3x01 - Kali (Part 3):
With Magnus recently deposed, Wexler has taken aggressive action against Big Bertha - who responds by sending a massive shockwave through the ocean, and a tidal wave is headed straight for the coasts of India and Pakistan. Magnus tries to get him to back down, and when he refuses, Magnus makes a calculated provocation, and Kali releases a wave of electromagnetic energy that knocks out Wexler's weapons and operating systems. Wexler orders Henry to repair them, which he does, but with a hidden  [...] (More)
3x02 - Firewall:
Big Bertha has been contained and mollified, making Magnus's return to her seat as the head of the Sanctuary network relatively smooth, but doubts still remain as to her fitness to govern. Magnus, however, can hardly be bothered to politick while Will, only recently back from the dead, is in such a precarious state. Weeks after his trip to the other side, his condition is worsening and he can't remember anything that happened on that journey. After a vote reinstating Magnus in her rightful  [...] (More)
3x03 - Bank Job:
Magnus and the crew have infiltrated a bank in order to secure a redlined abnormal - a ferropodus egg that was mistaken for a work of art and placed in a safe deposit box in a small town in Washington state. But when Magnus reaches the box, she discovers the egg has hatched, and a slimy trail tells her that the abnormal has certainly found a host by now. She calls Kate and Will, standing by in the lobby, to tell them to quarantine the bank. Will is flummoxed, but Kate wastes no time in feigning  [...] (More)
3x04 - Trail Of Blood:
Helen is delighted to learn that an old cryptography machine in her care has sprung to life, but when she deciphers the machine's message, the mood turns serious: Nicola Tesla is telling her he's in distress. Will warns Magnus that Tesla must have an ulterior motive, but she insists that they trace the signal of his call. They find him deep in an underground cave system in Colombia, wrapped in the webbing of a strange insect. When those creatures - giant millipedes - discover Helen and her team  [...] (More)
3x05 - Hero II: Broken Arrow:
An alarm in a sector of the Sanctuary has Magnus and her team scrambling to secure all of the abnormals - a toxin is somewhere in the air, and the crew needs to get all of their sensitive guests to safety. Will and Kate drive a van to a secure location, but before long, they're ambushed. It seems, however, that their attackers were only interested in one creature - the collective of microorganisms that formed a suit and turned a tubby nerd into a self-styled superhero named The Adjuster. Will is  [...] (More)
3x06 - Animus:
Henry reluctantly shares some news on recent werewolf sightings in Northern England with Will, who straightaway convinces the dubious Henry to investigate them. The boys decide to keep the venture hush-hush - no telling Magnus, which is just as well, since she and Tesla have been obsessively trying to crack the code for the holographic city presented by Magnus's father, Gregory. Will and Henry discover an institution that may be the epicenter of the sightings, and decide to "check" Henry in so  [...] (More)
3x07 - Breach:
Responding to an anonymous call from an abnormal, Magnus brings Kate and Will to an abandoned warehouse at the edge of the city. Finding it empty, and creepy to boot, they depart, but Magnus has a strange sensation and takes one last look at the place. Kate and Will, wrapped in a fog of banter, don't realize she's fallen behind. Magnus discovers the door suddenly locked, the glass unbreakable, and Will and Kate out of earshot. She begins looking for another exit, but every turn is the same, until  [...] (More)
3x08 - For King & Country:
Having traveled through interdimensional rifts in order to neutralize the threat of Adam Blank - the inspiration for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde - has given Helen a nasty case of radiation poisoning. Perched on the brink of death and knowing that Adam holds the key to his own salvation as well as hers, she has no choice but to share the dark secrets of the Sanctuary's origin with Will. She slowly unfolds their history: their studies at Oxford, Adam's wish to be a part of the experiment with the vampire  [...] (More)
3x09 - Vigilante:
With Magnus's health in the balance, Will, the temporary executive of the Sanctuary, decides that they must show Adam the map of Hollow Earth - the last hope for saving Magnus's life. With minimal fuss, Adam pinpoints a key sequence that reveals a diagram of the keystone - the artifact necessary to find the gateway to Hollow Earth. The diagram contains a number sequence, which Magnus deduces is a set of coordinates, and she and John teleport to that place while Tesla devises a shield needed to  [...] (More)
3x10 - Hollow Men:
Having attained the true keystone to Hollow Earth, Magnus prepares to find her father with the help of Kate, Henry and Will. Since only one vampire shield - designed by Tesla to keep the city from destroying those with Source blood on contact - is available, John and Tesla must stay behind with Adam, who warns them that Helen will never make it through without his help. Once Helen and her team are inside the main gate, the stone entrance shuts behind them. They discover a detector monitoring  [...] (More)
3x11 - Pax Romana:
In Praxis, the mysterious, underground counterpart to Earth, Helen has been revived from death by the stony leader, Ranna. With the bodies of Will, Henry and Kate hanging lifeless around her, Helen explains to Ranna that she's simply there looking for her father, and that Adam Worth, their mutual enemy, is held captive in the Sanctuary. Ranna backs down when she realizes that only Helen can save Praxis, which is being rattled again and again by earthquakes caused by an ailing superabnormal that  [...] (More)
3x12 - Hangover:
Magnus returns to the Sanctuary from a conference expecting to meet with Dr. Lily Lee, a member of the UN Security Council, but finds, instead, a facility that looks like it's been through a natural disaster. If that weren't unnerving enough, no one from her team is anywhere in sight. After carefully picking her way through the wreckage, she finally finds Henry, bloodied and bruised and with virtually no memory of how he got that way. The last thing he remembers is cataloguing the new intake, called  [...] (More)
3x13 - One Night:
Will is taking some much needed personal time with a fellow psychologist named Abby. He's bent the rules a little and used Helen's name to get a reservation at the city's most exclusive restaurant, Alfredo's. But on their way there, Will and Abby are kidnapped by gangsters, taken to a hideout, and told to save the life of their boss, Gibbs. Will insists that they take him back to the Sanctuary where he'll have the proper medical supplies, but the leader, a woman named Sioux, refuses. He'll save  [...] (More)
3x14 - Metamorphosis:
Will wakes in a powerful state of disorientation and rushes to the staff meeting, for which he's already late. But when he arrives, Henry notices something scaly growing on Will's face, and Magnus rushes Will to the lab to start testing and discovers that a spore is altering Will's DNA. After an exhaustive search in the Abnormal database yields no clues, Magnus realizes that the thing mutating Will must be from another world, the most likely world being Hollow Earth. Magnus instructs Henry to  [...] (More)

In order to make up for their botched first date, Will is taking Abby to the private dining room at Alfredo's. On their way out, they bump into Henry and his girlfriend, Erika, the HAP from the facility in England - also on their way to the one and only private dining room at Alfredo's. Will says Abby's near-death experience trumps Erika's last night in town, but Henry states that he should have the private room, since he's planning to propose to Erika. Magnus, however, may have the solution:  [...] (More)
3x16 - Awakening:
By way of mending fences, Helen takes Tesla to one of the last known strongholds of the Praxians, the race that founded Hollow Earth. But once inside, they discover that it's not a stronghold to keep Praxians safe, but to keep vampires safe from Praxians. In the last great war, before the Praxians retreated under the Earth's surface and built their empire, they had all but vanquished vampires. The vampire queen preserved herself and awaited revival by her court. Nicola and Helen have just stumbled  [...] (More)
3x17 - Normandy:
You don't live to be 160 years old without getting tangled up in a few historic events. In the 1940s, James Watson designed a device that could control weather.
