V Review: "We Can't Win"

at . Comments

With a title like last night's episode, "We Can't Win", one must wonder how any resistance member would have the slightest hope to defeat the Visitors.

Call us crazy, but we still think that the resistance can win! Why do you think the sniper was so certain that the humans will lose against the Visitors?


Each week we learn more and more about the Visitors and how the resistance is building - slowly but surely - against them - but we still don't know why? Why did the Visitors come to earth and pretend to be good when they have the ability and means to kill us all in an instant? Why put forth so much effort - especially if you lack any emotion?

Off topic - how gross was the opening dream sequence Chad had about Anna? Does this mean he wants to get it on with her? We think she is by far the creepiest character ever - on any show!

It was interesting to find out that Lisa is gaining human emotion. Now the question at hand would be if she has enough emotion to become one of the good guys and fight against her own mother. This situation will probably be one of the most important circumstances that will decide the fate of the human race.

One part that had us confused would be why Lisa's relationship with Tyler is so important to Anna and the Visitor's race? We still have so much to learn about the Visitor's and what it is they are after.

Scared Valerie

Valerie's pregnancy really has us on the edge of our seats! We foresee a baby alien bursting through her stomach (yes, we know it is very Alien like - but hey! Isn't that what is inside her!?). Since the baby will be half human - do you think it will look human or like a little baby lizard? We have a feeling this baby is going to look really creepy!

This pregnancy brings up a great question - how on earth did Ryan get on board, kill the Visitor, and escape with Valerie - without a single Visitor even batting a warning eye? Does Ryan have super alien powers we are not aware of - or did the writers fall a bit short on the realism here?

We love this show and the suspense it keeps us in each week. What did you think of last night's episode?! We love hearing what you think - so don't forget to leave your own review below!

Follow the jump for a few of our favorite V quotes from last night:
