FALLING SKIES always undergoes a transformation
season. At the end of the fourth season,
the Mason family and the remains of the 2nd Mass reject the offer
from the Volm to be safe in Brazil
and continue their fight against the Espheni.
At the start of the fourth season, they come under attack from the
Espheni and end up being divided. Dr.
Ann Glass (Moon Bloodgood), the mother of a daughter who isn’t entirely human,
fights a new guerilla war with some of the soldiers who weren’t captured.
Meanwhile, Tom Mason and some of the others find
themselves imprisoned within Charleston
by the Espheni. Tom and Ann’s rapidly
growing daughter exhibits new powers and her relationship in the fight against
the Espheni becomes murky while Tom’s youngest ends up in a training school of
kids as the Espheni try to brainwash them in believing in an alliance between
human and the Espheni (that reminds one of the Hitler youth/ the Soviet
Tom plans an escape beyond the energy field
that surrounds Charleston
as he also makes the Espheni believe he is in a cell while also being the
vigilante Ghost who fights against the aliens who prey on select human
prisoners. Meanwhile, John Pope (Colin
Cunningham) becomes all about himself again and people within the 2nd
Mass and the Mason family work to get him to work with them again. The first
two episodes are all about planning
an escape and finding out the new game plan that the Espheni has for the humans
and Earth while the Volm become less concerned about Earth where Cochise (Doug
Jones- the Volm ally- is aware of new plans by the Espheni to conquer Earth.
The fourth season brings new questions and
makes you wonder what thye have planned for the Mason family and the 2nd
Mass as they are alone except for a few Volm left behind that might them anew
in their struggle
against the enemy their share.
