That is not the real POTNUS, it is the original President of the United States....

Like I said, it's all new now whether the show calls him that or not.

Whatever you say..... wink.gif

ex-POTUS now, of course.

So why did all the creepie-crawlies come out like that?
(Other than by the writers to show us who the real spy is.)
post #1835 of 2147
While I didn't guess who the spy was... I didn't have a clue... I knew I was right about who it wasn't... that being Ms Prez... so I was at least right about that!

And the western continues... We have an ambush on the trail. Some gun fights. Lourdes was the only character I still liked, now they do this to her? What a load of crap. the writers have reached the bottom of the barrel.

I believe they may have actually gone thru the barrel and into the ground. This show is progressively starting to turn on itself.

I'm still annoyed at the writers for doing it to Karen.

I also thought the entire "Farmer Brown" sequence was both hilarious and depressing, particularly the uncle's line of, "What did you do?" Uh... he shot you, because you were trying to slit his brother's throat. rolleyes.gif Not only does Tom then waste time trying to save the guy who nearly killed his son, but after being stupid enough to let the father go, we have multiple instances of both sides pointing guns at each other, and Tom decides to go back and warn them, thus getting himself captured... again. How did he survive all that time in combat situations? It would seem that Matt has become the most intelligent of the Mason clan this season. At least the writers have improved upon one character, I guess.

The moment the bandits showed up, I knew we were in for another filler episode to delay the rescue mission. After all, we can't have them simply reach their destination, since there are still three more episodes to fill in this season.

Also, maybe the camera spinning disoriented me, but after Pope and Maggie had their little confrontation, was it just me, or did Pope storm off in the same direction he came from, i.e. back towards the cells? Maybe they couldn't afford a bigger hallway set that extended in both directions. biggrin.gif

I knew it wasn't going to be Peralta. They were trying too hard to make it look like she was the mole.

I never expected it to be Lourdes. Was she even present during the meetings about the POTUS location? I was expecting it to be the colonel or captain, or whatever he's supposed to be, Mason's BFF.

I believe Lourdes was in the bus when Mason's eye bug got away. Time for another one of those giant volm suppositories and the ole eye bug excuse.

He was heading for the stairs to go outside. He went in the right direction.

I think I said the mole was Lourdes at one point. But I suspected a lot of people along the way! biggrin.gif
post #1842 of 2147
I get the feeling Pope wants Tom back in Charleston .. I guess the time they spent returning from the plane crash and the "snake fight" were bonding moments ..

Weaver certainly gets respect .. walks into a bar with a crowd of amped up / drinking folks, arrests Pope and walks out with him, no problem ..
post #1843 of 2147
Witch hunt is back on, time to falsely accuse some red shirt and give him the alien suppository and watch him die from it. Or it will turn him into a freak alien smoke monster and terrorize Charleston.

Except it was a rebel-skitter suppository... not Volm (or however that is spelled)...

Time for a commercial...

Has this ever happened to you?

Can you sometimes walk, other times have complete paralysis?
Do you have vivid dreams that seem so real that you think they might have happened?
Do you then find out those probably weren't dreams?
Have you ever killed someone you knew but didn't want to kill?
Feel like sharing secrets with the enemy sometimes?

Well... you might have an eye-bug... and that's why you need Skitter-Suppositories!

Consult your doctor to make sure S-S is right for you... but make sure your doctor doesn't also have an eye-bug.

Lourdes being the mole is about the stupidest thing I can think of. She has no access to any classified info and she spends most of her time in the infirmary. Now I could see her planting eye bugs in other people, but not killing the pres.

Question, are eye bugs in short supply? Would it not be more efficient to simply bug all the key people and get this whole mess over with? Sloppy writing.

I said it was Lourdes after the third episode of the season, just based on her character getting more screen time than she deserves! Nice to see the obvious giveaways are still rife amongst television writers. biggrin.gif

I was initially swayed by the departure of Moon that would have given the writers a reason to put Lourdes on screen more often than needed, but nope, they were just trying to justify the twist by forcing some rapid progression of a character that barely mattered.

I don't think that it makes any difference, though. It was still a stupid line. I guess he thought Matt should have just let him slit Hal's throat.

I want to know how she got the bug in the first place. When was the last time, if ever, that she got captured? That's how bugs have been implanted in the past. If it's so easy to plant them remotely now, then it would make more sense to just infect the entire city's population that way, rather than using harnesses on the children or spies.
post #1849 of 2147
O no, it's Lourdes! eek.gif

Just got around to watching the ep last night. The "family in the woods" didn't add much to the story rolleyes.gif but it's a reason to give another ex-Sanctuary actor a role, I guess wink.gif

Interesting that Weaver is coming over to the Pope-conspiracy theory side. Not sure I can buy that one, not the way his character's been all along, basically coming to accept anything Tom accepts & fight against the odds. Surely he's not letting the possibility of all life being snuffed out get to him when they've faced extinction all along rolleyes.gif plus, if Cochise is telling them this, it's not like they're hiding anything from earthlings. so Weaver getting sqeamish is not quite believable.

I wonder what other "shocking" surprises they have in store for the finale wink.gif

3 episodes left...

The only thing that I can think of was the scene on the bus (many episodes ago, on the way to Charleston), when they put that bug in the glass jar, and it showed the bug make a hole in the jar and escape. They didn't show where it went. Presumably into Lourdes?

I thought they showed that bug fly outside the window. I was thinking it was when they were all in the old hospital building, and she was down in the basement/utility tunnels with a few others (Matt?) when they got attacked by that swarm of bugs that ate her bf (that tech guy with the dreds) from inside out.

Why would Lourdes have to of been captured? The town has been attacked numerous times, the bugs can fly as we saw before. Why couldn't one of gotten into camp and picked Lourdes??
post #1853 of 2147

The ridiculous merry go round of who has the guns on the other guys was right out of The 3 Stooges.  Really, how many times can they miraculously get the drop on each other and continue to make the same dumb moves and choices?  I'm on the very edge of not being able to watch this anymore due to the incredible stupidity of the writing and plotting.  I used to think any sci-fi was better than none, but I'm starting to change my mind.

That's what I was thinking. What says that the bugs have to be implanted by someone. We've seen otherwise before.
post #1855 of 2147
We've never been given any indication that implanting bugs is so easy. If it is, why don't the aliens just mass produce them and send a swarm towards Charleston? Once every resident is infected, the war will be over.

I thought that bug was escaping to provide information to the Skitters. If she got infected that long ago, you'd think the spy problems would have popped up sooner.
post #1856 of 2147
And now the redneck version...

If you start telling secrets to the enemy... you might have an eye bug!
If you kill one of your leaders... you might have an eye bug!
If you can't walk, dream of meeting your ex-girlfriend in the woods at night, then wake up walking in another room... you just might have an eye bug!

Very valid point.

You are probably correct. That was the only event that I "vaguely" remembered for when she might have been infected.
