Mira im dealt a bad hand but im going the best i can.
Skye. Mom's dying so ill betray you all.
My take on this is that Mira is being set up by the writers to later become one of the good guys. She will either be betrayed by the evil corporate interests (i.e. her child gets harmed or killed) or she will be forced to commit an act that she cannot do, such as kill all the Terra Nova settlers. I noticed that the writers have witten the role for Mira to keep her from being irrevocably bad. She is fiercly loyal to her people (goes to great lengths to rescue any who are captured) and uses non-deadly force when she raids convoys for supplies. This last show just establishes that Taylor and Mira are more alike than not.
Same goes for Skye. She originally agreed to help the Sixers out of love for her mother. At first, she didn't realize or comprehend the extent of the harm that she was going to do to those she respects and admires. By the time she fully understands what she is doing, it is too late to back out. That is why she tried to keep Josh from making the same mistake she had made.
I also believe Taylor's son will have a story that takes him out of the black and white. It all fits with the over-all theme of the show: second chances to make it right. The real villains are the coporate powers who want to strip mine TN for their own greed. I believe we will see more of them later.
By the way, the reveal of the purpose of the Sixers answered a previous question: why would the Sixers need to control a mine if they have no infrastucture to use the ore?
Finally, to respond to a previous post about the size of the baby ankylosaurus. Is there any science at all about haw fast one of those critters grows that early in its life? It started out as an egg!!!!! Unless dino eggs are supposed to be the size of small cars, the ankylosaurus must grow from small enough to fit in the egg into the bahama mamma we saw as the full sized creature. How fast it gets there is anyone's guess.
