The show works so hard to build up credibility and come across as a serious take on the sci-fi genre. Then they go do ridiculous melodramatic tripe like this. The set up for the death of Ty's father could be seen from a mile away. Even in the last moments of this episode I thought there was no chance in hell that they would kill him with such a ludicrous scene. I mean, wow, the shooting in that section so preposterous I may actually stop watching the show. I really couldn't see how to get past the stupidity of this storyline. Add to that Ty's reaction to his mother, which was utterly unrealistic and you have a recipe for a total disaster of an episode. However, the last moments pulled it back by introducing the possibility of a militant resistance. The characters have lost everything and I am intrigued to see how their rage manifests itself in the war against Anna.
Finally, we all know RYAN IS ALIVE.
