TV show description:      
Bo (Johnny Sequoyah), a young girl, has had gifts she could neither fully understand nor control — like levitation, telekinesis, the ability to control nature, and to see the future. Now that she’s 10 years old, her powers have become stronger and the threat from malevolent forces — those that would use her abilities to control the world — has grown more dangerous.

With her life and future in jeopardy, Bo’s protector, Milton Winter (Delroy Lindo), turns to an unlikely source to keep her safe — Tate (Jake McLaughlin), a wrongfully imprisoned death row inmate who’s lost his will.

Tate and Bo begin an extraordinary journey, one in which trust must be earned. On the run and traveling from city to city, every place they stop and everyone they meet are changed forever. They have to keep going to stay one step ahead of the evil forces after Bo’s power.

Other characters include Channing (Jamie Chung), an associate of Winter’s; Skouras (Kyle MacLachlan), Winter’s former partner who’s after Bo for unknown reasons; and Corey (Arian Moayed).

Series Finale:     
Episode #12 — Second Chance
Dr. Skouras meets with Winter to warn him about Danni, his promising young rogue telepath who’s determined to destroy Bo. Danni has the power to kill Bo, but she’s a ticking time bomb. She will succumb to her illness before long, and she’ll be trying desperately to take down Bo on her way out. Winter reluctantly agrees to help Skouras, but there’s a problem: Winter has no idea where Bo and Tate are.

Meanwhile, Bo and Tate make their way across the country toward Mexico. Tate urges Bo to use her powers to procure a winning lottery ticket, ensuring a happy, comfortable future for years to come. Bo has a vision in which she sees her mother, Nina, who tells Bo to ask the convenience store cashier about her charm bracelet. Bo talks to the cashier, who turns out to be Danni’s former best friend. By touching the charm bracelet, Bo gains insight into Danni’s troubled past. She watches as Danni inadvertently kills her own brother after losing control of her powers.

Winter devises a plan to lure in Danni: he’ll to use Channing as live bait to draw Danni out. He hypnotizes Channing to implant a psychic signal that will attract Danni. The plan works perfectly. Danni arrives at the hideout and Skouras’ team fills the room with gas, but instead of succumbing to the chemicals, Danni charges out of the room in a rage and attacks Channing and Winter, torturing them to extract Bo’s location. Danni realizes that Winter has been monitoring Bo by tracking Tate’s cell phone. Now she can find and destroy Bo, thanks to Winter.

Bo and Tate visit Danni’s old home to learn more about their adversary. In Danni’s room, they discover evidence that Danni did, in fact, kill her brother. Bo feels that Danni deserves a second chance, but Tate doesn’t think she can be saved. Unfortunately, the conversation is cut short when Danni bursts into the room. Tate attempts to protect Bo, but Danni easily dispatches him by slamming him against a wall. Before Bo can react, Danni creates a havoc of wind and electrical energy, snatches Bo and locks Tate in the room.

Meanwhile, Skouras heads to the Orchestra facility to wipe the hard drives clean. If Danni’s actions cause the story to go public, the last thing he needs is a media storm around his top secret government project. Winter and Channing find Tate at Danni’s old home, and Winter has a good idea where Danni will be headed with Bo: Orchestra.

Just as Skouras finishes wiping the hard drives clean, Danni enters with Bo. Tate, Winter and Channing arrive at the facility moments later to find Bo and Skouras tied up, and Danni surprises them. Winter tries to talk Danni out of her plot, but she refuses to comply. Instead, she locks the doors, trapping them inside. After a failed attempt to break Danni’s psychic bond and force the doors open, Bo sees her mother, Nina, again. Nina tells Bo that she can save everyone, including Danni, with kindness. After the pep talk from Nina, Bo finds the strength to force the doors open.

Winter, Channing, Skouras, Tate and Bo charge into the courtyard to find Danni, more enraged than ever and surrounded by a tornado of fire. Just as she’s about to unleash her fury on the group, Bo walks through her fire tornado and tells Danni that her brother forgives her. It’s all Danni needed to hear. She extinguishes her flames and collapses to the ground, where she succumbs to her ailments and dies.

