mother fell. The door leads to a basement and the two find a replica of the pond with two figures meant to be Thomas and Eliot.

Thomas sees the Bennigan’s in his basement and Claire says they just want to talk. Lena is still heading to the address and she stops at a gas station. Wes leaves a message on her cell phone telling her not to do what Drill wants. A small girl knocks on Lena’s window and asks if she is okay, Lena says yes. The small child’s voice changes, “Then why aren’t you doing it?” she asks. Lena is confused and asks “What?” “My friend says you need to hurry. You’re running out of time,” the child replies.

Wes and Jessup are rushing to intercept Lena who is heading toward Sean and Claire. Thomas thinks that the Bennigan’s are from the hospital and Sean explains that he is just like Thomas; they have Drill in common. This opens the man up and he asks how they found him.

Outside the house in the car, Henry watches nervously as the car door lock goes up and down and overhead electrical lines spark. Thomas explains that mankind called Drill. He tells them that the 1,703 nuclear tests done between 1945 and 1982 acted as a beacon to Drill’s planet. Thomas says that the message his father got at NASA was the reply to earth’s beacon.

Drill was sent out to interact with mankind and could only talk to children. Thomas tells them that he knew what would happen if the Drill succeeded. He asks Sean when Drill stopped talking to him. Claire explains that Drill is talking to their son and Thomas says that it is not possible. He realizes that Henry is talking to “Drill 2” another one sent after he killed the first one.

Just as Sean and Claire begin to question Thomas, Lena comes in (Wes and Jessup are seconds behind the woman) and takes a few steps down the basement stairs. Wes and Jessup rush in the house while Lena begins firing the pistol. Claire shouts, “No!”

Thomas is shot and apparently dying. Claire rushes to learn how Thomas killed Drill and Wes tries to help stem the blood flow. The person that Lena was meant to kill all along was Thomas. It looks as though she has succeeded and now the secret of how he killed Drill number one is lost.

In this week’s episode, the writers have neatly and cleanly wrapped up Drill in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial cling film. The year 1982, the death of Thomas’s brother Eliot (Elliot), which is also the name that Thomas assumed when he left the asylum, and the whole “phone home” theme that has been an underlying theme with the children from almost the beginning of series come together beautifully.

This was edge of the seat viewing along with a nail biting finish. All the suspense and tension makes this the apex segment of the series thus far. Kudos to Lily Rabe and Kristen Connelly for their stand out performances in this episode. (Only Rabe can stand there and look so horrifically fascinated in front of the camera.) Jay Paulson as the grown up Thomas is riveting, full stop. It was also very nice to see John Billingsley from Star Trek: Enterprise as Thomas Harcourt’s tortured parent, another spotless portrayal.

Drill’s real face has been revealed at last. His coldblooded attempt to harm Minx proves that his intentions are deadly towards everyone, not just adults. Sean has always known this, as does (Did?) Thomas. Sidetone: The last part of The Whispers where Thomas is shot occurs during a rainstorm. Just like Drill’s death in another rainstorm took place years before. Is this karma, kismet or just the entity being ironic? The Whispers airs Mondays on ABC and continues to excel as top notch science fiction and drama.

The Whispers: Whatever It Takes (recap and review)

Wes Anderson with Minx in The Whispers
In the last episode of The Whispers; The Archer, Drill showed just how powerful he could be, Sean touched the boulder and remembered everything, Frommer proved that he may be just as big a threat as Drill and Lena learned that she too could “play” with the entity through her daughter. In Whatever It Takes, this week’s episode of The Whispers, everything has been cranked up in terms of suspense and the entire episode is “edge of the seat” viewing.

Sean does remember everything and relates it to a presidential board of inquiry. Wes Anderson tell the president that the entity has to be classified as alien and Bennigan tells the assembled group that it will do “whatever it takes” to destroy mankind. Anderson explains to the president what they have learned about the the entity called Drill: It talks to children, travels through electricity and can be seen through heat imagery and that it is trying to get to the rock. Wes also tells the group that they will contain the object with a magnetic field.

The president decides he needs to see the rock.

Bennigan warns that the DoD have no idea what they are dealing with. The president’s daughter Cassandra has been contacted by Drill and she asks to play a game on her mother’s phone while they are returning home. When the first lady and Cassandra reach the end of their journey, the girl leaves her “doll” in the presidential vehicle.

Frommer threatens Captain Bennigan again, this time spelling out that if he does not cooperate in tests that he will be put in prison for the rest of his life for treason. The president and Anderson go the the facility storing the rock and he decides that the thing should be protected. Wes and the president share a patriotic moment.

