Last week the Falling Skies Death March felt like it when the 2nd Mass hit Charleston, but then things started looking up. Now with The Price Of Greatness, Noah Wylie, Drew Roy and Will Patton go up with Terry O’Quinn. Plus some Unanswered clips too below.
There’s only two more episodes of Falling Skies this season and The Price Of Greatness builds into the season finale. This show has gone by way too fast, and True Blood could surely learn some lessons from it on keeping a tight storyline without going all over the place. Terry O’Quinn makes his appearance on the show in this episode and all we know is that he was Tom Mason’s mentor and professor, but from the preview trailer below, it doesn’t look like Charleston is going to be the heaven the 2nd Mass was hoping for. If it was then we’d all be bored, so more stress and strife for the gang.
The images above and below definitely tell a story too where there are a few smiles and looks of relief, but then Noah Wylie’s Tom Mason start to get that constipated look again and son played by Drew Roy has that earnest look. As expected, Pope will clash with this band of survivors; if you recall in last week’s Death March he told Maggie that Charleston wasn’t the place for people like them. When Maggie gave her big confession to young Mason, I expected him to be a little more relaxed. After everything they’d been through since the invasion, her past was small potatoes. But we need conflict in these relationships, so the show gave them some. Ever since she mentioned that she has a soft spot in her head, I get nervous when the two embrace and he’ll touch that spot and accidentally kill her.
Now the season finale synopsis for Episode 2.10 : A More Perfect Union When skitters approach the newly combined resistance force, the groups’ interaction surprises everyone. Meanwhile, Tom finds out life-changing news just as the 2nd Mass comes face-to-face with their most dangerous threat to date. And, of course, they’ll leave us hanging until next year, but this show has gotten better with each episode and it’s definitely worth the wait.
