Falling Skies: Creepy Red Eyed Skidder!

Falling Skies: Creepy Red Eyed Skidder!

Posted by Dustin on 06.25.2012 at 3:47 pm

So last night on “Falling Skies,” a woman in a plane landed in camp with a message. A new continental congress has been established in Charleston, and they have been in contact with survivor groups in Europe. She asks them to head to Charleston and join up. She then had to head out, leaving the choice to Weaver. After consulting with Tom, it seems they will be heading south.

Pope continued to become too big for his britches, and still didn’t trust Tom. Tom asked to be assigned to the Berserkers so he could watch Pope, and Pope could keep an eye on him. However Tom proved to be a great asset and leader, so when Pope threatened to ditch the 2nd Mass . . . well he expected his men to follow him and they didn’t! So he went off on his own, and another guy offered to go with him (but really just to look out after him).

Finally Ben and his friend Jeremy killed a bunch of skidders, but then Jeremy got himself killed. The skidder with the red eye then activated Ben’s spikes and made them glow. Later the skidder met up with Ben again in the woods and did the same thing, seemingly telling him something?

My thoughts . . .
I’m wondering if the red-eye is not bad, but is trying to warn Ben in some way? Or give him a message? Again it seems the skidders are enslaved, and I think this one may be trying to help Ben and the humans.

I can’t help but wonder if the woman in the plane is a trap. The aliens wanted Tom to take his group to a camp where they would be allowed to live in peace. The pilot could have been harnessed and simply directing them to the camp so that the aliens could trap them.




  1. I think the red eye skitter used to be a harnessed kid. It’s been my assumption since day one that harnessed kids turn into skitters!

    I would love for them to all get to Charleston and start a new society, but I agree that plane lady may just be a trap…possibly getting the humans to the “sanctuary” that Tall Alien mentioned to Tom on the ship.

    And killing Jimmy? Though I wasn’t all that attached to him, are they trying to be more like Game of Thrones? haha.

  2. I vote trap. The ex-girlfriend seemed ok too. I expected them to ask to see her back or check her eyes. Grouping all the humans together seems like an easy way to kill them all but if they can find them why wouldn’t they just attack the camp?
