  • Really good!

    I really liked this episode with things getting genuinely serious as Molly looks for her child. We got some interesting glimpsses into the past via flashbacks, and also interesting developments as the offspring 'feeds' off of people like the sheriff after he found that poor Esther woman.



    Meanwhile the Sparks family is reunited in some way and that has its own complications - looking forward very much to seeing where this all goes!



    Great episode - can't wait for next week!moreless

    I have not given up on hope for this show, but the absurdity knows no one bounds. This was not a sci-fi episode, it was just an outrageous episode.

    Okay, Essentially what we've learned is that anyone who comes in contact with Offspring is modified in some way, whether they know it or not, they aren't the same. Some, like Kryger, are able to escape its grasp, others, like Kern, don't even know they're touched. Molly at times seems cognizant of the dangers of her little bundle of joy and at others is concerned for its safety, maybe after being used so egregiously, she'll have less concern. Yasumoto connects with Molly and sends Dr Mason to help her find the Offspring. It's unclear exactly what Yasumoto knows about Offspring, but it doesn't seem like he has the full story. Sparks does anything he can to protect the Offspring, including allowing it to feed on innocent bystanders, but everything comes at a cost. Mason talked about the evolutionary leap after hearing how Offspring connects those he touches with those they lost. All the Offspring wanted from Molly was to totally frank with her mind so she would change the coordinates of the Seraphim to bring it closer to earth. I knew that astronaut wasn't a one and done actor, so maybe he's going to help save the world from what appears to be an alien invasion. While I was at first concerned about Odin getting close to Ethan, he had an opportunity to kill Ethan if he wanted to (or to at least do harm) and he chose not to (still dont trust him or Femi). l cant believe they killed off Harmon, but if Sparks is shooting people like he's at target practice and that doesn't count how many the Offspring eats. That hardly seems beneficial to mankind, although it would be good if the offspring turns on Sparks and eats him (l wish they would show us what he looks like). lt was a Good Episode, But Show Us What The Offspring Looks Likemoreless
