TV show description:
This coming-of-age fantasy drama highlights the supernatural skills of a reluctant teenager, Paul (Iain De Caestecker). His best friend, Mac (Daniel Kaluuya), and his therapist, are completely stunned by the apocalyptic dreams that he’s been having. Paul’s twin sister Anna (Lily Loveless) is unsympathetic of his socially awkward behavior.
As if things aren’t difficult enough, Paul is seeing the spirits of the dead (known as Fades) all around him. An embittered Fade finds a way to break the barrier between the dead and the living, aiming its vengeance at Paul, Mac, and their loved ones.
Soon, the fate of humanity rests in the hands of the two best friends — who already have enough trouble getting through the day in one piece, let alone saving the world.
The reborn Sarah tries to kill Mark. She later realises that she would like to be released so that she can pass over.
John and his evil Fades roam the deserted streets of the evacuated town as they look for flesh to revitalize themselves. Obsessive Neil, having already abducted Mac as a means to get Paul to help him, shoots Jay.
After John has let slip that the Ascension Point is in the shopping mall (and not in the woods as Paul had assumed), the two boys fight to save their worlds.
First aired: February 18, 2012.
