V Season Finale Review: "Red Sky"

at . Comments

Last night marked the season finale of V - and we are so happy to say that this show is coming back next season!

Whew! What a close call that we weren't too sure how it would pan out! Fortunately for us V lovers, we can now anticipate the return of this amazing science fiction show!

First off, we feel that the writers ended the season with "Red Sky" the way that they did in order to give us some sense of completion.

A Baby Makes Three?

Maybe that is why Val gave birth to her half human/half alien baby and then Anna came in and killed her.

This allowed Ryan to be brought back under her wing - right? Or once Ryan got a look at his baby - would he see Val's face and still be a part of the fifth column?

Also, having Joshua risk his life to save the human race was definitely something we weren't expecting - considering he is a main character and central part of the fifth column. That is probably why he really wasn't killed off. But, now that he is alive, won't Anna just torture him until she gets all the information that she wants? How do you think this will pan out for Joshua? Will Lisa somehow rescue Joshua and bring him into safe keeping?

Speaking of Lisa, we were very excited to see that she picked the fifth column over her mother. Really, it came down to her choice if the human race would survive. Thankfully, her attachment to Tyler is as strong as it is. We can't wait to see what is in store for her next season!

Looking Happy

One part that had us a bit confused was Jack's letter. We thought that he said it wasn't meant for anyone. Why did Chad bring it to Joshua?

We loved how Jack took a stand against his parish to speak the truth to his parishioners and even brought in parts of the Bible with Revelations and false prophets. Almost all his parishioners left, but the ones that stayed - will they join the resistance?

We liked the mysterious red sky ending with Anna having felt her first human emotion. Will this mean she will strike vengeance against the entire human race? Is this just the beginning of a massive war? One thing is for certain, we can't wait to see what happens next season!

What did you think of the season finale? Leave your comments below!

Until next season, we leave you with a few of our favorite V quotes from the season finale after the jump!

Anna: What's happening to me?
Marcus: I believe you are feeling your first human emotion. | permalink
Jack: Let V no longer stand for visitor - let V stand for victory. | permalink
Jack: There is a war upon us. A war upon our souls. | permalink
Jack: People are worshiping them instead of God. | permalink
Kyle: And it's a clutch - not a handbag. | permalink
Joshua: You know she has a plan for Tyler - the humans. It's time for you to decide what side you're really on. | permalink

do you think that the V's have evolved so much tecnologically that thats the reason that thier emotions have become non-existent and obselete to them?
is that the point?

omg it's so annoying trying to find an explanation online..hardly anything! glad i found this.. ok so i get most of it i think but yeh i also got a bit lost with kyle and marcus's conversation but i'm over that.. I just don't understand the thing with the letter? at all! and i hadn't thought of the possibility of Marcus being 5th column..thats so interesting, i hope it's true!

Doing some research on the original series (1980's), it seems that the "red sky" is some kind of deadly gas or something that will eliminate all life on Earth. Although since Marcus, when trying to stop Anna from activating the protocol to deploy the gas, says something about it's too early, and if they do it something will happen. In the 1980's series, it also seemed that the only hope for humanity is to send out a call for other alien races to help them fight the V's. So perhaps the fifth column manages to infiltrate a satelite dish compound and send out a signal to other races (given direction by Lisa or Joshua). Nothing we can do but wait and see. The long wait is what pisses me off though. A WHOLE F**KING YEAR?!

I've enjoyed this show and will continue to watch but I do have a few issues. 1) Anna not only shows human emotion but all the way into the won't listen to reason mode is a bit much. Was this the first bad, albeit really bad, thing that's every happened in her life?!?
2) As others said the whole Joshua getting caught thing is a bit off. They got caught sending a message not to trust the guy who just set them up... I mean c'mon!!!
3) We don't know if he turns but Ryan seemed way to quick to listen to Anna's lies. He just explained how much of a viper Anna is before he left to protect Val.
4) Never liked Chad going from being very questioning of the V's intentions to Anna's lapdog. Nothing ever occurred that made me believe his characters sudden transformation. Finally, we're at the point we all saw with Chad being an ally to the fifth column.
5) Humanity is way to trusting of the V's and Anna's overtly manipulative tactics. Every person of power today would be putting so much spin on every move Anna made, I seriously doubt public opinion would be swayed to their side so easily. Hopefully the other side is addressed more firmly next season.
6) Blue/Free energy would probably result in instant wars (see the now worthless Middle East). You think we have a job problem today, this would be that x 1000. And what ever happened with it anyway?!
7) Agree with others on Jack being awful at this staying under the radar gig. Definitely would have been caught by now. Desires
1) Joshua's back story. This guy was in Anna's inner circle and we know little to nothing about him.
2) Don't make the whole red sky thing super weak. I know your going to do it... I'm picturing Looney Toons with a giant gun that ends up shooting a tiny white flag out instead of anything meaningful. Sorry, already way longer than I intended and I could still add more. I can't say I'm not disappointed by the number of leaps this show requires us to take but somehow I'm still interested and planning to watch next season.

what the hell did you write? Are you high?

This show is absolute garbage. It started out promisingly, but the writing has slipped, shining greater focus on the stilted dialogue, poor acting, and extremely one-dimensional characters.

With all the technology the V has, I wonder why they did not have at least a surveillance camera at the egg site. They would surely have seen Erica then. I think I would let Jack work for the other side. Great show!

