It’s sad. I use to really care what happened to Sydney now I was just sitting there thinking, "Just shut up have the damn kid already."
Her scenes in the first hour bored me. I will admit it was fun watching Marshall, Dixon, and Weiss in the field. Yes, GG was just the typical The Show Is Ending So Let’s Have Everyone Back appearance and I had trouble believing with so many resources they needed him to come in and flash his badge and save the day, but I loved seeing him.
Again, why did they bring Balthazar Getty and Rachel Fucking Nichols (TM danceswithwords) on this show? I did like Amy Acker though. Not a Fred mannerism in site! And her asking where Syd was registered amused me.
I was thrilled to see Irina return in the second hour. She adds so much to the show. And while I did find the scenes between her, Syd, and Jack entertaining, once again, I have to ask, how stupid is Sydney? Seriously, have you learned *nothing* over the past seven years? All the crap you just went through and you’re buying mom showed up just for the birth of her first grandchild? Not to mention, the family birth at the end was just too much.
OK, anyone think Vaughn was really dead? Anybody? I didn’t think so. However, what little I saw of the show after he was ‘dead’ does not seem to make sense with Syd knowing he’s been alive all this time. Yeah, I have to think the JJ wasn’t so positive they could get him back after firing him. Now, I just wish they had really waited until they had him back filming instead of using a stock footage shot.
They finally put the entire cast in the credits! How nice of them.
And best moment of the night and making it almost worth my time, Jack handing the gun to Syd and saying "Here, cover your mother." I think the neighbors heard me laughing.
The plot thickens! The government has been aware of the existence of the aliens for years. And they know Tom is one of them. Interesting that they’ve let him go about his business. Have aliens infiltrated the government? My ‘X-Files’ training tells me yes. Of course, they could also have been using him to lead them to others like himself in an effort to monitor their activities. Tom, who thinks he’s been the man in charge, has actually been a pawn this entire time.
And which world does Tom belong in? He seems very intent on protecting both sides in all this, yet it seems he’ll have to choose one at some point. I don’t see him backing Zura’s call to arms.
Interesting that ‘Invasion’ is treading similar ground to BSG – are we any better than them? After seeing the aliens being experimented on, I had to wonder. And can you blame them for wanting to go to war?
I understand Jessie being confused and angry, but carrying and shooting a gun? Implying that he’s gotten to the point he’d use it on another living being? It seemed awfully heavy-handed to me.
HE'S GONE! HE'S GONE! We got rid of pretty boy, now can we get rid of the Jessica Simpson wannabe?
