  • Quotes

    • Erica: Eli left me in charge of the Fifth Column he built... every cell, every soldier around the world. My first act as leader will be to declare that we go on the offensive. No more reacting to Anna. We strike first. We strike hard. Who's with me?
      Jack: I was a soldier once. I'll be a soldier again.
      Chad: I'm in... no matter the cost.

    • Erica: I should have listened to you about Ryan. Sorry.
      Kyle: Nah, it's on me. Should've taken the lizard out when I had the chance.
      Erica: I got you into this because I needed a warrior. But I've kept you caged. Not anymore.
      Kyle: You've got me, Erica... Come what bloody may.
      Erica: Good. We have an army now. And we are going to rain hell on the Visitors.

    • Tyler: You always blame the V's, but it was people, not the Visitors, that killed dad today.
      Erica: Tyler, you're wrong. You are wrong. I promise you. I did everything that I could to save him.
      Tyler: Well, you didn't do enough. If you would've done your job, if you would've protected him, if you would've stopped the Fifth Column like you were supposed to, then maybe dad would be alive!

    • Erica: I came to say goodbye.
      Ryan: Don't leave me here, Erica. I had no one to help me save my daughter, no one to turn to but Anna.
      Erica: No, you had me. You could've come to me. Why didn't you?
      Ryan: I never planned for you to be here.
      Erica: You betrayed us, not just the Fifth Column, but me. You betrayed me and Jack...your friends. We trusted you. We fought beside you. We defended you. I gave you my word, and I will do everything that I can to help your daughter, but I can never forgive you.
      Ryan: I'm sorry.
      Erica: It's too late.

    • Eli: I will die for this cause if I have to. I have no illusions I'm gonna walk out of here alive. But you and Joe must, and so must he. John Fierro, my most trusted colleague... He knows all my Fifth Column contacts all over the world, every plan, every detail. I've led my share of battles against the Visitors. Those battles are yours now.
      Erica: You want me to lead? Why me? We couldn't disagree more about how to fight this war.
      Eli: Maybe, but I've seen something in you, something that's far more important. See, you understand that this fight is for our future, for our families' futures, and at the end of the day, that's what this cause needs more than anything. Now take these people out to safety. Protect your cover, come out a hero. Live to fight Anna another day.
