On last week’s episode of “Falling Skies,” we saw things start to become a little bit haywire for Ben and his harness, and this could take him into a rather dark place Sunday night.
The structure of this season so far has been an interesting one. Everyone in the 2nd Mass. is still slightly worried that Tom may have had something done to him by the aliens, but they are doing their best to continue taking him at his word regardless. Meanwhile, we have the closest thing we have seen on this show yet to a true villain in the Red-Eye Skitter, and this seems to be who has Ben in a particularly shaken mood (even though we still do not fully understand why he is choosing to keep this alien a secret from everyone else at camp).
Expect to learn quite a bit about what the Skitters are up to during this episode. Ben, regardless of his current state, and Hal are going to make a key discovery while searching for some missing bikes, it may not be the only shocker that the hour delivers. On a different note, Tom and Anne seem to be getting even more romantic after having their first major “moment” in the midst of the Jamie tragedy.. (Random TV question: Do you like this Tom and Anne more than Tom and Ann as a couple on “Parks and Recreation”?)
Check back after Sunday night’s new episode airs for a full review, as we hope that the show continues its string of high-quality episodes that it started with the premiere earlier this month. (If you did not catch our review of the last new installment, be sure to head on over to this link.)
