  • Another good episode

    The main point of this episode was the team gathering more resources for the 2nd Mass specifically motorcycles which have proven useful in avoiding those nasty alien bug things. This episode also saw a temporary reprieve from OPERATION: RESCUE BEN though not by choice I would imagine for Tom and Hal at least

    After being in lockup since his capture Pope was finally allowed out and led Tom and his team to an old garage where they found several motorcycles and also had to contend with Skitters and some harnessed teenagers which raised a big moral question - While as people the survivors of this invasion might have to kill but at what point do you draw the line, Tom drew that line by refusing to shoot the harnessed children despite the fact that their lives were in danger, It also showed us how truly evil the aliens are they must know that most people would have trouble shooting at or attacking kids even if those kids are shooting and attacking them.

    Not surprisingly Pope abused Tom's trust and whacked Dai over the head before doing a runner though he did manage to slaughter some Skitters on his way out even though that did lead to the above shotting kids thing. Given that Colin Cunningham is listed as a series regular it should be interesting to see what makes him come back and how the others respond to him when he does. How people cope with the invasion also was raised in this episode with people like Anne and Weaver choosing to focus on their jobs and Lourdes going with her religion which may benefit her but seemed to irk some of the other characters and some of the fans should be interesting to see if she gets more\less religious as the show goes on.

    Overall another good episode that blended SFX with real human emotion stories. This show just keeps getting better and better. Can't wait to see more.
