Par Mulder, Hilton San Diego Bayfront, Indigo Ballroom, le 20.07.2019
Impulse is a story about a young woman grappling with trauma in a grounded genre world. In season one, our lead, Henrietta “Henry” Coles, gets in a truck with a boy she trusts. He sexually assaults her, and as she struggles to defend herself against him, she discovers she can teleport. From this point on, Henry’s sexual assault and the confusion and consequences surrounding her newfound powers are intrinsically linked. Season two picks up as Henry seeks to control her new powers by further confronting her trauma. With the help of friends, she struggles to become a more adept teleporter, but must keep her abilities a secret -- or risk endangering the people she loves.
After getting more than 31 million views on the pilot, the critically acclaimed YouTube Original series Impulse is back for a thrilling new season. Hear from stars Maddie Hanson, Daniel Maslany, Sarah Desjardins, and Enuka Okuma, alongside showrunner Lauren LeFranc (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) to go deep on the story thus far-and the drama to come.

Impulse follows "16-year-old Henrietta, AKA Henry, who discovers she has the ability to teleport. The first time she realizes this, she is in a truck with her high school's Golden Boy, who tries to rape her. She has a seizure and teleports, in the course of which she inadvertently crushes him, leaving him a paraplegic." The show goes on to "explore Henry's need to reconcile what her assaulter tried to do with the consequence, and her feelings about discovering she can teleport with her feelings about the assault."
