    In the comics the Pride were the focus point of that first volume. They were dead and thus somewhat less important by the 2nd volume and on.

It's definitely possible the TV show could follow the same route.

    The kids running away is important to the arc of the characters. But so are the parents. The parents IMO need to be gone (more or less) by the end of the next episode. That first season/volume should absolutely be about the parents...and then the kids run away and start evolving from there.

If the show follows the comic, I think it may be a television first. Think about it. Nine major characters dropped after the first season. Have you ever seen anything comparable in any show?

There's also this circumstantial evidence: Victor could simply have been allowed to die. Instead he's in stasis. I think, as a writer, if I was going to kill him any way, I would have killed him right there.

But of course I have no idea what will happen.

By the way - does anyone else think Alex might have a backup of the unencrypted files? Chase assumes he eliminated the danger to his parents by destroying the laptop. Might he be wrong?
