“The White Room” is episode five of season one of Helix.
It had been discovered by Doreen in the previous episode, “Single Strand”, that a strand of the DNA in the virus was of a completely unknown origin and, as a result, Major Balleseros had killed her – even though he gave her the sample originally.
Dr. Julia Walker had also found some evidence that suggested that she had visited the facility before, but she is trapped with the possibly and definitely infected. Dr. Jordan has a tumour that may well be fatal.
One CDC doctor dead, one potentially terminally ill and one trapped downstairs. Things aren’t going too well. Looks like the dead monkeys weren’t exactly dead either.
