Teasers: “Extant” 1.03 “Wish You Were Here” (Sneak Peek #1)

Attention “Extant” fans! CBS has released its first sneak peek of “Extant” 1.03 – “Wish You Were Here.” In this clip, Molly returns home from jogging only to find ISEA Director Sparks waiting for her in her driveway. Sparks tells her that she was right about the ISEA. He says that a covert program in the ISEA‘s medical center has been secretly conducting experiments on astronauts for years; and that the medical center was responsible for secretly impregnating Molly using past samples for fertility testing belonging to her and John. Conception was done by timed-released, to occur when Molly was nearing the end of her mission. When she asks why she was never informed before, Sparks even offers to fall on his sword and clean house at ISEA to prevent a re-occurrence of this breach of trust.

Sparks tries to convince Molly to come in for further testing as allegedly she has the same brain abnormalities as Harmon Kryger had after he returned from space. Molly is not having it though. Of course, we know that Sparks is feeding Molly a whole bunch of lies to stop her from finding out that her child may have been fathered by an extraterrestrial.
