    I like Season Premieres that start off things with a "bang".

    Yup you did.
    Spoiler:

    Though it makes me irked that yet again they 'skip forward in time'. I would have loved to see the initial meeting with the Volms and the formation of the pack with them.
    in addition the whole "mole" thing has me on edge, as i love skullduggery.

    Though it also makes me wonder.. If the Volm has such good tech, how was it the "assini (i believe thats what the overlord race is called) enslaved them?

    It's Ashvini. And I think Weaver is right. The Volm are lying about who and what they are and have their own agenda.

    Great episode.

    Spoiler:
    I too was irked that they skipped forward. I would like to know more about what happened right after the Volm came to earth. I really hope Hal does not turn out to be the mole, because it is so obvious that it would be him. I love Karen as the new overlord. She does creepy and evil so well. What is up with super babies in sci-fi shows. First BSG, then Stargate Sg-1 and Atlantis. I do not get the fascination. I am wondering if this season will be like some big dream, based on the previews for next week. or I could be getting ahead of myself and misunderstanding the preview.

    For a few seconds I entertained the notion that the

    Spoiler:
    mole IS the Volm


    but then dismissed that as too obvious, so I considered that it was

    Spoiler:
    Hal because he is "telepathically" linked to Karen...


    but then I dismissed that because he

    Spoiler:
    knew both parts of the attack plan, so it couldn't be him.


    So I'm back to the original idea.

    Oh and WHAT THE FRAK??

    Spoiler:
    You have shiny new weapons that can take out a super-mech in one shot, but you forget to take them to the biggest battle ever, and don't even consider strapping one to Hal's platform?????


    JEEZ! no wonder we're on the menu.

    Still, who cares? Falling Skies is back!!!! YIPEEEE!

    I thought it was Hal as well, but the mole got the plans while they were traveling to the site, I think, so it couldn't be him. I have a theory about who it is but I'll keep it to myself

    Yes irked too I thought I had missed an episode I would like to see in a flashback how the initial meeting/alliance got set up with the Volm. And I don't trust them either they have their own agenda for sure.
    The super baby thing- I could do without that storyline. But we'll see how it plays out.

    Very strong season premiere. My wife couldn't watch it when I did, so I got lucky. I got to watch this twice in two days. I even picked up a few things I didn't notice in my first watch.

    Good episode.
    I reckon Tom is planning to seize the Volm weapon once it is completed for the resistance, with Pope men taking care of the Volm. Tom and Pope make the best double team on the show. Weaver will be pissed that Tom left him out of his plan to double cross the Volm. I don't think Weaver will be launching a rebellion anytime soon, as has been suggested on other sites, Weaver and Tom are just to close for that to happen.

    I am kind of hoping the creepy baby thing is just all in her mind, they all been through hell and back and it would be nice to see some consequences and it not exactly unknown for pregnancies to induce a mental melt down, that be a bigger surprise than Alexis actually being a super baby.

    It a shame Matt as entered the rebellious teenage stage, his character was better last season, playing the kid learning to fight.

    Very happy to see the show back, and with a bang indeed.

    It's weird to think Karen started out as a fairly sweet thing, and now is so Superbad. Indeed though, despite the actors (apparent young) age, she does a pretty convincing job IMO, but I have to say it did strike me as pretty unrealistic that she'd become the new boss - presume it was as much about saving on CGI than anything.

    I don't mind the "6 months later" (or however long it was), as it just adds that degree of mystery, trying to figure out all that's been going on since last we saw the survivors.

    Ahh - I'd forgotten about the Mole doing things at the same time that Hal had solid alibis... It really could be anyone... But it had better be a main character... Just too lame if they pass it off on some previously unnamed soldier.

    The mole is mostly likely the person who killed Manchester, an to me it look like it was a women walking along the corridor.

    I am thinking the mole is Tom chief of staff.

    True.. So perhaps the "super baby" is a plant BY The overlords to rule us from within.

    Super baby could also be a side effect of Anne's extensive use of the Volm tech while pregnant. I'm not putting my money on it, but it's a possibility.

    A lot of spoiler tags so far in this thread. Remember they're unnecessary except for references to events in 3x02 and beyond.
