WARNING! This article may contain spoilers on the upcoming episode, “Fountain of Youth.” Read on only if you want to learn what will be happening on “Forever.”
According to the press release that was posted on Spoiler TV, this episode will have the pair investigating a company who claims to be selling the fountain of youth in a bottle — a product called Aterna. As predicted, their target market are the elderly, who would give anything and everything to be young again.
However, the pair soon come to realize that instead of giving eternal youth, the company has only been giving out death.
Tthings become a little bit more closer to home, when Abe (Judd Hirsch), Henry’s best friend and adopted son, becomes tempted to try a little bit of the product.
In an exclusive sneak peek posted on Spoiler TV, Dr. Henry Morgan introduced his newest subject to Detective Jo Martinez. He just had the pleasure of examining the body of a dead man, who was perfectly healthy, and in shape, despite his advanced years. Then he showed the detective the man’s brain, at which the detective became squeamish about. What was so interesting to Henry was that the man’s brain was the “brain of a 100 year old,” and he seemed to be suffering from several diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s all at the same time. The doctor also discovered a white substance in his system, which was mostly made out of bile.
The clip then moved to one of Henry’s flashbacks. In his flashback, he remembered the time when tuberculosis was rampant, and peddlers were selling special medical drugs and medicines. At this, Henry was mad at, as he believed that those peddlers were only selling false hopes to their customers.
Another exclusive sneak peek shows the Detective and the doctor conversing with one of the scientists at the company that sold the product Aterna. According to him, Aterna was a supplement, and the products did not come cheap, as one would be paying for eternal youth. They were also told that Aterna held the key to revolutionize medicine, except for the small fact that their product had indeed killed a man.
