Tom gains a powerful new weapon against the Espheni. Ben puts his life on the line to extract enemy plans. Pope discovers that Tom is alive, and launches a final attack. Meanwhile, the 2nd Mass must reassess their situation when an unexpected visitor appears.
There are still a lot of unanswered questions regarding the Espheni, The Volm and the Dornian and how they all fit together. Over the past 5 seasons we have seen them enslave human children, mutate them and create clones. What we don’t fully understand yet is why? The ramifications for de-harnessed kids has not been explored and based on our recent interviews, probably won’t be. The Volm are clearly hiding something from Tom and the others regarding the Espheni. It will be interesting to see next week just what that something is. Here is a photo of the Queen of the overlords.
As we lead into the final 2 episodes, we know that a main character is going to die. Admittedly I am upset we didn’t at least lose one tonight. Going into the final 2 episodes, it would be rather annoying to wait until the very final moment to lose one and not get to see how each of the surviving characters handle that loss. That means if its played out properly, next weeks episode may see that loss. Which leads us to the very final scene at the end with Pope’s Thunderdome. Two men enter, one man leaves according to Pope’s rules. When Pope does learn that Tom is alive, he makes ready to go after Tom.
