  • Quotes

    • Marcus: They'll live... but they will be flawed.
      Anna: These soldiers, my children, caused my prior outburst of emotion... Never again.

    • Erica: Red sky is not Anna's latest gift. It is her latest weapon. And we do need you. We need your help to figure out the truth.
      Sidney: Look, I'm not a soldier.
      Erica: I know.
      Hobbes: We don't need your fists. We need your brain. And if you say no, we'll kill you. (smirks) Ah, relax. I'm kidding. Maybe.
      Ryan: Like it or not, you're one of us now.

    • Ryan: You've done nothing but run tests on me. Who knows what you're doing to her?
      Anna: I'm just trying to discover how your daughter... a miracle, the first hybrid baby between human and V... was born.
      Ryan: She was born out of something you will never understand... love.

    • Sidney: Anna's a lizard? That sucks. She's so hot.

  • Notes

    • Charles Mesure (Kyle Hobbes) becomes a series regular with this episode whereas Lourdes Benedicto (Valerie Stevens) is removed from the opening credits.

    • The message on Paul Kendrick's smartphone reads:

      Join the fight.
      Red sky was the beginning of the end

    • Jane Badler's Diana is not the same as the 1980's mini-series, the name is a mere homage to the original series. Badler had to audition to get the role, and was not given the role of Diana just due to her connection to the original series.
