Episode Summary

EDIT
The Meek Shall Inherit
AIRED:
"It's not the cold. It's something else." The aliens' next move is to disrupt communication by destroying global phone links. Meanwhile, Sylvia befriends a homeless woman who believes her talk of aliens because she herself witnessed one of her friends being attacked and absorbed. The two flee the Whitewood Sanitarium to roam the streets of Portland and eventually hiding out in a truck yard for shelter. Having assumed the bodies of three homeless people, the aliens also wait in the same truck yard to hijack a truck carrying an important power source, which will allow them to complete their plan to destroy communiqués and leave society helpless during an attack.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • This is one of 2 'goofs' that annoyed me in the whole first season. When Sgt. Coleman infiltrates the house and Ironhorse fights with her it is just so obvious that it isn't Richard Chaves. In one spot you even see the side of the stuntman's face.

    • After Harrison hands Norton back his brown cup, he's holding it in his left hand, but then when it cuts to another shot, he's holding it in his right hand (not to mention that he's not even holding it the same way).

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Harrison: We're looking for a woman.
      Hooker: Gonna cost you extra.
      Suzanne: I don't think you phrased that quite right.

    • Stavrakos: Don't you believe that life on other planets is possible, sir?
      Ironhorse: Don't you believe in the swamp-gas theory, corporal? Project Bluebook - it wasn't good enough for you? I suppose if aliens were to invade this planet you'd be the first one to pick up a weapon and start shooting.
      Stavrakos: Don't think I'd be the first, Colonel, but I'm sure I wouldn't be the last. Last time I checked, this planet was ours.

    • Ironhorse: Who did you model this profile on? Rambo?
      Suzanne: Why, no, Paul. I modeled it on you.
