    Ok this is just me but I really, really hope they don't drag out the Pope vs Mason thing anymore. I want to see them battling the aliens and see the other militias so I hope that gets wrapped up in the next episode with either:
    1. Truce between Tom and Pope
    2. Pope getting killed off.
    sorry just how I feel.

    otherwise I really liked Weaver's talking Marty down.
    good speech.

    new character in Isabella?

    So pope is incensed that people are dying in a war under tom's leadership.. So what does he do? Shoots someone in the head as he feels they are non-essential. How is what he did any better?

    IMO pope has become someone who should just up and die!

    I chose not to watch this episode, after tuning in briefly a couple of times. One of those was when Tom shot Pope. And later when Pope was on his knees with blood coming out of his mouth. That was when I tuned out. I am curious, though, as to just how badly injured he was; it had to have been pretty bad.

    Actually, seeing how shocked Anthony looked at seeing pope gundown that 'recruit' just cause pope called him non-essential, made me think that Anthony might come around.

    Pope though seems to be a lost cause.

    Anthony & anyone following Pope can die. He had his chance. He can clearly turn on the second mass at any given time

    Pope has needed to die almost from his very first appearance.

    Yeah, Popes gone off the cliff a bit, but I felt this episode was a bit of a waste... Definately need to end this Pope vs Tom thing pronto!

    Only 5 episodes left and we havent even seen the other militias or any sort of plan to end the war...

    Hoping we dont get a rushed conclusion!

    It does seem like they will keep us on the rope for 'actually SEEING' those other militias.
    And what the F is going on with that gal who keeps appearing to Tom? What exactly IS this big mission they have planned????

    Agree completely. Most who have responded here don't seem to like the Pope vs Tom thing.
    Even though the episodes have already been written, filmed, ect so we'll have to put up with whatever's left.
    But they wasted valuable time on it IMO, when they could have been exploring other militias, ect.

    The gal that keeps appearing to Tom is his deceased wife, actually is one of the "good" aliens who race is now extinct? I believe and the appearances are the only way they can communicate with us. So it is an alien appearing as his dead wife Rebecca.

    I think Anthony will come around and abandon Pope

    Tbh, I'm pretty sure I remember them saying it was only going to be 5 seasons, if that's true, then their planning for the final season hasn't been very good...

    Just feels like they are going to rush the conclusion...

    1. I thought Pope was toast! He surely can't have much of a gameplan now!

    2. As people have said, where are the other militias?

    3. Well we know the 2nd Mass are off to DC...hope they don't hang around in getting there.

    I agree if there going to do a full on assault of DC, then why don't they organise some other Mason's Militia to join them, more people + more guns = a greater chance of success

    I loved how he effectively told "Her" to bugger off...