Sean comes home and Henry is overjoyed. They have a touching moment where the boy tries to tell and show his dad everything. The president and Wes talk a bit more as Cassandra’s father finds the doll in the official car. Lena and Minx are playing with Drill and when Anderson comes home the game stops. Claire and her husband share an awkward moment and Sean ends up sleeping on the couch. Later, Wes calls to see how his former lover and her husband are doing. He warns Claire to be careful and as Sean uses his wife’s tablet his ankle protrudes from under the covers and he is wearing a tracking device.

Cassandra gets her doll back and the first lady asks about her cell phone. When the grownups leave the bedroom, the girl goes into her closet with the doll as the lights flicker. The next morning an excited Henry runs downstairs looking for his father. Sean is making pancakes and their short encounter ends on a sour note when the boy asks Bennigan to promise he will “come back.” When the captain does, Henry replies, “I don’t believe you,” and leaves the room.

Sean has to tell Claire about Frommer’s “offer;” prison or guinea pig. Wes warns Lena to be careful of what she says around Minx in case Drill is still there. He tells his wife that he cannot tell her too much about the rock or what they are doing for the same reason.

Bennigan and Dr. Tully talk as she begins her study. He compares mankind to ants and explains that the entity will kill the earth’s denizens unless she helps. Claire goes to Wes’ house to say how unhappy she is with the choices given to Sean. She tells her former lover that the rock should be destroyed and Anderson questions her motives. He agrees to let her see Sean.

The scientist and Sean discuss the rock and he tells her what he has seen in the blue light. His revelations are disturbing and as he talks to the woman, Claire has her partner Jessup bring her a FBI flack jacket. She modifies the jacket to put several items in the lining. Wes stops by to see Minx on his way out of the house and she is watching the Justus doll on TV and Anderson recognizes it. As he talks to his daughter, she tells him she likes the television show because the presenter knows how to talk to kids…apparently like Drill.

Lena asks Minx if Drill is there as she wants to talk to him. Her daughter replies that he is not. He is, she says, with a new important friend. Lena asks why the friend is so important. She later rings Wes to tell him about this new development and Anderson suddenly understands the relevance of the doll being left in the presidential vehicle.

He searches Cassandra’s room and finds the first lady’s cell phone in the closet, the Blackberry had a tracking application downloaded onto it that showed Drill where the rock was. Sean gets the scientist to understand how dangerous the rock is just as Wes realizes that the thing is a type of cell phone for Drill. Claire is at the facility to see Sean and takes the items that she secreted in the vest, in for her husband.

Frommer learns from Jessup about the vest and he realizes where Claire is going. When she gets in, the doctor joins Sean and Claire to destroy the rock. Tully orders the soldiers out of the rock containment room and instructs the other two on how to set up the magnets. The trio begin to rapidly set things up as Drill travels closer to the building and the object via electrical lines.

The three rush to finish as Drill arrives at the facility. Frommer alerts the soldiers who come back in. Tully refuses to stop and is shot. Wes comes in just as the electricity shuts down and Drill has reached the rock. The object begins to glow and Anderson tells the soldiers to stand down. He also orders the area evacuated.

Sean tells the DoD agent that Drill is in the rock and that Claire needs to leave the area. He explains that he forgives her for the affair and that she needs to leave. A hysterical Claire is dragged out and Sean activates the magnets. The rock implodes and then explodes shattering the glass where Wes and Claire are.

The two rush down and find that Sean has survived the blast. Anderson gives the couple his car keys and tells them to run, he says he can fix things but it will take time. Meanwhile Jessup is outside the Bennigan residence and Frommer orders him to take Henry. Minx comes in and wakes her mother. The child tells Lena that Drill knows she wants something from him and that he wants something from her. Minx sighs and then says, somewhat disturbingly, “Maybe you can make a deal.”

This week’s episode of The Whispers has been the best yet. The suspense of the action and the plot line meant some pretty white knuckle moments were called for while waiting to see how things were going to turn out at that blue rock. There were a couple of “lump in the throat” bits; Henry welcoming his beloved father home and Sean “forgiving” Claire as he prepared to possibly die saving the world.

Of course Drill has survived and as Bennigan warned everyone, the thing is a lot more resilient than they know. Frommer has managed to plumb new depths as resident baddie, versus Drill who is the non-resident baddie, and Jessup is being forced into a very bad place.

