‘Falling Skies’ Recap: Crazy Lee Dies, Anne Thinks Daughter Is An Alien
Falling Skies saw enemy – but not alien – attacks, a possible mole within the resistance and a new vice-president on Sunday night’s episode.
Last week’s episode found an external human force planning an attack on Charleston. In Sunday’s episode, the 2nd Massachusetts Militia Regiment prepared to defend the city.
Once an enemy sniper was taken down, President Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) found that the sniper was a human with no evidence of alien control. However, the enemy isn’t taken down before one of their own – Crazy Lee (Luciana Carro) – is shot. When the sniper’s bullet makes impact with her bulletproof vest, she’s forced backwards, head first onto a steel rod.
Tom and Dan Weaver (Will Patton) smoke out another sniper, but find her unconscious and unable to give them information.
Meanwhile, Maggie (Sarah Carter) comes upon Hal Mason (Drew Roy) packing up his things to leave, fearful that Karen Nadler (Jessy Schram) has him under her control as the mole gathering information about the resistance. However, Maggie insists she help Hal through his therapy and get past this notion.
Tom then checks on his wife, Anne (Moon Bloodgood), whom Lourdes (Seychelle Gabriel) believes is suffering from postpartum depression after finding all tests on their new baby normal. While talking with her, Anne reveals that she believes Alexis – their newborn daughter – is not human. Tom leaves Lourdes to keep an eye on Anne.
Tom appoints Marina Perlata (Gloria Reuben) to be his new vice-president following Arthur Manchester’s (Terry O’Quinn) death in last week’s episode.
No aliens appeared at any point during the episode – an unusual touch for the show – could they be waiting for their next opportunity?
