Maybe without the harness on it makes the kids harder to manipulate. The overlord had to get in the same room with Ben to take control of him whereas if Ben still had the harness on maybe the OL could have made a connection from much farther away. And we've seen from season one that the harnessed kids don't really have a mind of their own, they walked around like zombies.
God Bless America
I'm glad Maggie finally got smart re: Hal. (Good speech, Hal.)
A stronger episode than the previous two. Okay, enough of delaying the finale... I'm going to watch 2x10 now!
This seasons been building up to a massive finale and this episode sure helped!
Really annoyed I cant see it till atleast next Saturday!
From previews of the last episode, its going to be awesome, and the last 5 minutes will bring something new...
This next season wait is going to be long!!!
1. We are now safe from the aliens...just have to deal with humanity now...
2. Can't say I'm fully comfortable with martial law or a prolonged internal conflict.
3. Having said that, Manchester is an idiot.
4. And I'm annoyed at the attitude of some of the Charlston peeps towards the 2nd Mass.
Very interesting mess we have.
I'm thinking some of that hate to the 2nd mass is cause of how well they have done out there on their own..
Underpinnings of jealousy.
Jealous of what? Jealous of them being attacked by aliens? Jealous of them having to move from place to place and look for food and shelter?
If anything, I believe they became concerned. The 2nd Mass was wary of handing over their weapons. They were more mouths to feed and more voices vying to be heard.
Get to a new place to find it is run by a smoke monster and max headroom.
Kind of interesting how the new guys are causing problems and not trying very hard to fit in.
