Gee... previous episode was all about "What will Lexi change into?"

Answer: Lexi with different eyes. Huge payoff on that one.

Another highlight was buddy blowing a hole through the head of the skitter directly between himself and Pope. What could possibly go wrong?

I got the impression that characters died simply because the writers were too lazy to deal with them in future episodes.

I could see the writing staff sitting there thinking that this was going to be their equivalent of the Red Wedding, when in reality I don't care that any of those people died. LOL.

They cleared out a lot of the supporting characters in this episode. I guess Mira Sorvino doesn't come cheap, someone had to get the axe to foot her salary. This episode felt like the producers had surveyed the season to date and realized these extra characters were doing practically nothing.

Are these the stupidest species to ever master interstellar space travel? They act surprised whenever a human has a gun or bomb.

I'll miss the hot and crazy mess that was Lourdes.
Though I half expected she would be resurrected when that camera panned over her at the end.

Homie expecting 400 yards with iron sights and a headshot? Yeah, whatever, kid.

Lourdes was definitely hot, but man was her character unbearable this year!

The usual bothering things ...
1) Gas main? Ok a main fine. Still has gas? Not likely
and as pointed out elsewhere
2) How does destroying a bridge delay Espheni? The walkers can probably walk the river with Skitters on their shoulders even if there aren't spare craft about (like the one Cochise shot down) ...

I don't even watch Game Of Thrones set skim some characters and I saw that wedding yet watch this entire show and this was nothing. I date character deaths yet I've seen this entire show and I really don't care. Oh, everyone blew up, okay now what?

I'd be upset if Maggie got killed off, but the rest of the cast could all die in a fire pit and it wouldn't upset me.

I care if some of the main main cast die, I rather most of them don't. For those who have died it almost odd how there is almost no impact.
