'Believe' episode 3 pics: 'Origin' reveals Bo's powers run in the family

ella-rae-peck-believe-origin-2.jpgThrough the first two episodes of "Believe," viewers have seen some of Bo's (Johnny Sequoyah) powers and been told that she may have even greater untapped abilities. What hasn't been explored, though, is the source of her abilities.

That will change with Sunday's (March 23) episode, "Origin." Flashbacks will feature Bo's mother, Nina (guest star Ella Rae Peck), and Zap2it has a few exclusive photos that help explain Bo's present-day story.

believe-episode-3-origin-1.jpgNina was an original recruit of the group known as Orchestra, and as you can see, she got to know both Winter (Delroy Lindo) and Skouras (Kyle MacLachlan) in her time there. She has some of the same gifts as Bo and becomes pregnant during her time with Orchestra, which helps explain how Bo is on Winter's and Skouras' radar in the present.

In the present day in "Origin," Bo and Tate (Jake McLauglin) are stuck in Manhattan and run across a woman (Shohreh Aghdashloo) still in mourning over the death of her son years ago. "Believe" airs at 9 p.m. ET/PT Sunday on NBC.
