View Full Version : What was the light?

So everyone is alarmed by the light shooting out from the top of the obelisk, thinking their presence triggered it somehow and now the aliens are alerted to their presence. Apparently their return is imminent.

However, in "Visitation" we know that the aliens sure took their sweet time in returning. They didn't come back until the Winter, when everyone was dying or dead. Even then it seemed like they came back in response to a Kino, although that may have just been a coincidence.

Regardless, it doesn't seem very likely that the light was an alarm system, since it took so long to trigger and what exactly triggered it is so vague.

We know that it emitted some kind of "strange radiation" according to Voelker and that it seemed like the whole thing "suddenly came to life," according to Scott.

Young asks Rush, "why now? why not when they first got there?" and Rush responds, "perhaps their initial impact wasn't enough to trigger an alert, but now..."

The light turned on when Chloe was thinking and saying the words, "maybe there is some kind of higher power in the universe that knew we were in trouble, put this planet here for us to find." This was also after Chloe was abducted and altered by the blue aliens.