Bo has saved the day, but the celebration is short-lived. Winter tells Bo to leave with Tate immediately, before the police arrive. Sadly, this is the end of the line for Winter and Bo. If she’s to be safe, they can never see one another again. After Tate and Bo depart, Skouras tells Winter to flee as well. He’ll take the blame for this. Bo and Tate hit the road again en route to the quiet, peaceful life that Bo deserves. (courtesy NBC.)

    I thought it was an awesome TV show with superb writing and directing and awesome special effects. I enjoyed how the relationship developed between Bo and her father who were played by very talented actors. I also felt all the other characters were well acted. There were many positive messages that were given in every episode like forgiving others, getting a second chance, helping others in need and believing in yourself and others and the power of a close parent and child relationship. It always made me feel satisfied when Bo went out of her way to help someone with her special skills while at the same time running and hiding. In the final episode, she helped Dani who was going to kill her and did not fight her back. Instead she reached out to her with compassion to show she understood her pain and how to relieve it. She also cured her of her deadly disease. I really liked this show for all these reasons and wish for another season to see how things will develop. However, if it does not happen, I wish everyone well in their future acting endeavors.

    I cant believe you all have cancelled BELIEVE it was a remarkable show,
    there were other shows that was as good like Kyle XY, no ordinary family, they need to put it back or put it as a online tv series would be as good as well

    I am very upset they cancelled Believe. It really was one of the better shows on tv and believe me there aren’t many. I think there are about seven shows a week that I consider actually good and well written. This was one of them. I just don’t understand why they failed on this one. Like so many others I found it by accident. Either there was not enough advertising or it didn’t draw you in because I was so unaware if this show til I came across it by chance. Sunday is usually such a vast wasteland of shows I really don’t pay much attention any more to shows airing on that day. Imagine my upset when I found a good show and it was cancelled shortly after.

    I can’t believe that they would cancel an excellent show like Believe when they keep so much other crap for years. They keep so many so called reality show that are not only not real , they never never will be. And there are a lot of so called comedy shows that are not only not funny some of them will make you want to cry. Then, along comes a story that we know some writer has put a lot of work into it, It has real feelings, personal loving connections, inter-active dialog, and some scary moments,BUT nothing that BO cannot handle. It is truly a winning story and I do not understand the cancellation.

    I can not tell you how sad that a lot of people are that believe is no longer on. I have worked for a school for 24 yrs. with many children and I really think it helped Adults and children that felt different to understand that everyone maybe different some more then others and it’s okay. You could have made it that Bo was no longer on the run her Father was no longer in trouble but her and her dad traveled and helped all kinds of people that needed to know they mattered. There are so many that need to know there my be someone that could come along in there life and make it better or just make it OK PLEASE try to bring this back! You all did so much GOOD for HOPE and BELIVEING! Patty

    My husband & I check new shows each season for well-written dialog, a solid story-line, and a cohesive cast. Some don’t make it past the previews; others we drop after the 1st episode. Occasionally we see a cast that needs just a little time to mold into a solid on-screen team with believeable dialog. BELIEVE IS THE RARE SHOW THAT HAS IT ALL FROM THE START? KEEP IT !!!! We also loved “Firestarter” and it’s writing was no where near the quality of BELIEVE??

    Can’t believe that your canceling Believe ! ONLY show on TV that promoted GOOD AND made you feel GOOD ! Amazing that isn’t good TV ! Executives should look at reversing a very bad decision. Maybe FOX will pick it up -here’s hoping !

  9. Mary B "AND" Duane L says

    Can’t believe you canceling Believe ! Only show on TV that made you feel good and promoted the triumph of good versus evil ! All you see is Sex , Violence and Disfunction on TV , makes you sick ! NBC should loose ratings and viewers , We will find other channels to watch that are more in line with our cultural values ! Fire the Executives – Please !!!!

  10. Cindy says