Lily Rabe continues to impress as the torn and guilty FBI agent who now has her husband back. Milo Ventimiglia was brilliant in this episode as was Barry Sloane. Perhaps a moment of silence is in order for poor Gwynyth Walsh as Dr. Tully; shot for believing in Captain Bennigan’s visions.

The Whispers continues to not only be one of the best shows on television but is also proof that ABC may just nip the other networks at the post with a winning lineup of shows. The series is currently running neck and neck with at least one other winning program on offer. Miss this brilliant show and miss some very exciting television. The Whispers airs Mondays on ABC.

The Whispers: The Archer (recap and review)

Claire questioning Drill's kids...
By the end of last week’s episode of The Whispers: What Lies Beneath, the big blue rock has been dug up at Mali and Wes was taking it away, now in The Archer, Lawrence touches the blue glowing part of the huge object and it shocks him, knocking to the floor. when Wes stands back up, his eyes are full of excitement, something has changed in the DOD agent.

Later, he refuses to share information with Claire and she decides to get information about Drill from another avenue; the children. She does not share her idea with her former lover. Frommer proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is a petty and dangerous man. He learns of Claire’s plans and tells Wes, forcing him to interfere with her experiment. Frommer approaches Captain Bennigan and when he feels disrupted by the pilot warns him that the last person who showed him so “little respect” spent the rest of his days in “Gitmo.” The DOD head has slid into the lead as a character that viewers will love to hate with little effort.

Claire asks the parent of “Drill’s kids” to let them convene at the FBI building, where Agent Bennigan’s boss insisted the event take place, and all agree except for Wes’ wife Lena, who refuses to let Minx attend. Later in the show, Lena hears Minx talking to Drill and hears her daughter tell the entity that Claire does not like him so she does not like her. Lena is disturbed by this news.

As the kids turn up for their talk with Claire, she arrives to find that someone has put cameras, heat seeking equipment an recording devices in the room. Her boss asks who approved this and it is revealed to be Wes, who took action after Frommer’s talk. The children are uneasy, as are their parents and it takes all of Claire’s persuasive power to convince them to continue.

During their meeting, Wes, Claire and the other adults learn that Drill is not alone, that he misses his family and he is looking for food. When the alien entity learns what they are doing he visits the children and Bennigan, when he enters the room, via the electricity, his image is captured on the infrared displays.

The room where the kids and Claire encounter Drill, locks and is plunged into darkness. The image envelopes a little girl first and then Henry. Bennigan’s partner Jessup Rollins and some soldiers break into the room and after the lights come back on, the girl says to Claire that Drill has a message for her. “Drill says you will not win,” the child says in that eerily grown up and creepy delivery normally reserved for Lawrence’s daughter.

Lena ask Minx if Drill will play with her and after an experiment, Lena tells her daughter that she is a good sport even if she is an adult, and after a short guessing game, Drill says Mrs. Lawrence can play with him and Minx. The little girl is overjoyed and Lena is clearly terrified.

During tests on the blue boulder, where it is learned that the core consists of materials that cannot be identified, it begins to emit a frequency. At the exact same time, Sean Bennigan starts banging on the glass observation panel in his door. Wes goes to meet with Sean and brings Claire. The DOD agent takes the Bennigan’s to the rock.

On the way, Sean and Wes talk; discussing Minx and her connection with Drill which prompts the pilot to say that they share something. Once they reach the blue rock and Sean touches it, he falls to the floor after being enveloped with the blue glow from the object. He raises to his knees and reaching out to his wife says, “Claire.” He also looks at Wes and says he remembers…everything. Now the pilot knows just how much the two men have “shared.”

This episode of The Whispers has cranked the tension and the suspense up very well. The children, for the first time in the series, showed a collective, and individual, fear of their invisible friend. Drill become more threatening overall because of this. On the opposite side of this alien entity, it also gave Sean back his memory. It is obvious, however, that this was not done to help Bennigan, but to aid the rift between Wes and Sean. Something that will no doubt help Drill to divide and conquer in order to get back to his family.

The children in The Whispers are stepping up their game, as actors, and matching the adults in terms of performances. Lily Rabe, Derek Webster, Milo Ventimiglia, Barry Sloane, and Kristen Connelly are all convincing in their respective roles as are Kylie Rogers, Kyle Harrison Breitkopf and Abby Ryder Fortson. David Andrews as Frommer is still knocking it out of the park in terms of being the new “big bad” from within.

The Whispers is “must see” TV and airs Mondays on ABC. Don’t miss this science fiction and thriller masterpiece.
