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).
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.)

What do you think? Do you like the Believe TV series? Do you think it should have been cancelled or renewed for a second season?
I like the show. The young actress playing Bo is superb. And I would watch Delroy Lindo do just about anything –amazing actor. I don’t think the show is boring, I think it needs a chance to find itself. It isn’t short of talent, that’s for sure. I think if NBC allows it to survive for a second season it will have a chance to shine. Whenever I see networks quick to cancel a show for not being thrilling in its first few episodes I always think of Firefly. The greatest cash cow slaughtered before he even had a chance… Read more »
The series is growing on me. Think it has much potential. Needs stronger writers and less jumbleness. But, I think it deserves a chance. Good luck Believe.
This show is pretty cool!!! Like it:) HOPE it stays for a long time….
Like this show !!!
This has to be renewed. I love the show and the premise. I haven’t been into a show this much since Missing (which by the way was cancelled after its first season.) Please don’t let this be the same senerio. I’m a bit upset with the networks. Just when i get into a show, they decide to cancel it. Same thing happened with Journey Man a few years back. Anyway enough venting. I’m 100 percent for NOT cancelling this incredible show.
I really like this show and hope it is given a 2nd season. It is original and intelligent.
Do not know what is planned for this series but do not cancel it we love it!!
I LOVE the show, I hope it stays on! It is up against Resurrection is why I say that. I’m more fascinated with the supernatural than death. Hopefully it will survive. And it’s not predictable either, lots of unanswered questions for sure. That little girl is one heck of an actress, OMG, awesome!!! So to me it is a keeper!!! Keeping fingers crossed!!!
I like the show. This is a keeper. Next to Resurrection
I BELIEVE this show will be cancelled. Terrible looking.
This show is AWESOME!!! It should stay on. We love it. Keep it one!!
Intriging and fairly remeniscent of Touch with Keifer Sutherland which I also enjoyed. I hope it unfolds a little faster with the backstory & mystery of her abilities, as I think this may have ultimately been the undoing of Touch. The most appealing part of Touch I think was the childs ability to help others along the way & reveal the interconnectedness of everyone they came across & I hope Believe does the same thing. Good cast.
Great and awsome show please keep it going
in one word……….boring. this show ain’t gonna make it.
This show looks interesting, it just aired tonight. It kinda reminded me of heroes a little. I hope they have a good story-line so they don’t get axed because I am curious to see where they plan on going with this show down the line.
