Even though season 2 of “Falling Skies” just ended on Sunday, the Steven Spielberg production is already starting to ramp things up in preparation of its third go-around — and with that, we have some news pertaining to the episode title for the premiere.
According to SpoilerTV, this installment will be entitled “On Thin Ice,” and is written by executive producer Remi Aubuchon — who, despite a sluggish start to the new season, managed to really get things going once the 2nd Mass. arrived in Charleston. Unfortunately, we’re going to have a hard time finding out many more details about this episode for some time, though we do expect this episode to touch on some of the themes that we saw in the finale. We now know that there is a new species of aliens out there joining the Skitters and the overlords, and these are some that seem to be rather docile and helpful on the surface. Of course, you have to remember that very little in the world of science fiction is at it seems — and with that in mind, there could be something rather terrible underneath the surface.
There are also some interesting stories that are going to play out now with the surviving humans. Tom and Anne are now expecting a child together, which is going to create some interesting conflict when it comes to how to raise a child in this new world — in addition to Tom thinking that he was past this stage of his life. Meanwhile, there is also a story courtesy of Hal and the parasite that may play out far differently than it did with Tom in season 2.