An illusion it will be, so large, so vast it will escape their perception. Those who will see it will be thought of as insane. We will create separate fronts to prevent them from seeing the connection between us. We will behave as if we are not connected to keep the illusion alive. Our goal will be accomplished one drop at a time so as to never bring suspicion upon ourselves. This will also prevent them from seeing the changes as they occur. We will always stand above the relative field of their experience for we know the secrets of the absolute. We will work together always and will remain bound by blood and secrecy. Death will come to he who speaks. We will keep their lifespan short and their minds weak while pretending to do the opposite. We will use our knowledge of science and technology in subtle ways so they will never see what is happening. We will use soft metals, aging accelerators and sedatives in food and water, also in the air. They will be blanketed by poisons everywhere they turn. The soft metals will cause them to lose their minds. We will promise to find a cure from our many fronts, yet we will feed them more poison. The poisons will be absorbed trough their skin and mouths, they will destroy their minds and reproductive systems. From all this, their children will be born dead, and we will conceal this information. The poisons will be hidden in everything that surrounds them, in what they drink, eat, breathe and wear. We must be ingenious in dispensing the poisons for they can see far. We will teach them that the poisons are good, with fun images and musical tones. Those they look up to will help. We will enlist them to push our poisons. They will see our products being used in film and will grow accustomed to them and will never know their true effect. When they give birth we will inject poisons into the blood of their children and convince them its for their help. We will start early on, when their minds are young, we will target their children with what children love most, sweet things. When their teeth decay we will fill them with metals that will kill their mind and steal their future. When their ability to learn has been affected, we will create medicine that will make them sicker and cause other diseases for which we will create yet more medicine. We will render them docile and weak before us by our power. They will grow depressed, slow and obese, and when they come to us for help, we will give them more poison. We will focus their attention toward money and material goods so they many never connect with their inner self. We will distract them with fornication, external pleasures and games so they may never be one with the oneness of it All. Their minds will belong to us and they will do as we say. If they refuse we shall find ways to implement mind-altering technology into their lives. We will use fear as our weapon. We will establish their governments and establish opposites within. We will own both sides. We will always hide our objective but carry out our plan. They will perform the labor for us and we shall prosper from their toil. Our families will never mix with theirs. Our blood must be pure always, for it is the way. We will make them kill each other when it suits us. We will keep them separated from the oneness by dogma and religion. We will control all aspects of their lives and tell them what to think and how. We will guide them kindly and gently letting them think they are guiding themselves. We will foment animosity between them through our factions. When a light shall shine among them, we shall extinguish it by ridicule, or death, whichever suits us best. We will make them rip each other's hearts apart and kill their own children. We will accomplish this by using hate as our ally, anger as our friend. The hate will blind them totally, and never shall they see that from their conflicts we emerge as their rulers. They will be busy killing each other. They will bathe in their own blood and kill their neighbors for as long as we see fit. We will benefit greatly from this, for they will not see us, for they cannot see us. We will continue to prosper from their wars and their deaths. We shall repeat this over and over until our ultimate goal is accomplished. We will continue to make them live in fear and anger though images and sounds. We will use all the tools we have to accomplish this. The tools will be provided by their labor. We will make them hate themselves and their neighbors. We will always hide the divine truth from them, that we are all one. This they must never know! They must never know that color is an illusion, they must always think they are not equal. Drop by drop, drop by drop we will advance our goal. We will take over their land, resources and wealth to exercise total control over them. We will deceive them into accepting laws that will steal the little freedom they will have. We will establish a monetary system that will imprison them forever, keeping them and their children in debt. When they shall band together, we shall accuse them of crimes and present a different story to the world for we shall own all the media. We will use our media to control the flow of information and their sentiment in our favor. When they shall rise up against us we will crush them like insects, for they are less than that. They will be helpless to do anything for they will have no weapons. We will recruit some of their own to carry out our plans, we will promise them eternal life, but eternal life they will never have for they are not of us. The recruits will be called "initiates" and will be indoctrinated to believe false rites of passage to higher realms. Members of these groups [Editor´s Note: the Illuminati] will think they are one with us never knowing the truth. They must never learn this truth for they will turn against us. For their work they will be rewarded with earthly things and great titles, but never will they become immortal and join us, never will they receive the light and travel the stars. They will never reach the higher realms, for the killing of their own kind will prevent passage to the realm of enlightenment. This they will never know. The truth will be hidden in their face, so close they will not be able to focus on it until its too late. Oh yes, so grand the illusion of freedom will be, that they will never know they are our slaves. When all is in place, the reality we will have created for them will own them. This reality will be their prison. They will live in self-delusion. When our goal is accomplished a new era of domination will begin. [N. of Ed.: the New World Order]. Their minds will be bound by their beliefs, the beliefs we have established from time immemorial. But if they ever find out they are our equal, we shall perish then. THIS THEY MUST NEVER KNOW. If they ever find out that together they can vanquish us, they will take action. They must never, ever find out what we have done, for if they do, we shall have no place to run, for it will be easy to see who we are once the veil has fallen. Our actions will have revealed who we are and they will hunt us down and no person shall give us shelter. This is the Secret Covenant by which we shall live the rest of our present and future lives, for this reality will transcend many generations and life spans. This covenant is sealed by blood, our blood. We, the ones who from heaven to earth came. This covenant must NEVER, EVER be known to exist. It must NEVER, EVER be written or spoken of for if it is, the consciousness it will spawn will release the fury of the PRIME CREATOR upon us and we shall be cast to the depths from whence we came and remain there until the end time of infinity itself.
