On a somewhat slower episode of Falling Skies, the following events took place:
- Pope screwed over Tom and his crew when they went on a mission to retrieve motorcycles. They were also faced with the dilemma of the aliens using kids as shields, but escaped before they had to decide whether or not to actually shoot back at the children.
- Anne and Harris argued about the best way to communicate with the captured Skitter. It appeared as if he actually used radio airwaves in some way, as his moods affected communication equipment.
- The team managed to remove the harness from Mike's son, but he actually puts it back on himself following an interaction with the Skitter.
