Let us get this rolling with the CEO of Cleartech is so consumed by his work that he neglects his daughter. She longs for his attention, often chasing him around the house. As she grows older, she is likely to develop daddy issues and a variety of other problems, including low self-esteem, difficulty forming relationships, and an addiction to approval.

In the “End of the World” episode of Impulse, Townes Linderman cautions Henry about Nikolai’s dark character, emphasizing that Nikolai has a history of taking lives. Despite Sam, the hacker, corroborating this unsettling truth about Nikolai, Henry appears indifferent to the warning.
In this particular episode, Henry starts to master her extraordinary abilities. For instance, she successfully accomplishes her inaugural teleportation to Romania, a feat made possible by her newfound emotional control.
Meanwhile, Anna has left her career in law enforcement behind, yet she persists in engaging in unlawful break-ins and surreptitious recordings of individuals. It’s worth noting that Anna should be aware that such recordings are inadmissible as evidence.
Additionally, in this broadcast, Clay faces the challenge of being a paraplegic, necessitating a specialized van for transportation and the presence of a caregiver to assist him with his daily needs.
For Clay, several significant changes have occurred. He’s come to the realization that his father is likely deceased. Furthermore, Clay is aware that the town tends to favor Henry’s word over his own. To add to the upheaval, the Boone house has been reduced to ashes, a fact that surprises Lucas upon his return. In a surprising twist, Clay openly acknowledges that Henry possesses extraordinary superpowers and can perform remarkable feats.

Following a meal of soup in Romania and a contemplative look at some old photographs of a young Nikolai, Henry swiftly teleports back to her bedroom. She then descends the stairs, ready to join Jenna and attend the high school prom together.
While in Romania, Henry had the opportunity to view a photograph of Nikolai and his family. Strangely, upon returning home, she takes a picture of Cleo, Jenna, and herself. This eerie coincidence made me ponder whether her own family might face a fate similar to Nikolai’s family in the photograph.
Jenna is feeling anxious at the prom with Henry. She whispers, “They’re definitely talking about me.” Henry responds with a grin, “Oh yeah! But you know what? Whatever. The world is ending!”
At the prom, Jenna’s friends struggle to connect with individuals who have different personalities, such as Townes Linderman, who is an introvert and not fond of crowds or loud music. Unfortunately, Jenna’s friends fail to appreciate Townes’ qualities in the same way that Jenna does.
At the conclusion of the episode, Lucas firmly believes that Henry is an angel, convinced that she is on a divine mission from God. Despite not having witnessed Henry’s extraordinary powers, he maintains unwavering faith in her.
