“Forever” Season 1 Episode 12 “The Wolves of Deep Brooklyn” will air on Jan. 6, 2015 at 10:00 p.m. on ABC. Spoiler TV posted a sneak peek into what will be happening next to the immortal Dr. Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd) thanks to a promotional clip, a press release and several photographs of the upcoming episode. WARNING: This article may contain spoilers about “Forever” Season 1 Episode 12 “The Wolves of Deep Brooklyn.” Read only if you want to learn more about this episode.
According to the promotional video and the press release on the episode’s synopsis on Spoiler TV, this case marks the immortal Dr. Henry Morgan’s (Ioan Gruffudd) first case after killing a man in his private laboratory, as he had thought that that man was his anonymous caller. This also marks the first case he will work on after learning the true identity of his anonymous caller, who calls himself “Adam” and who revealed that he had the same affliction as Henry. This causes both Detective Jo Martinez (Alana de la Garza) and Lieutenant Reece (Lorraine Toussaint) to closely watch over him.
This episode will bring both Henry and Jo into the wolf’s den, as they investigate the murder of a young financial investment phenomenon. They end up plunging into the ferocious world of high stress, big money and power. However, this becomes more personal for Abraham (Judd Hirsch) as the victim is the son of one of his military friends from his time in the army during the Vietnam War. The case also becomes deadly for Henry as the promotional clip shows Henry about to be run over by a car at a parking lot.
Meanwhile, flashbacks will show Henry and how he reacted to a teenaged Abraham’s departure for Vietnam after joining the army.
This episode will also guest star William Baldwin as Oliver Clarion, a high-powered financial boss.

Given that ABC’s freshman drama Forever features an immortal male medical examiner (Ioan Gruffudd) working alongside a female detective (Alana de la Garza), it seems fair to assume that the duo will, at some point, explore a romantic relationship. After all, the show is very similar to both Castle and Bones, which employ the same will-they-won’t-they dynamic, and both of those couples eventually ended up hitched. What are the chances Forever will go the same route?
“Yes, at some point [it will be explored],” executive producer Matt Miller tells EW, stressing that the show will take its time. “The idea of the show was always designed around the notion of three characters that were, on some level, dealing with mortality—Henry, because he can’t die, Jo because she lost her husband at a young age and forced to confront that, and Abe, who is gazing into the twilight of his years. In terms of Jo and Henry, they’re both lost emotionally because they’re in love with ghosts. For Henry, it’s Abigail, for Jo, it’s her deceased husband. In episode 113, we very specifically dive into Jo and her dead husband. It’s really about two characters that are there to emotionally allow the other to evolve and grow.”
With that being said, Miller recognizes there is chemistry between the Henry and Jo. “What we’ve been trying to do with this show—with the flashbacks and mythology—is really distinguish it from a lot of those procedurals where they solve a crime each week, and it’s, ‘Are they going to kiss or aren’t they going to kiss?’” Miller says. “Nothing against those shows; this is just built a little bit differently. Whether Henry and Jo get together, or whether it’s an emotional connection, obviously it’s something that’s out there and something we will explore. Once you see them lean in for a kiss, it’s hard to pull back from that again. We want to wait until it feels organic for us and it feels like the right timing in terms of the stories that we want to tell for these characters.”
Forever returns Tuesday Jan. 6 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
Forever ABC! Two hundred years ago, Dr. Henry Morgan was working as a doctor in the African slave trade. Then, he was killed trying to save a slave. But miraculously, he didn’t die, he only disappeared, and from then on, Dr. Henry Morgan returns to life naked in a nearby body of water.
Currently, he is a New York City medical examiner who studies the dead for criminal cases, and to solve the mystery of his own immortality.
Of course, his long life has given him extensive knowledge and observation skills. He impresses people he encounters, including NYPD Detective Jo Martinez (actress Alana de la Garza).
During ‘Forever’ first episodes, only antiquarian Abe (actor Judd Hirsch) knows that he is immortal. In fact, Abe is his adopted son found as a newborn in a German concentration camp during World War II. But… there is another person who knows about his immortality: an evil man who is also immoral: his alter ego.
Forever ABC episode 10, ‘The Man in the Killer Suit’ and episode 11 ‘Skinny Dipper’ are more exciting than ever, because Morgan’s alter ego is harassing him and even, in the last episode, he has been his psychiatrist.
Definitely, Forever ABC is about the deepest mysteries of life. Why do we live? What is the meaning of our existence? But it is also a series full of thrilling and humor, with various mythologies that intersect, and characters absolutely complicated and veracious.
In my opinion, ‘Forever’ ABC is great. Do not miss it, it’s worth!
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you. Christmas are coming!
