    I have to say, this show has gotten much better as it has gone on. The beginning of the season was a little silly at times. But now the show is really gaining focus. I like both storylines (Martinez vs. Thomas/Sophia and Walker/Mercenary vs. Demmpsey). Plus there is genuine excitement and tension.

    I was a little disappointed in this episode, I hoped it would've been more and the dialogue the was horrific at times but the ending was nonetheless pretty good.

    It was actually good! Lots of actions in the first half, explosions, story movements, etc. It felt like a season finale, but it wasn't. We'll see what's next week will be like.

    Yes, I like the reveals and events



    • James Dempsey is one of the aliens and has been around for a *long* time.

    • The president now knows Simon Lee is an alien.

    • Thomas and Angela are dead along with around 2/3 of the group from the church.

    • Vicky possibly has a crush on Sean.


    Now the following needs answers;



    • Just what is James up to? Is he doing those experiments on human children because he wants to include humans in the aliens final solution?

    • How long will the President be able to keep his knowledge of Simon's real identity secret? Sophie must know that the cell phone conversations were tapped.

    • Sophie and the rest now have time to load up the portal. What's their next move? Bring their compatriots on the doomed planet over? Stall for time? More shows of force?

    • Will Leila find out about Vicky and be jealous?


    One thing that annoys me is the typical Alien hubris. "Humans are devious, conniving, violent people while we're clean as the wind-driven snow. Thomas and Angela have proved otherwise. It's sort of odd for a species to have that high an opinion of themselves when they share 99.9% of our DNA. This seems to be a common trait of alien portrayal in these shows.

    Another very good episode, this season is great. Thanks heaven he is not our real President, firing on just one bus at a time, come on! At least when the thing appeared in horizon they should have fired into it.

    How old is that cave-guy? Is he the creator of those drawings?

    This episode was probably the BEST episode of the season so far. The end was so good.

    I don't think he was the creator of the drawings, I think he was the *Subject* of the drawings.


    From the clues we've seen so far, they age very slowly. I'm assuming the cave drawings was from pre-historic times. Perhaps at least 3000 years ago. This would sound about right.

    An attack chopper that can't get off three shots in three minutes....? This show has a lot to learn about pacing and realism. The realism is the show is on pace for cancellation if they can't work out the kinks.
