Warning: Spoiler Alert
Searching for eternal youth’s intrigued humanity since our species started to think; who among us wouldn’t want the energy, vitality, strength and speedy recovery time like when we were younger? To have the experiences of a person in their fifties, but the face and body of someone in their mid-twenties sounds like paradise, doesn’t it?
Henry Morgan, the protagonist of the new ABC series “Forever,” does realize the advantages and pitfalls of eternal youth, as he’s over 200-years-old, but looks like he’s in his mid-thirties. If you’ve followed the series so far, you’re aware that Morgan although killed numerous times over the years, always comes back to life, naked and in a body of water, like a lake, river or an ocean.
The plot of the third episode of the series revolves around a product called Aterna, that promises it reverses the aging process. Naturally older folks are scooping up the product, but the product may have led to a recent rash of deaths. Troubling on a personal note, Morgan’s companion Abe wants to try Aterna himself.
Join us after the episode for the recap, as we summarize the episode and find out the true story behind this so-called miracle elixir.
