    Falling Skies Season 4 Finale Review: Strange New World

    Falling Skies' pairing of "Spade Oddity" and "Shoot the Moon" suffered from the fact that one episode was a lot better than the other. However, as a whole, the finale left us in a good position us for Season 5.

  • Episode Summary

    In the conclusion of the two-part Season 4 finale, Tom and Lexi must triumph over Tom's mortal enemy as they desperately try to destroy the all-powerful Espheni power core. Elsewhere, the 2nd Mass faces a terrifying new Espheni bomb.

      We have causins allies coming for us dude!
    • Cheesy, cheesy, cheesy!

      Overall, I can't say that this season was bad, compared to some of the previous ones. However, the amount of plot holes (and there's more of them than in a swiss cheese!) are becoming annoying. They said Pope had left, but then suddenly he's back, without any explaination whatsoever? And *spoilers* why couldn't the Volm use their giant mothership to shoot the core? Also, clearly they saw Tom's beamer and could contact him, surely they must have some sort of radar-like device to track him down after the explosion. How could they fly that beamer anyway, it was first shot down and then a bomb inside it exploded?

      On another note, whoever is writing the dialogues for the show needs to come up with something more original. Every dialogue with Lexi was painfully cheesy and clich. They try to make you feel sorry for her, but you just can't feel anything else than meh. Let's hope for a better season 5. I have to admit that the cliffhanger was rather intriguing though...moreless
    • if you dont like the show dont watch

      @Onderon, dude no one cares about what you think look at the chat community before you decide to make a fool of yourself everyone loves the show but you do you really think the show producers are going to take in any of that nonsense? your just the 1% from the 99% pal learn your place
    • Worst episode ever

      OMG this double season finale was unbelievably boring, predictible and lame!


      really? that stupid dream in that plastic crap? it was obvious from the first second Tom Mason had opened his eyes in that cocoon that its just a dream. and the way you try to play with ooh Lexi is gonna kill Tom or nooot, is she evil or noot, soo bad, anyone could see-through that of course she is not evil, she wont kill mason with the cocoon or turn him into anything. and a whole episode about that final episode with those snails and oooh, nooo Weaver is gonna die noo please noo! sure he wont, no one dies in this lame story, only extras. i dont get it, your finance was cut? they are jumping up and down on that poorly set decorated pile of ruble since ages! you spent all your money on chinatown or what? and steven spielberg again? yeah he was so professional with Terra Nova looks soo cheap. but i could be okay, if the story would be better. everyone knew they will blow up the power core everyone knew Lexi wont betray them, everyone knew no one will die, why dont you spend more energy on a bettery storyline than the lame drama?moreless
    • Great Season Finale!!!

      This season finale had everything I love about this show multiplied! It was action packed, scary at times, great special effects, moving family moments, twists and left me wanting more! Can't wait for the Fifth and Final Season!!!
