In the first season, the eight—Capheus, Sun, Nomi, Kala, Riley, Wolfgang, Lito and Will—are shown trying both to live their everyday lives and to figure how and why they are connected.
Meanwhile, a sensate named Jonas, who was involved with Angelica, comes to their aid, while the Biologic Preservation Organization (BPO) and Whispers, a high-ranking sensate inside BPO, attempt to hunt them down.
In the second season, the eight have grown accustomed to their connection and help each other on a daily basis.
They learn more about Homo sensorium (the scientific name of sensates), the history and goals of BPO, the role of Angelica in it, and their powers and how to temporarily suspend them.
