    I must confess I was kind of lost through most of this episode, like the other reviewers. But if you were a bit patient answers were forthcoming at the end of the episode. You just had to be a bit patient.

    It seems that the E came back at the beginning of this episode ( we find out at the end that the V had to go away to protect their women and children somewhere else in the universe, which means they are now loosing against the E and can't and won't protect the humans anymore) and rounded up all the humans. Their plans seem to have changed and they put the adults into ghettos and the children into re-eduction camps ( in contrast to killing the adults and putting the children into harnesses as before).

    Our protagonists are now split up. Little Mason is in an re-education camp. Anne is free and turned into a soldier and leader trying to find her daughter. Lexi is grown up, has weird powers( and turned into a blonde for some reason) and has build a peaceful protected community in the middle of a warlike city. Middle Mason just woke up there and is probably as confused as the viewer. Older Mason is in the ghetto trying to find a way out. And Papa Mason is in a prison in the ghetto, but seems to have been able to find a way out whenever he wants to play at being a vigilante on a motorcycle ( Little nitpick. How does he look so groomed. I don't think the has access to scissors or other sharp instruments, so do the E send a hairdresser in to him every few weeks?)

    I have the feeling that the writers wanted to reboot the whole series and wanted to start up with the war again, which almost seemed won by the V at the end of the last season. I don't think I would have gone that way, as I thought that there was still a lot of mileage in continuing the storyline from last season, but it seems the writers just wanted to start all over again with a gritty war and not continue with what happens with the V and the humans on earth after beating the E.moreless

    I've been waiting a year for new episodes, and this wasn't worth the wait. I thought I was watching a production written by grammar school students. If this is how the whole 4th season is going to be, there won't be a fifth.

    Horrendous. Cringes while watching it. Started second guessing whether it was the same show I thought I'd enjoyed so much in the past. Was the whole crew and writers sacked and replaced by a random story generator? I won't be watching this any more, too implausible to be redeemable. Shame, it was really good before!

    Awful. Continuity out the window. How did Tom become a champion motocross rider overnight? What's with the ridiculous nazi youth camp and the stupid drugged out hippy commune? Are they TRYING to make the show as bad as possible?
