The Event Returns: What Did You Think?

at . Comments

The two hour return of The Event brought us right into the thick of Thomas' plan and answered many questions we were left with from the winter finale. 

In the first couple minutes of "And Then There Were More," we learned that the signal Thomas sent out was to inform his people that they were preparing for their arrival.

Blake is not an idiot and quickly realized that this meant Thomas planned the arrival of their kind as a form of attack on our world. Therefore, he volunteered to oversee the questioning of the prisoners.

A part of me really would love to hate Blake, I would definitely want a man like him in our Presidential cabinet. Blake has proved time and time again that he is as loyal as they come. A true patriot.

The second hour of The Event, "Inostranka," mainly focused on Blake's and Thomas' visit to the prison facility.

Thomas realized that this was his opportunity to seek revenge for all the inhumane acts against his kind. Thomas was out for Blake's blood, but in the end, he got one of his own, Maya. This scene once again proved how cold-hearted Thomas has become. He may not have had the guts to kill his mother before, but I truly believe that if he had the opportunity to do it again, he would be able to go through with it now.

Because Maya propelled herself toward Blake, it proved that not all the aliens are as bad as Blake wanted to believe. Maya gave her life so that Blake could one day stop Thomas from destroying the entire human race. Hopefully, her character did not die in vain.

Sean and Leila

It was a shame to lose such a good actress so early on in the season, but if someone had to die, I was glad it was not Blake.

Elsewhere, as everyone probably already figured out from the last episode, Leila is part alien.

Michael confirmed that he definitely is one of them. From what I gathered, Leila and Samantha are not the only half-human/half-alien children out there - all the young girls that Dempsey was testing on are also like Michael's daughters.

Yet, we still don't know what Dempsey wanted with these girls and how it would correlate to Sophia and the rest of the aliens. Whatever the aging serum is, Dempsey used it to age himself. Could this mean that he is also not human and is using the serum as a way to blend in?

We also met Catherine Lewis this week. So far, we've learned that this Alaskan Senator not only has some brains in that pretty noggin of hers, but also knows how to play ball with the big boys. She may not know yet what Inostranka is, but I am certain she will learn everything she wants and probably a lot more.

After everything Sean risked to save Leila and be with her, I was shocked that Sophia wouldn't see this and allow these star-crossed lovers to be together. Michael didn't even know why, but he knew that Sophia's orders are not for questioning.

Sean, ever the good guy, walked away from Leila knowing it was best for her. How many people would let go and lose the love of their life after only getting them back a few days before?

What will happen next now that all the prisoners from Inostranka have escaped with Thomas as their new leader? Somehow these freely escaped prisoners will play a critical role in the battle between Sophia and Thomas.
