Hal and Maggie have not seen each other since the Espheni broke the 2nd mass apart at the start of the season. The only sane person Maggie has had around her is Ben and right now, they are a lot closer than just ‘friends’. However, the cast has teased that the possible love triangle comes about in a natural way that isn’t as crazy as it sounds. So far all the flirting has been light and innocent. Ben defends Lexi as that is his sister and being half alien himself now, he has some understanding of what it is like.
This sunday Hal and the group are reunited and there will be a clash in Maggie’s morale compass as she decides which side she needs to be on when it comes to Lexi. Hal has grown a lot in this season to become a leader much like his father. Slowly the group is starting to trust him and that includes Pope. They still butt heads and dislike each other but there is an understanding of what needs to be done. Hal ends up standing against his father tonight as both sides try to figure out what to do with Lexi.
Falling Skies was just renewed for a 5th season and we know there is at least one major character death before season 4 is over. As the relationship between Ben and Maggie progresses, what will Hal think and what does that mean for his relationship with his brother.
We have a feeling this very important mission that Drew teases about is related to the Moon (which Hal makes reference to again in tonights episode) and to the episode titled Space Oddity, which comes up later this season.
