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.)

    Why is it that stupid shows last years on TV, like friends and/ or any police show. I have noticed no sci fi with a good message stands a chance. I loved Touch and it cancelled. I loved Surface & it cancelled. Hope was also a good show. Why do people only like kilings, more killings and not a good sci fi. I think the networks VP’s are the ones that make these decidions. Too bad. What happened to the good all days when TV shows lated for years?
    I really loved the show. It would be more than a pitty if it doesnt come back. Oh well, I dont watch NBC anyway. Not worth my time. Poor choice of shows. Belive was a show I enjoyed. Recorded every show. Good bye NBC

    I can’t believe they are canceling Believe. There are so many other shows they could of canceled, like Resurrection, Hannibal & so on. Hopefully someone else will pick it up. It was really a good show. We thought the chemistry was really good between the father, daughter and the rest of the characters.

    • HANNIBAL says

      Hannibal???? have you ever watched it – it is not only a good show but a GREAT show!!, probably one of the best EVER, acting, directing, camera work, design, light work, etc,etc.

  3. Annelise says

    This show reminds me of Fox’s tv show ‘Touched’ that was cancelled after 2 seasons.
    It has the same old recycled story line – the kid has an ability and the US military wants to tap into that resource. And episode after episode the good guys are being pursued by the bad guys, blah blah blah.
    It gets as repetitious and as boring as ‘Once Upon A Time in Wonderland’, which was also cancelled.

  4. Betty Wise says

    I chose Believe over Resurrection even though I liked them both because they aired at the same time. Wouldn’t you know Believe cancelled and Resurrection renewed. This is why I hate getting involved in a new show on TV because they never last.

  5. Serenity says

    The series, “BELIEVE”, absolutely should be renewed. “BELIEVE” gives a lesson in moral values, in which, seems to be seriously lacking amongst so many on this planet EARTH. Do all is needed to resume this show, because I’ve been marketing this series since the beginning to friends, family, and strangers. Most has recently tuned in and starting watching with positive feedback, well enough to add this series to their recordings. Please renew this program, immediately.

  6. Barbara Cunningham says

    I find this show to be one of the best on TV. I cannot believe they would keep Hannibal over Believe. I love the chemistry between Bo and her father. HANNIBAL is boring!!

  7. Linda says

    I really liked this show. I agree with Claudia try putting it on another night and time. Give it a chance gesh!

  8. says

    Please people. This show is simply awful. First off the kid can’t act. Period. Same plot week after week. Bo ignores the fact the Skouros AND the FBI want to kill everyone around her so that she can go help someone else she does not know. My God, this week they had the FBI agents (I do love Trieste Kelly Dunn from Banshee) stood there and watched while Skouros had Ms. Channing tortured. This was just fine with them. Skouros apparently CONTROLS the FBI. They do whatever he says. Now, he has shot Channing. He should be in prison for 20 years but how much do you want to bet he never spends a day there. Absolutely pitiful writing. Stick to directing movie Alphonse.

  9. Claudia says

    I really liked this show…so much better than that stupid Hannibal show. I am afraid of what crap will take Believes’ place. Try it on a different night and or time!!

  10. Rich Wagner says

    Wow a show without a lot of violence and no sex doesn’t have a chance even if it’s well done like Believe.

  11. Susan mcivor says

    Can’t nbc leave shows on that people like obviously there are millions of people that loved this show I guess you don’t care you could have tried another night what is wrong with you people you don’t give a show a chance I will never watch your shows again .

  12. Jerry says

    I see Hannibal has been renewed, so I am guessing that Believe doesn’t have enough violence, or sexual innuendo, to warrant keeping this good family show. Here’s my vote to keep this show or, at least, bring it to some conclusion before it just disappears.
