Limitless Finale Season 1

Limitless EP Previews Brian in NZT Withdrawal, a Big Piper Revelation — Plus: Watch a Finale Sneak Peek!

All season long, CBS’ Limitless has reveled in showing us the effect a miracle drug can have on one man’s abilities: This is Brian’s brain, this is Brian’s brain on NZT.

But when the highly controlled substance hits the street drug trade in tonight’s episode — the first half of the drama’s two-part season finale (10/9c) — we’ll see the chaos caused when absolutely anyone can tap into his or her hidden potential.

NZT’s effect on the populace “looks like the unimaginable made real all over the place,” executive producer Craig Sweeny tells TVLine. “A lot of crazy stuff is happening, as you can imagine, when the general public gets access to the drug.”

So what does this mean for Brian, who’s no longer working with the FBI and therefore doesn’t have access to the pill? Who made the drug available to the public? Will we ever find out what’s become of Piper? And is there a chance we’ll see Bradley Cooper’s Sen. Morra again before the season’s end? Read on for Sweeny’s teases of the final episodes, then make sure to scroll down for an exclusive sneak peek at tonight’s installment. 

NZT FOR ALL! | The drug’s new availability means “We’ll see parties where everybody’s on NZT. We’ll see street crimes on NZT” and much more, Sweeny previews.

Limitless Season 1 Finale SpoilersWHAT’S BRIAN UP TO? | “He’s trying to focus on maybe building a life of his own, but he can’t quite let go of where [Piper] might be and what might have happened to her.” Oh, and the first part of the finale begins a month after the events of the last episode, meaning “it’s been a while” that the assassin has been missing.

WILL WE GET AN ANSWER RE: PIPER? | “We will find out what happened to Piper” before the end of the two-part finale, the EP promises.

HOW ABOUT REBECCA? | “She’s also trying to figure out what’s going on with the so-called ‘Legion of Doom,'” Sweeny says. “She’s trying to finalize the connection. She’s trying to get Sands to talk.” However, Agent Harris and her team are “taken by surprise when, early on in the episode, NZT floods the streets… The ultimate question is: Who put it out there, and why? And is it part of a larger plan by Sands’ people?”

MORE MORRA? | “The last thing we saw Morra say, which was that this is no longer about the everyday perspective, that it’s not about who’s going to win control of this world, it’s about who’s going to build the next one? It’s actually the last thing we’re going to hear him say in the season,” Sweeny says. “He’s off doing something of great interest, but it doesn’t really have a lot to do with what’s going on with the between the FBI and Sands’ people.”

TELL US ABOUT PART 2! | Brian and the FBI are hit with what the official episode synopsis calls “a stunning betrayal to the team.” Also, Brian’s NZT immunity starts to wear off, causing a bunch more problems.

HOW DOES IT END? | The second part of the finale ends on a “very interesting reset, but it is not a cliffhanger,” Sweeny previews.

    Sounds interesting–can’t wait. So happy to see Jacob Pitts from Justified! So great in that series, yet consistently overlooked. Glad to see him working again.

    Thank you for having a real finale and not a cliffhanger. Every since who shot JR we’ve had far too many shows think they don’t have to do some real writing and bring the season to a close, or at least major plot aspects resolved. I can’t stand the finales that aren’t finales plus I don’t remember half of the plot by the time it comes back in a year.

    Should be interesting. Limitless has been one of the better new shows this TV season in my book, though it helps that besides continuing the film it offered that quirky protagonist scratch to feed my itch I’ve had since Psych and Chuck went away.

    • PoeticNobleLandMermaid says:

      That is exactly what I tell people when I’m trying to get them to check Limitless out: that the main character is like a perfect amalgamation of Chuck Bartowski and Shawn Spencer. I also tell them that it’s helping fill the hole the loss of Chuck left in my heart.

    Lets dump NZT in the water supply. Lol and either find true equality and advancement, or get swallowed by a black hole…

    Good preview about two part season finale, can’t wait to watch part 1 tonight! Love the show since it started last fall. Hope they’ll get renewed for season 2!

  6. Azerty says:

    It worked for me, this is my favorite new show this season. Come on renewal! And keep it like that, the guest appearances from Bradley Cooper are great, hope he will find time for a few scenes next year!

    • Couch Mom says:

      Mine too. Liked the movie and really enjoy the series. Having Morra appear from time-to-time is a nice tie-in with the movie. CBS, please renew this show.

    Damn you Spellman Boyle!

    I have never seen this show, but I will watch for Jacob Pitts. I hope it isn’t just a one off. I miss Justified, especially Tim Gutterson, his rifle, and his snark.

  9. Jacob Pitts. Jacob Pitts. My NZT is Jacob Pitts.

    I’ve been pushing Limitless while kvetching about it, too. Now Jacob Pitts? Ok, i miss my Tim Gutterson, the perfect fantasy man, but until his spinoff is ready, he can play the new Bad Guy and swarm it up on Limitless, which will be renewed, right? I wouldn’t miss an episode with JP.

    I like him with Rebecca too. Wait, that doesn’t make sense . I’m shipping already .

    I’ve loved this show and I’m hoping it gets a season 2. CBS is really pissing me off by keeping renewal/cancellation news to themselves.

  11. Val Souto says:

    Love the show, the actors are incredible and the story lines have been very very good. Don’t ever cancel it please!!!!
