The Peripheral: Chloe Grace Moretz and Amazon team up for a jaw-dropping sci-fi tale – Rate the premiere!

The ringroad is about to take virtual reality to a whole new extreme.

On Prime Video’s latest sci-fi night (the first two episodes are available to stream now, with new episodes airing on Fridays), a small-town young woman named Flynne Fisher (Chloe Grace Moretz) puts the hand on a futuristic gaming headset that ultimately puts her and her family in danger. What she first assumes to be fictional realities begin to feel more real than ever, as she and her brother quickly learn that the system they’re beta testing isn’t just a game. is much more dangerous than that.

Read on for a recap of Episode 1 (and be sure to check out Dave Nemetz’s review here).

In London 2099, a guy named Wilf sits on a park bench looking at the city around him, while a young girl named Aelita (who looks like an avatar?) sits down. He says she saved his life; she says she’s gonna save the world (but not”our world”). It’s all very cryptic and on purpose.

Somewhere in the Blue Ridge Mountains in 2032, we meet Flynne, a young woman caring for her sick, bedridden mother. His brother Burton lives in a trailer outside and is strapped down to a diesel gaming chair, VR goggles and all. The duo test videos in order to afford life, which includes their mother’s very expensive medication. When Burton lets her sister take the hot seat, we see that Flynne is a gamer herself.

Flynn works at a 3D printing company, where his colleague says Burton received a “remote control gadget”. The package contains components that don’t even have patents yet, and since the customer requested a chain of custody, Flynne has to scan his eyeball to bring it home.

Burton is hired to beta test this cutting-edge VR concoction, and the longer they play, the more they’ll earn. We learn that Flynne’s playing skills actually surpass his brother’s, so he needs his help with testing. She reluctantly agrees and puts the plunger on her head. There’s no screen on the device, but when she counts down from 10, she’s speeding through London at night on a motorbike. A voice asks if it’s like the other sims she’s known, but it’s not; she can feel whatever happens to the avatar (which is currently its sibling in the simulation). The voice directs her to Buckingham Palace and tells her to enter.

A company party is held and he is told to approach a woman named Marielle and convince her to take her home. Flynne gets the job done quickly. She is then ordered to knock out the lady with a mysterious substance in a light bulb, but as soon as she does, she is attacked by the robotic driver. There is a violent fight, but Flynne is able to pull it off and jump into the driver’s seat. She arrives in a new place and meets the woman who is the voice in her head. After some cryptic guesswork, the woman says they’ll take over the mission tomorrow.

The Peripheral Amazon Chloe Grace MoretzFlynne comes out of the simulation and she’s on a high, that is, until she gets dizzy and has to sit down. When she recovers, she goes to a bar to buy pills for her mother, but she doesn’t have enough money. Conner, an amputee, comes to his defense, and in the way he speaks, he is not one to bother. The drug dealer and his buddies finally give her what she needs. Inside, the boss of the dealers is not happy to have been taken to task by a drunk and handicapped man. He crushes his employee’s face in a glass to make him look weak.

When she returns to see her brother, Flynne sees that he is paralyzed with pain; its back is adorned with luminous dots and throbbing veins. The next morning, her mother reveals that Burton gave her her extra pills. It seems like this family can never get a break.

Flynne enters the simulation again, and this time she wakes up (still as Burton) on an operating table. There is an eyeball in a jar, and the woman from the last time orders people to remove “Burton’s” eye and replace it with the jar eye. (Hope you’re not disgusted!) Flynne wakes up in a car. They arrive at a building and with the New Eye, Flynne gains access. They take an elevator and enter a long corridor. They are followed by a man who seeks to kill them. He calls the mysterious woman “Aelita” and shoots her down with a sonic boom device thing. “Burton” realizes that his hand looks like a robot, and while he’s dancing with the villain, Aelita escapes. “Burton” takes a sonic boom to the head, and when it happens, Flynne wakes up and vomits. “Never again!” She cries.

The next day, she tells her friend Billy about the new technology. “I can’t help thinking that I was actually there,” she said. “Not just in another simulation.” Well, that’s a bit annoying, isn’t it?

At work, Flynne receives a ping on her SmartWatch from Wilf, who tells her that she is in grave danger and needs to reconnect to the simulation. She tells him not to call her again. As work closes, Wilf contacts her again through the store’s technology. He says his family is the target of a contract murder and he can’t help her unless she reconnects. She grabs her things and runs away. When she tells her brother and friends what happened, they laugh. For haha ​​they fly a drone to see if there is anyone around and find a group of men hiding in the woods. And I don’t know exactly what these men are throwing at the Fishers’ house (some kind of explosive device?), but it can not be wise.
