'The Resident Alien After Show' Pre-Show: SYFY's Season 1 recap & what to expect in Season 2

The Resident Alien Season 1 recap to end all Resident Alien Season 1 recaps.

By Caitlin Busch

Welcome to the first edition of The Resident Alien After Show, SYFY's official deep dive into the latest happenings in Patience, Colorado. In this Pre-Show to the After Show, our hosts Jackie Jennings and Juan Cadavid are giving us the recap to end all recaps.

How to Watch

Watch Resident Alien on SYFY and Peacock.

What were the most important parts of Season 1? Was it (SPOILER ALERT) that the real Harry Vanderspeigle (Alan Tudyk) killed Dr. Sam Hodges (Jan Bos)? Or was it D'Arcy Bloom (Alice Wetterlund) kissing Mayor Ben Hawthorne (Levi Fiehler) — because we all know there will be consequences there. And how about the government agents tracking alien Harry (also Alan Tudyk) but instead capturing Dr. Ethan Stone (Michael Cassidy) because they think he's the alien?

The questions are endless, so it helps that Jackie and Juan are joined by series creator and showrunner Chris Sheridan. He's got the lowdown on all the biggest beats of Season 1 and, more importantly, what fans can expect in Season 2. So check out our rundown with Sheridan ahead of the Season 2 premiere of Resident Alien on SYFY on Wed., Jan. 26 at 9/8c. And watch the first 5 minutes of Episode 1 below to find out what happened after Harry found Max (Judah Prehn) aboard his spaceship in the Season 1 finale.
