I don't even know what the point of showing two episodes on the first night was, anyway. It wasn't a two-part episode; they just randomly burned two unrelated episodes in one night.
I was also
at the fact that there was apparently no way to save Lee, which should have been simple for a race that's built a de-harnessing device.
I'm still inclined to think that the baby is alien in origin, and it's only revealing its true nature to its mother, since she was the one the aliens probed to alter the baby. The shot with the baby looking up at the ships was probably supposed to make us think that it recognises them as its "family". Of course, the real
reason it only reveals its true nature to Anne is to create this stupid is-she-or-isn't-she crazy plotline to fill screen time. At least she finally told people what she was seeing, because these types of plotlines are even more infuriating when the person experiencing them refuses to tell anyone about what's happening so as to drag out the "suspense" even longer.
