The Event Review: "Loyalty"

at . Comments

We got a closer look into Agent Lee's past this week. This man has always left me the impression of being a stand-up guy...err, alien.

Never once did Simon falter from his people. He even left the woman he loved with out not so much as a goodbye. Does this make him a bad man? I just think it makes him devoted to his kind. 

Making a Decision

"Loyalty, therefore, was the perfect title for this week's episode. The scene where Simon finally meets back up years later with the love of his life was pretty heartbreaking. You could clearly see the feelings he had for this woman.

It makes everything then so clear because there has to be a big reason for such strong loyalty to Thomas. Simon's actions borderline on a level of obedience. What could be his motives be?

I really wasn't sure how Sophia would be able to escape. As cool as it was watching Simon's idea with spiking the creamer at the coffee shop, didn't he realize that the government officials will be able to trace it back to his group?

Now that Agent Lee trapped the government agent in the car, do you think this will come back to bite him? I really do like Simon and wish he would have used his common sense to escape with Thomas and Sophia when he had the chance. Now, by the looks of it, he's really trapped.

Speaking of Thomas and Sophia, where do you think they escaped to?

Now that they are reunited, what do you think Thomas has planned? I still don't understand why he can't just get the prisoners out of the detention facility. If he was able to explode this building, why couldn't he do something similar to get the detainees out?

Leila and Sean delve deeper into trying to find out what in the world is going on. They find out that Leila's father is somehow connected to it all. I really thought the writers would have Michael be deeply involved, not just some guy that stumbles upon the Mount Inostranka Detention Facility.

A new character that we're introduced to is Madeline Jackson. She's a reporter who been following Michael's case, or so she claims. Something is very strange about this lady and it really doesn't make any sense why she would show up at the Buchanan's home with a gun.

Now that Leila and Sean know that these people aren't really who made the plane disappear, do you think they will believe that aliens do exist? Since the source is so wacky, I could see them second guessing what she tells them.

I am a bit saddened that this show won't be on this coming Monday, but from the looks of the previews, we have a pretty intense episode in store for us the following week. What did you think of this week's installment?

I thought it was weird that a reporter would be watching the house...but maybe she was waiting for Michael to come back or something because some people were after her. I do think that maybe he just told her that was how he found out about the aliens to get information from her...that one bad guy did say he wasn't innocent....
