It is possible to simulate complex social relationships, subtle social attitudes and empathetic stances with affective agents without an explicit or implicit artificial intelligence model.

Yes: scenarios may define successive attitudes quite easily and be used without complex model

Social neurosciences: recognition of other's helping behavior is a neurocognitive component that participates to relational empathy during patient-clinician encounters.

Virtual psychiatrists will be designed to assess and educate chronic mental disordered patients. These virtual clinicians may be preferred by patients with complex social cognitive disorders.

Sometimes, social cognitive disorders makes it impossible to build a non persecutory relationships with others. Maybe virtual agents could make it more acceptable?

True

KIC 8462852 will provide the first evidence of an alien life

Unfortunately I don't believe it. There have been previous reports of weird signals that were artifacts...

Religions: religious beliefs are often associated with a high degree of anthropocentrism. Which discipline will provide the first proof against human-centered view of the world, and consequently religions?

The more likely advance, in the near future, is the development of highly realistic emotional AI (see the film HER).
