    For me it was in the show where Helen starts loosing her mind (can't remember the name). We always see her as so confident, assertive, and knowing what to do. Because of the bug or drug or whatever changed her personality, we see that there is a scared, hesitant side to her personality that is buried or in hiding.

    I wonder if Helen goes through phases where she'll spend 20-30 years being more assertive, then spend 20-30 years being more retiring?

    Good point. She usually tries to be so in control.

    I think ordinarily you can tell when something is really wrong when she gets quieter than usual. Like when she gives Tesla Ashley's blood or when she comes back to the Sanctuary at the end of Pavor.

    I can see Helen doing that. She was probably so busy during the 30s and 40s with the Depression and World War II that she decided to take the 50s 'off' so to speak, still doing her work but not putting herself out there at the forefront of all the action. It'd probably also help keep people from asking too many questions about why she never gets older.

    You're right, she's also like that at the end of Sleepers when she talks about being the last of the Five.

    Though I would like to see Helen really cut loose without the influence of a bug or parasite ala Veritas or Requiem. We saw the depths of her fear and vulnerability in the wake of Ashley's death, but I'd love to see her pushed in the other direction and just lose control and unleash her anger over something.

    ^she teetering on the edge with Kate when she was trying to get info out of her about Ashley. "Get used to sitting more." Rather chilling.

    Hello there!

    I've seen most of you guys around other threads, but to anyone I haven't 'met' - *waves*.

    Hope you guys don't mind if I chip in my two-cents' worth.

    I agree. It was chilling but interesting to see Helen pushed closer to the edge that way. Her stone cold expression and indifference to her rash actions shows just how angry she was. Given episodes like "Pavor", it clear that TPTB are not afraid to take risks; I think it would be interesting to see what pushes Helen to such a point as well as how she deals with it. I think it would give Helen's character a great deal of depth and intrigue. Abnormal or not, she has very human emotions and from what we've seen she feels them very deeply; there's just no way anyone can maintain the facade that she does and keep all of those emotions in all of the time.

    I think that's perhaps the closest we've seen her to losing it, seeing Helen get so cold and hard and just barely reining in her anger. But I'd like to see her get pushed beyond that, in a way kinda paralleling what happened to Kali where she started out as calm, mysterious, and under control until provoked to the point she unleashed her fury on the world.

    Hey there! Chip away.

    I think that's exactly it. Helen's ultimately very human and the events of the past 2 seasons have probably pushed her emotionally farther than she's been in a long time, dealing with Druitt, losing her father again, losing Watson, Ashley, etc. If anything could break through her facade I think the cumulative effect of all of that could, and an out of control Helen would certainly be a fearsome thing to behold.

    And we just might get to see this;
    Kali
    Spoiler:
    Helen was more than a bit pissed off at Wexford at the end of Kali.




    I loved that scene with Kate and the following one with Will. "You know, you might want to spend a little less time with Jack the Ripper? It's affecting your manners somewhat."

    This thread is likely small because there is already an established AT picture thread.

    At the Syfy Channel Upfront in March, I chatted up Sanctuary star Amanda Tapping for a story about Season 3 that will appear on AOL’s TV Squad page in the near future. (FYI, Season 2 arrives on video on June 15, 2010.) I also managed to squeeze in a little bit about Stargate and her non-Sanctuary projects.

    When you spoke about Helen, if we prefer her in season 1 or 2, I love both, but I don´t like her peruke in the first episodes :-(

    I am totally in love with these pictures :


    Picture 1 - Sleepers
    Picture 2 - Sleepers

    Those eyes ? Awh ..
