    this time christina holds mariel hostage. the writers did a good episode for christina, she's as crazy as ever, this episode really justifies her role. mariel is also seen here, she's also the center of this episode. mariel outsmarts christina, getting tom to come to her rescue. christina's reign of terror ends in this episode. she's one of the best characters in this show, but her part ends here. eli szura makes an appearance here, he was on the last episode, but he actually has a big part here. we get to see that his the worst of the hybrids. szura is like the hitler of the hybrids.moreless

    in this episode we come back to the begging were there directors and writes are slow in delivering some info for un to understand why the aliens are here in earth. The episodes almost are ending for the first season and we still do not have substantial info regarding the aliens. I also think that the wirters and directors need to bring some heavy weight actors as guest start to spice up the story line.moreless
  • Best cliffhanger I ever saw.

    The best bit about this episode has to be the ending, really dramatic and unexpected, Szura shoots Derek and Cristina, I really didn't expect that plus I was slightly disapointed as I really wanted to see what would happen if and when Cristina gave birth, but the final shot and cliffhanger showed that not even her death would stop it. Really looking forward to the next one...
  • William Fichtner is the reason I watch this show, as he\'s THE best actor I\'ve ever seen, bar none. All the actors are great, though Larkin isn\'t my favorite...she\'s becoming nicer to watch though, now that she\'s not acting like a spoiled, insecure kimoreless

    William Fichtner is without a doubt the best actor I\'ve ever seen, & he\'s under-rated. He is amazing in this role, & I\'m really glad that he is turning out to be the stablizing force in Homestead\'s situation. I don\'t like to think of him being the bad guy. All of these actors are great, but the sole reason that I watch the show faithfully, & tape it each week, is for Fichtner. That guy should be nominated for an Oscar, Emmy, whichever fits his latest projects!



    The show is very interesting. I like sci-fi, & this type of story line is good. I\'d like to see the hybrids turn out to be good people, but doesn\'t much look like this will happen, at least not 100%.moreless
  • Character development of offing 2 characters....

    9.2
    In my wildest imagination I can\\\'t fathom where all this is going. Well, I imagine that it\\\'s going to take over southern Florida, and then continue on up the country. Even the kids in school realize that something strange is going on. How long will it be until the city is completely divided, and one side tries to take over the other? We all know that humans have no tolerence of differences. These \\\"new hybrids\\\" are doomed from the start. Or whatever the women are growing. Next episode will be quite a mess with Christina\\\'s litter exploding through her stomach.



    Do you think the aliens will make it....or will we?moreless
