Twisted Episode 9 Watch Online HDHQ Normally, I like that idea, but not in this case. For me, it feels like a cop-out, as if the show is admitting that it costs too much to have the Volm and the Volm weapons around, so they have a great way to write them out of the show. I don't blame Remi Aubuchon, this week's writer, and they may well reintroduce the Volm at a point next season, but it leaves me with a bit of a sour taste in my mouth. It's not what I wanted; what I wanted was a full-fledged alien war. I wanted Tom to be right about the Volm intentions, and I guess that isn't the case.
Twisted Episode 9 Watch Online HDHQ For all my complaining, it was a very solid episode of Falling Skies. There was nothing great - the show has had bigger and better moments this season - but pretty solid nonetheless. Greg Beeman knows how to handle the camera, and I liked the ending camp pack-up scene where the camera essentially captured a panorama of characters dealing with the fall-out of their actions. I liked a lot of the special effects sequences, particularly the collapsing Espheni tower and the arriving Volm ship crushing the remains of Boston beneath its massiveness, but it felt like a mid-season episode of Falling Skies, not a season finale. Yes, they snipped off some stray story lines, and they reintroduced some missing elements, but there's not a sense of a true sea change, just a continuation of the first season's guerrilla resistance with a few more elements of the third season's technological arms race. The Volm have kicked the 2nd Mass out of Boston, and they talk about heading to Charleston and seeing what's left of the United States pre-invasion government, but none of that seems exciting.
Twisted Episode 9 Watch Online HDHQ I imagine it's going to be the stuff that's jumped over in the next seven months or whatever break the show takes this time around. That's still one of the braver elements, and I imagine that they'll have a brand new cast member next season as the grown-up (or at least teenage) Lexie Mason. Hopefully they can also find more recurring time for Dale Dye, Robert Sean Leonard, and Brad Kelly's Lyle, who has become one of the funnier members of Pope's Berzerkers when given a chance to play off against Colin Cunningham.
The show has a pretty sizeable cast of characters, and plenty of chances to explore with them, I just hope they don't fumble the opportunity. The third season had a lot of great chances to create interesting television, and it tended to be a little too safe. Here's hoping the uncharacteristic ending for this season portends a sci-fi version of Band of Brothers for next season.
