Even though Chloe King has her own superpowers, she still needs a mentor. Benjamin Stone has filled in that role as he plays Alek, her protector and friend on The Nine Lives of Chloe King.
During a Q&A session with the actor, he revealed more aspects of his character and his relationship with Chloe. He also disclosed the upcoming dangers for this season, from family matters to romance.
On Alek's encounters with The Order:
"I can't say too much about what happened in terms of my background with the Order, but I can tell you in general about Mai. They are constantly sort of hunting us, but they've only really just come back into the scene because they weren't really worried until the Uniter kind of appeared and showed herself. Now that Chloe is out and about they've kind of really started stepping up their organization, and they now are only just now really trying to find Chloe and kill her and eliminate the rest of the Mai. But until now, they have been pretty dormant."
Whether or not his character has other powers:
"Not that I know of. Not so far. The powers that we have are kind of the powers amongst the Mai. Except for Chloe's nine lives and having an empath, but all of the other powers remain the same. At the moment we don't seem to have any extra abilities or gain anything else."
On Alek and Chloe's relationship:
"[H]e's slowly developing feelings for her and then exponentially developing feelings for her within every episode." [...] "I can say that it definitely gets more complicated for her and it's not quite as simple as "Oh, Brian's really sweet and Alek's a jerk." It definitely gets more complicated and she starts to see different sides of Alek. She also changes as a person because she is embracing being Mai and also growing up. She has never even really dealt with boys before, so she has a lot of decisions to make and they're not quite as easy as you think."
What to expect on The Nine Lives of Chloe King:
"[T]he danger level definitely steps up and Chloe does have to legitimately be worried about her family members and her best friend. It definitely steps up and we learn also that there is more than just the Order after Chloe."
