      I will admit, I did feel sorry for the Skitters in this episode.

      An I did find it shocking how the doc could so easily kill the skitter in captivity. She certainly has a very dark side to her. Her character has gone from ordinary to interesting.

      i am also puzzle by there behavior. Especially how the Skitter seemed to protect the kids. Even treat them as there own and yet use them as slaves and even weapons. The skitters even killed several of them without a second thought. Yet the Skitter with the kids look like he would kill anything which threaten those kids. May be there different groups with the Skitters culture or may be they are taking orders from someone else, and they will avoid those orders when and wherever they can.

      I do like the way the show is adding depth to the aliens, it would be easy to make them out right evil, but they seem to be avoiding that. It will be interesting to see where they are heading with this story line. I am glad they have finally finished off the let rescue ben story line. Which was dragging the show down. Hopefully we will see the story move a bit quicker next week, may be a bit more action and more direct resistance it be nice to see what the other teams have been up to,.
      I think it's likely that there could be disagreements in the Skitter ranks.

      Spoiler:

      Maybe the one who was seemingly caring for the children is female (or if that's politically incorrect, some kind of sensitive section of the species ) These may not have a say in what the other more agressive ones want...maybe.

      Same here...far too much blood on their hands. Although I think it's great if they make them so that we're tempted to feel for them. I can't see what they could come up with so I feel sorry for them.

      Good point. I'm now thinking more along the lines of them farming the children and some of them are not that bothered if they have to kill a few off now and again.

          Check out Greg Beeman's blog - it's a bit long of a read but it's got some nice info and background stories about 'Silent Kill'. Also hints at what some of us have been speculating about the harness, kids and possible connection to skitter reproduction.

          Also, Spielberg is still involved with some of the concepts with show!

            The show is OK so far. Can't say I'm blown away but will continue watching. I think the potential is there but I feel like its missing that extra level that distinguishes amazing shows from just plain good ones.

              I know what you mean. I do enjoy it, but I DVR it and watch it later because I have other things I like on Sunday nights. When I do watch the show, I find myself falling asleep. It usually takes me three attempts before I can actually make it through an episode. Its sortta like when I went to see Green Lantern...it was good...but I felt something was missing.

                        I think I would've freaked out if a skitter curled up with me to sleep...

                            Except I didn't see ET putting mind-controlling harnesses on people.

                              I'm not blown away or in love with it yet but I've got my fingers crossed.

                                Yeah, friendly until something goes wrong, and he/she orders a Mech to take you out as an example.
